Battlefield 2142 Linux Dedicated Server is a Battlefield 2142 server for Linux systems.

The year is 2142 and the dawn of a new Ice age has thrown the world into a panic. The soil not covered by ice can only feed a fraction of the Earth's population. The math is simple and brutal: some will live, most will die.

In Battlefield 2142, players choose to fight for one of two military superpowers - the European Union or the newly formed Pan Asian Coalition -in an epic battle for survival.

Armed with a devastating arsenal of hi-tech weaponry, including assault rifles, cloaking devices and sentry guns, players will also take control of the most lethal vehicles known to man. Massive Battle Walkers wage fierce combat on the ground, while futuristic aircraft rule the skies. When taking on this futuristic armor players will need to use their wits and an arsenal of new hi-tech countermeasures like EMP grenades and smart mines to level the playing field.

Titan Mode- Wage epic-scale war to defeat your opponent's Titan, a massive flying warship, controlled by the team's commander. Players must destroy the Titan's shields, board the craft, fight to it's reactor core and detonate it from the inside all while defending their own Titan.

64-Players Online*- Experience all-out war with Battlefield's legendary multiplayer for up to 64 players.

Real-Time Persistence- To the victor goes the spoils! Equipment, medals and other rewards are awarded in-game and in real time. Choose an unlock and have access to it immediately next time you spawn. The game features five times more unlocks than Battlefield 2.

Customizable Abilities- Gamers can expand their abilities and blend multiple player classes to match their play-style.

Lethal Vehicles- Gamers control menacing Battle Walkers that stalk the land and futuristic gunships that patrol the skies. APC's and high-speed recon vehicles keep the action fast, furious and unpredictable.

High-Tech Weaponry- EMP grenades, sentry guns, smart mines, cloaking devices, and more change the rules of the Battlefield forever.

The world has changed- Fight for survival on the Battlefield of the 22nd century in brand new locations from Minsk to North Africa as the ice presses down from the North.

* Internet connection required for online play.

Quick start

- Run the server installer and follow the instructions.


Please note that if you choose to install the server over an existing installation the existing installation directory will be removed!


$ sh

- Modify mods/bf2142/settings/serversettings.con to your taste.


$ cd /path/to/installation/bf2142
$ vi mods/bf2142/settings/serversettings.con

- Modify mods/bf2142/settings/maplist.con to your taste.


$ cd /path/to/installation/bf2142
$ vi mods/bf2142/settings/serversettings.con


Please see the information below to understand the new map list format.

- Run the server from within the top-level directory by typing
./ [arguments] from a shell.


$ cd /path/to/installation/bf2142
$ ./

- If you are starting the server from a remote connection you will need to encapsulate it inside a "screen" session to let it stay behind when you log out from the shell.

Example (to start the server):

$ cd /path/to/installation/bf2142
$ screen ./

Now press Ctrl-A followed by Ctrl-D to detach the screen session, leaving it
running in the background. You can now log out without affecting the server.

Example (to reconnect to the server status monitor):

$ screen -r

Usage: < directory > [--pretend] [--verbose]

You can simulate the actions of the script with these options:

$ ./ mods/yourMod --pretend

When you're certain it looks good run the conversion:

$ ./ mods/yourMod --verbose

Known issues

- You must set sv.allowNATNegotiation to 1 in order to broadcast all instances
of overlay servers.
