Default Llamaserver hosting schedule

I'm planning to host a game with Llamaserver and wonder would it be possible to set up fixed hosting schedule?

The plan is to host game 5 days a week at 12pm every day excluding weekends.

Any suggestions?

You'll have to manually postpone for weekends. Other than that it's easy (24 hour hosting, turn off quickhost).

The game does support such timings
-t --hosttime X Y Host on day X (0=sunday) hour Y (0-23)
--minutes X Set host interval in minutes
-h --hours X Set host interval in hours
--pauseday X Stop timer on this day (0=sunday)

But due to the way PbEM games run it might not be available. They dont run continually and dont use the games timer settings. You might have to use one of the other servers

Thanks for your replies!

I've hosted couple of games with a private server using continous hosting as Gandald suggested. This is however sometimes a bit tricky.. Do you know if its possible to manually change the hosting interval during the game just by editing the game file?

I think we'll go this time with Llamaserver and manually postpone the hosting just to be on a safe side.
