       pioneers-server-console - command-line game server for Pioneers


       pioneers-server-console [ OPTIONS ]


       This manual page documents briefly the pioneers-server-console command.

       Pioneers  is  an implementation of the popular, award-winning "Settlers
       of Catan" board game for the GNOME  desktop  environment.   It  uses  a
       client/server  model  for  networked  play  of  between  two  and eight
       players.  This program provides a  console-only  server  that  pioneers
       clients can connect to.


   Application options
       -g,--game-title  game  title  Load the ruleset specified by game title.
       The title can be found in the *.game files. You need quotes for  titles
       with spaces.

              Load the ruleset in the file filename.

       -p,--port port
              Use port port for player connections.

       -P,--players num

       -v,--points points
              Specify the number of "victory points" required to win the game.

              "Sevens  rule":  Specify gameplay behavior when a player rolls a
              seven.  A value of 0 (the default) means that  rolling  a  seven
              always  moves  the  robber.  A value of 1 requires the player to
              re-roll if a seven is rolled on the first two turns.  A value of
              2 means the player always re-rolls.

              Choose  a  terrain  type:  0  for  the  default, or 1 for random

              Start up num computer players.

              overridden   with   the   -m   option.   Default   meta   sever:

       -m,--meta-server metaserver
              Register this  server  with  the  metaserver  at  the  specified

       -n, --hostname hostname
              Use   this   hostname   instead  of  the  hostname  reported  by

   Miscellaneous options

       -a,--admin-port port
              Listen for administrative commands on port port.

              Don't  start  the  game  immediately;  wait for a command on the
              admin port (-a) instead.

              Give players numbers according to the order they enter the game.

              Enable debug messages.


       The default settings of the server can be influenced with the following
       three environment variables:

              The hostname of the meta-server when no meta-server is specified
              on the command-line.

              The hostname of the server.  If it is not set, the  hostname  is
              determined by hostname(1).

              The  path  to  the game definition files.  If it is not set, the
              default installation path will be used.
