PixARK – Server Configuration Guide

Server Configuration 

In this guide we define the options on configuration and some basic commandline parameters.

Note: Read this guide before to make server configuration: https://www.en.magicgameworld.com/pixark-dedicated-server-setup-guide/

The best method for a self-hosted solution is to use the provided .batch file. Inside pixarkserver\ folder where you downloaded the game files, create a bat file e.g. start.bat

Inside the .bat file enter in this:

start “” /NORMAL “C:\pixarkserver\ShooterGame\Binaries\Win64\PixARKServer.exe” “CubeWorld_Light?listen?MaxPlayers=10?Port=27015?QueryPort=27016?RCONPort=27017?SessionName=MYSERVERNAME?ServerAdminPassword=YOURADMINPASSWORD” -NoBattlEye -nosteamclient -game -server -log

Change parameters as required e.g. change max players to max players desired.

Change sessionname to the name of your server.

Change admin password for admin\rcon purposes.
