Setting up a Dedicated Server

IMPORTANT

The MSP patch has removed functionality for non-dedicated server hosting. Running the AVP2serv.exe program is the only way to host a server while using the community MS patch


This guide will help you on your way to setting up your very own AVP2 game server! This guide works with both Windows and Linux distributions.

Windows

First, 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.

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 maos you want to be in circulation.

Remember: All worlds will be input in this manner:

Map## = "worlds\multi\Game_Mode\Map_Name"
