Valhalla, the new TM server courtesy of ramTHIS's schools LAN will should start making apperances immediately. It will be running 1.5.7 DM games, no teams, and normal settings 20frags/20minutes.

If you guys have problems with it, let me know, and I"ll try to figure out what's up...I'm new at this.

Sure, SuperUnknown, how many bots you want?

Also, our network gets kinda slow midday, so expect to see the server only at nights, like around 7 or 8 EST until either 1 or 2 or sometimes all night...if the network is going well...

I was downloading today at like 30KB/sec...and last NIGHT at like 130KB/sec...so you can see why it will only be at night...

Also, my comp isn't extremely high end...it's a P3 650 processor with normal video stuff...it doesn't play TM as well as my comp at home, so I don't know how much I will be able to play online, unless someone can tell me how to improve performance...it's very choppy video now...so I'm inclined not to play in fear of getting my butt kicked

Anyone know how I can improve the performance?

thanks...

ramTHIS - your computer will have no trouble at all being a server. Past about 200 mhz a TM server doesn't get much benefit, unlike most other games...

And if TM runs bad on your system - you probably have a junky video card. If you spent like 50 bucks (or less) to pick up a TNT2, TM would run wonderfully.

Since I'm here, I'll take the liberty of answering for ramTHIS, although he pretty much already said it.

Sure! Send him any suggestions you have!

yes, all suggestions, etc. are welcome. I AM at school, so it may take a day or 2 to get a response from me, or for me to get something to change...but still, let me have them!

P.S. : Valhalla is running tonight, Mon 1/15...and will continue all night until one of 2 things happen :

1.) comp freezes/crashes (I hope this won't happen)
2.) I turn it off

I'm going to my gf's to have pizza and watch a dvd tonight, so I won't be back here until maybe midnight...so if you're lookin for me, that's probably when I'll hop online and see who's here

well, I've heard a need for a normal DM server more than a CTF...with ctf, you only have 5 maps...so it's less condusive to people playing for a long time....maybe sometimes I'll run CTF, but mostly DM...what does everyone else think? if there's more need for ctf, I'll switch, but that's not the general vibe I've been feeling
