FM Lan party - need tech advice

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

Thx for listening.

Im a going to host a FM Party next month, for 10-12 players. We are going to be together on same network, but i need to have som info about techs.

1: How neccesary is it for the host computer to be strong? And what do you belivie is the minimum specs for the hosts computer?

2: Now I see the missing function to be offline and playing. Will that mean, that every 10-12 player have to down-/upload constant to Steam, or will the game see, that we are on same network?

Thx for reply, and sorry for my bad english.

Happy FM'ing

I'm no expert on this but I have seen some information in other threads suggesting that play over a standalone LAN is not possible. The host server needs to be known to Steam, as do all the clients so all participants will need to be internet-connected.

Every user will need to be connected to the Internet and Steam's servers for network play. As long as you have an internet connection everyone will be able to participate fine.

Thx for reply Neil.

But what are the requirement the internet speed for each player.

And do you know about how strong the host need to be?

For two players a bog simple connection should be more than enough to play without any sort of lag, FM isn't a very network intensive game.

Well the quicker the speed the better it'll run, so I'd pick the strongest machine to host, but anything above minimum spec can run a network game.
