    Why are most NK servers are set at 15 users?

    Unfortunately the netcode of nK doesn't allow more.
    And his name is Giancarlo, by the way. Very Happy

    it's not about the bandwidth, just the way it's coded. It was a decision a the beginning of the core project. Kunos said that changing it to add more slots wouldn't be trivial, because would mean to revise quite a lot of code.

    in any case with the numbers we have in nk, 15 is a good number to have balanced groups.
    furthermore, more slots = more bandwidth, so more strict requirements for servers and clients.

    Thanks again Andrea. The manual does say 15 but the server reports stats for 20 clients and doesn't throw an error with the config file set to >15, hence my slight confusion. I'll be making available a "vulture racing" server (or two) which sit at the end of a 100/100Mbs link. They will probably end up evenings and weekends only but if they can be of assistance to Radiator Springs in any way, let me know.

    Razz I find it confusing too sometimes, due to the similar avatars Smile I was wondering why there's 16 slots in the nkrefs? Think I may have asked this before (but can't remember the answer... if there was one Very Happy). It's probably Kunos' private parking space so that he can always access a server... in the unlikely event it's full Wink
