Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Server Hardware:
Processor: Pentium 4, 2.4 GHz
RAM: 1 GB


Server Hardware (as of January 17, 2009):
Processor: Pentium 4, 3.4 GHz
RAM: 3 GB

Thanks to the generosity of you, the players of Aenea, we have a new server computer running the game! The newer, dedicated machine should be noticeably faster and it won't be used by anyone else in the house for watching TV online or playing games. Smile

I've noticed a difference already, even logging in on my home network just to see if the game was showing up online. Very Happy

Thanks! And have fun!



The following players donated money towards the purchase of a dedicated computer for running the World of Aenea. Thank you!

Most excellent!

This, of course, guarantees us a lag free experience now, right? Very Happy

A lag-reduced experience. Smile If you're still getting some when facing a hundred enemies and wiping them all out at once with multiple area spells from a spell trigger while 8 other PCs are in the same area...

You will be free of lag caused by my wife watching tv shows online on the same machine. Smile And lag caused by my kids playing their little games. And lag caused by me downloading pictures off my digital camera.

Lag will also be reduced with the 42% increase in processor speed and 200% increase in RAM. Smile

**AWESOME!!!!****

This is a DREAM come true!!!

I remember when I first got here and learned of some of the issues The Amethyst Dragon faced in providing the best experience he could, and it honestly fills me with joy to see this goal has been reached!!!

Rejoice, my fellow Aeneans!!!

While many other NWN worlds fall by the wayside, we grow and improve in so many ways Smile

I am still accepting donations, since the game still uses up electricity, anti-viral software, those cans of dust removal stuff, and internet access.

I understand not everyone can contribute via money. That's why it's a voluntary donation instead of a monthly fee. Smile

Really, I would run Aenea without the donations, like I did for almost 2 years. The donations have gotten everyone a nice new server (well, it'll be nice once the new hard drive gets here and I install it) and a few less eye-rollings from my wife over spending money on a game.
