       The  Armagetron Advanced dedicated server runs from an initscript -- to
       enable running it on boot, edit /etc/default/armagetronad-dedicated.

       The    server    program    will    read    default    settings    from
       /etc/armagetronad/settings_dedicated.cfg.   Modifications   and  custom
       server    settings    should    be    implemented    in    the     file

       To  edit  configuration  on-the-fly  or  make  time-sensitive temporary
       changes, it’s best to log onto the server from the armagetronad  client
       and  log  on  as an administrator (using the password set in the server
       configuration). Console input is not available when running the  server
       as a daemon.

       Before  each round is started, the file /etc/armagetronad/everytime.cfg
       is read; it may be useful to use this for things like randomly changing
       maps or other quickly changing settings.
