 +===== Windows =====
 +
 +First, [[:​setup|download and install the AVP2 game]]
 +
 +
 +When the full game installation has finished, head on over to the main AVP2 directory (The folder where you have specified the game to be installed: DEFAULT is '​C:​\Program Files (x86)\Fox\Aliens vs. Predator 2\'
 +
 +What you're going to want to do is have an idea of what kind of server(s) you want to host. It could be a DM server, a Survivor server etc.
 +
 +With that in mind, go to the **ServerData** folder inside the AVP2 main directory. You will see a text document that goes by **unnamed.txt**. Open that with a text editor of your choosing.
 +
 +Inside the text document you will see parameters for a potential server to be hosted. ​
 +
 +{{:​generalguides:​serversetup1.png|}}
 +
 +You will see game mode tags with maps and server specific parameters specified. Venture to the game mode tag [//​GameMode//​] and edit the map list underneath, to what maps you want to be in circulation.
 +
 +**Remember: All worlds will be input in this manner:**
 +<​code>​
 +Map## = "​worlds\multi\Game_Mode\Map_Name"​
 +</​code>​
 +
 +The map numbers (Map01, Map02, etc.) should always be sequential from top to bottom. And the location should **always** be between to quotation marks

 +//
 +
 +**PortID** - //Specifies the port the server will run on. **More than 1 server running on the same network must use a separate port number.** Picking a number between a range of 27880-27889 is a good rule of thumb. Port forward these ports in your firewalls for your server to be visible in the server list//
 +
 +**Password** = //Specifies the password to be used for a **locked** server//
 +
 +**LANConnection (0,1) ** =  //Specifies whether the server should remain only visible to your LAN or not. Leave at 0 for your server to be visible to the world.//

 +
 +**ServerName** = //Your server name, obviously.//​
 +
 +**SCPassword** = //Server Control password. This is **not used** in the MS patch, The MS patch uses a community created Admin system//
 +
 +**Bandwidth** = //Specifies the speed at which your server handles data from incoming player connections. It is advised to leave this at 10000000. Lower integers will make your server laggy.//
 +
 +**GameType (1-8)** = //Specifies the game mode//
 +
 +//**1** = Deathmatch//​
 +
 +//**2** = Team Deathmatch//​
 +
 +//**3** = Hunt//
 +
 +//**4** = Survivor//
 +
 +//**5** = Overrun//
 +
 +//**6** = Evac//

 +==== Further Fine Tuning of your server ====
 +
 +The Preferences tag in your text file in the **ServerData** folder
 +
 +{{:​generalguides:​serversetup3.png|}}
 +
 +**LocationDamage (0,1)** = //Location based damage, if set at '​0',​ any area of a player'​s body that is damaged will deal the same health drops.//
 +
 +**UseNetNetcode (0,1)** = //Leave at 0.//
 +
 +**Speed** = //Change at own risk.//
 +
 +**DamageScale** = //Changes the overall damage dealt, this setting usually is left unchanged by all server admins, use at own risk//.
 +
 +**Exosuit** = //Specify the number of Exosuits to exist in a map at the same time (**Support is by a map-by-map basis**)//
 +
 +**RespawnSpeed** = //Change at own risk.//
 +
 +**QueenMolt** = //Specifies the killstreak necessary for an alien player to molt into a queen//
 +

 +
 +**FriendlyNames (0,1)** = //Toggles whether a player'​s name shows on the screen when pointed at them//
 +
 +**ClassWeapons (0,1)** = //Toggles whether Marine/​Corporate characters have their own weapon sets (**Does not work with AllWeapons enabled**)//​
 +
 +----
 +**MORE SERVER SETTINGS IN SERVERCONFIG.TXT**
 +
 +Open **serverconfig.txt** in the Main AVP2 Directory to enable/​disable more features. They follow the same format as the preferences shown above (1 or 0 for true and false respectively) and the names are self explanatory,​
 +
 +----
 +==== Running the Server ====
 +
 +In the main AVP2 directory, run **AVP2Serv.exe**. It will automatically load up your server configurations and run. If you have created more than one server config in the **ServerData** folder, it will ask you to choose which one.
 +
 +Documentation for setting up Admin privileges and basic Admin commands are in **readme_server.txt**
