As some reported problems with their ping during a special period of the day/evening we try to report this to our hoster. For that we need detailed information.

Here a short HOW TO if you got ping problems.

#1 Come to IRC and tell about your problem (use web-chat if you got no client installed)

#2 Give your current IP to a admin (Your current IP is: Image)

#3 Windows-User Download http://winmtr.sourceforge.net/
#3 Linux-User just use mtr with this command: mtr -s 1500 -r -c 1000 -i 0.1 server-ip

#4 Let winmtr do 1000 checks (will take some time but with less we can't do anything)

#5 Mail the report to the Admin you talked in IRC

Be sure the report looks like the pic shows bellow "richtig"

That's all

A little Manual from our Hoster can be found here: http://wiki.hetzner.de/index.php/Netzwe ... an_Hetzner

For our Admins:

#1 Get the ip of the damn lagger :)

#2 Enter the admin channel

#3 etX: /!backtrace PLAYER-IP (Don't use "BC:"!!! etX stands for et1, et2 or et3.. depends on what server the player comes from)

#4 inform harlekin or ruwen and pass the received data from the player to him.

We all have this ping prob from time to time.

And sometimes some of us have ping 350 or higher (normally the ping should be 48 ingame DSL related).

But we all have small lags all the time at hirnschlag,
no matter how full the server is.

And it seems that only a few slots are lag free.

If you are lucky and got one of these slots, you are the king and hit everything.

Next day you can't hit anything.

I test my ping everytime before i go online to hirnschlag.

And if it is maybe 37 i change the route to hetzner until the ping is 29
(ingame it always shows 48 then, depends on maxpackets in etconfig).

But that doesn't mean, that i am able to aim right in the game.

I played other NoQuarter servers too some time ago, but i never experienced these little lags there.

Maybe we should change the hoster soon.
Let's collect more money and look what happens.

Other suggestions? :shock:

I am not informed for years now, but what is with Dawn Servers?
http://www.dawn-server.de/enemy-territory/
(site is in german)

Maybe they host NQ too.

They also have testservers.

We should switch only schlag to a new server and test what happens.
These two months with maybe 60 euros per month must be worth it.

And plz setup the donate function with SMS.

thx

10 years ago as we started the first rtcw servers,
it was not possible to host them in germany.

we paid 300 dollars per months in the usa.

60 euros isnt that much.

why not test it to host schlag at a gameserver.

one game, one server.

maybe the lags are gone then.

we all at schlag would be happy.
and we want to pay for it.

or not? :roll:

then we would pay 3-4 times more. at the moment we host the gameserver on a Intel® Core™ i7-920 Quad-Core and each gameserver et,et2 & et3) got it's own real core. It ain't a problem of CPU Power...
