Our game server is a 64 bit AMD box with 4 GB of RAM running 64 bit Debian Linux. One of the many games we run on this powerful server is Elite Force, using the a 64 bit, modified version of the secure (and much improved) ioquake3 engine.
The altFIRE Elite Force server runs a default map cycle in "Holomatch" mode, with a timelimit of 20 minutes and a fraglimit of 15. When either is reached, the next map will load.
We have opted to NOT password protect this server, so even unregistered readers can play!
Getting and installing Elite Force
You will need a copy of Elite Force and it's expansion pack to connect to the server and play. If using Windows or Mac OS X, just buy a copy and install. We would also highly recommend installing ioEF to add extra features and enhancements to your Elite Force multiplayer installation (eg. faster custom map downloads by using http to a web server).
If you are using Linux, you should use the Elite Force Linux Installer (you will still need the original CDs). As with Windows, we also recommend you install the Linux version of ioEF for additional multiplayer enhancements.
Note: you will not necessarily NEED the expansion pak files if using ioEF to connect to the server, as ioEF ensures you are running the same version of the game as the server. Plus, we have purposefully NOT used any of the expansion pack maps in the DM server cycle, so no download issues :)
Connecting to the server
As long as your version of Elite Force is up to date (and compatible), connecting to the server is simple. To connect to the server, do the following:
1) Start Elite Force
2) Drop the command console using the ' key (usually beside number key 1)
3) Type the following to initiate the connection:
If this is your first time connecting to the server, your client will download a required file, pak92.pk3, if it does not already exist on your system. You should allow this download to complete.
That's it - enjoy! Any problems, let me know (email@example.com).
