What?DotaPod Game Server (DPGS) is a free program that allows users to automatically host Warcraft III games without running the Warcraft III executable. Users can join such games from their browser via DotaPod.com.
How?Users run DPGS on their computer, or run it on their web servers for increased reliability. Players can then simply visit the DotaPod website to find and join the hosted games with any modern browser.
MoreFaster, smoother games. With pre-configured settings, your DPGS hosted games are 2X more rewarding than your normal LAN hosted games, 5X smoother than BattleNet.
Simple and available to many players. Your hosted games are made available to thousands of players world-wide to join via DotaPod.com. No downloads required! Players in your LAN network can also join your games.
Simultaneous games can be created. You are no longer limited to hosting 1 running game at a time with the Warcraft III executable.
Commands are available to players: !votekick !checkme !end etc Players get to check their own statistics or vote to kick another player and more.
DPGS vs. GHost++Users can join DPGS games from the browser via the DotaPod website. While users can only join GHost++ games from Battle.Net, PVPGN etc. Certain features (i.e. bnet hosting) have been removed to simplify the use of DPGS for DotaPod.com and its users.
This project is based on GHost++.
