To create a private server in Soulmask, follow these steps:

  2. Download SteamCMD on your PC.
  3. Search your system for the downloaded file and open it to run the command prompt on your device.
  4. In the command prompt, use the following line to install SteamCMD: cd C:\steamcmd
  5. Use the following command to download the dedicated server: steamcmd +login anonymous +app_update 3017310 validate +quit
  6. After the commands are inserted, wait for a while as it may take some to initiate. Once installed successfully, a success prompt will appear on the screen.
  7. When the server is live, start it by running the StartServer.bat program. You can find it here: C:\steamcmd\steamapps\common\Soulmask Dedicated Server For Windows\StartServer.bat
  8. After you have run the program successfully, run the command prompt again and enter: telnet 127.0.0.1 18888.
