How To Configure Your V Rising Server

In V Rising, there are 2 methods to configure your server. For basic settings you will edit everything from the Game Panel Startup Parameters screen. The other more advance way is to use the ServerGameSettings.json file.

How to create ServerGameSettings.json

By default, this file is not created automatically. You need to use one of the base game files as a template to generate it or use the example file below.

  1. Access the Game Host Bros Panel.
  2. Click on your V Rising server.
  3. Go to System > Console and Stop your server.
  4. Click on Management > File Manager.
  5. Navigate to VRisingServer_Data/StreamingAssets/GameSettingPresets and look for a template that suits your desired settings.
  6. Click the 3 dots on the right-hand side of the file and click Download.
  7. After you’ve made your changes, navigate to /save-data/Settings and drag your modified file in.
  8. Rename it to ServerGameSettings.json and restart your server.
