Server player limit? (max players the server can hold?)

Post by Kibit » 05 Jul 2008 23:56

Is there a limit with nations forever on the max players a server can hold or is it just down to the link and server specs?

I have search and searched many different phrases such as "server player limit" "max server players" etc and not found the answer.

Anyone know?

If you run the server on your own computer, it can hold only what your computer and internet can handle.. you wont really know until you try.
set it to like 45 and see if it can take it, if so make limit higher

Thanks for the answer but that's not what I was asking.

Running the TM server/s from a fully dedicated server in a data centre on a very decent up & down link.

I'm asking if there is a limitation for the TM Server on max players or if it's just down to machine specs and up and down links from the data centre.

After TMF first came out there where some huge servers. I have played in one that had 243 players at once. I am fairly sure the player limit in the dedicated is 250 players, but it would be pointless to run one that large now since only the top 32 or so players can earn points.

Also, once you pass a certain amount of players in the server, the server is still not struggling, but the p2p between the players tends to get strained unless you get lucky and have a group of players that have very good Internet connections.
