Remember not to delete ‘=’. You can edit only the things that are on right side.


  • gameport= it’s a port that is used to connect with the server. Remember to use
    an opened port!
  • servername= The name of the server that will be shown in the server browser.
  • serverdescription= The description of the server that will be shown in the server browser.
  • maxplayers= Amount of players that can join the server. Min. 1 – Max. 64.


8. Come back to the main folder and run “StartServer”.

If you set up everything correctly the server after about a minute should show this:

**Warning: When the server is run it can be shut down ONLY by typing in a command: /server.shutdown
Closing the server by exit button may cause errors!


9. Type in /help in the console to see all available command.
