This page describes how to setup the server.
Download server binaries
We need to download server binaries from GitHub.
Once you have the respective archive downloaded, unpack it to an empty folder.
After your first server launch, several folders will get generated. One of which is our
config folder which contains
server.json SJSON config file. Check it out to see possible options you can set up:
max_players = 64 name = "<name>" host = "<ip-to-bind-to>|<empty>" password = "<password-or-empty>" visible = true port = 27010 mapname = "freeride" bridge_inbound = "ipc://oakwood-inbound" bridge_outbound = "ipc://oakwood-outbound" whitelist = false
Setting up your resources
Your server is now ready and running. However, we need to provide a resource which will define the gameplay logic. The server alone only takes care of game sync and state control, but does not contribute to the gameplay itself.
If we'd like the players to join our server, shoot each other, spawn vehicles or even chat, we need to code a resource which will take care of that. Oakwood does this intelligently, as it exposes a public API of methods your resources can call (and also triggers events you subscribe to) by remote process communication.
