Re: Heroes and Generals

No way. Not only like they say above, it doesn't support linux... It stuggles to run on a GTX 745 or higher, as the game isn't very well optimized. So if you expect the pi's minimal specs to run a game of such caliber, you'd be joking yourself. You need a good desktop PC to play this game, no doubt....

Re: i need help finding the Resolution of old tv

If you are using composite, then the resolution is limited. As you are in the USofA, I assume you will be using NTSC which will give you a resolution of 720x480. You can check using the tvservice -s command in a terminal window. pi@raspi3 ~ $ tvservice -s state 0x40001 [NTSC 4:3], 720x480 @ 60.00Hz...

It's not possible. The Minecraft pocket edition only runs on a local machine. Well im asking this because I know that MCPI is a port of MCPE, and MCPE allows connecting to a server, am I right?

Would it be possible to connect to a MINECRAFT PI edition server running on a raspberry on the other side of the globe? This means I wouldn't be able to be in the same room, yet I want to be able to play with them while on another network? Maybe by creating a program to run in MCPI or by downloading...
