You can try with following values:

MinBandwidth= 10000000

MaxBandwidth= 20000000

MaxMsgSend = 512

MaxSizeGuaranteed = 256

MaxSizeNonguaranteed = 128

Thats something for begin with. But you may need tweak those values to get best results depending on how many ppl gonna be on the server.

Also you may wanna check out wiki for more detailed description.


heres a part of it:


Maximum number of messages that can be sent in one simulation cycle.

Increasing this value can decrease lag on high upload bandwidth servers.

Default: 128


Maximum size of guaranteed packet in bytes (without headers). Small messages

are packed to larger frames. Guaranteed messages are used for non-repetitive

events like shooting.

Default: 512


Maximum size of non-guaranteed packet in bytes (without headers).

Non-guaranteed messages are used for repetitive updates like soldier or

vehicle position. Increasing this value may improve bandwidth requirement,

but it may increase lag.

Default: 256


Bandwidth the server is guaranteed to have (in bps). This value helps server

to estimate bandwidth available. Increasing it to too optimistic values can

increase lag and CPU load, as too many messages will be sent but discarded.

Default: 131072


Bandwidth the server is guaranteed to never have. This value helps the server

to estimate bandwidth available.


Minimal error to send updates across network. Using a smaller value can make

units observed by binoculars or sniper rifle to move smoother.

Default: 0.01


Users with custom face or custom sound larger than this size are kicked when

trying to connect.
