Ok when you host a server and you select internet under dedicated, then u host it, the game should close and another window sould be there like a when you open the game, dont close that, its ur server, just open the game back up and select ur serverr, that easy man :fistpunch:

You shouldn't play on your own server, your zero ping will give you an unfair advantage. hehe.

In what way? I have read arguments that high pings give an advantage. I'm confused.:uhm:

Agreed! But I think it would be in the teens/single digits if he joined his own dedicated, no? Also, joining your own server uses more CPU as well, just not a good practice. If anything create a listen server. You will still have zero ping on a listen server, but that won't matter unless you are playing all newbies. I have been owned by players with triple my ping.

The lower the ping the better, period. Just think of ping as the time it takes to travel from your PC to the server and back. Also try to limit the players to 8 or 10, your cable connection cannot support a packed game without horrible lag.

You behind a firewall or router?

Here is a help link for setting up a server. http://www.evenbalance.com/publications/sof2-ad/
