What is Openhost?

Openhost is provided to us by Wiimm and his crew as an easier way of adding players onto your friend roster. The host does not need to have anyone added in order to join his/her room if s/he has Openhost enabled.

THREE SETTINGS IN OPENHOST:

- Black List:
If the host has this enabled, it will allow anyone to join the room if the host has one opened (except [if any] friend codes they have on their portal list as 'deny').

- White List:
Any friend codes that the host has added and, as long as s/he have it set to 'friend' in the portal, will be able to join the room if the host has one opened.

- Disabled:
Openhost is deactivated and friend code adding is normal. The host and the player will have to register each other through the game in order to join the host's room.

Example (using Black List):
Spoiler:
If the host does not have any friend codes listed in their portal (Profile Lists of xxxx-xxxx-xxxx), EVERYONE is able to join that room. However, if a host wants to ban someone from joining their room, they would add that friend code to the list and set it to 'deny' -- that will not allow the banned player to see the host online.

Example (using White List):
Spoiler:
Ronak, Mewwy, Lachie, Luca, and Dave would be the only ones able to see and join my room. Matt, Hawk, and 6 God would not.
