Server wont run at 100tick. Help Needed
Hi guys.

We have recently got a new dedicated server and wanted to run a 16man 100tick server off it. We are using SuSE 10.0.

This is the command line we use to start it

Quote:./srcds_run -console -game cstrike -tickrate 100 +fps_max 600 +maxplayers 16 -autoupdate &

However when the server runs it is only 33 tick.

Some of the other settings are

Quote://Bandwidth Rates
sv_minrate "600"
sv_maxrate "20000"
decalfrequency "10"
sv_maxupdaterate "100"
sv_minupdaterate "60"

Any suggestions what could be wrong ?
take a look at this. this is how i start my server. First i made a file named by running the command (on fedora core 2):

I dont know if your OS has vi but there is probably some equivilant text editor you can use. Google it if you need to figure out what to use Smile

After that you should probably paste this (omit the hyphens):


#! /bin/sh
echo "Starting Cs:Source Server"
sleep 1
screen -A -m -d -S css-server ./srcds_run -console -game cstrike +map de_dust +maxplayers 16 -autoupdate -pidfile -tickrate 66 +fps_max 600


The tricky thing about vi is its really hard to quit if you dont know how.

First press [Escape]

then press [Shift] [;] to make [:]

then type q.

If you do it right, the semicolon should come up when you press it at the bottom left on the console. Then just press wq and enter.

It should look like this before you press enter:




That will save and exit.

Instead of doing ./scrds and putting all the parameters every time you just save it all to which executes it for you.

Then you have to run the command:


chmod +x


This will make the file executable. After thats done and the content is pasted in you can run the command (YOU MUST BE IN THE RIGHT DIRECTORY):




./ means execute the file.

So ./filename execute "filename". It's pretty self explanitory.

With this i am able to acheive 100 tickrate, although I have decided to keep my server at 66 due to a thread i read that said 100 is only needed for servers with over 18 players.

OK so now you have the correct runtime prompt, ive also been told that the tickrate doesnt even matter if you set the variable correctly in the server.cfg file.

heres mine:
