start panda with no window

Hey Everyone,

Its been awhile since I’ve posted, but just letting you all know that my game development is going quite well. I will post screenshots etc soon.

I have a small question, I looked online to try and find a quick answer to no avail:

I have a client/server setup for my game where the client allows you to view the ship battles using panda. The server runs those battles as well but obviously does not need anyone to view them locally. Currently I seem to need this line in order for the battles to run through properly using panda:

import direct.directbase.DirectStart

Once this import goes though a panda window pops up. Normally this is fine (for client side stuff), but I would prefer no window to pop up on the server side. Is there a config option to say “no window please” ?



This is one of those questions that has been asked a lot of times before. Try searching the forums next time.
The answer is:

window-type none

Thanks pro-soft for the quick reply. I promise I did try searching.
