[bf1942] Info on the next beta

On lower-end CPUs such as the Duron the timing for the mainloop
can cause the server to sleep to much when it really should be
trying to keep up with the load.

This almost never happens on highend servers because they are
fast enough to allow more sleeping without getting to far behind.

I'm pretty sure this is one of the reasons people are seeing less
than 100% CPU utilization and game lag. It's on the TODO list
together with the one million other things :-)

Hello Andreas,

I have a Linux Server whis OB7 running direct in the Internet whis a 4,3
Gbit LAN.
The Server is a AMD Duron 1300 whis 256 MB SDRAM.

When i Host Pure BF on my Server i can get 20 Persons whisout going
under 20 FPS. 
If we are going OVER 20 Player the FPS drops down.
When i Host the BattleGroup Mod i have sometimes at 20 Persons FPS from

Top shows me Proz = ~50% and Mem = ~ 30% 

Under the MOD sometimes i have the LAG. But not ALL Player have it. 
Only Player how are in a Fight whis other Tanks and so on have the LAG.

WHY we have the LAG ? The CPU is Idel and the MEM is free ?????

If it was help you i will give you a ROOT Acount to the Server !
