Hi, I have a small cyber cafe with about 10-20 computers and I'm wondering if there is any software that could stream games across my LAN. My plan is to buy an Intel Core i7 computer with 12gb DDR3 and GTX295 as the main server and stream the games to these old computers with Pentium 4 CPU's. Does any of you know of a software that can do this? I'll also upgrade my LAN with 1000mb/s switches and adapters so the bandwidth won't be a problem. Any help is appreciated.
I found a software from www.streammygame.com but you have to log in everytime and get online to start a game. It's kinda too many steps for a regular teenage kid to launch a game and play it. I'll see if I can find better ones.
I does seem that www.streammygame.com would essentially do the trick, although as you said the extra steps would make it a bit much, but also I can't tell from the website exactly how it works and specifically whether you can have 2 or more games running at once on the server. I'll have to look into it more.
The virtual PC could work, the only issue is the RDP or VNC they would normally use isn't fully optimised for gaming so it may cause some extra lag, but I think this could be a good avenue to look at.
