Hi,

I would like to fire my own OR server on a "computer as a service" and I can't find the server code to launch for that. The OR documentation only says for that : "the server code is not part of OR", but no more. Where can I find this code? Is it a general purpose game server code, and if so, what is its name?

More information about my question:

For a multi-player session you have to way for doing that:
1 - run Open Rails as a server mode on your computer : your computer will be the server and you will be the dispatcher,
2 - run Open Rails as a client, giving the IP address and a port by choosing one among those proposed by Tsimserver.com.
I would like to perform a third one: run a server on a computer as a service, and afterwards, run OR as client on my PC, giving the IP and port of that computer as a service (or better : a public URL).

Thank you for your help.

As you also say, Open Rails is able to run as a network server and multiplayer server in multiplayer mode; therefore the network and multiplayer server software is included in it, and it provides a full functionality.
What is not included is the server code used in the public server tsimserver.com, which however performs quite analogously. That code has been separately developed by Jijun Tang (nick JTang in this forum), which also kindly puts at disposal this public server to the OR community.

Hi Carlo,

Thank you for the answer. So shall I ask to JTang or is the repository public and known?

The repository of Open Rails is public, see here https://github.com/openrails/openrails . As far as I know the source repository of the tsimserver software is not public; you might ask JTang about it.
