These are insctuctions how to make a server and a client project in the new version of iRidium Studio on the basis of a project created in iRidium GUI Editor v 2.x

First create a server project (iRidium Studio v3.x) on the basis of v2.x


1. Create a File of a Server Project


Select "New Server Project" in the Menu.

2. Name a Project.

Give a name to the new project or leave a default one.

3. Input Settings of Connection to the Server.

Input basic information about a project and settings of connection to the server (can be input later).



Fill in the following fields in the Settings section for more convenient work:
  • Server host - server IP address
  • Server port - port for connecting to the server (by default it is 30464)
  • Login (function is under development) - loging for connecting control panels to the server
  • Password (function is under development) - password for connecting control panels to the server
  • System ID (function is under development) - a unique identifier of a server that will be used in push-notifications system and in DDNS server.
These settings of a Server project will be automatically imported to panel projects, assigned to the server project, on the stage of making a panel project. So you will not have to input all settings manually to each panel project.
