Hi,
as there never seem to be servers available, I was wondering if there any plans to release dedicated server software for Necrovision. I guess most people don't want to open up a game and sit in a map till someone else finally joins. :)
I would like to test / play multiplayer, though. And I (and maybe others) could host a 24/7 dedicated server, provided the (linux) software was available.

Any info about this would be very nice, thanks in advance. :)

1-I've stumbled across some "if IsDedicatedServer() then" and "if Game.GMode ~= GModes.DedicatedServer then" in the game scrits and there is a "Cfg.DedicatedServer = false" in config.ini so it might possible to run a dedicated server under windows (if those lines aren't remnants of painkiller's code that the devs forgot to remove). Anyway I'd suggest to look at how to run a painkiller dedicated server and transpose the method to necrovision.
2-For a linux dedicated server use wine or give up.
