Running multiple instances of the Server


Here is an example on how to run multiple instances, assuming the Halo CE Dedicated Server is installed in the C:\HaloCE folder:

instance 1:
C:\HaloCE\haloceded.exe -exec C:\halopc\init1.txt -cpu 0 -path C:\haloCE\variants1 -port 2301

instance 2:
C:\HaloCE\haloceded.exe -exec C:\halopc\init2.txt -cpu 1 -path C:\haloCE\variants2 -port 2305

Running A Halo CE Dedicated Server
Creating a Batch File to Run the server

There are several command lines parameters that can be used to control the operation of the Halo CE dedicated server. It is often times easier to create a batch file to contain all of these options on a single command line.

To create a startup batch file:

Open Notepad (or a similar pure text editor)

On the first line enter:

start {drive}:\{path}\haloceded.exe -exec {drive}:\{path}\init.txt

Click "File" > "Save As" and then navigate to where you want to save the file and name it "HaloCEStart.bat" - Change Save as Type to "All Files" and Encoding to "Ansi" then click "Save"

You can now double click on the batch file to start your Halo CE server
