Hey My server Laggs alot...I mean ALot everyplayer except Me have 400-900 and 90-599 its instopable can some one please help me:confused:
From my guide to running a server: How Big Should My Server Be? System Don't make your server too big if you haven't got the system resources. By this I mean plenty of RAM and plenty of CPU power. If you have a P4 2.8 Celeron processor and 512 of RAM, you CAN'T run a 20 man server. The lag will be unbearable. But you could run a 10 man server quite nicely (although you would experience a little lag coz of the Celeron processor). If, on the other hand, you have a dual processor pc with 2 gig of Corsair RAM, you should be able to run a 20 man server quite nicely. The important factor here is RAM and CPU power together - one without the other will give you marginal performance improvment - both together will give you significant improvment. Connection Upload The server will be limited to your upload bandwidth. Forget the download, you should have oodles of it if you’re on broadband. The equation for the amount of players is simple: max upload = clients X "max rate" X 8 the end figure should equal your ISP upload speed. E.G. for my setup that I have used 12 players X 3100 X 8 = 297,600Kb's So you see for my upload speed (300Kb's) I can give each player a max rate of 3100 if I limit to a 12 man server. So basically if you have a 300 Kb upload a 12 man server is absolute maximum. Most people have a quarter of a meg (256kps) upload, so I would say an 8 man server is maximum. But these are the setting you need to have in your server config file for both size servers: // Maximum Clients set sv_maxclients "8” And this if you have 300kps: // Maximum Clients set sv_maxclients "12” Also, to stabilise your server, you need to limit player’s ping, so have these settings as well: set sv_maxPing "150" set sv_minping "0"
Thanks, but still when ever I make my server a 10 man server the lag is stopless. I made it a 5 man server nothing happened I made a 1 man server I connected and well no lag but no one can connect if only one man server.! Please help me I really want to make a server and oh yea How do u make a server that runs all the time for free? can u help me
Can you provide your system specs? Also, what is your connection like? What bandwidth do you have - up and down?
