Dedicated Server Hosting

...How does the dedicated server hook up with the master server?

Btcc22 knows exactly how it does since he wrote it, but from monitoring it with Wireshark, it sends a query-like packet to the master server with information about the server, whether or not it's active, its port, and the players are in the game. It will send more packets every 20 seconds from then on, and whenever it closes. The master server will drop the server if it doesn't receive the packet in time, though I'm not sure how much time it gives the server to send keepalive packets.

Ah, so halodedi.exe must have been updated along with halo.exe itself.

 

Sure was. It even received a few minor fixes. ;)
