DOOM 3 Portal game server

Post by Paul » Sat Jul 17, 2004 17:40

We've gotta game server thanks to the guys at ukgamer.com.

At the moment it looks like 1 public and 1 private, it is based in the UK. I had Wester ping and it looks like 150ms latency... May be a bit much for some of you guys. I'll see what I can do to get a US and may be Australian.

Hopefully it will be up and running the day DOOM 3 comes out.

Cool, the public server should hold up to about 4 players right? We'd have to figure out who would join and who wouldn't then.

Yes, more details will be worked out when we can figure out how heavy DOOM 3 will be on a server.

Lol, if that was Wester's ping, mine would have to be what, 430000?

:lol:

It's really good, though, that you got a server secured Paul. Doom3portal has everything :P

Apart from a link on doom3.com :(

Oh well see our servers when you hit the show servers list in doom 3 is worth far more then that.

I'd estimate your ping to be... 300 :wink: perfectly playable IMO. Hell I used to put up with pings like that playing Giants and stuff.

:lol:

In serious terms, if your ping was 43000, you'd be disconnected.

If your ping is 999 or above the multiplayer game's network data packet transfer would just stop dead.

You need to get a mod that lets you have more than 4 people. I saw a bunch of servers with 12/12 people on the first day DooM 3 came out in the US :shock:

Yup, people have found out how to hack DooM 3(probably through the config file or something) so you can play in MP with up to 16 players. Joy, that's bound to completely ruin the tension. :roll:

Just an update...

Their will be 1 public server (until I can beg for some more) and 1 private server - both will be 4 clients each - sorry I'm not doing anymore it wrecks the gameplay - if you want 16 odd players go play Quake 3.

The server should be delivered either Tuesday or Wednesday and it should be setup soon after. Of course if it gets delivered on time.

Just an updated...

Server has a new map version on the list... So you'll need the latest patch and the 3 maps listed at http://www.doom3portal.com/site/servers.php
