I would say max 32 slots in total...

But you haven't posted your server computer specs, CPU, RAM, VCARD, (vcard doesn't really matter though, and harddrive, you don't need more than 10GB :p)
32 slots counting you will put in an sv_downloadurl because with 2mb/s you won't get very great speeds. Or host maps everyone has!
i have a intel core 2 duo E8400 @ 3.0ghz 4gb of ram Nvidea 8800 gt 512mb
i can barely host 9 slots without pings going to over 500+
Iwould say probabbly 12 slots at those current speeds, but with cox there would be powerboost which only lasts like what 10 minutes?
So probabbly at 2.5megs it would be 12 slots 100 tick

thankyou cookies for the best help out of these guys
If you are running and playing on same pc use the sticky on this forum

Without that u should be able to run 2 32 slot 100tick
err, upload speed will be the limit here. with tick 100 I guess 32 slots will already be too much. but I am not quite sure. try it out, you will see the ping rising at some point... (Linux Kernel HOWTO!)

ok, this is the thing. my internet provider ( cox ) ping boosts their internet for first 10 mins of using it, then it " fails ". i can host about 12 slots with out pings going through the roof. 32 slots you would need atleast a 5mb upload speed stable. not cox. i will try this. maybe i just need to restart my server every 10 mins. ( lol yeah right )
I hosted 2 32 slots with my old COX and it worked at 100 tick O_o
now i Have verizon >Big Grin
well, host your servers in some data center, that's better in any case Toungue (Linux Kernel HOWTO!)
