Hi Andreas,

Great to hear from you :) Nice job on creating The Best Video Game Ever.
I'm getting 64 players on Gulf of Oman on Win2k server with only a P4
2.4 Gz 2.5GB RAM. The CPU is pegged at 100%, but the game play is still
fantastic with no lag. I'm expecting that I may have lucked out for that
map only, and will need a phatter CPU if I want to stay at 64 players
when the game comes out.

Thanks for the tip, that worked great!

So if we were to write our own remote rcon tool we would also have to
pass exec before we send the command? The exec is required by the server

You might not know the answer to this but will the new BF2CC app log to
a database? It says it logs all admin commands, but does it log to a
plain file or to a DB? I would like to keep a web log of admin kicks and
bans, similiar to what I did with bf1942. That lets players know they
were banned and what they need to do to become unbanned.
