Installing Assetto Corsa dedicated server in Linux

Mon 30 March 2015 // posts

On this post, I'll cover the steps required to install Assetto Corsa dedicated server on Linux, without relying on Windows Steam client nor the steam GUI client.

mkdir steam  
cd steam  
wget //media.steampowered.com/client/steamcmd_linux.tar.gz  
tar -xvf steamcmd_linux.tar.gz  
rm steamcmd_linux.tar.gz  
./steamcmd.sh +@sSteamCmdForcePlatformType windows  

Once in steam shell, execute:

Steam> login <username>;  
Steam> force_install_dir ./assetto  
Steam> app_update 302550  
Steam> exit

Replace username.

Configuration files can be found inside ./assetto/cfg/.
To start the server, run:

./acServer_linux  

Don't forget to open the server ports in your firewall.
That's it folks!
