Default Hosting a game obvious revelation...

GAH! All this time I was completely dependent on Llamaserver and Dom3minions games for private multiplayer matches, and I just now figured out how to host on my own computer with no complexity...

If someone wants to run a multiplayer game themselves (like a private blitz or when stress testing new mods) the person can create a Network game, set it to quick host, alt tab out and open and play Dominions in a separate instance of the game. Here is the important part, if you shut down your server and want to start the game later all you have to do it use the same game name as you used before and it will launch the existing game.

Was this in the manual and I magically missed it? Is this documented anywhere for people who don't have much technical experience with servers?
I mod because I love it.

All hail Fury the (aptly named) Great Hawk.
