Default How to setup C&C Generals Zero Hour Server? Any help?

Hi there,

I just bought an original C&C Generals Zero Hour from one of the computer shops in Malaysia.

I normally don't play in cyber cafes but I would like to setup a online server so that I can allow my friends to come in and play (maximum 8 players at a game).

It is just a server. I will use another PC to connect to the server through the Internet to play.

I not sure whether C&C Generals Zero Hour can do that or not?

Anyone configure that before?

I am using a broadband with a dynamic ip.

And i am running Windows XP Professional or maybe Windows 2000 Professional for the server.

Any tips please. Is there any links on this, please?

Thank you.

Regards,
Chua Wen Ching

To setup a dedicated server. Create a game on the computer you wish to act as a dedicated server. Set the player type as Spectator, join the game from the client computers, then play.

On the dedicated server, put all graphics and performance settings on LOW, and turn off all sounds. This will save resources and in return the game will run smoother.

Mismatch Errors and Technical Error's can still occur, but the game definitely runs faster using this method.
