What game servers can I make with a raspberry pi 5b?

Thu Oct 26, 2023 3:55 pm

Hey, I just saw that the raspberry pi 5b 8 gb ram came out and was wondering what game servers I can run on it. I was mostly curious if it can run an ark server but I'm not sure. And if one can't run it, can two run it?

Is this it?
https://ark-servers.net/

They state:
We only support PC server
Do they even support the Raspberry Pi armhf or arm64 architecture?

The answer here is no...

minecraft server, any game that playit.gg supports, and yeah that's basically it if you're talking the most popular kinds of games

and afaik i don't think you can even RUN a server with more than 1 raspberry pi
I scour these forums by day and night. Who am I? Adamanewtown, of course. ;)

I got an Aframe VR server running on a Pi1B+
https://aframe.io/

Ubuntu servers have been running on Pi's for years.

This does Godot serving as well

Godot 4+ is just about usable on Pi400 as editor/client, should be fine for Pi5.
Hmm, this is interesting

A trick, I didn't use Linux.

The Pi Linux OS + Python HTTP server worked as well.

What was a surprise was my Pi400 with Bullseye and Chromium was faster rendering the Aframe pages than a Dell Desktop with AMD graphics card :lol:
