Hi all

new to the game...is there a "how to " to run the dedicated server in direct IP mode, so basically we can run an online campaign that we can all connect to when we like....Im finding the readme a bit tricky , particularly with simple direct ip (ie not using the UBI lobby)

many thanks

Dedicated server is for dogfight only.Works good on a lan.

Hi,

so your saying you can't have the Dedicated server host LAN Co-op play games against the Computer AI?

Campaigns CAN be run from the Dedicated Server. There are some limitations though, e.g. it can only be dogfight based, i.e. no AI and only static ground objects allowed. You just have to use DCG to manage the campaign for you. Get it here: http://www.lowengrin.com

Hi there

thats a REAL omission on their part...I really cant understand why a major part of the game (online campaigns) is not supported at all !
I know it could be done putting the game on a server machine , but that would be very messy , and could not run unattended...

I wish I was smart enough to write one...im sure many people wanna use a ded server for something other than dogfights!

cheers for the info
