start openRPG server on boot


I am trying to find a way to start up the openRPG server at boot-up. The problem seems to be that when it runs, it brings up a prompt (it doesn't run as a daemon). When I try to run it with "python start_server.py &" it crashes, so that won't work.

I played around with trying to get it to run inside the screen command, but since it prompts and doesn't end, I can't get it to detach the screen afterwards.

If it's easy to do, I wouldn't mind just making tty6 auto-login with my username and run the server, but I can't figure out how to do that either.

Basically, I don't care how it runs, as long as I can get it to run automatically at boot.

Thanks in advance.
