Server settings in server.cfg for my TTT Server

I want to ask if my settings are fine. Most of the time my server is running fine with 18 players. But sometimes if you hit someone and there is blood (I think this is all client side) the server doesn’t accept this. Is this server lag or a Garry’s Mod problem? Also maybe there are better settings to improve the server =) I would like to read your suggestions

Remove fps_max you don’t need it.
both updaterate and cmdrate, if your TTT server is modified and fill of players you will struggle trying to achieve 66 tick, you can leave it there for now but you’ll struggle when its full. Just play with it. Also when you launch the server make sure -tickrate is set to 66 in the launch options. Lower CMDrate and Updaterate with your tickrate so maxupdaterate and maxcmdrate 33 = -tickrate 33

Okay so I launch the server with tickrate 66 and set maxupdaterate and maxcmdrate to 66? And if I set the server settings to tickrate 33 I would lower maxcmdrate and maxupdaterate to 33. What do I have to use for minupdaterate and mincmdrate?

Also I will remove max fps, minrate and maxrate are fine?

for 33 tick you wanna use sv_maxupdaterate 33 and sv_maxcmdrate 33

Alright that’s pretty easy, thank you

I want to try the 66 tickrate, so maxupdaterate and maxcmdrate have to be 66 too.

Minrate and maxrate are fine with 0 and 20000?

yeah that should be plenty for min and max rate

also be careful of running ttt under 66 tick, when its full it will literally run like ass

I am running this settings a long time now and if we are playing on a full server with 18 people it’s fine :slight_smile:

Alright so I don’t have to change much, I just remove the max fps setting.

I thought maybe there is a possibility to fix the problem that the server sometimes doesn’t count head shots for example, even though the client is seeing blood. But I think lower the tickrate would probably increase this problem

It varies.
Hitreg is kinda crap in Garry’s mod as it is. There isn’t really a lot you can do about it.

Alright thank you a lot for the time and the quick response =)

Imo, do not use rcon_password. I know too many friends that have been effected by the rcon exploit.

Yeah heard about that. Normally I don’t use rcon password but I am also using a nice anti cheat. Should save my password for this exploit but you never know. I will delete it again =)

anti cheat has literally no effect on that exploit

It is a dll exploit apparently. #cake fix that.

That exploit will be fixed in the next gmod update whenever it finally comes out
