Only thing about the anti-hack patches is it limits the number of people who can play. Not everyone who joins realizes where to get the patch and how to use it. Plus it rules out the option of using mods in your dedicated server.
I prefer Kicker Helper, because it effectively stops cheaters, but doesn't require any extra cogs to be running.
Still, whatever works for you...
Those servers should be posted on JediBoard, that would mean Qtracker would pick them up and more people could join. Just an idea.
Nowadays what I do is post my game in Gamespy arcade and on JediBoard, then I launch from the zone.. so I get maximum exposure... and since people know the IP from JediBoard, they can join anytime, people can join from Gamespy arcade, and I can fill up at the Zone. ; )
