NAME

pioneers-server-gtk - graphical game server for Pioneers

SYNOPSIS

pioneers-server-gtk [options]

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the pioneers-server-gtk command.
Pioneers is a computerized version of a well known strategy board game. The goal of the game is to colonize an island. The players play the first colonists hence the name pioneers. It uses a client/server model for networked play of between two and eight players. This program provides a GUI-configurable stand-alone server which you connect to from pioneers itself.

OPTIONS

Pioneers accepts the standard GTK+ commandline options.

ENVIRONMENT

The default settings of the server can be influenced with the following three environment variables:
PIONEERS_METASERVER
The hostname of the metaserver when no metaserver is specified in the user interface. (The settings file takes precedence)
PIONEERS_SERVER_NAME
The hostname of the server. If it is not set, the hostname is determined by hostname(1) . (The settings file takes precedence)
PIONEERS_DIR
The path to the game definition files. If it is not set, the default installation path will be used.
