Moving to the Netherlands

New year, new server. smile

SiMPLE is moving BF1942 servers to a new dedicated server in Naaldwijk, the Netherlands. Server IP address is 194.88.105.25.

It is a more powerful server and most players will have a lower ping to the server.

So, what should you do?

Update your server list and look for *NEW* SiMPLE servers. After, add them to your favorites, if you wish, and delete the old ones. Join *NEW* SiMPLE servers and that's it.

You can also use these hostnames to connect, they will always resolve to the server IP address:

  • bf1942.team-simple.org

  • play.team-simple.org

What is your take on the new server in the Netherlands?

  1. Better
  2. Meh
  3. Worse

Re: Moving to the Netherlands

well .. although the netherlands is closer than paris i have a worse ping .. i don't like a lot of things either .. a lot is not in my game as I imagine it either .. but i'm working on it .. that is also hard and time-consuming .. but it is progressing slowly .. that's it goldie .. I am sure that you are one of the best on the rtr / sw server ... the bf1942 server is just another level .. I can also proudly say that we probably have the most experienced and best players on the server ... giving up now would be fatal .. you can only learn from the best .. I've also offered you to practice with me several times .. so pull yourself together and don't cry around here big_smile .. and the player you mentioned earlier is Luigi/Maximus .. a german pro ...

see you in 1942 mate smile

The connection quality to the server is much much better now than it was before on the French host.

Re: Moving to the Netherlands

Apperantly internet is extra strained at the moment.

The announcement followed appeals from EU officials for Netflix and individual users to ditch high definition video to prevent the internet from breaking. With so many countries on forced lockdowns to fight the spread of the virus, hundreds of millions working from home and even more children out of school, the officials were concerned about the huge strain on the internet.

Re: Moving to the Netherlands

I don't notice any difference but my ping has been crap since we had the fires here at Xmas/ New Year. Sometimes it's just impossible to play especially if there are a few in the server. Oh well, C'est la vie.

Wrong. Simple servers are located in Netherlands, not in UK. Do you even know what "latency" is?

Try determining your ping like this.

Dude, I was posting in response to bud's post about the internet being strained because of the lockdowns.
Nothing to do with my connection to the server.

New server indeed runs much better than last one, especially thanks to better specs, although not big change for me, still having ugly and full of lags ADSL internet neutral Luckily I don't have packet loss... at least that's what it looks like.

Just a lill update from the north. Server feels nice and smooth with 50-60+ players. Ping looks steady and overall the server doesnt seemed stressed or bogged down in any way.

Re: Moving to the Netherlands

I used to underestimate the load generated by an increased number of pco. Maps with lots of networked information are much laggier than ones with little.
Consequently Battle of Britain and Midway are a mess on simple because of 10 planes on each side, ships + boats and several land vehicles...

it even depends on how many are playing, as for me, above 40 is already like 40% regs for me while below that number is technically better value and more hits.....i think i said it before too....
