View Full Version : How to setup a DA2 server

Hey guys, just wanted to post this here to redirect you to our manual for setting up a basic DA2 server.

A quite big amount of people have requested Player Vs Bot servers, something DA2 currently supports.

Can you post an example server startup command?

I'm erroring out with:
./ucc-bin server DA2-LastHope.ut2 -mod=DA2

I assume gametype or something is missing.

Try using:

Start-> Run

X:\UT2004\UT2004.exe -server -mod=DA2

Console window will show up if all is fine then use command servertravel da2-<mapname>. If you had your server settings setup in DA2 or UT2004 it should already use them, like number of bots etc.

However, you can still use addbox <number> to add bots into the server.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the quick reply. I'm looking specifically to launch a linux server from a command line. I haven't had any issues with other mods, so I figure I have something missing in the command. This is what I see:

./ucc-bin server DA2-LastHope.ut2 -mod=DA2 --nohomedir

The issue has been resolved by re-installing DA2 from the zip file and launching the server with the following command:

./ucc-bin server DA2-BlackGold.ut2 -mod=DA2 -log=server.log
