New Server Hardware
State of the Art, new 8th generation Intel® Core™ i7+8700 Processor (12M Cache, up to 4.60 GHz) includes Intel® Optane™ Memory Launched 02´18 6 4.60 GHz 3.20 GHz 12 MB SmartCache - noting 6X faster loading time and greatly increased battle processing
 
I got a great, nearly half price, deal at Cosco for $900.00.  Please note - running the dedicated NWN server is all this machine does.  No one plays on it.  No one uses it for any other purpose.
 
DDR 4 16 GB
2 TB HD
Yes, it has a graphics card that can play games, but that is unimportant for the dedicated server.

We are happy to report far better game play and multi player experience.
 
Malishara and I have - over the last couple of weeks got this new system up to snuff.
 
I noted a greatly improved experience with a group of players - AOE spells and all.   As always, even the best of machines can overload with many spawns, especially spawns all casting AOE spells.

The old server would not auto reload when Microsoft Windows 10 decided to update and does restarts.

We can restart the NWN server remotly if that happens ONLY if the machine is up and running - something the old machine refused to do but the new machine does as it should.

Other advantages - 6 times faster loading of the NWN server (from 6 minutes + to 1 minute load time).

As stated above - more memory, faster processor, larger hard drive.

The end result - all is better - now with the upcoming October 4th internet speed upgrade to 25 up and 5 down - this should really help - finally - we are working on finding a way to move from WiFi to cable for the server.  Years ago it was cable but the modem location is moved - need to work out a new solution for that.
