If you want a better console experience and you are using Linux the following is of interest:

  1. make sure “screen” command is available, if not, install it for your system
  2. edit the “gameStart.sh” file at the top there variable= declarations, change them for your installation
  3. finally run “gameStart.sh start“, it’ll run the game in it’s own process and you won’t have to leave your ssh window open. You can get a list of running screens with “screen -ls” and you can resume a screen with “screen -r “.
