Game Switching

One of the unique features a Nitrado gameserver offers is the ability to have multiple games on your server. You can have up to 5 games on your server at any given time.

  • Only one game can be active at a time.
  • Changing a game will not cause data loss.
  • If you uninstall a game, the game and all of its data will be removed.

Where to start?

How to change the game of your server?:

  • Navigate to the Web interface of your server: How to Access your webinterface
  • Stop your server
  • On the left-hand side menu, use the "Switch Game" option.
  • On this page is where we add, remove, and change games on your server. It is important to know what you are doing on this page, and what each button does.
    • Reinstall: Pressing the reinstall button will do exactly that. It will perform a reinstallation of the game on your server, essentially a "Clean Wipe". This will cause all saved progress to be lost. Only press this button if a local backup of your save is made, or you don’t mind losing progress.
    • Uninstall: Uninstalling a game will remove the game and all of the files from the server. This information is vital to remember when using these options.
    • Install: When pressing "Install" the server will install the selected game to your server from our online cloud. Upon installation, the game will now switch to your active game.
    • Change: You can switch games by pressing the "Change" button
