RE: [bf1942] running mod on dedicated Linux ServerMy pub is running on a P4 2.8E

When its full the usage is around 40% as reported by Zabbix.

Dont know how it could be the CPU here.....

Right now i'm running a test 56 man server on a Dual Xeon 3.0ghz 533FSB to see how that runs.

Do you really think that player count is chipset specific?  I just find that very hard to believe.

My choke on my pub on the P4 is already set to 128k and has been.  When you say limited do you mean the server bandwidth limit or the client bandwidth limit?

  I 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.
