server.cfg resource thread
Ok lemme rephrase this then. Most people cant see their own server, but a select few can. More often then not you will not be able to. I also never said you couldnt see it in the LAN tab. So yeah. Do some research before you go calling me wrong. I wasn't 100 percent accurate on what I said. But i did rephrase it for you to where it is accurate.

What ip are you giving your friends?

but why cant my friends see it even though other people have joined it. also, why cant they see it in the "friends" server list when im in it?
Thats your problem. Go to or The ip address they give you is your external ip. Thats what you give your friends to connect because the connect externally to your network. IE outside your LAN. Anyone who is on your lan you would give them your internal ip address. IE Hope that clears it up for you. Oh yea if people are connecting that u didnt give the ip too, then your server is posted and your friends just are havin troubles findin it. But ya just give em the external ip and that should clear alot of the confusion up. Any more questions PM me or just ask on the forums. Were all here to help Smile. Delete your double post too. Mods dont appreciate stuff like that.
lol sorry the first time it said refused to add post so i did it again and there was two. haha kk thanks i'll try it out
my friend still couldnt find it even with the ip

i'll restart the server and get back to you on any problems
did you add the :27015 on the end. Also look under the lan tab to double check its running on port 27015. If its not then substitute 27015 with whatever it says. I am quite tired right now but will be on tomorrow and will help you get this squared away.
hey thanks a lot you've been really cool i think ive got this. i even played with someone who came in while i was screwing around and suiciding. haha anyways thanks a lot.
We are renting a gameserver from a company that uses Dual Xeon 3.2 1GB ram running Windows Server2003. This server is running a 32-man CS:S at 66tick and 510+ fps. We also are renting a dedicated box with the same specifications (but running CentOS 4.3) using the exact same server.cfg file but the most fps we have been able to get with only one game running is 334fps. Anyone have an idea what the single game server operator might be doing to boost the fps?

Here is the server.cfg for all our cs:s games:
[code]// server name

rcon_password "xxxx"

yes, you need to recompile the kernel and choose the 1000hz timer instead of the stock 250hz.

i am also running centos 4.3 and followed the instructions here: (it is about the 6th post down) the process takes maybe 30min or so, most of the time waiting in the 3 make commands following the options.

cd /usr/src/
tar -zxf linux-
cd linux-

cp /boot/config-2.6.9-22.0.2.EL .config
make clean (only necessary if you compile more than once)
make oldconfig

****somewhere in the following section is the kernel timer selection, make sure you choose the 1000hz option instead of the default 250hz****
keep hitting enter and take the defaults until you get to the CPU type. Select your CPU. Also in the SMP section select SMP if you have multiple CPUs. Oh, and select "(No Forced Preemption (server))" under that section. Everything else, just hit enter to take the defaults.

(this is the "quick and dirty" method. You can also run "make menuconfig" instead, go to the bottom of the menu, load your old config file, and then select everything in a menu individually if you wish. For most systems, the "make oldconfig" method works fine.)

Then to compile and install:

make bzImage
make modules
make modules_install
make install

Then to configure your boot loader in case of disaster:

nano /boot/grub/grub.conf


default=1 timeout=5 splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz hiddenmenu title CentOS ( root (hd0,0) kernel /vmlinuz- ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 initrd /initrd- title CentOS (2.6.9-22.0.2.EL) root (hd0,0) kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.9-22.0.2.EL ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 initrd /initrd-2.6.9-22.0.2.EL.img title CentOS_ServerCD (2.6.9-22.EL) root (hd0,0) kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.9-22.EL ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 initrd /initrd-2.6.9-22.EL.img

..make sure it looks something like this with default=1 and the new kernel ( on top. (Grub starts at 0, so "default=1" is still your old kernel. You change this later if it works out ok)

..then configure grub to boot to the new kernel one time. This way if it panicks or you can't get to the machine because the network service blows up, you can have the data center do a reboot and it will default back to the last kernel. If it does boot ok and everything looks good, edit grub.conf again and change it to "default=0" and it will boot the new kernel by default after that.

savedefault --default=0 --once

Reboot and see what happens. If it hangs, reboot again and you'll be back to your previous kernel.
Good luck.

it's not as hard as it sounds, of course this guide is a bit older now so when you go to there will be newer ones, i believe is the newest stable one.

naturally, if you jack up your server don't blame me but i've done quite a few using the above instructions without any issues.
