Description: Operation Flashpoint: Resistance Linux Server v1.96

This is the dedicated Linux server for Operation Flashpoint version v1.96 direct from Bohemia Interactive.

Operation Flashpoint: Resistance - Linux Standalone Server 1.96

Copyright (c) 2002-2003 Bohemia Interactive Studio and Codemasters. All rights reserved.

Installation instructions:

1. Following programs must have been installed on your Linux-box: uudecode, gunzip, gcc. Optional: md5sum (for setup integrity check)

1a. On some newer verions of Linux (this was reported for RedHat 9 and Gentoo linux 2.4.20) the NSCD deamon must be installed to run OFP server successfully. Caching of DNS would be sufficient.

2. Copy the whole "OperationFlashpoint" directory from Windows to some Linux-directory (OFP). DON'T DO ANY DATA CONVERSIONS (even "dos2unix" translation of text files is not necessary). Example: you can use PKZIP (WinZip, PowerArchiver, etc.) on Windows and "unzip" on Linux.
Don't use upper case letters in the OFP directory name (/home/bob/ofp will be good, /home/bob/OperationFlashpoint may cause some troubles).
OFP directory should contain subdirectories "Addons", "Bin", "Campaigns", etc.

3. Copy the "server-x.xx.shar.gz" (x.xx is version number) file into the OFP directory. Unpack and install it with commands:

ofp$ gunzip server-x.xx.shar.gz
ofp$ sh server-x.xx.shar

Watch the messages - they will inform you whether your installation is successful.

4. Dedicated server can be started in foreground:

ofp$ ./server

Or in background:

ofp$ nohup ./server > out.txt 2> err.txt &

5. Running server can be stopped by pressing CTRL+C (foreground) or by executing:

$ kill -s SIGINT

Where is process-id of mother server thread (printed out in "nohup" command).

6. From 1.92 OFP server has a new feature: command-line parameter "-pid=". It causes creation of with PID of root OFP process. If IP port specified in "-port=" parameter is busy (in usage), OFP will terminate immediately and won't be written.

7. The "ofpserver" script is provided for automatic server start/restart/status query/etc. Please be sure to edit CONFIGURATION PARAMETERS in lines 14 to 20 !
After this is done, install (hard-link?) the script into "/etc/rc.d/init.d/ofpserver
