View Full Version : Suitable Maxrate for Cable?

03-10-2004, 08:19 PM
Just started playing with some buddies, max of four people on the server. When we were playing normal JKA (not dedicated, I just "created" a game) had no issues with lag. I installed JAplus because I wanted to have the jump kicks and health/shield refresh on duels. Problem I'm seeing is frequently I have moments of heavy lag for the guys playing , but it comes and goes. Their ping will skyrocket up to 500+ for a minute or 2 and then drop back down to the normal 50 or less. I'm assuming that since this started once I installed JAplus that it has to be a server setting.

The server.cfg in my japlus folder lists Maxrate at 7000. I can find no reference to what the normal server setting is or what would be ideal for a standard road runner cable (384 up 2000 down). I dropped it down to 5000 but haven't had a chance to test it. Figuired I'd ask in the meantime.

Appreciate any input

well maxrate depends upon the amount of players, so with 5 people it should be between 5-6,000

384000 = sv_maxclients X sv_maxrate X 8

sv_maxclients 12 sv_maxrate 4000
sv_maxclients 10 sv_maxrate 4800
sv_maxclients 8 sv_maxrate 6000
sv_maxclients 6 sv_maxrate 8000
sv_maxclients 4 sv maxrate 12000
