<div class="IPBDescription">Server fine then lags ?</div> Hi, i sometimes host a server on my PC when its not on.

It'll run fine for about 20mins then all of sudden lag REALLY bad.

Is it a bandwidth problem or is it just a computer problem?

I have Blueyonder 512k.

AMD Athlon 2400+ xp
725mb of RAM (something like that... its one 512mb and one 256mb chip. CBA to do math)

Like i said, is it my connection? If so, why doesnt it lag all the time? Or is it my PC spec (and the fact that i havent tweaked it or anything for server use)

    To start, what is your upload speed, and what type of connection? (Cable, DSL)
  • JimmehJimmeh Join Date: 2003-08-24 Member: 20173Members, Constellation
    Cable and 256kb.

    Now i thought thats pretty low and thats probably it, but why would it do it half way through a match then and not at the start?

    A question easily answered.

    At 256 kbps upload, ur server can hold 8-10 people. Definitely NOT more than 10 people (cuz my 128 k server could only hold 5 people MAX) ... so do the math <!--emo&:)--><img src='' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif'><!--endemo-->

    Anyways, why does ur server start lagging midgame?


    Turret farms and lots of people shooting, devouring, biting, and blowing up taxes your server to the extreme.

    You need to get a rate management plugin that restricts the transfer rate to and from the clients, you need to get rid of ALL extraneous plugins, and you MIGHT want to get a plugin that limits the number of turrets per tfac or the number of OC's in general. That will go a long way in helping your server.

    If you tweak your server PERFECTLY and if you totally dedicate your 256 k upload JUST for NS, you MIGHT be able to get lag-free games of 9 to 10 players tops

    good luck!

    Oh christ another UK "admin wannabee" nub :/

    When will they learn that the UK spin on IT (or ICT, whatever they call it now) is plain ignorance?

    Meh, I don't know, it just pisses me off to see fellow countrymen humiliate themselves without even knowing it... *sighs*
