  • Let's face it, though, how many people use Linux for gaming anyway?

    EDIT: Not to bash Linux, of course. It's probably better than what Windows has become lately, just thinking of the limited game library.

  • In that case, I'd assume I misinterpreted your suggestion.

  • Yeah I didn't mean play the game on Linux (though I think that should be possible) but I meant we should be able to host server on Linux. So far REAKKTOR's stance on this is not very good.

    Why we should be able to host servers on Linux:

    - The majority of dedicated servers in the world are Linux. It's more stable, uses less memory and is more secure.
    - Windows license costs a lot of extra money. e.g a cheap dedi which can run a Toxikk server would be around 20 euros, adding a license on top of it would be another 20-50 euros which a lot of people aren't willing to pay, it turns a lot of people away from running a server. I know for one I'm not hosting one just because of this, else I'd host a few.

  • That's a bit exaggerated.
    Hosteurope.de sells Windows and Linux VPS for the same price now.
    I pay €16,99 for a 4GB/2vCore Win 2012 server, which can run 4 Toxikk servers.
    For €29,99 you get 8GB/4vCore, which should be good for at least 10 servers.

    At contabo.de/contabo.com you can get 6GB/2vCore Win 2008R2 server for €13,99
    For 30,98 you get 30GB/6vCore there. Good enough for 20 servers.

    Toxikk/UE3 is quite a resource hog. ~500MB and 20% cpu per instance (when idle!) isn't something you just install and run on most of the existing Linux droplets. If you pay for CPU usage, then this is going to be expensive!

  • Those are VPS though, how is the CPU on those? I can't imagine they're very good.

    And that is still expensive, 17 euros just for 4 servers without being able to host anything else isn't good at all. In my opinion at least. I doubt those vCores can handle it.

  • I had an old VPS before, which was indeed totally underpowered for toxikk.
    My current hosteurope.de Virtual Server Advanced runs 4 instances without any trouble.
    I installed my ServerFPS mutator and verified that all 4 instances run at 60 ticks/second without a hitch.
    I have also Plesk, IIS, mysql, a name server and other stuff running on that machine, otherwise i could add a 5th toxikk server.

    The real question is if UE3 supports Linux for dedicated servers. Google results don't look promising.

  • What if all 4 servers are filled with players though?

  • tl;dr it is possible with wine or virtual machines

    As I stated in another thread. I successfully ran the server under wine already. I know it is quite a hassle to set it up, and you need to pull in a lot of dependencies but it works. Another suggestion is to run a headless virtual machine on a linux host. I am in favour of a linux solution, the issue is, that epic themselves did not invest much time in the unreal engine 3 on linux, because they could not really solve the issues with dependencies.
