I don't really think that you can use the same source code for Linux. But could be possible of course.

Why don't you write an email to the programmer? Also show him our topic. He will be impressed :shake:

The author of Java Dosbox Server reply me today here is the mail :
Hi,

nice to see you are using this program. The cool thing about Java is it's cross-platform. You can run the program on Linux by opening a console, going to the directory and run 'java Main' or 'java Main 1234' for a different port. Of course you need a JRE installed.

As a small sidenote, you say you need Hamachi if using DOSBox only. But this is not the case, the server built into DOSBox works the same way as
my standalone version does.




quiete interesting info , thank you
Now we can test server on GNU/Linux and get the stability of this Operating system :)

enjoy :cheers:

Grabbed the palette from the game, so now images look exactly like in the game :D
By the way, in one of the files you could see Firetruck:????
