Starting the IVMP server

#include <mainNetwork.h>
#include "apiWorld.h"

int main()
{
   //Creates the IVMP network logic
   //Servers masterlist connection port is 8887 UDP. All server ports are UDP.
   if(initRaknet(8888, "Server Name", "Server location", "Server WebSite", false))
   {        
    while(true)
    {
       pulseServer(); //This function executes the internal logic
       Sleep(100); //Makes the server sleep for 0.1s before executing again. Use any delay you like.
    }
   }
   return 1;
}
