Q3A Linux Server Download

Post#1 » Fri Dec 17, 2010 4:53 pm

EDIT: 26.03.13 Fixed masterservers, Added ddos iptables firewall scripts

Hello, here is something I have complety forgotten collecting dust on my harddrive for quite some time.
It let's you create a dedicated gameserver for Quake III Arena for the Sega Dreamcast 'out of the box*'.

I rechecked all the content corrected some errors and think it's ready to put here.

The biggest difference to other methods mentioned elswhere for creating a dedicated Quake III Arena server are,

A: Size difference only 27 Megabytes (.Mb)
B: No need to upload the whole Quake III Arena CD content to the remote server
C: Preconfigured server configs for vanilla gameplay 'ffa,ctf...'
D: Optional some serverside mods and tools (rcon,serverstats)

Download q3a-dc-dedserver.tar.gz
Untar the archiv
Edit Serverstartup scripts eg. ffa.sh for free for all server (username and directory)
Open Server Ports (firewall,router) see README 'Network Ports:'
Start server

SHA1 HASH: 12c4464a2f2f6de9ff7caa49e5fb1aa7f80ca1c0

DDOS Firewall scripts


If I find errors inside this release, or feel like to release some kind of usefull addon that users will benefit
you can find these 'updates' on the following website

Also any good or bad feedback is apreciated


I hope you find this package/collection usefull

It's been a very long while since I've seen you online. Good to see you still around in the Dreamcast world.

Thank you for this!

I used your packages as the basis to set up a couple servers. "Tainted Merkin" is the server name. Some scripts had to be tweaked and re-written a bit, but it eventually worked. The only issue I'm having is staying persistent in the master list. Some times I show up, some times I don't. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to it. Any ideas?

They aren't on a real great connection right now (looking for a new host), but it seems to work OK.

The one at 27960 is a standard FFA
The other (27961) is where I'll be working on server mods. Right now, it's either "last man standing" or "Freeze tag". But I plan to work on a few of my own in the near future.

Both currently allow voting.

Incase you wan't to use this as a base for your server. Please update 'global_masterservers.cfg' with the following code. Or nobody will find your server.


Also check out the following ddos fixes

I'am using solution 2
