Dustkid Setup

If you’re using current builds of Dustmod, then no setup is required at all.  If you’d prefer to continue using base builds of Dustforce you can follow the directions below.

Setting up Dustkid is done by changing the Dustforce client’s backend server from df.hitboxteam.com to proxy.dustkid.com. The easiest way to do this is by modifying your systems “hosts” file to change to make df.hitboxteam.com resolve to 54.69.194.244 (proxy.dustkid.com). Below are instructions on how to do this on common operating systems.

Windows 7/8 (and maybe others?)

From the start menu search for “Notepad” and run the application as an administrator. On most systems your hosts file will be located at “C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts”. You may need to switch the file type in the open dialog from “Text Files (*.txt)” to “All Files (*.*)”. Some have even reported that the files are set as hidden.

Once opened, add the below line to the bottom of the file and save.

54.69.194.244 df.hitboxteam.com

If you ever wish to stop using dustkid.com simply delete the line or add a ‘#’ character to the beginning of the line.

Mac/Linux

Open the file /etc/hosts as root and add the below line to the end.

54.69.194.244 df.hitboxteam.com

If you ever wish to stop using dustkid.com simply delete the line or add a ‘#’ character to the beginning of the line.
