The APPID for download a KF2 server from SteamCMD is:

app_update 232130

example:
login anonymous
force_install_dir ./KillingFloor2Server
app_update 232130 validate
quit


Example launch batch file:

start .\Binaries\win64\kfserver kf-bioticslab?difficulty=0

This will launch the game on Biotics Lab on Normal.
Hi Yoshiro,

I've downloaded the server and added the exception to the firewall but am unable to see it. Ive tried to confirm the ports in use, but it seems like every config file references another config file.

Can you confirm which INI's we should be using to config?

Also, since updating the client to 1003 on a seperate machine, I am unable to see any server including the local one. Any suggestions for this?

I have downloaded and installed the server, but Steam is currently down and I cant test.

Can you confirm the config INI's we should be using Yoshiro?

Steam has returned, as have the official servers, but I still cant see the server on the LAN tab with the default configuration.

I can see port 7777 is listening and open in the firewall.

Testing out the INI's seems to finally lead back to installdir\KFGame\Config\PCServer-*.ini

I've changed the port and confirmed through netstat that all is functioning there, but I am still unable to see any game in the LAN tab.

And finally for the last post, All seems to be functioning now. My console was not updating with a Steam Game server UID, which I will chalk up to being an issue with Steam...

An easy way to configure your server is through the Web Admin interface. You can enable and access this by changing:

In the following file: ..\killingfloor2server\KFGame\Config\KFWeb.ini

Change bEnabled=false to bEnabled=true

Start your server with:
start .\Binaries\win64\kfserver kf-bioticslab?adminname=USER_HERE?adminpassword=PASS_HERE?difficulty=1

You can then access the Web admin interface at: http://localhost:8080 or remotely from http://serverip:8080

Log in is the user and pass you set in the batch file.

Is there a way to specify the ip and port on the command line ?

Also is the steam port dependent on the servers game port

For anyone else missing libraries, you'll need to isntall DirectX and the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package

Would like to know the ports as well, nothing I have tried in Gametracker is working, yet the server is up and populated. :)

Thanks, I tried 7777 and 27015 as the query over at Gametracker, still no joy, maybe they need to update their query for the KF2 Servers?

I've updated some of the information on the wiki for hosting. Some of those items will not come online until the next server build.

This last post may have answered my question, but I am going to ask it anyways.....


If I load up the dedicated server that's available now, and eventually when the new build is available, all I will have to do is run the steam cmd app update and it will make it will make the server(s) compatible for the pre-release (retail) version of the game?


The release date on Tuesday is OK, but this upcoming week is going to be crazy for me. The less I have on my plate the better. I just want to have the MI crew happy and playing on some servers as soon as I can = )
