pioneers-server-gtk - graphical game server for Pioneers
This manual page documents briefly the pioneers-server-gtk command. Pioneers is an implementation of the popular, award-winning "Settlers of Catan" board game for the GNOME desktop environment. It uses a client/server model for networked play of between two and eight players. This program provides a GUI-configurable stand-alone server which you connect to from pioneers itself.
Pioneers accepts the standard GTK+ commandline options.
The default settings of the server can be influenced with the following three environment variables: PIONEERS_METASERVER The hostname of the metaserver when no metaserver is specified in the user interface. (The settings file takes precedence) PIONEERS_SERVER_NAME The hostname of the server. If it is not set, the hostname is determined by hostname(1). (The settings file takes precedence) PIONEERS_DIR The path to the game definition files. If it is not set, the default installation path will be used.
