how do you add sections to the "sections" list?

For the running as a service in windows are we looking for how to run from start up (automatically when system is (turned on)/(restarted)) asdf

From the start menu go to run enter in regedit (save a backup,(i{we}will not be held responcible if you mess up your computer doing this) navigate to KEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run right click add key and add the location of the armagetronad dedicated .exe file --Your mom 18:44, 4 December 2005 (CST)

  • No, a service is a special kind of program that runs in its own user context. There's a service manager for you to start and stop services, and stuff. It's the windows version of a unix daemon. To run Armagetron as a service, you'll need more software, the program can't do it right now. There are programs available that will wrap any program you need and run it as a service, and this is kinda what I'm after for that part. Running as a service is only available in the NT kernels, so Win95/98/Me doesn't support it. --Lucifer

Actually, Win9x does have some basic support for services. There's a simple API call that registers one and a registry folder RunServices; the result is basicly that the server is hidden from Ctrl-Alt-Del, starts prior to login, and remains across logins. Not full-blown NT services, but still more or less services... --Luke-Jr 04:06, 12 December 2005 (CST)

[1] I found this although i havn't tested it just checking if this should be added to the running server as a service in windows --Your mom 19:01, 17 December 2005 (CST)

  • That is exactly the kind of program I was thinking for that section. So you could put a link in there if you'd like. Ideally, I'd like some detailed step-by-step explanation with any needed batch files or whatever included. Up to you how much you want to do, of course. Lucifer
    • Oh yeah, and a .reg file that includes the stuff needed on the registry, so people don't have to hack the registry. So that means someone would have to do it first and make their work available. --Lucifer
