It also occurred to me that the few times I joined NKpro servers, the ping was really high and the gameplay suffered a lot with lag and other problems. So I figure that ideally we would want to set up our own server for the US West coast at least for the nights we would eventually meet. However, I know nothing about it. I am knowledgable about regular web servers and I actually lease a webserver in Texas running Apache, but I figure that NKpro won;t be able to run on it.
Anyway, looks like I can host races from my own PC from inside NKpro. I also downloaded an EXE that is supposed to be a NKpro server but other than that I don;t know how to go about it or even if it would be better to use the RS server instead.
Can anyone give me a simple idea of what is involved and what the requirements are? Can I host races on my PC and also race at the same time? Or should I install NK on another PC on the same network?
My work/play PC is very powerful (Intel i7 980x, 6GB DDR3 ram, liquid cooled, 2 460x nVidia in SLI, etc.) my other PCs are not so bad either, I have a quad core (my old work machine) intel and it was top of the line three years ago.
Anyway, I'd appreciate help and suggestions on how to go about hosting a server for us on the west coast time zone. Any suggestion is welcome.
