I am thinking about putting 1946 on my dedicated games server, its rented and on a high speed rack in london, i have remote desktop to it.

now i have seen the download for the torrent thats a fully patched dedicated server install, would i be able to host coop missions from that using the remote desktop or any other 3rd party server tool designed for this sort of thing, or am i stuck with dogfight servers only. ?

if not would there be a way to do it if i sent a 1946 DVD to my host to install for me ?

im not sure of my options here as i would like coop games on this remote server?

thanks in advance. gonz.

The dedicated server only runs dogfight missions, no coops. Now I have done, via remote desktop, run a coop game on my server by running the game in a reduced window, and pushing the menu buttons using RealVNC, but it is quite cumbersome, and not really practical, since it is just like hosting yourself, only m-u-u-u-u-c-h slower to get it going.

However, listmember rnzoli has written a controller which will run a game installation coop server automatically, very much like a dedicated server.

His info page is here:

and there is a thread about it here:

Yes, your host would have to have the disc to run a legal copy of the game. The controller needs to access the GUI of the game, so it's important that nothing else be running on the server, and that nobody can fool with it.

i'm sure i can get the secure rom free .dll as the server doesnt have its own dvd drive !

i will email support to ask them about this, or i may even buy the download, yes that makes more sence, i can download the full game onto the dedicated, not need a DVD for it, as i have the DVD im hoping i can log in with my account on the server and grab the download,

thanks a million for the links, that app sounds like the best idea.

will let u know if i can get the download sorted, appriciate the help http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The dedicated server software and the game software are not the same.The dedicated server runs in a dos box with only text video and no audio or inputs.

No, the dedicated server only runs dogfights. Troll2K was clarifying how the dedicated server is different from the ingame server.

If you want to host coops on a server, and have it automated, so nobody has to be there to push the buttons, then rnzoli's controller is the way to go, but it requires a full install of the game, not a dedicated server.

Thought as much, i may install both so i can switch to coop mode late at night when the other servers are empty.
