Could someone please answer a dumb question for me? What is the purpose of the dedicated server patch? Do I need it if I want to host a game? If I patch my game with it will I still be able to play on other people's servers online? Any tricks to installing it, or any previous post(s) you can direct me to that covers installation?

Thanks

Dedicated server patch is for the guys that run dedicated servers, not to patch the game with. The server guys need the patch for the servers to be up to date with the game, players do not. As a local host you only need the patches for the game.

Thanks for the explanation. Wasn't sure exactly what a dedicated server was. Now at least I can assume I'm not one.
