RE: [bf1942] running mod on dedicated Linux ServerI got a pretty good idea what machine u running on? P4 per chance?
Also what bandwidth u set to?
Basically u need an opteron top end one with bandwidth limited
to 128K.
For a quite interesting read for the P4 fans out there check out the
following thread:

Quite neatly shows how Opterons eat P4's for breakfast and then
go off for lunch :P

N.B. Currently bench marking a Dual Operton 248 when the results
are out I'll post a link.

  Has 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.
