Questions concerning what you can do with Esenthel on the Server.
Got a few questions concerning the limits of Esenthel on a Dedicated Server with no Graphics Card.

1) First would you be able to load a World that you had created in the Editor on a Server and use it for Server side Physics/Collision Detection, Path Finding, AI, ect.? Or would you need to have a graphics card on the Server in order to be able to do that?

2) If you could Load a World on the Server would you then be able to send the Client the Data for the World so that the Server controls what the Players see so the world couldn't be hacked?

Thanks.

Hi,

Last time I've checked, both 1 2 works on Windows Dedicated Server if it can have DirectX Runtime installed.
Then you can select APP_ALLOW_NO_GPU flag during app startup.
I haven't tested that on Linux/Mac (OpenGL) though.
