Want to run a Quake 2 Master server ?


Wondering how We or, netdome.biz or exhale.de run their masterserver in Quake 2? Here's little program that will make you able to host your own masterserver on your Linux-shell!. It neatly also supports other games like Heretic and etc.


Quake 2 masterserver sourcecode:
Linux tarball Download (quake2masterbeta.tar.gz)!

cd to dir
type 'make'

if there is an error, you need to delete line 528 and 559 from masterserver.c , it is due to an older library... then it will compile

after make type
make install



Now you must add this to crontab, for auto launch of masterserver upon reboots

# Make rlogin.dk:27900 run!
*/10 * * * * pidof masterserver || { masterserver &exit >/dev/null 2>&1; }


this must be added as a normal user in crontab -e, due to security risk, do not run as root...


Now master.rlogin.dk:27900 works!!
If you are a serveradmin, I urge you to use our masterserver on your dedicated Quake 2 server... just like you use netdome.biz....

setmaster netdome.biz rlogin.dk


This way you have redundant masterservers,if one goes down.





Example of Master server running...!


You can test your running quake 2 masterserver by quakestat in linux, or using gamespy. Here I test using Linux:

If you haven't changed port to 4444 like here, it is 27900 (default in quake 2)

Faq:


Why run one?
it keeps quake 2 alive
the more masterservers the merrier, after gamespy shut down theirs, it is hard to find servers

a masterserver makes browsing using standalone tool,program a possibility

without you would have to use google each time to find servers (and we all know they're nasty)

gamespy rox

Benefits?
The more masterservers the more redundant the game becomes
10? then players can always find servers,if one goes down, still 9 good ones left that has 200+ servers on each

Requirements?
About dual isdn net speed, it is not a huge loader. It is mostly text only.

The short ddosses can make net more required, but they last short

Normal quake2 servers are ddossed more, than the masterservers in my experience
