Okay, I am officially an idiot. Once I ran across that announcement about the suit, I switched to Enterthegame, however, after my hiatus of a week, I went back to gamesnet. For whatever reason, mIRC didn't keep Enterthegame as the goto server. I am on the correct page now :->

Thanks for looking out :->

Hey Shawn,

I am thinking you could host a decent size game (32 or 4). Some 56K users host a low number game, so with your 800k it would seem to be very possible. Although, I have never even tried to host a game, so maybe someone else could speak to this better than I.

I found some good info on bandwidth usage in this post:

http://www.webhostingtalk.com/archiv.../144540-1.html

Quote:
Our 32 person server ran on a 2.4 GHZ P4 w/1GB ram, load steadily in the upper 80% to lower 90%. Battlefield will also consume a TON of bandwidth, with our 32 player server to max capacity we were steadily pushing 3.5 MBPS. Each player consumes roughly 80-90 ish KBPS, if there is no cap on the server.

so with an 800k upload, i gues you can host around 10 people.. I guess we can just do a trial and error and see what happens :)

howdy all,

Its been a few weeks of computer hell, but I am back!
Tried to get onto gamesnet, but it has a problem.
I noticed that they have lost their domain name, so is it something new now?

Next Item: Gamesnet has been sued or lost a suit and is no more. Therefore we can no longer use that for our IRC network. My suggestion is that we move over to enter the game. They've been around a lot longer and have a big support base for gamers. I think several gaming leagues (TWL, CAL etc.) use this network. So for IRC it is now enterthegame #avsforum
