  • My advice is to not use game panels. You can do even more via SSH, so game panels are just a hassle.

    That is always the case. But OpenGamePanel (FREE) and gsp (PAID) are not that bad ...

  • init.d and the command line are your best friends when it comes to game server hosting on Linux imo.

    What sort of games are you looking to host? Steam games or other proprietary engines?

    I am hosting privately 15 Steam games on one of my boxes alongside a couple of non steam games and 2 Minecraft servers.

    More than happy to share my scripts with you if you want them.

    Hi :>

  • There was once something called Mint Panel, not sure if it is still around but I used to hear people raving about it.

  • GamePanelX than OpenGamePanel are the 2 best free one's.

    Would appreciate a pm.

    I just need to get an idea of what is happening in that area.

    Cheers guys

  • Before you do anything, if you're on 64bit Linux then you'll need to install some special libraries for SteamCMD to work.

    Ubuntu/Debian - apt-get install ia32-libs

    Ubuntu 13.10 - apt-get install lib32gcc1

    RHEL (CentOS, Fedora) - yum install glibc.i686 libstdc++.i686

    Now what you'll want to do is download and run SteamCMD as that is used to obtain the game files for most Steam games now.

    https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/SteamCMD

    You want to follow the instructions in the first part really (Downloading and Running SteamCMD). The automation options are helpful too, I use the +runscript option myself.

    Once you have got your game files you'll want to obviously get a server up to test and to configure.

    The below is just an example of the startup script I use for a Garrysmod server running the Trouble in Terrorist Town gamemode. Copy the below script into a file and just save it as something like gmodttt or whatever you want really. You'll want to save this in /etc/init.d/

    pastebin.com/dZGmctER

    This script, when run, will create a screen session with the name TTT and immediately run the command /steam/SteamApps/common/gmodcgttt/srcds_run -game garrysmod +maxplayers 40 +ip X.X.X.X -port 27015 +gamemode terrortown +map ttt_67thway_v6 -secure

    Make sure to edit the DIR= option and NAME= to something suitable to you. DIR= needs to be the folder where your srcds_run file is and you want to leave off the trailing slash.

    You'll also want to put your IP in and if you know of any extra command line options for you game then just add them in with mine in the PARAMS= option.

    Last step is to make it executable and you're good to go.

    To start it, simply enter service <filename> start

    To stop it, use service <filename> stop

    To restart is, service <filename> restart

    To view the command line type screen -r <nameyouputinNAME-casesensitive>

    You'll now see you're server starting and eventually running.

    As an extra, if you want to start the gameserver everytime your VPS/Dedi server boots then type just type update-rc.d -f <filename> defaults as root user.

    I think that's the basics you need to know, if you have any questions just ask!

    nice ,,,

    truly helpful.

    Do you know any good sites or forums with resources to avoid google noise

  • I don't, sorry. I am a Google whore - if I need something I Google it :)

    Hi :>

  • http://gameap.ru/ is some good software, about 98% is in good english(or something that you can get idea of what it does). It can install and start/update servers.

    Wiki is in russian, but translate can fix dat
