Low fps on my server



  • Hello! I want to report the issue. Sometimes players complain about low fps when playing on my server. While they have a ping of 8-30 ms. I don’t know what to do with this.

    My server is running on:
    Linux Debian Jessie 8 64-bit (Native, not WINE)
    Intel Celeron G1620
    4 GB RAM DDR3
    18 slots (FFA)

    Also I tested on the same hardware under Windows. On Windows fps is not causing the problem. But there is a problem with losing connection with Steam servers (Server is not visible in the server browser after a while).

    This hardware is suitable for 64 players. I checked on Windows.

    P.S. Sorry for my bad English. It’s not my native language.



  • 64-player servers tend to make everyone’s FPS drop when the server is full.

    FPS issues are usually client-side, not server-side, and is usually either their own system specs limiting, or sometimes the current map (Not all maps are optimized as well as some of the others).

    How many players are in the server when they complain?
    Which maps are they complaining about?
    What are their system specs?
    Do they get similar FPS issues on other servers?



  • @Reithur:

    ~16-18

    @Reithur:

    Which maps are they complaining about?

    On all the maps.

    When it happened again, I tried to change map several times. Players still continued to complain of low fps. I went on the server and I also had low fps. On other servers this is not observed.

    @Reithur:

    What are their system specs?
    Do they get similar FPS issues on other servers?

    I don’t know. They tell me that on other servers they have no such problem. I also don’t see any problems with fps on other servers. 60 fps on maximum graphics settings.

    My system specs:
    Windows 10 Pro x64
    Intel Core i5-2400
    8 GB RAM DDR3 1333 Mhz (2x4096)
    GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 760 2 GB RAM
    The game runs from SSD Plextor M5Pro 128 GB



  • Thanks for the info. I’ll see if I can get some feedback for you.
