  • The specs for our current server which runs fine with low CPU usage - so low that we are able to run a 22 player NS and a 12 player CS:S on the same CPU. System: (serenity.thehavennet.org.uk:27015) P4 3.0 1MB cache (the cache is all important for …
  • I would suggest that you wont be able to run more than around 8 players on that server (thats me being generous). Unfortunately NS does use a lot of CPU cycles and Half Life is not threaded (i.e. it wont take advantage of the extra processor). The s…
  • Compared to the ati drivers the NVIDIA ones are rather nice to install I assume you can get X working prior to the NVIDIA drivers being installed ? Also what kernel are you running and what card do you have ? Anyway I've gotten my Natural Selecti…
  • QUOTE ow I have Steam on Wine almost working, and Steam on WineX also almost working. Both give me "Cannot connect to steam network" error though. Atleast regular Half-Life and all the other games I want to play work. You get this a lot in the e…
  • Hmmmm was hoping to avoid a flamewar on this one, but I'm not surprised that one is starting. Windows is good, linux is also good the relative merits of either probably deserve another thread - I did this for fun and out of curiosity and not becaus…

  • Ditto, its working fine for me on quality 4. Quality wise it is a little tinny with everyone having that "stuck in a cardboard box" sound about their voice. But voices are easily understandable and its causing no noticable lag or other problems.
  • Ta for the info Cheesy, you are probably right and I guess we might have your old server. I've dropped players to 18 so hopefully that will help ... I'll know more once I get some player feedback after the weekend.
  • Tried all of the above (that is relevant for linux), still no joy. Ping rockets once CPU usage hits the magical 86% - this usually happens 20 mins into the game and with 16 or more players (the specific CPU usage number may just be co-incidence but …
  • All of the above it should be noted are windows based fixes. Thanks anyway but I am using linux
  • Thanks Archon - I'll pull that plugin and also drop the sys_ticrate setting (kernel default HZ=100). Hopefully that will help things.
  • You aren't the only one - I am getting the same and running the following mods: Metamod Cheating Death Clanmod nsstatusbar autoassign AMX - auto_random.amx Yeah a fair few plugins I know - I've was prevously running them all under NS…
  • Some plugins still only have partial support i.e. clanmod under NS 3.0 beta 3. Other plugins i.e. Unstuck Pro simply dont work at all. Most plugins thankfully work just fine for me. Update - fix info for Unstuck Pro and NS beta x - not tested it …
  • Have gone with clan-serv, I'll post up how good/bad the experience is or alternatively you can join the server and find out for yourself once its up (at some point next week). Thanks for the advice CheesyPeteza
  • You have a point, appologies I should have thought that one through a little more before posting - I simply thought of blocking the host but didnt think through that referals come from the client and not the host ...
  • Give me a week and I'll have at least one havennet server back up and running. We pride ourselves on good teamplay and well admin'd servers. Basically we run servers that we want to play on and we have a good community base of skilled players to ens…
  • Personally I would try and achieve what you are doing using the DENY directive. Simply set up a .htaccess within the relevant directory and configure the access controls as per the guides set out in the manual: http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/ho…
  • Thanks they seem to offer a really good deal and I hadnt heard of them before you mentioned them, they may well end up my first choice. Regards Haven
  • Sorry to re-awaken an old thread but I am now in the position of needing a hosting company (preferably uk based) to host a dedicated Natural Selection server. Having looked around the options suggested in here, plus a couple of options I have found…
  • And this ladies and gentlemen is the reason that Half Life continues to be popular. Where else do so many give so much for free ! Nice offer shockwave
  • There are plenty of servers around - using: All Seeing Eye Gamespy 3D or HLSW Will enable you to find them. If you are based in the uk (or anywhere else for that matter) and enjoy a tough teamplay environment then you are also welcome on my ow…
  • Good luck guys, glad to hear you are coming back. Keep the interviews coming as thats what you are famous for. Regards Haven
  • [email protected] - server 1 has been running steam for well over a month now and its been empty for well over a month now as well. The unfortunate reality is that a lot of NS players cannot (or wont be bothered to try) get Steam to run reliably with Natural S…
  • I have run custom maps several times on both my servers - all they do is empty the server as 3/4 of the people cant be bothered to download them so they simply go play elsewhere. Also there aren't that many custom maps for Natural Selection and as …
  • http://www.unknownworlds.com/forums/in...ST&f=18&t=53036 Guys stop bringing the ATI HL FPS issues up in different threads - someone sticky a master issue thread please as I've seen it crop up in lots of threads now and hopefully the number …
  • Guys you are unfortunately barking up the wrong tree. Note the user has an ATI card - these have serious problems with Half Life at the moment that have been ongoing since about cat 3.2. The only way these issues will be solved is if those with the…
  • Try running your server with those cvars in the command line as well as in the server.cfg i.e. ./hlds_run ... +sv_lan 1 See if that helps - it may not be detecting them from the server.cfg for whatever reason.
  • Secondary weapon - bayonette (chain knife ?) or just the ability to bash things with your gun rather than reload. The idea of 4 x HA's bashing the hell out of an Onos with empty grenade launchers appeals in a strange way ...
  • Details such as server ip / subnet mask and network details (you all on the same subnet ?) would help ? Also what does your server start line look like i.e you using +sv_lan ? What OS (linux/BSD/Windows) ? Are you running a firewall on the server …
  • Note to all - dont bind v to your voice comm's ;P It works great until you comm at which point you realise that v is also the bind for recycle ... I had a very bad game until I figured this one out *grins* Out of curiosity, what scripts do you nee…
