Windows server 2003, will it allow more flags?

Post by Winny » Sat Jan 28, 2006 3:29 pm

I recently got a copy of windows server 2003, and my question is:

When I use this for SolarFlare, will I be able to have more flags, or is this a general limit for all windows builds?

Im not 100% sure, but I know when keiths game was popular, they had a windows server with more than 10 flags, and more than 20 people.

I am assuming that this is becuase they are running off of a Windows server platform ?

thanks.

2003 will allow more conections ( players )


there has never been a flag limit on windows.

if your server had one, then it was ether a bandwith limit or some other problem on the system.

you assume far far to much

the flag amount seemed to have a effect on the player limit.

It seemed to do it to me too. I don't host a server anymore.

then you were probably flooding out your connection. flags do take more bandwith since the status of each has to be sent to each client.

yes he is right i also have (had) the same problem
one of the problems was that you couldnt actualy join the server you could connect but not join if there was more than 10 flags... dont know why but its only on windows so i resolved to linux
ALL HAIL LINUX :lol-old:

The moral is dont use windows.

No joke, this is a perfect example.
