Net64 - Dedicated Server Hosting

This guide shows how to install a dedicated server. If you just want to play with your friends you might be better of creating a private server since it’s a lot easier.


  • download and install Node 12

    • you can try using a later version of Node, but you will need to install C++ compilers
    • on Windows you can do the following: npm i -g windows-build-tools / or use yarn global add
  • install yarn. It’s a package manager for npm, which is generally faster
  • git clone this repository or download as zip
  • modify settings.json
  "port": "3678", // make sure your port is forwarded
  "enableWebHook": false, // set this to true, if you want your server to be listed
  "gamemode": 1, // the initial gamemode
  "enableGamemodeVote": true, // whether gamemode voting should be enabled
  "passwordRequired": false, // whether password is required to join this server
  "name": "A Net64+ Server", // display name for public server list
  "domain": "", // domain of your server for public server list. keep it empty, if you don't have a domain
  "description": "The **best** Net64+ server ever\n\n:unicorn_face:", // description for public server list
  "apiKey": "" // this is required, if you want your server to be listed
  • (OPTIONAL) if you want your server to be listed, go to SMMDB, login with Google, go to profile and get your API key

    • Do not share your API key, because it gives full access to your account
    • You can only list one server per API key
    • name will be shortened to 40 characters at most
    • description will be shortened to 200 characters at most
    • description supports Markdown and emojis
  • open a terminal in the folder of your server and execute the following commands
$ yarn install
$ yarn start
  • (OPTIONAL) if you want to run your server indefinitely with auto restarts, I suggest to use pm2
$ yarn global add pm2
$ yarn build
$ pm2 start ./dist --name="net64 server"
