I am investigating the possibility of the game essentiallly being a server in the same process.
Is this something that could be done? Any pointers?
I would be also interested in knowing this. I tried to look for the answer some time ago, but failed. GameSDK had this possibility, but I have no idea how this was achieved. Crytek doesn't seem to answer in multiplayer related topics, so I guess we have to wait for someone more knowledgeable than we are. Unless you look deeper into gameSDK and find what's needed in there. Unfortunately at the moment i don't have time to help you investigating this issue, so good luck
