Outlaws of the Old West – Dedicated Server Configuration

Outlaws of the Old West is a massively multiplayer survival MMO with a huge world, thousands of items and a modular building system. Survive the wild, build your own homestead, defeat villainous bandits and work with others to tame the Wild West.

Dedicated Server Configuration

In order to run a dedicated server you will need to download SteamCMD from here: https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/client/installer/steamcmd.zip

Paste this into a .txt file (name it OutlawsUpdate for easy reference) and save it wherever you have the steamcmd.exe saved:

// Update Outlaws //
@ShutdownOnFailedCommand 1 //set to 0 if updating multiple servers at once
@NoPromptForPassword 1
login anonymous
//for servers which don’t need a login
//login anonymous
force_install_dir C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Outlaws of the Old West\WindowsServer\
app_update 915070 validate

Make a shortcut to steamcmd

Under properties for it, add this line to the target:

+runscript OutlawsUpdate.txt
Under compatibility tick the box for run as admin

Then double click your shortcut

Next, open your Outlaws installation location, usually found here: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Outlaws of the Old West\WindowsServer

Open a new text document, then copy this:

Start “”/NORMAL “C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Outlaws of the Old West\WindowsServer\OutlawsServer.exe” /Game/Maps/MainMap/MainMap -log -port=27374 -queryport=27015 -servername=”OutlawsServer” -PlayerCount=150 -Type=PVP -ServerPassword=”test” -AdminPassword=”testtest”

Save the file in your WindowsServer folder as StartOutlaws.bat, then you are ready to launch your server.


Port: Is the game port, must be unique to each instance on the same machine and public facing

QueryPort: this is the steam query port and must also be unique to each instance on the same machine and public

ServerName: Is the public server name

PlayerCount: This is the server max concurrent player count

Type: The game types: PVP, PVE, RP

ServerPassword: This is the password for password protected servers. Leaving this blank will leave the server open to join with no password.

There are two.txt files that are generated in the saved folder, AdminList.txt and BanList.txt.

The admin list is the next line separated steamids for GMs. The Ban List is also next line seperated SteamIDs that will deny connections.
