How to run quake 1 - TF dedicated server on linux console?


I would like to know if you guys have a tutorial of how to make a quake server on linux. I would like to run it with Team Fortress and make some kind of ranking to display on a site.

Damn, quake 1 is the best game ever!

No, we don't. I'm pretty sure of that. Wasn't that just making sure you got all the deps, config, mods and running Quake sever binary from a screen session? Make sure you lock down the admin console. No on needs a grapple hook :-]

That's just installing the right mod stuff, innit?

Dunno. Spose there's software for it. Either check regular source like Freshmeat or Sourceforge or ask any Quake hoster.

Dunno bout Q1 but playing QW league was loads of fun.
If you got the server up announcing it in this thread would be cool.

I've never ran Quake 1 on Linux, but I loved the game (as well as Team Fortress) when I had it installed.

Setting up a server (either listen or dedicated) was simple in Windows and I can't see why it would be any harder in Linux.

Try following these steps... (I haven't tried these.)
  1. Install the game and make sure that it's working. I would recommend a modern client instead of the standard one, as it would probably have an improved netcode, and therefore less latency.
  2. Download the Team Fortress mod and simply unzip it to the Quake directory. This should create a directory called 'fortress' if I recall correctly.
  3. I guess that you have your network settings and firewall setup correctly, right? If so, you should be able to start the server. Run the game like this with these command line options... '<quakeclient> -game fortress -dedicated <number of players>'

That's all you really should need to do. I have no idea about how to setup the web interface however, since I've never used one. Here's a website of one that should teach you all you need to know.

...and post the address once it's running!
