There is no UDP game server. UDP lobby uses UDP, TCP lobby uses TCP. TCP lobby requires a constant connection, UDP lobby does not, but requires periodic updates.

Ok, so this means, if i want to create a standalone gameserver, i need to create a TCPLobby and a TCP Gameserver, right?

Another Question: How many Channels can a Gameserver handle?

The lobby is optional. Lobby link is required if you want to register with a remote lobby server. So if you have user-created servers that register with some central location, this is done by using a lobby server.

The only limit is your hardware. Can be thousands.
