LocalSO is a cross platform Stick Online server emulator written in Python. It works with the Stick Online client version 0.0227 and implements all features supported by the original game server.
The purpose of this project is to preserve Stick Online for all of its past players and fans. The official server was shut down long ago, and there is no source code available.
There is a public LocalSO server running. More info available at https://www.local-so.com/.
- Python 2.7.4 or later (2.7.14 recommended).
- The latest LocalSO release.
On Windows, run
start_server.cmd and complete the first time setup:

Connecting To The Server
Before connecting, obtain a copy of the Stick Online client version 0.0227. It is available at www.stick-online.com.
To connect with an unmodified client, you must add two entries to your hosts file. Use notepad or another text editor to add the following two entries to
127.0.0.1 stickonline.redirectme.net 127.0.0.1 www.stick-online.com 127.0.0.1 stick-online.com
Start the client and it should connect to the server.
Note: you will not be able to connect to the official www.stick-online.com website without undoing these changes.
