quake2-server — classic first person shooter (dedicated server)
Synopsisquake2-server [WRAPPER-OPTIONS] [ENGINE-OPTIONS] [ENGINE-COMMANDS]...
DescriptionThis manual page documents briefly the quake2-server command.
Quake II is a popular first-person shooter game, released in 1997 by iD Software. This wrapper script will launch the Quake II engine. The game data needs to be installed independently using the 'game-data-packager' program, and by default it will be looked for at /usr/share/games/quake2 and /usr/share/games/quake2-demo.
This wrapper script accepts a few GNU-style options. Any further arguments are passed to the engine unmodified. Consult the engine documentation for full details, but most engines support a syntax where you can give console commands by prefixing with a plus sign.
In addition to any arguments on the command line, the quake2-server script automatically passes the arguments "+set dedicated 1" to the engine.
