How to Set Up Your Own Private Server Tutorial in The Front
Hey, you know how we always complain about random players ruining our fun in The Front? Well, what if I told you that you could have your own private playground? Yes, you heard me right! I’m going to walk you through setting up your very own game server, so you can rule your virtual world.
What You’ll Need for Your Server
Before you start dreaming about your custom game world, let’s make sure your computer can actually handle it. So, you’ll need:
- Operating System: Windows 10 or Server 2016 (64-Bit)
- Processor: At least a Quad Core (yes, those dusty dual cores won’t cut it)
- Memory: Minimum 7GB (but it eats up to 11GB when it gets really hungry)
- Storage Space: A teeny tiny 3GB for installation
- The Front Game: You’ll need your own copy of The Front from Steam, obviously!
If your computer checks all these boxes, great! You’re all set to move on to the fun part.

Time to Build Your Game Server
So, are you excited? I bet you are!
- First thing, make a new folder on your computer and name it C:\TheFront.
- Next, download SteamCMD from this link: SteamCMD Zip. Once downloaded, unzip it right into your new C:\TheFront folder.
- Now, create a file called FetchServerFiles.bat. This is your magic wand to summon all the server files from Steam. Open a notepad and type:
Fetch server files from Steam by running the FetchServerFiles.bat
Copy This: @echo off start “” steamcmd.exe +login USER PASS +force_install_dir “C:\TheFrontServer” +app_update 2612550 validate +quit
Save it, and make sure this file feels at home in the C:\TheFront folder.
How to Start The Server
Okay, the stage is set. Now, how do you actually start this thing? Easy-peasy. Create a batch file named StartServer.bat and write a few magic lines of code. Voila! You’re a server wizard.
Simply Copy this: start “” “C:\PATH\TO\YOUR\FILES\ProjectWar\Binaries\Win64\TheFrontServer.exe” ProjectWar ProjectWar_Start ?Listen?MaxPlayers=8 -server -game -QueueThreshold=8 -ServerName=”YOUR SERVER NAME” -ServerAdminAccounts=STEAM64ID;STEAM64ID;STEAM64ID -log log=log.log -locallogtimes -EnableParallelCharacterMovementTickFunction -EnableParallelCharacterTickFunction -UseDynamicPhysicsScene -OutIPAddress=YOUR_PUBLIC_IP -ServerID=ANY_IDEA -port=PORT-BeaconPort=PORT+1 -QueryPort=PORT+2 -Game.PhysicsVehicle=false -ansimalloc -Game.MaxFrameRate=35 -ShutDownServicePort=PORT+3
How to Modify Server
- Open the ServerConfig_.ini file
- Modify Settings
[BaseServerConfig] IsCanMail=1.000000 ServerName=”YOUR SERVER NAME” ServerPassword= ServerAdminAccounts=STEAM64ID;STEAM64ID; ServerTitle=”A simple description of your server” PlayerAddExpRate=1
Tweaking the Gameplay
Want faster leveling or maybe a more challenging experience? You can adjust the experience gain rate to your liking. Once you’ve sprinkled your personal touch on these settings, fire up that StartServer.bat file. It’ll take about 10 minutes to get everything ready, so go grab a snack.
Launching the Game and Finding Servers
Launch The Front and head over to the Servers section. You’ll see a tab called Dedicated Servers. Give that a click.
Picking and Joining Your Server
You’ll see a bunch of servers, but you know which one you’re looking for. Once you spot yours, click and you’re in. Easy as pie, isn’t it?
That’s it for now! Keep an eye out for more tips and tricks on port changes and port forwarding. Happy gaming, my friend!
