Dev Build Server Setup¶
Open Notepad as Administrator and open C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts . Add these three lines to the bottom of the file and save.
Navigate to your dev build game files and find DeadByDaylight/Config/DefaultEngine.ini . Add these lines to the end. (This step can be skipped if you downloaded the dev build from the Developer Build page, as this modification is already included)
EACCES or EADDRINUSE : Something on your system is using port 80 or port 443, both of which are necessary for the server to function. To find out what, run PowerShell as Administrator and run Get-Process -Id (Get-NetTCPConnection -LocalPort 80).OwningProcess (replacing 80 with 443 if necessary). EACCES can also be caused by not having permission to access the necessary ports on Linux.
Many of the server’s settings can be changed by modifying the HJSON configuration files in the settings folder. These settings include the amount of starting bloodpoints, default player level/devotion, whitelist, and which event is active (if any). Instructions can be found here.
