I know there are some around but not many and the one's that are are full 90% of the time, I was kinda kicking around the idea of starting one but being that it can cost up to $120 a month was wondering if some people would like to start one up and we could split the cost,running a server is easy to learn and I have done it before.

You would be wasting your time. I've been trying to get our server populated for 4 months, advertising here, helping and contributing in these forums, sitting in the server every night for hours at a time, waiting, did get a few here and there but nothing consistent. Did everything this community asked for in these forums, but got little to nothing in return. Offered a 3.2 Ghz, 1 gig mem, 100 mbit connection, FH lag free, admin'd everynight, any choice of maps plus a free teamspeak channel. Just a "How about.. no?" from The 13th Raptor when somebody else here posted praising our server. That was the end for me. To make it worse, I've even advertised my clan server in other forums only to have a Wolf server admin come on and ridicule it, a faux pas in any other gaming community. Just ignorance as a result of immaturity I suppose, that's alll. I found out the hard way that they just talk the talk, nothing more. It's to bad because it's a great mod, still the best I've played, but the rest of us pretty much get pushed out and ignored, by a very intolerant North American community. So we move on. Cya
I would have though a NA sever with a good ping would bring people in, I look around before I jump in Wolf, I had talked about server side modding but since the Dev's told me they would not like them to be up for public download I decided not to,but if I was runnig a server I would as being I can controll the part of players knowing it was modded, I would think you could get people in esp since you can basicly since you can almost make a whole new map server side. Thanks for the heads up on it saved me alot of time modding and money,is your server still up I can jump in here and there maybe it would help get some people in there. CrimeScene
Sorry we took it down and I learned last night my fellow admins unstalled and deleted the entire FH mod, and just about everybody in our clan, affiliate clans and an affiliate Broadband forum community that got it have also uninstalled it. If only all those players had got mod the same time (instead of spread over 4 months), we could've had a full server everynight. But people installed the mod at various times, tried it on one of the big three servers, and either didn't like the big maps they tend to rotate, or their machines just couldn't handle 48+ players. Some tried it on our server, but you can only have so much fun with 3-8 players. My son and I will be uninstalling ours as well, since my AMD 2500+ can't handle the 54-64 player servers either. Heck even my son gets framelag on his Athlon64 3200 when on a 50 player server. Oh well, such is life and we have moved on to other mods.
Hmmm I run a P4 overclocked to 4.0 6800GT 256, I have Version DSL and never have any probloms in wolf, I know my P4 at 3.6 has no problom,odd you 2 would have any CPU probloms with it. Anyway good luck and thx for the heads up. Crimescene
Well u do have two considerably more powerful computers. Both of ours are 2.0Ghz to your 4.0 and 3.6. Also your 6800Gt 256 would smoke my 9800pro and my son's 6600Gt 128. So no surprise. The game runs fairly smooth on my son's computer but he still gets some chop when running on a 54 player server depending ofcourse where he is, on which map and how many people around him. I can play but it's not very enjoyable:uhm: You must be getting BF2, with systems like that. You play any other mods in the BF series?
I just posted on Wolf about any other mods out there worth the download,I figured this forum would be in bad taste to ask.I like FH ok but I am not a huge fan of it seems lacking in some ways,most of the players though I get along with seem to be a step up from DC players for the most part. Yes I am going to get BF2 as far as my computer I did not have BF2 in mind just gamming in general. CrimeScene
I didn't make it!
hey man, my clan has been hosting with Sys-techs (http://www.sys-techs.com) for over 5 months now and we LOVE them!! their guys are amazing... so helpful with setting everything up and free teamspeak/webspace are included. best part is it only costs $45/month for 24 player public servers! i asked em how it's so cheap and they said they buy servers in bulk and that most companies are rip offs!
Thats a good price for the size and all but I have a server I have been off and on with I use, but thx anyway.That would be a great starter company. CrimeScene

[color=black]Explains why I can't connect anymore. That's to bad CrazyCanuck. You gave me a heads up about your server once when I was talking about how the main servers won't put new maps into their rotation. Your server was fun because of all the unusual maps you ran.[/color]
