Setup VRising Dedicated Server


Add non-free and contrib to /etc/apt/sources.list after main

so this line:

deb http://deb.debian.org/debian bullseye main

looks like this one

deb http://deb.debian.org/debian bullseye main non-free contrib

Add winehq repo for Debian

sudo echo "deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/debian/ bullseye main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/winehq.list

Download apt key

wget -nc https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/winehq.key

Add key

sudo apt-key add winehq.key

Add 32-bit architecture support

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386

Update apt and install packages

sudo apt update

sudo apt install winehq-stable winetricks steamcmd:i386

create user steam sith home directory. -s /bin/bash is optional if you prefer bash over sh shell

useradd steam -m -s /bin/bash

Make WINE headless

For this server to run, we need to make wine headless

source: https://serverdiary.com/linux/how-to-install-xvfb-and-create-systemd-xvfb-service-on-centos-7-8-or-rhel-7-8/

Install Xvfb a fake X11 server

sudo apt install xvfb

Create a systemd script to run it with in /etc/systemd/system/xvfb.service:

Description=Xvfb headless fake X server           
ExecStart=/usr/bin/Xvfb :0 -screen 0 1024x768x16  

To enable and start the script:

sudo systemctl enable xvfb.service
sudo systemctl start xvfb.service

Install the allfonts winepackage as user steam with winetricks

login as user steam

su - steam
winetricks allfonts

Install VRising dedicated server

Run steamcmd as user steam to install the server software


you will now get a Steam> prompt In the Steam> prompt login as anonymous

login anonymous

First, tell SteamCMD to use windows as the platform, as there's currently a Windows version of VRising Server currently:

@sSteamCmdForcePlatformType windows

Optional: If you want to install the server to a specific directory in the /home/steam folder:

force_install_dir ./<name of folder>

Proceed with the installation app_update and steamID

app_update 1829350

When the server software is finished with the installation, exit steamcmd with pressing ctrl + c

To logout from steam user, press ctrl + d

Run the server with systemd

Make a systemd script to run the server with.

Add this snippet to /etc/systemd/system/vrising.service

Description=VRising server service                                                                                       
ExecStart=wine VRisingServer.exe -persistentDataPath .\save-data -serverName "Malinux V Rising Server" -saveName "MyWorld
-1" -logFile ".\logs\VRisingServer.log"                                                                                  

Set the WorkingDirectory to where your VRisingServer.exe is located if you put it in a custom location
