What works

Web server (everything in the web server work, except the game server process starting)

What does not

  • Starting game server from web server.
  • Server seem to bind on first network interface and server is not reachable when connecting not from localhost (see workarounds)

When starting game server from web server, in logs I am getting below messages:

0160:fixme:ntdll:EtwEventSetInformation (deadbeef, 2, 000000000089B3F8, 43) stub
0160:fixme:kernelbase:AppPolicyGetProcessTerminationMethod FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFA, 000000000011F560

and in server logs file, I am getting these:

[07/Jan/2023:13:18:12] Error: Unable to start game server process
[07/Jan/2023:13:18:12] Unable to start game server


I've tried to spin it up in Docker container. The trick of accessing web server:

  1. In dedicatedServer.xml, set web server port to 8081
  2. start dedicated server (Docker container) and port forward "8080/8080/tcp".
    1. Doesnt work with --net=host
    2. Web server binds on and won't accept any connections that are not from
    3. Either setup NAT rule or spawn reverse proxy. E.g. using Caddy it can be achieved using one liner: caddy reverse-proxy --from :8081 --to localhost:8080
  3. access web server in the browser:

What was not tested

Game server itself (web server does not start game server process)

Additional Comments

Here is how (attempt to) dockerize it:

1. Create Dockerfile:

FROM alpine:3.17.0

# Install wine & other dependencies
RUN apk add --no-cache ca-certificates wget samba-winbind-clients libldap bash caddy krb5 libldap wine

# Install winetricks and disable crash messages
#RUN apk add --no-cache --repository= winetricks
#RUN env WINE=/usr/bin/wine64 /usr/bin/winetricks nocrashdialog

# Prepare/configure mountpoints
RUN mkdir -p '/root/.wine/drive_c/users/root/Documents/My Games'
RUN ln -s /data '/root/.wine/drive_c/users/root/Documents/My Games/FarmingSimulator2022'
RUN mkdir -p /game

# Setup docker image
COPY --chmod=0755 /

2. Create

caddy reverse-proxy --from :8081 --to localhost:8080 &
/usr/bin/wine64 "$@" &
wait -n
exit $?

3. From your Windows PC, copy game files to docker image workspace. Name the folder "game".

4. From your Windows PC, copy directory "...\Documents\My Games\FarmingSimulator2022" to docker image workspace. Name the folder "data".

5. Build docker image:

docker build -t f22:0.1 .

6. Run docker container (I did not forward game server ports, just web ports for testing):

docker run --rm -it -p 8080:8081/tcp -v `pwd`/game:/game -v `pwd`/data:/data f22:0.1 /game/dedicatedServer.exe

7. After lots of errors/warnings, you will see this:
