Has anyone made multiple servers run on one machine? The machine running treadmarks here should be able to run another server, say CTF, but I don't know if this is possible, if someone can drop me a note telling me how to do this I can add another server, at the moment I don't have time to figure it out.

You can run multiple servers on the same machine with different dedicated configurations and only one set of data.

1. Create copies of dedicated.cfg with different names and different settings.

2. Create shortcuts that run TM.exe with the dedicated config file name as the parameter. Example:

TM.exe dedicatedDM.cfg
TM.exe dedicatedCTF.cfg

When you run the short cuts, multiple instances of the dedicated server will be run.

If you wish to run servers for different versions, you'll need multiple installations of the game (like if you wanted to run 1.5.5 and 1.5.8 servers).
