Host a Dedicated Server using E3DS infrastructure

To use Multiplayer and have multiple characters connected and running around in your game, start by hosting a Dedicated Server App first. Then connect it to your Streaming App later.

This document describes how to Upload and run a Dedicated Server App on the Control Panel and prepare your game for Multiplayer.

Before we proceed we are expecting that you already have Built, Packaged, and tested your Dedicated Server Locally and that your client App was able to connect with that Packed Server.

We are expecting you are Uploading a Server App that is working 100% correctly on your Local environment. Only then that App will work fine with our system.

If you need help with the Packaging of the Dedicated Server you can follow these URLs:


Step 1. Create an Archive of your Dedicated Server App

1. In the Root folder (file with the .exe extension), select all files and folders

If you Upload a Project without Archiving it first then the Upload will fail.

2. Right-click on the selected files . Select "Send to"->” Compressed (zipped) folder”

The Supported Archive Formats are: RAR, ZIP, 7z.
