Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

It depends on the type of game, and how much you optimize it. A multiplayer game can easily handle 64 players, if it is done well. Therefor an 8 player game should be easy to accomplish, even on slow connections, you just need low latency.

I have no server, someone is gonna be host and others join him. 64 players?

64 for servers. But just remember this, older laptops are able to run the original counter strike game with 8 players. A decade later, If you want to run 8 players in your game you have nothing to worry about,
