"I will talk to LDA about having the ranked ddm on the LDA server."

So this whole time we've been secretly using Harm's cable modem? Well that explains a lot.

He got it Matey. You just didn't get that he got it.

666! What on Earth do you mean by talking to LDA about having the ranked DDM on the LDA server? That's what we've been using, no?

What he means is... doing the Ranked DDM on the public LDA main server (as opposed to a dedicated server). He's trying to avoid lag issues.

Taxi is correct about what I am trying to achive. Several folks dont attend the Ranked DDM because of the lag on the dedicated server. But I still need to talk to LDA Jim. We will see.

Almost forgot, Kong, it would only be one weekend a month that the LDA main server would have no teams, no shadow, and 20 minute events.

Aren't both the servers on the same physical machine and internet connection? If so, I don't understand the point. Certainly CPU cycles are not the issue. And bandwidth? Kong playing a bunch of bots at the same time as the ranked DDM isn't exactly taking much away. Please to educate me.

All of the Tread Marks servers are on the same computer... and it's open bare bones to the net on our fiber connection.

One issue would be to replace it (PII) with a PIII box as it could run more servers simultaneously.... I would assume that the network card is the weak link but maybe we'd see improvements with a faster CPU too...?

Actually, there usually are people on the stock server during the DDM.

Jim, a CPU upgrade would help a little, but it should be accompanied by a ram upgrade and an MTU settings reset, now as it happens i have an AWESOME little program for opening up more bandwidth sat on my ftp - want it ? It basicly a registry hack, but its pretty terific !! It overrides MS's stock settings - and BOY are they crap !

I'd take the RAM over anything!
Kong, if sharing is the answer... It's only once a month too... I guarantee you, you won't miss it! (personally I haven't got lag on DDM's but whatever).

You must be talking about Windows 98, ay Matrix? Back when my box had 98 (during the Mesolithic Era, as I recall) there was some tweaks to those settings that actually improved things tremendously.

If you've got 98 on the server Jim, this would be one of those rare occasions where my good buddy Matrix isn't off his rocker.
