The pc2v9.ini file contains settings as well as information to contact a server.


All blank lines and lines starting with # are ignored.

A section (set of name value pairs) is a name surrounded by square brackets.

Name value pairs are a name, equals sign, and then value. Names are case insensitive by PC² whereas values are case sensitive.

Default host and port

If the pc2v9.ini is not in the current directory, then the server to contact will be localhost:50002. Effectively the ini client section is:


Sample Client pc2v9.ini file

This example can be used by all client modules ( Administrator module, Team module, Judge module, Scoreboard module) The server to contact is at port 50200.

# Client pc2v9.ini

For a Primary server (a Server module which is the server to be contacted) no pc2v9.ini file is needed if default host and port values are used.
