RE: [bf1942] running mod on dedicated Linux ServerHas anyone been able to figure out how Nvidia runs their BFV servers @ 50 players with no lag?  I ping 100 on them ( cross country ) and I dont lag whereas my local pub is @ 42 and doesnt run as well.

I fail to believe that there is something they know that I dont when it comes to running BF servers.

Any ideas?

  Actually I think it just needs to have game.serverDedicated set to zero because otherwise it won't do anything.

  I fixed this for BF1942 by just ignoring the serverDedicated flag when generating CRCs.

  Excellent... so that makes the file:

  - ----------------- 8< -------------- snip --------------- 8<
  @echo off
  echo Building MD5 fingerprints

  set EXE=BfVietnam
  set MOD=BfVietnam

  set FILES=Ho_Chi_Minh_Trail Ho_Chi_Minh_Trail_alt Hue Hue_alt Ia_Drang
  Khe_Sahn Landing_Zone_Albany Lang_Vei Operation_Flaming_Dart
  Operation_Game_Warden Operation_Hastings Operation_Irving Quang_Tri

  ren Mods\%MOD%\settings\serversettings.con serversettings.bak

  for %%x in (%FILES%) do %EXE% +game %MOD% +restart 1 +hostServer 1
  +generateMD5 %%x

  ren Mods\%MOD%\settings\serversettings.bak serversettings.con
  - ----------------- 8< -------------- snip --------------- 8<

  Change MOD and FILES to suit your mod/server.
