    So the server I normally play on is shutting down very soon and I was thinking what the hell, might as well put one up.

    Now, what would OT recommend for a setup? Any help is appreciated as I have never ran or touched a server before :mamoru: I just got word of this today so I will be doing some reading prior to the attempt.

    Thanks in advance :coolugh:

    actually if thats dedicated just to the server, it wouldn't be as bad as you think. Not really low ping, but 12 people under 150 is plausable, and 150 ping isn't that bad. Steam has all the specs you need to run a server on their site, its not a hard thing to do at all.

    Well it's intended for local use so It will be fine.

    Current ping is ~20-50 depending on server.
