Advice on multiplayer over the internet?

Post by blackyman7 »

Hello all, I am new to OpenRA. Due to the Rona my friends and I would like to set up a multiplayer from our homes. I suppose I (or one of us) would host. Does anyone have any tips on how to set myself up to host?https://19216811.cam https://xender.vip https://testmyspeed.onl

If you run into trouble be sure to check like https://github.com/OpenRA/OpenRA/wiki/F ... nline-game it should be otherwise pretty straight forward.

Hosting your own server is unnecessary 95% of the time. The community provides many dedicated servers that you can join and use - the first player to join becomes the admin and can select the map and game options.

heres my opinion:

easiest - all join the same public server, goto Multiplayer screen and scroll down. first one to join can moderate (change maps, kick other users etc)

easy - create a game, use the button in the Multiplayer screen
