High Server CPU usage - main.exe

Post by calgary-server2 » Tue Oct 09, 2007 1:45 pm

Hi guys.

I have noticed high cpu server usage on the file \"main.exe\" With no users, it is idling at 50% on a dual-core CPU. Any suggestions to bring this level down?

Thanks for everyone's time.

Apply a reasonable framecap to your descent3 server startup command line variables, like 100-250 and it should improve.

Heck, framecap of 999 on my old PIII brings it down to under 1%.

A framecap of 0 will cause the server to eat all CPU time allocated to it (100%). Like Foil said, cap it to 999.
