    I am currently running a 64-bit operation system on Windows 7, and I was wondering how do you make a PS server? I got the source files, but all the instructions are in Apple. Please help asap! :D

    Well, I don't have a very good idea of what to do, then. Try opening app.js with Node?

    Hey zarel, I was looking at the link and it looked like it was made for Linux, would I be right in making that assumption? That those instructions work well for Linux distros also?

    As I said: the instructions are for POSIX.

    POSIX is a family of operating systems that includes Linux, Mac OS X, BSD, Unix, etc...

    However when i do npm install in terminal it gives me several errors.

    Edit: I fixed some of the errors however where would I find and set up SockJS?

    SockJS should be automatically installed when you run npm install.

    The error message you PMed me makes me believe there's something wrong with npm's servers; it should work if you try again tomorrow.

    Where are you typing that in? o_O

    You should be typing it into a commandline with Pokemon Showdown's directory as its working directory.

    Also, npm install goes first. :P
