Game Server Startup Script project is a startup script to manage dedicated game servers like Quake3.
Game Server Startup Scripts is a startup script to manage a wide variety of Linux dedicated game servers. It can start/stop/restart/fix dedicated game servers like Quake3, Half Life, Tribes 2, UT2K4, BF1942 and others.
It uses qstat through cron to validate that a game is running as expected. If a game is not running as expected, the game is automatically restarted from the script through cron.
GSSS was written becuase I wanted a way to start up a variety of games in a standard way. Then I also wanted to make sure the games stayed running even after a crash.
So I wrote this perl script. It will start games and through a cron job make sure they stay running. If you have qstat installed it can also verify the game is running like it is suppose to be and not in some strange state where no one can play.
If the game is running but unresponsive, it kills it and starts it again. You can also stop running games cleanly as well.
