    guys can you list where you are and what connection you have and what specs you'll be running.

    me:

    Core2 at 2.5GHz, 1GB RAM, X800 GTO (crap)

    200k/b down / 30k/b up (also crap)

    UK, London area (not crap)

    Whoever has the fastet PC + upload speeds should host the server. With four of us playing we will need someone with a 1mb upload speed or there abouts.

    I just tested Serious Sam on Vista Ultimate 64 bit. If you set the affinity to cpu 0, there's no problems with lag. Not to me at least. Runs smoothly.

    And Jameson, you're right about the mouse sensitivity. It's mad. Lol

    lol my mouse is down to about 12% on the ingame software, i could just lower the cpi on my mouse but its so much hassle.

    my specs could be the rubbish pc on the left, or if i have time on friday my new rig
    new rig final plans

    those are its specs, and my line jumps between around 4 and 5mb downstream, and 400 and 500 kb upstream. can you host and play at the same time? if im on my new rig id be happy to test its limits by hosting.

    EDIT: the rig has 4gb of that RAM not 2,and the cpu is the AMD athlon X2 6400 black. i think the rest of the things are correct (other than fans and disk drives but they dont matter)

    it's looking like 12mmchillfactor should host the server initially, and then we all join and see if it's ok. With four of us on that rig plus the fast net connection it should be perfect.

    If anyone else wants to join us this saturday, please let us know

    and yes, you can host the server and play at the same time, and because its old, a typical rig won't even feel the difference. What really matters here is a good upload speed and a typical fast PC, and i don't have either!

    I have 2 different internet connections at home.

    I can set a dedicated server up on my 3G connection ? it's 700kb/s down and 350kb/s up.

    Stats on the PC i would be using as a server are:

    P4 @ 3.6 ghz
    2 gb 533mhz RAM
    GeForce 6800

    But, if the PC specs should be better than that, I'll host it on my "normal" rig

    that should be more than enough for a server.

    Just to make sure, that 350kb/s, are we talking 350k sec, or just around 40k a sec? I think with 4 players we really need 1mb (100k) up connection for it not to lag.

    i'm still in for this, i would be happy with to give it a g tonight at around 10gmt maybe?

    i've tried hosting a server for four, and it lags once the forth joins, so i'm out for hosting. I reckon a 512k upload connection will be enough for just us four.
