This may be quite possibly the easiest way to host when you’re idle. When I say idle, I mean doing other things while you’re on the computer that you’re hosting your server on, such as browse JCF and make semi-useless articles (like this one :P). I have no idea if this will be of any use to anyone or not, though this might be usefull for hosting a dedicated server. I’ll try to keep this as simple as possible:
Basically, what you to do is make your Jazz2 window always stay on top. There’s a program called WinSize that will allow you to do this. You can download it from here:
WinSize is generally easy to use. It’s not too complicated or anything. Just don’t forget that it must stay open for it to work. Open up WinSize and start your server as usual. To make the window always stay on top, just click the “On Top” button. You don’t have to tag it for it to work. And I would suggest that you press the “Refresh List” button before doing so, or else you might make the wrong thing always stay on top.
Furthermore, you may want to resize the Jazz2 window or even move the window off the screen, just in case it’s in the way (I’m pretty sure the server will still work like that). If the window won’t move, you’ll have to click on the “Options” button, click on “Pushing”, and make sure that Top, Bottom, Left, and Right boxes aren’t checked in the “Push windows from:” area. That should solve the problem. If not, just ask me for some help.
That’s all you really need to host an idle server. Feel free to use WinSize for other programs you have. Test it out, it should work :P
