Good news! I was able to get a "What Rocks" server up! :)

To be able to connect, the start line has changed a little bit.

For the vanilla server:
Code:
loader.exe -hsn "i-war2 GOG" -hip "i-war2.com:2313"

For the "What Rocks" Server:
Code:
loader.exe -hsn "i-war2 WR" -hip "i-war2.com:2314"

I chose to load the Academy mod by default, which is this nice baby here:

Warning: Spoiler!


One disadvantage: I can only run one DirectPlay service, so they both depend on that one dpnsvr.exe which seems to crash from time to time. If one of the servers goes down, both go down :pinch: I've tried to isolate them, but they keep running into each others ports. Damn you, Microsoft!

So I won't open any third one until someone buys me a second server :P

Space. The final frontier.

Hope this is not too stupid a question :

In the on 'home' site highlightened arcticle about the server been set-up. it's said that it runs on a Linux server.

Does this mean I have to run a Linux OS too ? ... or would I bee able to connect to the server with the game installed on a windows machine ? (win7 prof 64 bit).

You can run the game on any OS you like and still connect to the server. ;-) I was just a little bit proud of getting this thing to run on a Linux machine (which wasn't easy).
