DOOMSDAY-SERVER(6)	     FreeBSD Games Manual	    DOOMSDAY-SERVER(6)

NAME
     doomsday-server - Doomsday	Engine multiplayer daemon

SYNOPSIS
     doomsday-server [-stdout] [-port tcp-port]	[-iwad dir] [-game mode] [-v]
     [-file file ...]

     Note that the command line	is not interpreted according to	GNU conven-
     tions. Everything following -- is ignored.	 @ can be used to specify a
     response file whose contents are added to the command line.

OPTIONS
     -stdout   Prints all log entries to the standard output. If this option
	       is not used, nothing is printed so that the server can be run
	       as a background process.

     -port     TCP port	that the server	listens	to for incoming	connections.

     -iwad     Specifies a directory where to look for IWAD files. Doomsday
	       will search for IWADs from all known games and automatically
	       load them when needed. Note that	you can	also use the DOOMWAD-
	       DIR environment variable	or the paths configuration file	to
	       specify the location of the IWAD	files.

     -game     Sets the	game to	load after startup. See	doomsday(6) for	a list
	       of available games. For example:

		     -game doom1-ultimate

	       If -game	is not specified and the server	is unable to choose a
	       game automatically, the server will quit.

     -v	       Print verbose log messages (also	-verbose). Specify more	than
	       once for	extra verbosity.

     -file     Specify one or more resource files (WAD,	LMP, PK3) to load at
	       startup.	More files can be loaded at runtime with the load com-
	       mand.

     In	addition to these, doomsday-server supports many of the	command	line
     options of	doomsday(6).

OPERATING A SERVER
     Doomsday servers are, by default, silent daemon processes intended	to be
     run in the	background. You	need to	use the	Doomsday Shell to monitor
     their status and control them.
