My and my brother are wanting to create a server and we can't find any kind of tutorial or guide to show how to do it. Hoping for some help. We've even considered donating to get the server in the featured server list. Please message me here or e-mail me at

Should be in the documentation when you download the files. ( I think anyways, been a while since I've done an install. ) Please read the readme files. You will need to find a host that will let you run one, that can be a tricky feat as the game can be cpu hungry and many hosting providers wont let it run for too long.

What I'd suggest is do some practice runs on your home machine till you get comfortable with the setup before you go crazy spending the cash on hosting.

Search these forums there should be many messages that will help, but the first thing you will need is a web server that supports php and mysql.

The best solution is a linux solution, but if you just want to play around installing it on a windows machine you can start by downloading xampp you can find it here: http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html

Note: make sure you get a version that is running version 5.2x of php, as I don't think the game is 5.3 compatible. (not a 100% sure though, something to think about when looking for a hosting provider)

Here is a link to a 5.2.x version of xampp
http://www.oldapps.com/xampp.php?old_xampp=44

This will at least get you started.
