Question

Battle Field 4, in effect leasing a pretty awesome gaming system

Is it feasible to install Battlefield 4 to a droplet… in effect leasing a pretty awesome gaming system for the the few hours I have time to play… and any advice or tutorials on how to go about it? To come full circle it was Rogue Spear’s squadron based games that got me to first look into setting up a server 20 years ago for a LAN. Of course it may not make a difference anyways… my biggest issue playing locally tends to be video cards and I’m guessing it would still forward the graphics load to my local terminal… if that’s an optional setting somewhere, do droplets have graphics cards? maybe the swap file could be the graphics card… just a thought, I guess I’m being silly now.

in short: NO

You can’t play a game like that one on remote systems, what you need is to save some money and buy a good PC or GPU.

Droplets don’t use graphics cards, and battlefield 4/3/H rely on GPU’s. I’m still not even sure why’d want to play games through a droplet anyway. It’s better playing it off your local desktop.
