I’ve been hosting a server for the past 15 months, and intend to keep it live after launch. In all this time, whenever I need to reboot the game or server or needed to install a newer version, I have been pressing CTRL+C to close the server down.
The trouble with this is that it doesn’t give my players any warning. Before launch, I’d like to learn how to send the players a warning, to say, In 10 Min the server will be rebooting.
Without needing to first launch my own game, what should I do to send a warning to the players from the server side? The game-server is open in a DOS screen running on a Windows 2012 Server OS.
FYI - The server name is : An Isle Of Pit (currently Testlive only- this will change on launch to be main branch)
