This script allows a server running Ubuntu 18.04 to create an environment suitable for running Overload as a dedicated server using


  • This is an attended script, many commands will require input.
  • This assumes you have Overload on GOG, if not you will need to find a way to get the file on your machine.
  • Replace roncli with the user you are running as before running. Unless you are roncli...
  • olproxy will be updated from GitHub every time you start the service or reboot the machine.
  • Map packs will need to be installed separately, they will not update automatically. (Yet.)
