Ok, I am hosting the OV clan server (as I stated in previous messages) and I am having trouble. It seems that my computer has overdone its memory. Here is what I have: 2.0 GHz Intel Pentium M CPU (same thing as a P4) 512 MB RAM ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 Video Card, 128 MB memory 54 Mbps Wireless Internet The computer setup is quite powerful, but for some reason, the ENTIRE COMPUTER has almost maxed the RAM AND - for some ST00PID reason - has 400 MB of JUNK page filed to the hard drive !!! LOL This basically causes a LOT of lag on the server when more than four people are online at once, and it also makes the computer freeze for up to four seconds at a time at random intervals throughout the day. The system resources are gone and I am getting annoyed. I even created a new installation of JA for the server that has VERY FEW mods in it, thereby limiting the amount of memory taken up - and it STILL is getting worse. I have installed Spybot - Search & Destroy, so it's not spyware. Any help????? :uhoh:
The server's IP is 126.96.36.199 You can see what I mean when you connect - lag lag lag!! lol I'm not solicitising, I'm just asking for help. ;)

hmmm, wireless-wireless is a pain when setting up servers. Also, delete all the cookies you have, use antivirus for any worms. "400MB of junk page" isnt really clear, but the 400MB being taken up even if it is stuff that you dont need shouldnt cause lagg. Zemmurk
I have already done everything you said about virus scans and worms. What I mean by 'page file' is that my computer has turned 400 MB of my hard drive into RAM to compensate for the overloaded memory. In fact, it has actually gone over 1.5 GB of hard drive space turned into RAM and then everything went HAYWIRE. I need to figure out why there is so much stuff loaded that my computer 'needs' 1GB when windows is loaded and no server is running. Seriously, this is ridiculous.
Just as a sidenote, it can't be the wireless internet. The server usually gives a ping of about 73 for people in the US. It's just that when You get 4 people or more, the CPU gets bogged down and can't go fast enough. I need to close whatever invisible programs are running, but I can't see them to close them - not even in the task manager.
