    looking to start a server for CS and OR ut2004 when I get it and I'm wondering what the minimum requirements are for this. Also what kind of internet upload speeds do I need for this as well...any help would be appreciated and this is not a fact that I will be setting it up I just want to see if it's possible.

    On Broadband you're unlikely to be able to support more than 12 players because unless you have a really good upload speed. I've tried playing on a home server (friend's) and we experienced quite a lot of lag.
     
  4. You can safely say you need 12kb/s upload per player.

    awesome...my isp just went up to 3MBps d/l so I have to check the u/l so then I can set one up...12 is perfect for me since I don't like huge servers anyway. It's all dependent on when I build my new rig then I can use my old one as a server.

    They are stingy. UK ISP give at least 256KB/s on a 512 connection.
