Talking Re: Host Test

Ok Here's a Feature That I think SFO needs Alot Now Just Vote Yes or no And Your Opinion About it.

Host Test Will be a Button In either the SFO help Section Or network Tab in the Options Menu and what It Does Is This
Once you Port forward And set your Local IP Press the Host Test And It will run a Check and See if you Are Able to Host I'm Not sure how it can be done so I'll Give you a Few Examples

example 1: Once you Press Test Host A message will pop up and say "You are now able to host" If not then a Message will pop up and Say "You Are not Able to Host Please Check if your ports are forwarded to TCP-1626,UDP 1626-1627. Also Check and see if you put the right Local IP"

example 2: Once you press the test Host Button A screen will Pop up as if you actually Hosted in Game and SFO will make an Artificial Person Join your Host If ports were configed correctly the the Artifical Person Wil be Able to Join If not Then you are sent back to the main menu with a Message saying "You are not able to Host".

I think This would be a good Feature so that People will know if there Able to Host Instead of Going in Game and hosting. If you are Able to host and you go in the Chat Server and host But no one Enters then A person might think they Cannot Host Same as if a person Can't host and they go in the Chat Server and host a game and everybody Joins But they Haven't Configed there ports And they Still Might think They Can Host And just No one Joined.

Me personally I would love this Feature Because I can Either Port forward My own ports or a Fellow Community Member of SFO and instead of us keep Hosting and testing We can Just Press test Host and Find out with in Seconds. So Tell me What You all Think About it.

Default Re: Host Test

Hey (M-X)RecKoninG,

I think that this is a great idea. It doesn't seem like anything too complex to add into the game, but what do I know, I'm not the programmer. It is quite effective as it's better than going into a server and attempting to host, especially when no one is in a server or when no one actually joins; but you don't know if someone is joining or not, as you can't host.

This idea isn't pointless in my opinion, it serves a purpose but, would this require a dedicated server to be based on? None the less, not a bad idea and good luck with it.

Thanks (-ObNoXiOuS-1-) I think You Are the Only One who Gets What I am Saying.
So I am Going to break it down Some more ok you ready?
The Test Host Button Will See If you Can Host On SFO without Actually Going in the Server and Hosting.

I know About online Port Checkers But that Wont Help you Host on SFO if your ports are opened but you Do not have the Right Local IP
So the Test Host Button Will Check and see if
1.)Your Ports are Open
2.)You Have Correct Local IP in Place
3.)Will Players Be Able to Join Your Game Once All of the Above is Done

So Now Your Opinion Please?

Default Re: Host Test

it requires too much work for something that will rarely be used.

If you can host, you don't have to worry about this at all. It just seems like a waste of effort.

there are various ways to see if you can host. One great example was stated by Lokito.

Not a bad idea, but not a needed feature..

To see if your host works or not, simply host a game.. if you see a (0) next to your name, you cannot host. Leave and try again.

It's easy to host if you dont have wireless... you only need to know your router's ip, your ip, and have a clue how to not flapup your internet.

Actually before i fixed my port forwarding to be able to host, i had the quick game button there....and i wasn't able to host.

I believe the button idea to check if youcan or can not host is a good idea.

Default Re: Host Test

I'm with blockattack on this one. If you host and see a number other than 0, then you can host. There are several other ways you can check if you're able to host, and one of them that I used in the past was the port checker.

Not needed.

Default Re: Host Test

I don't know if this works all the time...but if you're UAC is elevated about the 'never' level, When in initially host and it prompts you to allow access for the SFO program (did not really read it), then this is another indicator you can host.

When you host, if you press "Kick Player," if you see nothing show up, that means your host doesn't work.

If it does show "Was kicked from game" people can join.
