Hello, Ive had to run game servers on bad setups before. So I decided to find out the minimum requirements for SRCDS Garry’s Mod. I will be running a 5 Slot server, so you can multiply that easily.
Note I will be using Windows 2000 Professional.
192MB Ram (You cant run SRCDS OrangeBox without a minimum of 128mb of ram available or you will get a catastrophic failure error)
700MHZ CPU (In this case I was using a Intel Celeron 700mhz)
0.49kb per second upload speed(Ive heard it will go up to 6 or 7 slots before lagging ans spiking everyone’s ping to 999)
If you have atleast that you should be able to run a medium-fast Garry’s Mod dedicated server.
Remember not to have to many CPU intensive plugins or addons(Like Nukes or SOME admin plugins and gamemodes) The machine runs just fine on gm_construct! So do yourself a favor and recycle that old clunker in your closet and set it up as a server.
I hope this helps someone far out in cyberspace!
