Dedicated SFD server soft without GPU (server OS)

Post by Mr Moher » Sat May 26, 2018 5:44 pm


I would like to suggest an update to dedicated server software. Unfortunately, one of it requirements to run is GPU. I don’t know how much SFD processing is done server-side, but it would be nice to host some dedicated servers on VPS.

As this suggestion will be taken into consideration please let us know if there is any chance to get software for dedicated servers on Linux (that will be using only CLI). It would be easier than wine and does not need any license as Windows server ;)

From what I have seen XNA requires a graphics card to even start.
In order to make a server run we need to remove XNA as a dependency from the game. I don't think it's impossible but it would require a lot of work and two separate executables - something we don't prioritize now.
