Requirements

Setup

  • Download Republic Commando UCC and install it into GameData/System folder
  • Create a shortcut for UCC.exe and add this parameter on target line: Engine.ServerCommandlet
  • It should like below (absolute paths may be different depending on installation location):
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Star Wars Republic Commando\GameData\System\UCC.exe" Engine.ServerCommandlet
  • Forward the server connect port (default 7777) for TCP and UDP in your router/firewall
  • Optionally, forward the gamespy master server port 11138 for TCP and UDP if you want to see your server on the list

Configure System\System.ini

Open up GameData\System\System.ini file with notepad. (Notepad++ recommended)


[URL]
