Setting up a free gaming server for TR regulars

Postposted on Sat Apr 16, 2011 6:57 pm

I want to setup a dedicated gaming server for TR regulars to do rounds, but I have no idea what game to do.

There are so many choices. It is all up to you guys.

game servers require a lot of bandwidth
do you already have a server or did you mean hosting games from your house?

He was hosting a very spry and playable UT3 server when that game was new. I'm pretty sure he has the bandwidth.
I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do, I do not do. But what I hate, I do.

You only need a few Mbps of upstream bandwidth to host a large gaming server. The CPU and memory overhead isn't that much either. I have a 12/4Mbps connection on hand.
