Hosting a Race using WinVROC
Hosting a race on VROC is simple. You have two ways you can
use VROC to host races: using the Windows client for VROC, known
as WinVROC, or the GPL 1.2 Race Room (also known as JavaVROC).
If you'd prefer to use the JavaVROC Race Room, go here.
If you would like to download and install the Windows client
for VROC, click on WinVROC. Follow
the instructions there for downloading and installing WinVROC.
Once you have downloaded and installed WinVROC, simply run
WinVROC and select Host from the VROC menu or click the Host
button above the race list. You will be presented with a popup
of options for your race.
This popup has several sheets where you can specify a password,
restrict classes and/or cars, etc. Make sure you specify the
appropriate information about your server on the Server tab.
See the WinVROC Options page
for more information on the various options.
Note: if you are behind a gateway, see section 7.3 of Eagle
Woman's GPL Online FAQ. If no one joins your races,
see VROC Troubleshooting.
See the Advanced Servers
page for information about the advanced hosting capabilities
of GPL and VROC.
