Problem Hosting STK server on OSX

Postby sNuntz » 13 Jun 2019, 22:25

Hi,
I'm trying hosting STK server on Mac Osx
I tried to compile STK with -DSERVER_ONLY=ON
When STK start in a terminal it ends with an error message: "[fatal ] main: Couldn't initialise irrlicht device. Quitting."

Someone know a beginner's guide for hosting STK server?
Sorry for my bad english, i prefer italian

You can just use the normal stk binary, it should work too

Thanks for the quick response
I was able to start the server
What's the difference between mine and that marked with ☆★STK★☆ ?

☆★STK★☆ are servers recommended by stk team

the database will be written when new players connect / disconnect, though you don't seem to follow advice on max players limit

If Mini7 STK server is yours, it doesn't seem to compile in latest master (so server management is useless anyway)

I downloaded version 1.0 for mac
In a terminal type "/Applications/supertuxkart.app/Contents/MacOS/supertuxkart --server-config=mini7_config.xml --network-console"
The server start
but the database is not written

Now i try to set "<ranked value="true" />" in config but should I ask someone for this ?

u need to compile git stk-code yourself or wait for next stable release, which should be soon (~2-3 weeks, alayan!)

I tried to compile the stk-code, but afterwards I am stuck on the error message: "[fatal] main: Failed to initialize the irrlicht device.

I can confirm the issue on my system, opened https://github.com/supertuxkart/stk-code/issues/3965 to track the bug.

Would you please stop creating a ranked server without permission?

Sorry, we already have enough ranked servers.

And can you git pull and try server only build in osx again?

Can i tried to host server build on osx again
In the latest git solved -DSERVER_ONLY=ON compiling's problem

But I still haven't figured out how to get the sqlite3 database written by stk
I created the file stkservers.db but it remains blank
