Unread post Question in regards to hosting own server.

First off like to thank everyone for answering and helping me however they can with my posts here. Everyone has been a great help.

To my question I want to host a local game, for me and a few RL friends to see if they like it and to test scripts and play around with some things, my aunt sent me scripts for. If i hosted a game on my computer, could people not in my house connect? If so any ideas how they could? Or would i have to pay for the nodes and the games ?

To make it even easier for you, I can host a private game for you.

Send me your requirements, I'll bang it. You get everyone in and I'll close the game to others.

It would be my pleasure!

You can definitely accept remote connections with the free version, but only one connection at a time. This single connection limitation is only enforced for server connections, not for the Command Center shell. You can play the game yourself from the Command Center while someone else is connected to the server. Of course, you can't use scripts and such through the Command Center connection.
