View Full Version : Bandwidth question
08-23-2003, 02:12 PM
ok i know the avg bandwidth per player is 3.5-4KB/s....what about bots....i know that they are part of the server, but if you have more bots in a server will it cause the server to use more bandwidth becuase of the required info about each one having to be sent out to each client?

Speaking of bandwidth, what other settings affect bandwidth? For example, does gamespeed affect it?

Bots do not add to bandwidth... Rather, using alot of bots do use more cpu overhead.
I'm not sure about gamespeed affecting bandwidth since I haven't tried anything above 100. But higher tickrates do increase bandwidth slightly.

Um, I stand corrected. If you're running the invasion mod and have tons of bots, more bandwidth will be used per player. Well that's what Epic stated on their mailing list ;P

ok thanks....so if like 3-4 more bots in my server it wont completely kill my bandwidth all together.....well actually it might now that i think of it.....in ut the ping is now figured from the time it takes to get to the server....go through the processor.....and back to the client....so if i have more bots in my server....and they use more cpu overhead then that means they'll lag the server to a small extent...depending on my setup......
so in other words dont keep more than 3 bots...kk.....thanks for the info...lol
