I added this to the wiki http://manicdigger.sourceforge.net/wiki ... e_a_server

Ok so you want to make a manic digger server to play with others or with friends so lets start.


First off Lets download .net Framework SP2
If you already have this then skip if you don't know just install it again.

Find out if your a 64 bit or not.
Do Start > Right Click computer > Properties > Then look at picture

If you are a 64 bit download this.
http://bit.ly/i7z35X
If your not a 64 bit download this
http://bit.ly/hzlzHd

Now after you have installed .net framework 2.0 SP2
We will go and open the server then configure it.

If your 64 bit go to
C:\Program Files (x86)\Manic Digger
Not 64bit
C:\Program Files\Manic digger

After you have browsed to that location open up
ManicDiggerServer.exe

Let it load then X out

Now lets configure the server add a server name, MOTD, Op password etc
browse to
C:\Users\Computername\Documents\ManicDiggerUserData

Computer name is the name of your computer

Open ServerConfig.xml in your favorite editing program i suggest Notepad

We will see this
Code:
<ManicDiggerServerConfig>
  <FormatVersion>1</FormatVersion>
  <Name>Manic Digger server</Name>
  <Motd>MOTD</Motd>
  <Port>25565</Port>
  <MaxClients>16</MaxClients>
  <Key>1403d002-3552-46db-b71f-e527e329d060</Key>
  <Creative>True</Creative>
  <AllowFreemove>True</AllowFreemove>
  <Public>True</Public>
  <BuildPassword></BuildPassword>
  <MapSizeX>10000</MapSizeX>
  <MapSizeY>10000</MapSizeY>
  <MapSizeZ>128</MapSizeZ>
</ManicDiggerServerConfig>



<Name>Manic Digger server</Name> = Change Manic Digger Server to what you want you server to be called
<Motd>MOTD</Motd> = Message under server name
<Port>25565</Port> = Manic Digger Port
<MaxClients>16</MaxClients> = How many people can get in.
<BuildPassword>Pass here</BuildPassword> = Make it to where you have to allow people to build (pervents Greifers)

Once you have changed all of that were going to port forward now.

Your going to have to know how to port forward by your self.

After all that go run ManicDiggerServer.exe again and your server is up!

If you need any help reply below or if i left any thing out.
