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"

you can do it without steam but you would either need another host or you would need to know both parties ip addresses. basically you need to be able to make a direct connection between the two systems via the internet. this also means that you need to know the original ip without any type of network address translation unless you really know what your doing.

as for what a dedicated server is, its a instance of the game that is running without a player or any rendering and has authority. i would suggest googling to learn about it. theres also a ton of tutorials out there on this type of thing. just think like this for a mmo like wow they use a dedicated server, this server allows many people to connect to it but it has no player of its own. it creates the world and knows whats doing on in it and it makes the decisions as to what needs to be replicated. i may not be good at explaining it so like i said google it up and im sure youll find an explanation by a pro.
