You'd think with all the nice connections some of you have, we could just host it on one of your machines, aeryn has a nice low ping I'm sure that would be ok  Wink

Also, you should consider the extra work involved in maintaining the whole server. I didn't mention it in my pricing post but I'd imagine those i5/i7 xeons could probably do 2 servers per core if needed.

i have ran a dedi server when i had a clan it's not just the money its the time that goes into it Sad its fine just going to get a server and saying i want 24 or so slots paying the money and putting mods on it,

  and if things go tits up you just write a ticket,with the dedi your alittle stuck alone and time has to go into it more so if you have 6 running,but its possible

  we had a nice program on ours so we could sell some and it would just set up the game of your choice with a click of the button.

And a dedi dosnt mean its going to solve all ping problems or issues with the server,

  Still it is worth the thought. like i said maybe a little trial with one  maybe if binks is interested i can get us a couple week trial on a dedi so thg dont lose any money.

  Infact if it does happen i will pay to rent a cod server from thg  Very Happy  or use it as a test server  Shocked

If time involved in setting up and maintaining systems is an issue, I doubled as unix admin while attending uni. Set up and ran a counterstrike server in this period too. Just missing the beard, other than that I think my 1337 commandline skillz are still up to par Smile

I would be happy to help out by donating some spare time (in the evenings, in weekends) to get & keep things running. In return, all I ask are regular flamewars about topics like which is the superior commandline editor (VI, obviously).

I'm just going to bump my own post because I'm wondering if there is no need for my offer, or if there is some other reason why this didn't get replied to. Either way I'd like to know Smile

If the costs add up, the latency is low and stable, and the community admins have time, then I say go for it. IP changes are not a big issue, have a transition period, then once on the new system utilise DNS and reserve looks up, and have thg1.triggerhappgamers.com, thg2.trig... etc. for future proofing.

Plus the Minecraft server sound tempting  Cool

@Schaap

from what i heard, Source Servers run better on Windows, so *if* anything is done, it would most likly be a Windows Server, where your Shell-Skills wouldnt pay off too much Wink
But I don't see why experienced help would be a bad thing Wink always nice to have a helping hand.

@Sandz

I suggested use of DNS a long time ago, but it actually doesn't really help at all, as the Server Browser resolves the name and saves the IP. The only benefit would be, that manually adding w/o copy and paste would be easier and ofc it looks cooler.


about Dedi-Box in general, I guess it would be "cheaper" as you can run more servers on one box:

(prices not correct)
example: our 3x cost say 80€ and dedi that can run 5x server would cost 90€

that'd be cheaper in relation, but atm we only manage to fill 2 Server consistently and then there is the responsibility that comes with a dedi-box, if Binksy were to order it, he would take full blame when something goes wrong with. If it gets hijacked and used to distrubute warez, CP or send spam he would be in a lot of trouble.

So you would deffo need someone experienced and dedicated enough to read logs and update the thing on a regular basis.

I thought we could rent a detected server, if everyone meant buying one and keeping it with someone then I saw NO, it won't work.

umm i also think this would now be more trouble then is worth to binks

It isn't an insatiability,as slate said distribute warez, CP or send spam he would be in a lot of trouble. maybe a little extreme  as i had one for a while and it was not an issue,

but again as slate says it would be if we were not to keep on top of it and that means day in day out,

 I don't think anyone in this community could contribute to that not even the founder.

 It was an idea that i think needs to be looked at later on maybe with a new game like tf2 on the market but at the mo with only tf2 to rely on then it isn't the way to go.


So for the moment this thread should be grounded Exclamation
