is it right to think that if the computer is off or the control panel is not active, nothing works?

is it possible to make the various plug-ins work even with the computer turned off?

if yes, how?

 

Thank you

Yes, that is correct.

No. SOME computer MUST be turned on.

if yes, how?

Many people rent a "layer server" to keep their Procon plugins operating. A "layer server" is simply a different computer, somewhere else, which is always running; so that you can turn your computer off.

The mobile app doesn't compile and run the plugins. You need the procon client application or a procon layer server running in order for the plugins to operate.

  • Our picks

    • Hi All,

      So I've been thinking about doing something like this for a while but I always talked myself out of it. I want to get some feedback on this idea and how many would think about using it if it was offered.

      In the past I know how hard it was for some users to get a MySQL database going and running the BFACP (since it's a bit requirement heavy in some cases). What I would be doing is offering to manage both of these for you.

      If enough interest was shown in something like this I would definitely think about doing it. Of course, I also know the risks I would be taking in something like this, but to list what I would be offering I guess is this.

      MySQL Hosting


      Daily backups of the database to a remote site & option to download it yourself.


      No limit on how big your database can be (within reason).




      BFACP Hosting (If running AdKats on your layers)


      This would run the newest version (v3.0)


      Will still be available to run on your own hardware


      Will have extra features that are not available for an open source setup (still need to think of good things )


      Able to use your own domain name with the proper DNS setup.




      Both Above



      Please let me know what you think of this idea and vote in the poll. Again not confirming anything like this will happen but if I get enough interest from the community for something like this then please let me know.

      Disclaimer: This will NOT be something affiliated with MyRCON but will be ran through it in terms of a payment processor.
