I modified the server configuration on Aviano to host the maximum number of driver possible: 26! 24 will have a cozy and confortable garage, and 2 (drivers 25 and 26) will have outside in the middle of the pit (like in Monaco).
Is this reasonable? who knows! I've tried to do some estimation of the required bandwidth starting from the values on the nK manual, and trying guess the next values accordingly. I don't know how the netcode is implemented, so i tried to fit some curves that matched the given values.
I've a pessimistic prediction (done manually) and a quadratic equation (10*N^2).
As I told you it's almost like guessing...but at least give us some hope that this could work!
We aim to a grid of 20 drivers that according to the pessimistic estimation would need 4500 Kbits/s that is the 50% of the available server upstream bandwidth.
Then we can try to go up or down trying to reach the server limit that will guarantee a lag free race.
Will this work? Will we have huge lag? will we able to connect to the server with more than 15 drivers on track? will nKPro explode? I really don't know, but at least it's worth a try!
so...we need you to help us in this crazy experiment! Let's hope for the best!
Wednesday 22 July 21:30.
Server will be up to do some test before and after, so feel free to join even before.
F2000 Aviano, no full mode.
Please it's really important that all clients are using proper connections.
