Check the usage of each specific core since Gmod is single core only. You want stronger cores, not more.

Hello, this is my monitor with 60 players:

He is one core, he have a solution for dispatch performances of the server.

Uhh sure…

It’s your cpu cores tho

Yes you can add me skype or steam ?
You can see one core it’s used but other core he’s not used by server… :confused:

Garry’s Mod servers can only use 1 core.

What is your server’s tickrate?

I don’t know what put in tickrate with my config, you can explain me ?

[editline]20th February 2015[/editline]

tickrate 128

Change that to 33.

128 isn’t a valid tickrate; the highest it should ever be is 66, realistically 33.

Thanks for all reply! I go test that and I say if it’s work!

SOLVED! with tickrate 16!
Best regard Percroy!

Again THANKS YOU!

Eh, tickrate 16 is going to cause major issues with cars and some weapons.

I have tested with tickrate 33 and with 40 player I have rollback etc… But with tickrate 16 no rollback but you’r reason I have a little lag on the car…

So 16 or 33 ><

16 is the bare minimum, you’ll get semi stuttery movement, poor hit detection, and laggy cars.

33 is the lowest I would recommend.

We cant choose an alternativ tickrate ??

The only limitation I am aware of is that the tickrate must be greater than 10.

So I can test with tickrate between 16 to 33 ans find a better? ! Nice !

How has nobody mentioned this … take rcon password out of your config.

And where i take him? ?

Try a casual outing or sports event.

Maybe later, not today
