I am trying to create an internet game so that me and my friend can have some Lightsaber duels. However we are both stuck on how to create a server. I have tried to create one however my friend could not see it on the server list. I looked on the about tab ingame to see that the address said localhost. Does this mean i made a game for LAN only? If so does anyone know how to create an internet game? Any feedback would be much appreciated, thanks

If you're going to play against your friend only, make it a non-dedicated server.

Then tell your friend your IP address.

Try www.whatismyip.com

That's the quickest and easiest way to find out your external IP.

Also, for server help, try this forum:

I recommend getting the dedicated server binary of your choice from LucasFiles.com and running THAT instead of the in game version.

Also get ASE (All Seeing Eye) so you can see all the servers (bug in the master server makes it so you only see about 30 or so servers, when there are really closer to 500.

On the topic of creating new games, how do get the AI chars/bots to have either dual or staff sabres? Obviously we're talking a Power Duel with the great Maul skin developed by Chesire for JO.
