sv_region suggestions?
#1
I have my servers in Dallas, Texas. What sv_region would you recommend me to make the server appear on the master server list and give better pings to those of the selected region?

Right now I have it on sv_region 1 (East Coast) doesn't seem to be doing very well.

sv_region is just an indication of where your server is. It doesn't change anything in terms of ping.

If you're a perfectionist like me, I fill in everything from sv_region, straight up to the e-mail entry!

If other US players are getting lagspikes, you should check your rates.

The calculation for getting the maximum rate is:

Bandwidth * 128 / Players = maxrate

So if you're on 2Mb, and you want to run an 8 slot server, you would use:

256 (upload speed) * 128 / 8 = 4096

You always take the upload speed, as that's the most important factor. The maximum maxrate is 30000 and the minimum is 0 (unlimited).

What I meant is the region it is so that it displays correctly on most master server list (more people see it, more players in it).

Isn't that for HL engine? If I'm not wrong it's -1 for HL2/Source engine?

Yep, you can type "sv_region" and get a list. I keep mine in 6, simply because they're hosted in Manchester, UK.

lol well the exact location always gets better results, you might think about what you liek more:
1 more players (mostly noobs that don't check pings) and bad quality (World)
2 maybe a little less players but good quality low ping people (Exact location)
