Dfterm2 is a remote Dwarf Fortress playing software for multiple users through telnet. It has been replaced by Dfterm3, which has similar functions through an easier-to-use web interface.

On linux[edit]

You need to compile the program directly from source. To do so you need to install the following packages:

  • ICU development libraries
  • Boost development libraries (at least version 1.42)
  • OpenSSL development libraries
  • CMake
  • PCRE development libraries
  • g++ and usual development tools
  • lua ( > 5.1 Doesn't work) (use 5.0)
  • git

First, you need to obtain the source code, using the following commands in git:

$ git clone git://genodeen.net/dfterm2
$ cd dfterm2
$ git submodule init
$ git submodule update

Next, you have to use CMake to configure the building system:

$ cmake .

Thirdly, use this command to start the compiling:

$ make

If compilation failed, visit the DFterm2 page on the Bay12 forums for support.

The final step is to add an administrator account using

$ ./dfterm2_configure --adduser (username) (password) admin 
$ ./dfterm2

To connect to the server from a linux machine, you need to use the following command:

$ telnet 8000
