He made a great job.
i have a question about this. with this software can i host a dedicated server even from a machine that doesnt have far cry 2 installed?
or do i have to have the game on the same machine too?
i only ask because i would love to be able to host a dedicated server from my laptop but i dont know how. actually if anyone knows how i can host a dedi from my laptop i would really love to know. obviously i could just install fc2 on that and host but how can i be logged in to my fc2 account on both that and on my computer at the same time?
Its software for runing dedicated server, where you dont need to be logged on your account. But of course you have to instal FC2 (+latest patches and serverlauncher R2) to the computer from where you want host server, when its clear, that you cant run dedicated server and play game from one PC in same time.
So if you have PC for actually play game and laptop which is fast/strong enough provide good game experince, you can run server and play in same time.
Hey Logan, check you e-mail
About your question concerning security, ports and run it under Vista, there is no additional requairment compare to regular dedicated server. So if you got public IP, opened ports etc, everything should works just fine.
