Killing Floor 2 game server

In Killing Floor 2, there is no option to create a server, as there was in Killing Floor 1. This guide will help you to set up a dedicated server so that you can play this game with your friends and prevent others from playing with a password if you wish.

Setting up the server

1) Launch the Steam client and go to the game library, find Killing Floor 2 Dedicated Server in it.

2) Install it to your computer, then right-click on the game Killing Floor 2 and click Properties.

3) Select the Installed Files section on the left and click the Browse button on the right.

4) Locate the command file in the Killing Floor 2 installation folder. It will be called "KF2Server.bat".

5) Run this file and open Killing Floor 2, you will find the server in the LAN section in the main menu option - Server Browser.

Server settings

To change the settings of your server, right-click on the file "KF2Server.bat" and select "Edit", or open it in your text editor (Notepad or Notepad++).

When you do this for the first time, you will see this line:

start .\Binaries\win64\kfserver kf-bioticslab

This is a basic dedicated server. When adding parameters, note that they are all appended to the end of the map and do not contain spaces.

For example:

start .\Binaries\win64\kfserver kf-burningparis?ServerName=TS Server?Difficulty=1?GameLength=2?AdminPassword=somethingsecure?GamePassword=PrivateGame

List of basic commands:

AdminName -- this is the admin username for your WebAdmin, if you use it, and for logging in through the console in the game

AdminPassword -- is the password to enter the admin mode

MaxPlayers -- the number of players allowed on the server at any given time

Difficulty -- sets the difficulty of the server, 0 = "Normal", 1 = "Difficult", 2 = "Suicidal", 3 = "Hell on Earth".

Port -- changes the port on which the server is waiting for a connection

QueryPort -- changes the QueryPort, changing the Port value without changing this parameter will automatically change this parameter as well.

WebAdminPort -- the port on which the server waits for http requests to access the web-based admin panel

Multihome -- if the server can recognize multiple IP addresses, this command binds the server to a specific IP address

ConfigSubDir -- creates and reads configuration settings from a value specified as a directory, also allows you to set individual server settings using INI files

Don't forget to save and then restart your dedicated server. Friends and other players can join your server through the Steam menu or by inviting them in the lobby.
