It isn't a host program at all.
Fhost like other addons adds new functions to (Tim)Host.exe.
Fhost adds long range combat via
Advanced Fighter Missions.
Advanced Torpedo Missions.
PHost= (P)ortable Host.
PHost is just what it says it is, portable between different platforms.
It is a complete from the ground rewrite of the original (Tim)host.exe.
A different combat engine called PVCR which replaces VCR.EXE from
the original game. Weapons arrays can be up to 20 beams and 20
torps or fighter bays. Planets can have torpedoes.
In PHost due to differences in coding and OOE (Order of Events), the
game plays somewhat differently than the original.
PHost like TimHost works with all major player clients:
DOSPlan, WinPlan, VPA and others.
That's a quick summary.
