I've emailed several companies,over the last few days, which host servers for games.This company was the first to reply:

"We would be absolutely delighted to host the game.

However if we do start hosting the game, we would also like to produce a
website for it which will become part of the new MPZ gaming network (see http://www.mpz.co.uk:90 for a preview). We will provide support forums, a
new site design, columns etc etc.

Can you also provide some bandwidth usage details and required PC spec for
the server.

Thanks mate and speak to you soon!

Well,can you guys tell me where to get the info this guy needs.I'm kinda green when it comes to running servers

Oh yeah,it looks as though its not going to be your traditional TM server.I think you might have to use a utility to connect to a server.If thats the case,it could be good for us because it looks like it has a ton of features.I don't really know because I didn't totally check out the site.I'm not sure if we'd be able to connect to the server through the game.I don't know.........tell me what you think.Oh yeah,I think I got MSN Gaming Zone to put TM up on their network!!!!!!!!!

Yeah,I had the same problem.Just take port 90 off of it.I managed to look at the site and everything professional done and these people want to run servers for us.I even told him about running specialty mod servers and he said that would be no problem.I just need to get him the info that he needs to get it up and going.I'm glad to see Netgames up and running alond with some other servers, so we may not need this.Is there a such of thing as too many servers You guys with server nohow need to look at this service and give me the info the guy needs if you want the servers.

Great job Super,
Who knows, maybe we will need the bandwith when the m-player demo is released!
As for tapping the know how of our current servers, how about you gents and or LDA working up a tutorial/faq on how to setup run a personal server? There are a lot of people who are up to trying this out .

I sense a wonderful chaos building

That woud be great Weatherman.I thought there was a readme for running a server in the TM directory,but I don't seem to be able to find it.
