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"

Hello all I am currently working on a multiplayer game using a the client server model. Now I am not going to be using a dedicated server as I don't have the cash for that. So does this mean when someone host the game they are acting as the server as well ? And also how many clients maximum should I have connected to them ?

Thanks for the help

to my knowlege yes the host is the server. if you think about it what other solution would there be since theres no dedicated server to host the game. as for the how many clients well thats a bit more complex of an issue. it really comes down to how much information needs to be exchanged between the host and clients, and whats the bandwidth of the host. for example if little information needs to be exchanged and the host has a good cable connection then you could have many clients. basically if you have too much information or poor hardware then you will need to limit clients.
