Exclamation DCS World Open Beta Dedicated Server

Description.

'DCS World Open Beta Dedicated Server' installer install special DCS World version which intended to work as a dedicated server and doesn't contains textures and sounds. Installed server takes approx. 52 GB on HDD and works as a full-functional server controlled only by WEB (i.e. without any GUI features). This version already includes ALL available terrains and WWII units module, works without 3D graphics and sounds.

Terrain and WWII units doesn't asked activations when launched in server mode without rendering, server owner shouldn't buy them.
NOTE: these 'free' terrains can work ONLY on dedicated server without rendering. You can't use them on client.

You can download installer from our site DCS World 2.5 Open Beta Dedicated Server

Installation.

Run installer, choose separate folder and install it as usual. Note: if you have previous server version based on DCS World client, uninstall it before. Installer will install DCS World base as well as all terrains and WWII units modules.

Write folder for dedicated server is: Saved Games\DCS.openbeta_server

You don't need to add command line keys (--server and/or --norender) into launch icon, server will start with these options by default.

Update: server checks update every day when launched (like DCS World).

Server control:

A. Local Web control. Just open link 'Local Web GUI' created after installation on your desktop

B. Remote Web control. Login to DCS site, go to you Profile page and select your server in list.

Server deployed as a one module, terrain can't be excluded.

Dedicated Server uses default ports:

10308 TCP and UDP for DCS
8088 TCP for web-control

You can easily restrict your firewall only to this IP for DCS web port and access webgui from your site account.

A lot of information you can take here: DCS Server Control

Great Work Rik, I shall have a go at getting this set-up today (once link available)


Question: How do I stop it running auto update ?
Reason: A lot of us use scripts (eg batch files to launch / re-start DCS servers) having it auto update might cause issues - unless the auto update requires no interaction ?

thanks !! that is great!
one questions, when we use mods, are we to apply them to this new server install like before, e.g. is the file structure the same?

Question: Can you opt out of installing certain terrains for the Dedicated package? In example, if I want only Caucasus and Persian Gulf, can I decline Nevada and Normandy, to reduce the size of the install?

EDIT: Or at least, can I remove terrains directories from the installation, post-install without it causing issues? (as long as I only run Caucasus/Persian Gulf missions offcourse).

Question: Do we still need a DCS account for this server ?


You cannot start DCS.exe itself to launch the server you have to use the DCS_updater.exe
if you try to use DCS.exe it will throw a wobbler and ask for keys for terrains


EDIT: Unless you use dcs.exe --server --norender --webgui
