    Question Creating a Game Server

    Hi all, I'm new here so please bear with me. There is a gaming club at my college (fairly new) and we are trying to figure out how to make a gaming server. We want to be able to log into a computer and sign in to a game and play (games like CoD, WoW, and other FPSs and MMORPGs). The only problem is we have no clue how to do this or what exactly we need.

    What hardware do we need?
    What should the specs be?
    What software do we need?

    Do we have to download each game on each individual computer?
    Do we have to buy the game for each individual computer?

    How much will this all cost?
    Is there an easy place to get donations or have some company sponsor this project?

    First off...for the most part, MMORPG's cannot be hosted..I mean they are, but there are not "server files" for you to download to actually host it. Take WOW for example..there are private servers that you can use, but they are illegal, and generally do not work.

    Secondly..if someone wants to play the game they need to purchase a copy of the game. A simple google search will let you find the server files for COD/CS/BF1942 etc etc.

    Good lucking getting someone to sponsor you..generally the only time people get a game server sponsored is if your a pro gamer.

    Not even then, you have to be established, well known by the community, and a rather large guild/clan.
