Hosting On A Mac --- The Complete Guide!

Sooo, all you mac users out there feel left out, is that what i am hearing? Well i did too, until a good friend named R3@per taught me how to host on a mac. I heard it was possible, and knew it was possible. But every tutorial i read on hosting was dedicated to Windows and Linux, and only had a little side note on Macs. The other hosting tutorial had mac instructions, but i found them not to work for me. I do not know about you guys, but then again, it did not work for me!

First, drag Sauerbraten.app to your computer's Applications folder.

Now, create a folder called "sauerbraten" in the hidden /etc/ folder.
Next, now open txt editor (or the program you prefer) and in the text
editor put:

maxclients 20
serverbotlimit 5
serverdesc "Server Name Here"
adminpass Password
servermotd "Motd Here"

Now save this as server-init.cfg (YES IT NEEEEDS TO BE .cfg FILE!)

Now place this in the /etc/sauerbraten/ folder.

Now, from the command-line, run:
/Applications/Sauerbraten.app/Contents/MacOS/sauerbraten -d -k/etc/sauerbraten
-R3@per

THIS IS ONE COMMAND, THERE IS A SPACE AFTER THE -D AND NO SPACE AFTER -k/etc/sauerbraten !

I believe you can add what ever mod you want, you just put it in the /etc/ folder as the cfg, then just do -k/etc/sauerbraten. To find the /etc/ folder just go into finder and search for etc, it's file path should be library/private/etc, you must have admin account AND know your password to authenticate for /etc/ to be modified. If it doesnt let you then click Authenticate when it gives you the can not be modified message!

I hoped i help some of you guys out there, and if any of you need help just comment (and i will answer) or ask on teamlol.clanteam.com (not advertising :D) OR email me... if all else fails, at fetzernoah@gmail.com!
