Names Tim, this is my first time ever dealing with a VPS. Basically I don't have a computer to access at the moment but I love playing Runescape (Oldschool version). From what I understand through the use of a vps I can play. I have tried alwaysonpc but it is horribly laggy, Splashtop requires remote access to a PC, it runs great but my mom is always on her PC so it's not an option. I want to know of a vps I can rent that is cheap and that will let me play Oldschool Runescape with no/minimal lag. It will only be me using it and maybe 1 or 2 more friends for the same use but mostly me. I use a Samsung Galaxy S3 if that helps.
I really appreciate the help in advance and sorry for being a noob.
From what I understand - you will be accessing your Windows VPS from your Galaxy S3 phone via RDP and play the game since you don't have access to PC? This should technically work but you'll still be limited to screen size of your phone.. Are you OK with it?
Yes, I'm perfectly fine with the screen size. While it isn't ideal I've used it before and it's fine for general play. I can do skills and stuff just fine. Just need to find a vps to rent or connect to that isn't horribly laggy like AlwaysOnPC is.
Understood. I will suggest you to look out for virtual machines with Windows 2008 r2 (you don't need 2012 as it takes more resources). To avoid more lag due to network issue, I will recommend you to get it in datacenter that is close to you. Where are you located currently?
