Option #2: Creating a Core Keeper Server From Your Home Computer or Dedicated Server

Server Requirements

Windows 7, 8, 8.1, Server 2016, Server 2019 & 64-Bit

Quad Core processor (requires up to 2 full cores)

Up to 16GB memory (currently uses around 12GB memory minimum and up to 15GB of memory for a full server)

5GB disk space (install folder)

Step 1: Fetching Game Server files

The best method to get dedicated server game files is via the dedicated server depot on Steam via SteamCMD.

  1. Create a folder where you wish to store your Core Keeper game server hosting files
  2. Inside of the folder, place the newly downloading SteamCMD.exe file
  3. Create a batch file named SteamCMD.bat
  4. Place the following code in this batch file:
@echo off
start "" steamcmd.exe +login USER PASS +force_install_dir "C:\Some\Path\Where\You\Want\Game\Server\Files\To\Go" +app_update 1963720 validate +quit
  1. Right-click SteamCMD.bat and Run as Administrator
  2. Your game server files should be completely downloaded by now

Step 2: Setting up a Core Keeper Dedicated Server

  1. Create a batch file named CoreKeeper.bat in your newly created Core Keeper server folder from step 1
  2. Place the following code in this batch file:
start CoreKeeperServer.exe -batchmode -ip XXX.XXX.XXX -port 31777 -maxplayers 100 -world 0 -worldname MyWorld -datapath "Saved" -worldmode 0 -seed exit
