Just an update for anyone who's missed it.
Has had their first successfull tentative stress test of their beta core3 server.
Test server specs
1.6 Core2 Duo/2 GB ram/100 mbit line
For 1 machine running the whole galaxy, all planets, they were able to get 278ppl on in just the dant mo alone,
Now that is not the limit thats only how many people had the time avalable to log into the test server. sadly i was in class so i missed the test as did many, so they are having another stability test to see if they can get more players online.
in order to try get their maximum numbers im posting the next test time here which is easily viewable from their website.
5:30PM EST. THIS FRIDAY FEBRUARY 23RD
Please i do remind you to read the updates section and FAQ before posting or asking questions, yes i know its tedious but there are some less that upstanding ppl who play and some wont be as eager to help newbies to the emu.
DONT PM THE DEVS
they will be extreamly busy analyzing the server and code to make sure they learn as much as they can from the stress tests.
their IRC has a limit of 500 users but they will post updates on the forum's as to server status.
Swgemu irc channels
if you have Irc installed just paste the address into your web browser, if you dont have irc google it and choose any client u like.
Links to forum pages that will help you set up for the test
Dont ask for the IP, It is written in the MOTD (Message of the Day) for the #Test Channel at swgemu's Irc.
Server status is also in the MOTD.
Good luck and i hope to see many of you there and online for the test.
Just a word of caution
There are many users in the irc who have short tempers and/or are not exactly friendly to new ppl, if someone flames you for being a "nubb, or newb" PLEASE just shrug them off no matter how much of an ass they are, flame wars don't help the testing process, and often leave newcomers with a bad taste of the emu team. the dev's are nice people and the forums are modded by community members and not dev's , this way the devs can focus their time on coding the emu so its not the devs fault if some smacktard flames you for being new, some ppl are just looking for a fight.
