Where can I find a client .exe for 1.98.146303  x64?

The oldest one I found is for 146344.

I think 303 was pre-hotfix, these aren't kept.

Why do you want that specific one?

VERY sure there should be a 64bit beserver.so file somewhere, can't check where now, but I know that it definitely works.

@Dedmen What's the default value for the "steamProtocolMaxDataSize" setting?

The values written in the wiki's server.cfg documentation are the default values. The default is 1024.

Is there any limitation as to how many cores or memory a 64-bit linux dedicated server can run?
We plan to use ubuntu 2004 in virtual server

With the x64 build, no to both. But more cores only give diminishing returns, but you can always run one or two Headless Clients instead.

We have the possibility to choose one of these two options: Ten virtual CPU cores, 10240 MB of RAM or Eight virtual CPU cores, 8192 MB of RAM.

 

We will do cooperative games with between 40 and 60 players normally. Maximum of up to 100 players per game at times. Without Zeus to put enemies.

 

Could you recommend a hardware configuration?

 

Thanks in advance

The CPU with higher IPC/Frequency will be better.

@VulturARG from what i experienced something like a i7 6700/k or R5 2400 could do the job pretty well, mostly it depends on what your mission is doing in the background (scripts mods etc).

BUT and here comes the biggest problem you guys might encounter, virtual cores are not the same as physical cores in terms of RAW performance, somtimes it can get worse if some other user on the same physical computer does some heavy stuff (it depends on how the sheduler of the VM-Host is working). In general i figured out its in the long term easier AND cheaper to get some good dedicated server and set it up on your own (yes i know that takes some time, but its really worth as its not at all comparable to what you can get from some gamehosters, like nitrado, for the same price, regardless of the actual game running)

 

To reference the current server i manage, is a 60Player PVP one, its a intel i7 4790k (4GHz) with 30GB of RAM in a VM (but the only VM on that PC, mostly for some extra features) we run 2 servers with each getting 2 physical and 2 logical cores and additionally some (like 5 or 6) tools around that for management and logging. The mission and configs are pretty optimized and almost no AI. We get (thx to some really nice tutorials and documentations from dedmen) about 80-100FPS with one server full.

If you plan on having a lot of AI, definetly use Headless Clients, my last test on that is  2or 3 years ago, Liberation with 1 Server and 3 HC on a i7 6700k with 64GB RAM, was at around 1500 AI (most in groups) at stable 50fps

Thanks for answering me. We are going to hire a dedicated server at NFO servers. We have one of 6 cores and 6 gb with windows and we want to go to 10 cores and 10 gb ram with Debian.
We plan to use headless clients. Do you have any links to the documentation you mention from dedmen?

hi dedmen,

 

it seems the google drive folder for v09 1.98 is missing some version files compared to dropbox version... 10 files vs 13 files.

Due to "logistical issues" we've not yet been able to update Profiling Branch to 2.00. We're trying to resolve this with Steam and update as soon as we have a solution.

@Perat OFP im not sure what yoou actually mean (probably lost in translation). The limitFPS Parameter is a startparameter for the server it self, so the server owner needs to set that, the client cant and dont need to do anything else
