Please pardon the noob question…
I would like to setup Quake 3 on a rented Q3 server using ioQuake, but I’m not even sure if that’s possible. My basic plan:
- Buy Quake 3 on Steam for my friends and I
- Rent a Quake 3 server from GameServers.com
- Use ioQuake to run Quake 3 on Windows 10 PCs
- Use old bot skins & hi-res pack
Will that work?
Do I have to do anything special to get ioQuake working with a rented game server?
that all should work, I don’t know what kind of access gameservers.com gives you to run custom code, however we do have instructionds for setting up a game server here: http://wiki.ioquake3.org/Sys_Admin_Guide
those are most useful for doing so on a VPS from linode, digital ocean, or another provider.
and we also have a players guide:
Thanks TimeDoctor. Alas, however, that SysAdmin guide has no instructions for running a server on Windows, which is all I have access to. I will ask gamerservers.com if they can run ioquake. Should have thought of that first. Thanks!
