Here, we're going to setup some of the essentials of the game server. Below is what is going to be used on our game server:

What the 'General' tap should appear

DMFlags

What the 'DMFlags' tap should appear

Check the following that is listed below:

  • Weapons Remain after pickup
  • Spawn players as far as possible
  • Automatically respawn dead players
  • Kill anyone who tries to exit the level
  • No monsters
  • Items other than invuln. and invis. respawn
  • No jumping
  • No crouching

Start the game server

There is tabs such as DMFlags2, Compat. Flags, and Custom parameters, however - in this tutorial we will need not to worry about them for now. Thus, all that must be done now - is to start the game server by clicking the 'Start server'!


Use various settings!

This guide is simply a 'quick start' and we purposely left off many cool tricks. However, always feel free to be adventurous when setting up a new server, for example, survival invasion.
