Important Note: This product does NOT come with support for Amazon Services. If you need assistance regarding AWS you will need to consult the official AWS Documentation.



What is the difference between the Server plugin and the Client plugin?

  • The Server plugin is what the AWS Service uses to "control" your dedicated server, it will tell the server when to shut down or start up, this plugin is only used on dedicated servers that are hosted on Amazon servers,
  • The Client plugin is what clients use to communicate with AWS services, request game sessions or other AWS gamelift features



Do I need both Server and Client plugin?

  • If you're going to use AWS Gamelift servers you will need both, they are divided into 2 separate plugins because you might already have a server plugin or a client plugin.
