How to set up a Skulltag server.
« on: May 12, 2009, 03:13:09 PM »
  • Download Skulltag at http://skulltag.com/.
  • Install Skulltag.
  • Choose to "Play Online" in order to start Internet Doom Explorer - Skulltag Edition (IDEse). There's an alternative server manager called IDE (what IDEse is based on) that you can get at http://doomutils.ucoz.com/.
  • Click the "Start Server" tab.
  • Fill out the information as you see fit. Suggestions include naming your server something like "Chex Quest United--[my name]," and using zorcher as the Rcon and Server password.
  • Click "START Server" in the corner.
  • This will launch the console. Closing this out will close the server, so keep that in mind.
  • Get back into IDEse and click "Servers."
  • Click "Ra" to Refresh All Servers.
  • You should see your server on the list. You can click on it to join if you want to.
  • If you're having trouble hosting, and you're on a router, try using PortForward.com - Free Help Setting up Your Router or Firewall.
Suggestions, comments, and questions are welcome.

The main issue with hosting is the fact that we all mostly have routers. I'll post a generic guide to port unblocking, if you'd like.

Sure. That might help the router people.

Ah, Manny, that's just what I was about to put up myself.  I still have that PM you sent me a long time ago about how to set up a server.

"Ye olde Skulltag Chex Quest The Ultimate Phase I hosting instructions as set forth by Manny Cav," you called it.  :D

Actually, its very complex how to do port forwarding, as every router is different...I just suggest browsing portforward.com to do it.
