More than 84 slots for SiMPLE?

.


84 slots is a lot for BF1942 in 2021, but still, the Simple player count is currently above 80 or full, around 5-10 hours per week, and we aren’t even in the high season. Fall/winter + new covid variants may bring further server population increases.

I’ve proposed slot increases several times before, which mostly were met by negative naysayers, but fortunately, the head admin makes many right choices, and he added slots (probably doesn’t need most player input and would’ve done it anyway).

I’m aware that 84+ slots may bring too much latency and other technical issues, but I think it should be tried at least.

90/96/100/100+, whatever slots?

its a big mistake to set to 72 slots again

a part of the bf population is being punished big time by this. its often nearly impossible to get into simple in primetime

of course there could be reasons for doing it that im unaware of; technical or whatever, but if 80+ is possible without substantial issues, then it should be set. lag at 84 players was almost the same as at 72



waiting for slots to be set to 60 or lower after this post

El alamein CTF there was not enough planes.

But i know one person that loves to bail on the airfield and ammobox-spam grenades so that was the perfect setup for him i suppose.

Yeah bud, but not just on the CTF map.  There weren't enough vehicles on most maps all along,
so allowing more players w/o a vehicle increase is a detriment.  The respawn times could be
shorter also, like so many have asked for.

SiMPLE was yesterday set to 84 slots again. I'm aware that these additional slots might just be a technical test, and that 72 could be set again. There may be issues with high slot settings that I don't know of, which probably take many hours to analyze and try to sort out.

Thumbs up the head admin, it's the right choice. Some people only play a few hours per week in primetime, and the server is often full at 72. 84 will make things easier.

I still think more than 84 slots should be tried.

you once did run a 128 slot server, so you fully well know the bfsm program (server-control-program) crash with to many slots.

Re: More than 84 slots for SiMPLE?

But off course he knows,he is just being soft again here to get what he wants.
Higher scores.....to brag about...and feel good about himself;he already posted in that section after the playerslot increase...says enough.
proposal  : install hangars in all maps so 000 can go hide in them and more ammocrates near flags where he can flagspawnrape without taking the flag.

A more serious proposal ;
I usually play engineer but in several maps the expacks and mines are nerfed.....for balance and gameplay.
How about nerfing the medic heal time too for the same reason on infantry maps?
Or make it so that a medic can only heal other teammates?
Assault class should be the ones to worry about;not the medic class in infantry maps....
Seen the 'elevated skill' of some of these "medics' it should pose no problem for them to adapt as the engineer class has had to.
It would force them to hold the gun more than the medpack too;instead of running away and selfhealing .

Enjoyed some great games on Torturebox back in the day, it was mad.

There would be mass accidental team killings I expect, would need to think very carefully before chucking that nade.

Re: More than 84 slots for SiMPLE?

My game has been crashing whenever there are more than 72 players on server. Anyone have an idea of what's going on and can suggest a possible fix? Seems to be just me. This happened the last time Simple went to 84 players as well.

The only other time the game crashes for me is when I alt+tab out back to desktop.

Its just gone to 96 slots and I've started getting a freeze up and black screen approx every 15mins. It lasts for about 10 seconds and most of the time it then continues in the game OK. Once it froze completely over the space of 2 hours play.

Re: More than 84 slots for SiMPLE?

Noticed so far after the playernumber increase on the server:
"Teleporting' players ,suddenly a 'ghost" of a player appears   just a split second....      then  gone.
Desynching sounds or sounds cutting out  ; especially with plane engines and weapons.
Gamechrashes after x amount of players are online.
And off course even more tk"s for vehicles and troll tk's at spawnpoints.


Quantity over quality indeed.

classic 64
The game was created for this number of players and their "stuff".
I think, with more than 64 players, some data will be lost or displayed strangely.
