After trying to help numerous folks host online peer to peer games by forwarding ports, configuring VPNs, etc, I have decided to host my own server. I currently have a Sound RTS server, a Road to Rage server, and a Three-D Velocity server. Sound RTS and Road to Rage are working, but TDV is not for some strange reason. The application runs in Mono, but I can't connect to it even though I've allowed the ports through the firewall. Any tips are very much appreciated. You can connect to Road to Rage by typing christopherw.me into the server box and the default port of 6789. Ghorthalon, you should consider adding the server to the server list so it's easier to connect to. The Sound RTS server requires Sound RTS 1.2c11 and can be reached by selecting the Chris option in the server list or typing christopherw.me into the address box. If I get the TDV server working properly, you should be able to connect to it by typing christopherw.me into the connection dialog.
I'd like to expand this as time goes on. I really want to host a central Crazy Party server, but I have to wait until Pragma creates a server application and modifies the game to let people host and join games by connecting to said server. If anyone else is willing to do this, contact me via forum email. I'm sick and tired of this port forwarding and VPN bullshit. It requires a certain level of technical knowledge and is impossible for some to do. It shouldn't be so complicated for people to play these online games and have fun.
I'll try to keep the servers up as long as I can. It doesn't cost too much per month, so I should be fine unless it's abused, spammed, etc. Have fun! Any comments or suggestions are welcome.
