Editing the server options and starting the server

You can now start the server by simply double clicking on "Just Cause 2: Multiplayer - Dedicated Server".

But before we do that let's configure our server.

Head over to where you have installed Steam, by default this is

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\...

Now navigate to where the dedicated server is located.

C:\Program Files(x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Just Cause 2 - Multiplayer Dedicated Server\...
In that folder, you will find a file named
default_config.lua

Rename this to config.lua, and then open it by right clicking and selecting "open with" then choosing Notepad or any other text editor.

Once you have opened it, you can edit your server slots and many other options there. For additional information, read the readme that is in the same folder. Simply follow the instructions in the config and readme, and have fun with your server.
