As a Battlefield 1942 fan, I’ve been playing and participating in BF1942 communities, and together with a friend and coleague, Levi, a.k.a Monsenhor we have founded ourselves a smal community/clan, and whenever possible, we have contributed.
I have setup some GNU/Linux dedicated servers, and being a sysadmin, it has always been a repetitive straight forward task. But to the average goodwill game server admin wannabe, Unix syntax and structure are not routine.
So we set up to create a tool to help us have a smoother faster install, and maybe help others out there.
And as a result, here is the announcement of this simple but hopefully useful tool:
“The Injustos Battlefield Clan is happy to announce the first release of its project InjusTools: ‘InjusTools_Install_BF1942′, a free GPLed shell script to help setting up a Battlefield 1942 GNU/Linux dedicated server, downloading, installing and configuring the server itself, latest patches, most popular mods, and a remote server manager daemon.
Basic security measures are taken, so that the server manager and BF1942 itself can be run as an ordinary user, with write access restricted to logging.
Just download it at any GNU/Linux server, and execute it as any shell script logged in as ‘root’ administrator.
Get help and support at our InjusTools Project website at http://injustools.sourceforge.net/.”
This tool will be used to develop a new and generic installation tool, and soon you will receive more good news.
