First server is desirable to keep apart. Ie do not put no any additional software, so any CPU intensive. And do not play on computers where there is a server.
So what the best hardware for your server?
It all depends on the purposes for which you want to create a (public or the server for the clan Carlsbad) and on how many slots it will be.
If this is a public server on the slots, then 16-20 1.8Ghz processor and 1512 RAM should be sufficient. This is the same server hardware pulls for HF. Sq server is usually created for 12 people. 10 players a slot for a demo u1 slot just in case.
If you want to create a server for more slots, respectively, and then the iron would be better. Also, the ping server will affect the speed of the Internet channel. The minimum speed of the Internet to the server 20 slots will be about 1mb / c.
How to make a permanent server?
To make permanent the server does not need to turn off the computer. Or you can rent a server. Way that the server was working at the computer is off, does not exist yet.
Windows or Linux?
And so what platform to choose for the server. Here the answer is unequivocal, Linux. But not everyone knows how to work with this operating system, so in this article we will examine the server under Windows XP.
Optimizing for WINDOWS server stability
You can tell a lot. I'll try to lay out the most basic:
• On the Internet, plenty of programs to help you optimize your OS, as well as connection. Download any, for example, XPTweaker or Auslogic Bootspeed.
• recommend to completely disable the swap file, if you have RAM 768 MB or more.
• Delete the prefetch. How? Create a text document. Call it: deleteprefetch
Open this file here and write this line: del C: \ Windows \ Prefetch \ *.* / Q
Save this file with the extension. Bat Run the file.
• The next tweak. Start \ run \ write: regedit
Open up like this: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Control \ Session Manager \ Memory Management
DisablePagingExecutive is replaced by a
LargeSystemCache is replaced by a
Restarting the computer
Also recommended that you defragment your hard drive.
Making the server configuration
Then I will not paint all of the commands and what they mean. I simply lay out your config and judge him as you have.
Server in console mode
Probably many of you know that the server in console mode works much better than usual. This is due to the fact that the server normally eats extra resources because of its GUI. To fix this case press the right mouse button on the label and our server in the object after we finish these lines hlds.exe-console-game cstrike + maxplayers count servo slot + map mapname-port 27015.
Well, here's all. I hope badly will not scold for mistakes and writing style. The school did not learn to read and write is not trained.
