I’ve got a game server I’m trying to start with a .bat file, and it’s all uploaded but I can’t for the life of me figure out the command to execute the file.

.bat files are Batch files that are made for Windows. Ubuntu does not support them unfortunately as the commands are incompatible. What game server are you trying to run? Look for a .sh file instead, that’s usually the file extension that people use for Linux scripts.
