Title: Reformat of VDS
Post by: 76561198013563171 on 30 August, 2014, 11:52:33 AM
On September 1st, 6am PST the VDS will be getting a reformat with a fresh copy of WS2008. This is being done so that I can isolate sources of lag I have my theories but I cannot prove them without doing a fresh install, this will take about 2 hours.

Once I have the OS installed and the servers set up to a state of operation I will most likely post an announcement in the steam group to notify people.

*Edit*
Yes, your points and titles will be spared.

Yea linux game servers are fucking stupid to put it bluntly.

The extra amount of hassle for the small performance gain combined with the choice of game server we could erect becoming considerably smaller is not worth it.
