I live in Portugal... and i tryed from diferente portuguese ISPs and the ping mantains in 60 / 80 ms ...
but i dont complain to much of playing with 60ms ping.. the problem is other players...
some people from german and other countrys have 10 / 30 ms of ping.. what i think its a good ping...
but the more weird thing is that players with that great and lower ping say the server is "laggy"
i think i have a problem in the configuration of my server.. i tryed some diferent settings but i dont know how to set it up correctly ...
can annyone help me pleaseSmile
thanks in advance
your upload is only 1Mb or so according to your speed test (are you sure that is correct? you should try to get a speed test closer to your server because it may be limited if you are doing it all the way from florida). you will need some sort of setting for minrate and maxrate, if set to 0 it may cause weird issues for the clients. try setting it to min 5000 max 12500 and see what happens.
Thanks for your reply... i made some more speedtest.. now this time in a French speedtest because server is located on france... here is the result...

i think this is a more real connection test... ill try that settings that you say.. but i think i need something more .. like a correct ticketrate and others...
with that upload and just 12 slots you should do minrate 5000 maxrate 25000, remember to put something in there besides 0.
Wouldn't he able to host a even bigger server on tha upload ? [/align]
you can almost host 6 full 18 player 33 tick servers on that connection.
however, the server won't be able to handle it due to low specs Smile

like fqdn said set sv_minrate to something like 5000 or so.
I prefer to use sv_maxrate 30000 (since this is the maximum, not that you'll ever reach it though)

Also on a side note, I've said it before. "decalfrequency" has nothing to do with bandwidth, it's for setting how fast (set it to 20 the user will be able to spray every 20 secs) one can spray his decal on the wall
