.ini files are files that contain initial settings and communications settings used by PC² modules.
.ini file changes in Version 9
The “sitelist.ini” and “reject.ini” files of Version 8 have been eliminated (the values formerly specified via these files are now configurable interactively using the Sites Tab and Judgements Tab respectively). There is now just one single file used to pre-configure the system: “pc2v9.ini”.
As with the old “pc2v8.ini” file, the "pc2v9.ini" file allows a client section and a server section. On client machines (Team, Judge, Admin, and Scoreboard), a minimal configuration includes a line like:
in the [client] section, specifying the IP and port number where the client should contact its server.
