well, err I have 384k up but don't lookit me... I am in PA...
hehe auto, i know.
384Kbps upstream is where you can start hosting servers that can handle at least a few people. Geographical location can play a minor factor, but not as much as you might think. I've played Q3 on servers on the east coast and had around 80 ping which is pretty good. I just need to get a leased line with a block of IPs and be done with it.
hmmm well, depending on WHEN this tourney is, I could possibly host it on my dads 3meg/s connection at work but thats only during the summer
there's only one option! Configure the router at your dad's work to allocate a bunch of real world IPs to you, run an ethernet cable off the router straight to your house! hah!
hm...Quake 3 I dont have that one...looks like im out
Does anyone play any of the Marathon games anymore...I always liked those.
Marathon is dead.
UT or Quake 3. That's all there is nowadays.
hey cow, i was checking on that idea you had about using my web host as a dedicated game server. They said if I'm paying for a dedicated box they don't care what I do with it. The cheapest dedicated service they have at hostrocket is $175 a month. That system has the following specs:
1u RackMount WebServer
AMD Athlon 900 Processor
40gb EIDE Hard Drive
RedHat Linux 6.22
if I did that both this site and the game server would be running off of it. I would prolly run either Q3 (Urban Terror?) or UT (mod maybe?).
Two problems that I see:
1. 256MB of RAM. NEED MORE!!!
2. $175 a month. That would require $ coming in from this site... meaning banners or something.
But if I ever do this then it would be a fatty server (in reference to the insane upstream the server would have).
That would be cool as hell, but not really practical. That's a lot of money for just a game/webserver, especially since it isn't really necessary for what you have right now. I doubt that you would be able to get a significant amount of money from any sort of banner service or whatnot, considering that banner networks are shutting down right and left.
but it's cheaper than $500 a month for a T1 to my house.
Why don't you just go downtown, find an abandonned dotcom business office and squat in it. Take all the old equipment!
I'd be in, but it would have to be D2, Unreal, Starcraft, Warcraft
I would like to do a D2 tourney....Mabey make up a ladder or something. We could then just use the b.net and jake could save his $
We should have a fatty starcraft game, like 4 of us vs. 4 of them. Now that you can select what gateway you want it should go problem free.
don't worry, i'm not about to spend that much money unless i can offset it with the site.
not totally dead
I'm for a starcraft game.
Top vs Bottom. Real map, no bgh.
We need 2 more players who don't suck for a 4vs4
We should play rune (ya, ya it's not that great but I dont have UT or Q3)
Rune is fun with clannies.
I don't have Rune, Q3, or UT . I've been playing some Team Arena and UT demo, and Unreal is better then Q3 IMO .
i HAVE RUNE, UT, Q3 hehe
