Multiplayer - Dedicated server test

Post » Sat Aug 05, 2017 11:55 pm

I would like to get some tips from people that have successfully hosted dedicated servers for multiplayer C2/C3 games.

Are you using a VPS (windows/linux?)
What is a good server configuration?
Does hosting work better using exported NWJS app?
Other tips?

Example:
I have setup a dedicated server as a test for a multiplayer tank game. It didn't seem to do that great because CPU kept getting maxed out. Finally I noticed that I could host the game with Chrome minimized, and that made a drastic difference in CPU usage. I am guessing that the game does not render anything when minimized, which results in sort of simulated "headless" mode.

You can try my simple test game (while it is alive) at http://www.damonapps.com/tankarena
