Keep an eye out for it.

I'll be keeping the player limit low & connection settings will be conservative, hopefully this'll provide a fair & stable environment at least. The firerate will be the same as PK's, tho the maplist & nexbeam will be the default for now.

I know sweet FA about setting this stuff up so don't get too excited. If it works then It'll be on either when I feel generous or when we need it as a clan. It's not intended to be a permanent server, just for us as & when required, ie for training, 1v1 or testing different game types together.

1st test tonight (hopefully) & intend to have it running dedicated at some point this weekend.

OK, seems to be up. Just search for 'lost' or '666' Wink

Reported ping looks screwy for some reason, needs testing Wink

I had the same problem using windows. but it worked on linux. Maybe try the opposite way around?

Maybe the better idea would be for us to contact Tceins and ask to loan/rent/something with his other server. I may be wrong but i don't think it's getting too much usage.

He could say no, he could say yes. who knows. Razz

It works Wink

It doesn't show up on the server list even tho it's set as public, people can join tho.

So open those consoles & 'connect 217.43.134.252:9090'

I'll keep it up all weekend Wink

Update: I've decided to rent a server Shocked

It should've been ready for me on Wednesday but there's been a delay. As soon as I get it I'll set nex up, or attempt to, lol).

I'm renting on a monthly basis so if it doesn't work out there's little lost, tho I'll only maintain it providing it gets some use Razz

It'll start with a similar config to PK's server, something we all know & love. Once it's up we can discuss its future & maybe offer additional modes in addition...

Team DM minsta & LMS minsta come to mind... Wink

Just need to get it now!!! Evil or Very Mad

Thanks Rav Smile

I've played with maxrate & ticrate since you played, seems to be a little smoother. Also better for everyone but me... ah well, c’est la vie Rolling Eyes

Only problem now seems to be map load time. I'll see if Debian can take my Arch tweaking Twisted Evil

Fragg u soon Wink

O.o I'll be on quite a bit this morning if people are around anyway. Smile

Edit: I did try. Well quite a few of us were there but we had lag xD

Please explain your lagg to me. I had some movement lagg, which made it a little jerky when running around, tho player characters moved freely & my aim was very good. It seems to be the opposite for people living further away, a better compromise obviously needs to be reached (tho someone from florida was happy with it - lol).

I'll play with some settings next time I see people there, as what makes things better for me often makes it worse for others. Rolling Eyes

I've added a few tweaks to the server itself too, tho I haven't noticed any difference with load times or while playing the bot...

Try it again, I'll cu there later Wink

It's much better now, if I may say so myself Wink

Not perfect, but I've played with others for 3 hours straight with no major problems. Shocked

I've tweaked the OS a little, along with the config. The result is faster map loads, smoother play & fewer laggs. I think the remainning lags are due to CPU limitations & occur because of antilag, something I feel is best left on.

Some peeps still complain tho Rolling Eyes

My PC is fine now Razz I was on yesterday, Kanon saw me Razz he's the only one I know we both know :O

An idea. Team Games server? Why I say this is because there are already DM servers using minsta. I know it can be done but I'm not quite sure on how to include TDM, Domination, CTF, and all games like that all on one server.

It would be good so other clans can come along and play vs us if we are all there and stuff Razz and I'm using RapidshareRenither now Razz

I'll be on later. Right now I'm talking to my "Friend" just came here to drop a few lines, I should be here between 3 and 6 at some time Smile

kk

Yeah, I'm thinking of other game modes too, primarily LMS minsta. Team games will be considered, TDM & Domination are both très cool. A minsta CTF could quickly become elitist & tbh, we'd all get our ass's kicked by any regular flager Razz

With my current server I think I'm limited to the one game type, I've not seen the status at full capacity since I tweaked the hell out of it tho. In the near future I may be able to offer plain minsta in addition to one or two alternatives. I'll not jinx it by saying any more right now, you'll know soon enough if it goes ahead Wink

More maps will be on their way too Wink

Nah Minsta CTF is very different. I've had the luck of playing it with some good players. It's really aimed heavily at people who use hook a lot and move fast. Works for me I guess. The key in normal CTF is people use obscene tactics which I can't get used to.

I think it's possible by just using something like g_tdm 1, g_ctf 1 or g_gametype 1 or something like that. I honestly forgot. It should auto change the gametype by default then if you select a ctf map you get ctf, selecting a lms map gives you lms. Razz and stuff like that.

Maybe thats possible without the gametype thing. I'm just thinking because we'd have the only team games minsta server, drilling home the clan prospects of nexuiz even more Smile

I think the best people to ask about this are Tceins and Bluerobot since I don't know if they still had it but they had the ability to switch game modes on the PK server a while back.

As for the maps. You don't need to use your own download/upload space, I hear you can set up map downloading via the Nexuiz Ninjaz repo.

I've got a Domination game up for testing. I played last night with Ravage & it seemed to work fine, tho I've not tested all maps yet. It's running along with the regular minsta but with a lower priority, so don't expect low latency if the other server has players. As I said, it's just a test, I'd appreciate some feedback on it (I don't want to hear about lag, just anything that doesn't work, ie map selection, flag positions, etc & any suggestions).

One thing I could use some help with are the maps. Not all maps are suitable for all game types, is there a list of what maps can be played in a certain mode anywhere?

Wink

I'll look into the maps. Aren't all capable of running domination?
