SB Pro PE Dedicated server


Recommended Posts

Hi , 


I am just curious , does SB Pro PE have a dedicated server exe available?


Like ARMA has a dedicated server exe file which has scripts and config file that need to be edited before server is run on a hardware that does not have GPU. 


Since it does not render the graphics on the server side  ,GPU is not required on it.


Are there plans for such solution ?

Yes there is a server exe.


However the main difference AFAIK is that it has the 8 user cap removed when hosting a session. Apart from that it runs just like the normal version


I am aware of this exe. 


I am asking if there is a server exe that does not render graphics on the host machine ?

thank you all for your response , 

I went out and bought a 

HP NVIDIA GeForce GT 730 GFX 2 GB PCIe x8 Graphics Card  which is compatible with the PCIe x8 slot on my Dell Poweredge R610 server. its also low profile and fits perfectly inside my server.



Now , lets see if i can get it to work.

I'm curious about this as well.  I've tossed around the idea of using an Amazon AWS server instance to host games...

AWS server instance are great. I've used them for testing. I am assuming you will be sharing your SB license via VPN ?


As for my project :

So a GPU or CPU (with integrated graphics) is required. 

running a stand alone non graphical SB server is out of the question.


I attempted to with the above configuration .

My server is running ESXi5.5 hyper-visor with 2 Xeon CPUs and 40 GB RAM. 

I did a PCI card passthrough for the GPU.

on it , i have VM running win 7 with 2 CPU cores and 8 GB ram was setup.

I updated the Guest OS on VM with directx and windows update 

Installed Gforce drivers for the GPU.

installed SB pro PE.

Attempted to run SB Pro PE. BANG !!!!! it blow up with a error msg "No direct 3d device found"


Now today i will go thru the logs and online resources to find an answer !


This is why there should be a stand-alone non graphical dedicated server.(Not complaining ! I know its not a priority and y'all are busy.)


Its not a big deal ! if everything else fails i will install it on my other server which has i5 cpu (which has integrated graphics).

So i was able to achieve a sort of server solution on a different server with i5 CPU. 


As long as CPU has integrated graphics , VM will run SB.


One day perhaps ,We should have dedicated-standalone non graphics rendering server for SB. 

It will make things much simpler, especially in VDI environments of today.
