Hey guys I have noticed a lot of people want to make their own servs over the time of PS's running(when it started-now), and as people slowly started to join PS, more people found out how make their servs.... the orthodox way. I have made a SHORTCUT to this original method and used it, this was originally sent to me by dusk209 a long time ago, however my port forwarding is messed up becuase of stupid xfinity so I never accomplished the making of a serv. However now taking a gander upon my files I see this, and want to share this method with you guys! (NOTE: I might need someone to send me a updated .rar to eliminate a certain step ) SO HERE WE GO!

Alright lets do this.
First: You need to download this rar file off of my dropbox: https://www.dropbox.com/s/iefn0yb8dkij963/PS.rar( download winrar here)
Second: After this extract the files into a folder on your computer
Third: Next, open up start server and then once it says "done visit your server at localhost.psim.us" OR WHATEVER go do exactly that, if that fails, please PM me or post a comment here.
Fourth: PORT-FORWARDING yes, you need to do the annoying thing called port forwarding, to do this basically go to http://portforward.com/english/routers/ ... rindex.htm and pick out your router, and then pick any game and follow the guide, it's all the same really. after that your server should be up! BUT WAIT-
Fifth: UPDATE YOUR SERVER! Yes this is an outdated version of PS, since I do not have the access to an updated .rar/folder of PS on my computer you will have to do this and last but not least, Have fu-*CHALLENGER APPROACHES* WHAT?
Six (Optional) : Making a github. this is simple really just download git and fork zarels Git, and all that extra jazz , whats cool about this is that you can update you PS with this! :D!

Anyway I hope you enjoyed this, Have fun with your servers. Please notify me of any problems

I know you're trying to help with this, but it's not an ideal way to help people.

People should download the server only from the official repository: https://github.com/Zarel/Pokemon-Showdown

If you download some random .rar file, there are a few downsides:

1. The .rar may be an old version of the server. This means you'll have old bugs and you won't have new features and fixes.

2. The .rar may contain custom code that breaks the server or introduces new bugs. Or it may contain malware or may not be the server at all.

In any case, we won't be able to support you if you install using some random .rar. Instead, use the official repository.
