Steam Dedicated Server

Post by supagu » Sun Feb 28, 2016 10:55 am

Hi, I tried to host a factorio dedicated server so a group of us can play anytime, but the problem is it requires steam. This means I cant have it hosting a game for me to connect to unless as I have to be logged in on my server in steam to host the game.

Is there a way to host a game without needing steam so I can connect. I don't want to have to setup a separate steam account and buy a second copy of the game to have a dedicated server running.

did that too, but then switched to non-steam version, we need to see about updates somehow...

Code: Select all

wget https://www.factorio.com/get-download/0.12.24/demo/linux64
tar xvzf linux64
cd factorio/bin/x64
./factorio --create 1
./factorio --start-server 1

you get the SteamAPI_Init steamclient.so missing error too?
Me too, see here: viewtopic.php?f=53&t=20600

If you found a solution, please share :)

You just run the demo as the dedicated server? does that work for full version clients?

No, it doesn't. You have to download the headless version that you can find here.

I get an error trying to run this:

Code: Select all

factorio
   0.000  Error Util.cpp:49: There is no package core in /usr/share/factorio
i tried copying the extracted zip to /usr/share/factorio to see if it had to be in that directory but same problem.
