MessageYep must agree Ut is one of the easiest servers to config and run. And with the webadmin its a dream to remote admin Its a feature thats been built in since the original UT. Pity more game devs didnt include similar support

  Do you want to quantify "I still can't get over the lousy game support on BF42"?
  Although there was an almighty cock-up with the latest patch support from the
  folks at dice has been pretty good.

  If UT games are unstable on ur system I would suggest u look at ur install
  / configs as they run fine here.

    I still can't get over the lousy game support on BF42. It looked like the game to take over my HL servers in time... but guess not. Knowing this, I wouldn't have bought the game in the first place, and seeing after-release-support on both BF42, BF'nam, and other games delivered by EA, I'll have a real hard time convincing myself to put my hard earned money in other games like BF2.

    HL2 is pretty good. Seeing client requirements and all the debris flying about, I never expected this good performance as it is running how.
    However much of the rant posted on HARD|OCP is true. Valve goofed a lot not supplying the SDK to the major admintool creators in advance. 
    The CS:Source community is now begging for decent admintooling since the RCON use is rather limited. Guess there's shit all about the gameworld.

    Still, Once you got steam running well, it's quite easy maintaining. Atleast the code trees are the same, so your linux box will stay about nicely after an update
    Also Valve's history of supporting the first Half-Live looks promising... Though they could and should have done better in reparing the release of the Source engine.

    COD is said to run well, but haven't tried it myself. my experiences with UT (classic, 2k3 and 2k4) were not much of a happy face to me. Not stable enough, and though a nice webinterface, it was a bit to picky when installed on Linux for my use. (it didn't deal well with my SMP kernels)
