Peer To Peer
I tried searching the discussions but seemingly nothing has been said offically as to wether or not this is, or ever will be, worked on.

Will there ever be peer to peer options? It's a bit of a hastle to port forward or use work arounds like hamatchi. Just wanted to know if my friends and I could ever just quickly jump in when we feel like it.

Pears only grow on trees.

As far as I know Half-Life 2 has just the dedicated or listen server option. Dedicated being a server you can browse, listen create a playable server where other's can connect to by ginving your IP adress.

As Synergy is a Half-Life 2 mod, above are the options

I never typed "pear"

I know what the options are right now, but I'm asking if peer to peer is going to be added in the future.

Gmod got it's peer to peer in 2016 iirc so I'm pretty sure it would be possible. They're sort of similar games (aside from obvious things like how the gameplay works. But the games are kind of like husks for source games to mount on, with a few built in gameplay things like maps and stuff).
I know you didn't typed 'Pear:, it was just a joke :approved:

I dont;s think a "peer to peer" option is going to be addded. It's becasue of it's a Hals-Life 2 Mod. Provided that it uses the Half-Life engine with custom maps, models and textures.

So for getting a "peer to peer" function, Valve has to integrate it into the original Half-Life game to have an option like this.

That's not how this works. It's not built on half Life. It's a game with Half Life mounted if you have it installed.


Half Life didn't have multiplayer capabilities to begin with. The closest thing was Half Life deathmatch but it's a separate game entirely.

No, the game doesn't have P2P servers like Gmod. I reccomend using a private VPN service like hamachi.
Just Port Forward, or use ♥♥♥♥♥♥ VPN software like Hamachi.
