armagetronad-dedicated: dedicated game server for Armagetron Advanced

 Armagetron Advanced is a 3D game based on the light cycle racing in the movie
 "Tron". You have to control a light cycle that can only turn in steps of 90
 degrees, leaves a solid wall behind and can not be stopped. The aim is to
 survive the longest of all players by not crashing into any walls.
 This version of Armagetron Advanced can only be used as a network game server.
 It does not have graphical output and can be controlled via the text console.
 The normal Armagetron Advanced used for playing is also capable to serve
 games, but will require X to display its graphics, will provide a player and
 is therefore unsuited for permanent game servers.
