Do you guys have an always up server?

If not, I can probably get one for you.

Chipping $10/mo into my Battlefield clan's account gives me Cortex access and the ability to setup game servers on our boxes if I want. Since LFS uses little bandwidth & CPU (right?) and the server would be password protected and therefore not full 24/7, I think the server managers would be fine with it.
We don't have a server atm, but we would like one ;)

Dedicated server uses little CPU, and you'd need over 1mbit up (and down) for full grid I think. Although we rarely have full grid...

EDIT: Windows box? 'couse there's no linux version of server app, you'd need to run it with wine I think.
got this info from the lfswiki:
 4 guests,  4 cars :   4.9 KB/s
 8 guests,  8 cars :  21.4 KB/s
11 guests, 11 cars :  41.6 KB/s (demo max)
12 guests, 12 cars :  49.9 KB/s
15 guests, 15 cars :  79.1 KB/s (S1 max)
16 guests, 16 cars :  90.4 KB/s
20 guests, 20 cars : 142.9 KB/s
23 guests, 20 cars : 165.9 KB/s (S2 max)
so 1,3mbit would be max
did some searching, for LFS @ Linux with Wine:
Yeah, it's Windows. I'll pass this thread along and see what they say.

Oh, and if they're okay with it, I'll need a config file from you guys. ;)
It's a go. Someone make me a config file.
Yeah, the server's up with a pretty much default config, I just wondered if there was anything config specific you guys wanted...
Mmm, there aren't many things to set actually.

Most important is probably the smoothness of the connection: that should be maxed to 6packs.

Other than that, maybe Start in Reverse finishing order. And also Allow users to change track.

Probably easiest thing is to give the username/pass to someone (e.g. ESPN), so that in case there is something that needs to be adjusted he can do it once we start racing.

Thnx again Viper, good job. :thumbsup:

Now I can safely skip a race knowing you wont miss me...

Just kidding, I wouldn't skip a race ;)

You can skip a race or 10 :p.
It's currently a S1 server (it was setup wrong), but this is the config that'll be in use once my buddy gets the PM I sent him. :)

And lfsserver.finalgear.com is aliased to the IP of the server. :)

The PMs are still sitting in my PM outbox, so he hasn't read them. The server's up, but it's currently an S1 server as he configured it wrong. <_<
It's currently called "SinClan Speedway" with the password "password".
