I've been hosting SWBF1 online through my PC with the 1.2 update, and my wishes to host through a server have FINALLY been offered to me, now... only it's with the 1.3 update.
I've never used a server before, and Im not very computer-saavy, so I'm really hoping you can help me out with your knowledge and experience...
What are the differences between hosting (through a server) with the 1.2 update, and hosting (through a server) with the 1.3 update?
~(If you wish to post the differences in GAMEPLAY
between the 1.2 and the 1.3 updates, your input is gladly welcomed, but I ask that you post them on this other thread
, as I'd like to keep THIS thread, here, devoted exclusively to server-administration concerns)~
What are the benefits of hosting games through a server as opposed to hosting through my PC, here at home?
I'm serious in my efforts to help facilitate the growing revival of SWBF1, and it's important for me to know how I can connect with the most gamers, for the biggest games, with the least amount of difficulty.
ANY help to further my (our?) goals would be greatly appreciated.
