More game servers

Post by trigrhappy »

I've been using dietpi for a while now and I absolutely love it. With it, I'm able to install all the media software I want to run, easily and headlessly. I also use my dietpi computer to run other server software for my children, but I have to do so manually and its comparatively "clunky".

Similar to what Dietpi already has done with the various minecraft dedicated servers, it would be great if we could add additional dedicated servers for other popular games.

A few suggestions:

Quakeworld (supports x86 & arm)
Ark: Survival Evolved (only x86)
Assault Cube (x86 & arm)
FreeCiv (x86 & arm)
Unreal Tournament (x86 only)
Half-Life 2 based Games (you do one, you essentially do them all the same way... CS:S, CS:GO, Left4Dead, TeamFortress 2, Sven, Gmod, etc) (x86 only... i think)

By no means is absence of these features in dietpi criticism. Far from it. I absolutely love dietpi and how easy, flexible, and stable it is.... they're just well meaning requests for software I'd absolutely love to run (easily) on my dietpi server.

This might help
Linux Userspace x86 Emulator with a twist

Box86 lets you run x86 Linux programs (such as games) on non-x86 Linux, like ARM (host system needs to be 32bit little-endian).

It would be an addon emulator, not sure if the devs could take a look into it and pre-compile a package or something

honestly I'm not sure. As you know, DietPi is developed and maintained by a single person. And the list of open items is quite long already.
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team
