I know several of the folks who stop by regularly are fellow gamers so I thought I’d take a moment to let you guys know that in the next day or so I’ll be launching a dedicated server for the PC version of Call of Duty 2. My boss is letting me realize a long-time dream of running my own server which I’ve mainly wanted to do so I could get rid of any cheaters that show up. It’s a pure server with no mods as of yet initially set to run TDM, but I’ll be allowing voting to change maps and game type.
The box I’ll be using is an old Dell Precision 420 with dual PIII 1GHz processors and 1GB of RAM and I have no idea how adequate that is for the job at hand, but the consensus is that it should be OK. Don’t know yet if I’ll have to limit availability to after-hours or not or how many players I’ll be able to support at once, but I should find that out later today. I’m going to need some help making sure it’s stable over the next couple of days so if you’re interested in trying it out and happen to own CoD2 then .
