I want to build a mission in Battlecraft 1942, but the instructions say to use a dedicated server. What is a dedicated server?:uhm:
it's a server that's dedicated to... something...
*moving to BF1942 forums for more help* :)
So...if I make a level of my own in Battlecraft1942, can I play it and host it at the same time, or is this not possible?
Yes, just go into Battlefield 1942. Click on "Multiplay," "Create Game". From there you can select the map that you want. Customize the settings then select "Start Game" or whatever it says at the bottom right corner.
A dedicated server is a server that runs an online mp game like BF1942 24/7.
What the above poster said and the fact that you cannot join a dedicated server from the computer it is set up on.
Um. Don't get the hardware and software confused! Hardware wise a dedicated servers is the computer used to run a game of BF (or any other program, but only that program) and nothing else. software wise it is the game mode that runs just the bare game in text mode with no graphics engine required so that it can only be joined by a remote computer, but you can indeed run multiple dedicated games of BF (or different games or programs altogether, ie: MOHAA, Teamspeak etc) on the same hardware. I believe the correct description here from the original question is the "software" dedicated server, as opposed to what is normally called a "listen" server (don't ask me why, I don't know) that allows the person hosting the game to play at the same time.
