PUBLIC SERVERS, WITHOUT HOST

Post by Nets p2 » Fri Dec 07, 2018 2:34 pm

Hello my name is Nets, I will be using google translator to try to express myself better, I play this game since the first versions, already had to be almost 6 years, the biggest problem we found today is the availability of quality servers, despite having bought the new version, there are no servers in your country to play with your friends, despite the possibility of someone opening the server at any time we do not have servers online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, one of the suggestions to the creators would be that to create a kind of public server that is ordered by the game itself and that is available 24 hours a day, so that would bring more players to the game.

Example:

Official server of brazil: 0/8, rotating official maps with each fight.

Official Server of the United States: 0/8, rotating official maps with each fight.

Official Server of Russia:: 0/8, rotating official maps with each fight.

I hope you understood me, grateful.

This is a good idea, however it is a lot easier said than done. It would require Mythologic Interactive to partner with individuals from those certain areas, which is unrealistic (for now). I’m sure that as a community we can try to work something out. For now we have Blurry and Muelfire which are basically the defecto official servers.

Speaking of servers without a host, how do you use/open the dedicated server software? Is it on program files or something?

Well if you are already port forwarded, it’s as simple as opening up the dedicated software and pressing start

Me too. Before the paid version, the dedicated server is really unstable. After the update, so far my servers have not crashed yet for 2 days which is unbelievable to me. Next year I probably can host 24/7/365 once I move to new place. Also gonna get more upload bandwidth for hosting.

I enabled the auto restart by time and memory usage. Gurt fixed the bug that exists in the free version, so now the memory usage feature works even with multiple servers. I'm not 100% sure about the stability yet because the player base is small and few players join my server.

Another tip is to make sure to enable high power mode in windows and disable any features that can put your graphics card or network card into sleep as that can screw up the server software. Highly recommend to set up to restart the server once every day.
