pioneers-server-gtk - graphical game server for Pioneers
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.
Pioneers accepts the standard GTK+ commandline options.
The default settings of the server can be influenced with the following three environment variables:
|The hostname of the metaserver when no metaserver is specified in the user interface. (The settings file takes precedence)|
|The hostname of the server. If it is not set, the hostname is determined by hostname(1) . (The settings file takes precedence)|
|The path to the game definition files. If it is not set, the default installation path will be used.|
/usr/share/games/pioneers/*.game and $XDG_DATA_HOME/pioneers/*.game
