Alright, we are almost ready to rock with the dedicated server!!!
The server (my own old Gateway PC) will be running a dedicated Sauerbraten server 24/7 (WITH THE EXCEPTION OF MAINTENANCE AND SERVICE PACK 3/UPDATE INSTALLATION) from now on. Use Hamachi to connect (the Hamachi name will be something like BrandonSauerServer or something, so you can tell the difference from it and me).
For anyone curious about the technical details of what the box has in it...
Intel Pentium 4 1.6GHz CPU (don't remember core name atm, but it was the original P4 core)
768MB DDR RAM (unknown speed)
Western Digital 120GB HD @ 7,200RPMs
ATI Radeon X1650 Pro AGP 8x 512MB
Windows XP SP2 (soon to be SP3) w/ all updates
I keep nothing but LogMeIn running on the box, so that if I need to I can access it remotely (if I am at school or something) to work on it. Nothing sits in the tray, and a whole 5 user processes run on it (3 graphics card, explorer, and something else from Windows that I can't remember atm). Against all odds and hardware limits, it is VERY fast, and has taken more than its share of beatings from the family over its lifespan. Do not underestimate this thing as a "server".
I will have the server up and running in approximately an hour. It may take longer though- USB install via USB 1.1 isn't what I would call "speedy".
P.S.: I have no issues with people taking Master status of the server, however I don't want anyone abusing their power. Also, no one
may take administrator status of the server except me (that is assuming you are able to, I don't know how secure the game engine is- supposedly only the localhost can become an admin, but...). I am doing this voluntarily. Just have fun and play nice.
EDIT: I have added an administrator password as well as a server description (DonationCoder), and Hamachi has been installed. The server will be up in about 5 minutes. Come and join the fun!
