I am going to take down my servers, basically it costs to much to host them on a dedicated box by myself and a vps wasn't reliable enough. random spikes all the time, dedicated is surely the best way to go...

But I am sending the fte/fodffa files to Top and he is going to run the same mod "He doesn't have to pay for his servers".

The FFA server will be set up in Virginia, I'll post back here once I get the IP.

It seems that VPS just can't handle QuakeWorld, which is weird considering I am running a Ultima Online server on it with about 60 people with no problems. Maybe it's just not optimized?

I bet Ultima Online doesn't require nearly as many updates per second per player as Quakeworld.

Err I don't think about 12 000 entities which have a script constantly running for them + various other thousands scripts running in the background can match that

With the VPS the connection was not stable, Everyone was getting random PL spikes during gameplay. There's too much sharing on a VPS...

Once I switched to the dedicated box it was perfect, never had any problems.

Thank you Darin for running the servers. Can't point my finger on what it was but I enjoyed it more than Nobody's Alternative.

Thanks for the comments.

Sorry I simply cannot afford it, It's 90$ a month for the box...

Taking down the FFA made QW die a little more but I can't help it :-[.
