Title: might be able to host a semi-dedicated CQ server
Post by: TheMasterOfBattle on March 07, 2010, 05:09:30 PM
Note on poll, first select either yes or no, then please select one of the when are you available options.

Well, as you guys know I'm getting a new computer tomorrow.  Which leave me with my old computer which I would still use for things, more like a desktop until I get a real replacement desktop which I at least intend on doing this summer.  However, I would be able to use my old notebook as a server.  If you guys tell me what I will need, updated versions of things, good WADs.  I might be able to host as soon as Saturday.  I would probably run it as maybe a Saturday only server and maybe sometimes the full weekend or run by request.  I don't care that much about the notebook anymore anyway, warrenty has expired and it is sorta falling apart anyways.

Come summer time though I may try to run it not 24/7 most likely, but at least while I'm awake.  However, most likely I wouldn't be able to change the WADs as I would have to be there and I intend to work over the summer, so maybe I might make a schedule of WADs to be played.

If there isn't enough support for this though I won't bother getting stuff up until the summer.  Depending on the votes.

Please be honest as I don't want to have to download things for nothing.  I'll run the server if there are enough yes answers as well as enough that can play consistently.  I'm sure some of you would want me to host all the time, but I'm not going to host so 2 or 3 people will ever be on, you really need at least 4 and more is preferable.

Comments?

I votes.

It'd be a waste of resources to do it during school time, not to mention that alot of us (me semi included XD) don't want to come home on the weekends and crash on the computer.

I MIGHT get some game-time in there on Saturdays. I'm kinda undecided.

Seems like what I might have to do is a weekly poll, and if enough people will be there on a given Saturday or some other day will determine whether I host a server.

Hey mob, you need a thread to announce when you're going to be on.  And if it fits into my schedule, I'd be happy to jump on. :)

Yeah, just post it in Multiplayer Anyone? (that was the main topic where we posted that kind of stuff) and I'll be happy to post it on the news ticker if I see it in time.

might work, I was thinking a weekly poll would be more effective though.

I meant for mob. If you're doing weekly servers, I think a poll would be suitable.

Nono, I just host a match whenever some1 wants to get on. I usually have stuff on the weekends to do so me doing a routine hosting service would be hard.

No No NO!

FOR TMOB, HE SHOULD POST A WEEKLY POLL WHETHER WE WANT TO HAVE A WEEKEND SERVER OR NOT.

FOR MOB, JUST TELL ME WHEN YOU'RE HOSTING IN THE MULTIPLAYER ANYONE THREAD AND I'LL PUT IT ON THE TICKER.
