Well, the Linux server was simply not playable. The bungee effect is
just too crappy, and the mis-timing of big-gun shots vs. their
perceived recoil or whatever was too screwy.
So, I downloaded winex3.0 from cvs, compiled, and got it running
eventually. The machine is a dual AthlonMP 1800+, and runs 2
20-player CS servers along with the one 30-player BF1942 server. Xvfb
generally eats about 4-25% of a CPU (which I think is far too high,
personally), and the 'wineserver' thread runs around 10% of a CPU, and
the 3 'wine BF1942.exe' threads total around 30% of a CPU.. well,
that's current usage, and there are only 4 players on the server.
Here are some more stats:
Basically, though, the feel is that the two 20-plr CS servers (running
-pingboost 2) start lagging when the BF server reaches around 24
players, and the BF server also lags aroune 26-27 players.
Good enough for now...
