Post by claws01 » Wed Mar 15, 2017 6:08 pm

Do NFO plan to use the 64 bits exe when its out ?
so i can prepare myself to switch to full machine in case it don't happen .

server client
32-bit Windows + 32-bit game: 2047
64-bit Windows + 32-bit game: 3071
64-bit Windows + 64-bit game: (physical memory*4)/5

We'll use whatever they require us to use. If they offer both, then we will investigate which is the better option. The 32-bit version might be necessary for compatibility reasons or may offer higher performance in that case.

The current version of the game requires several GB of memory.

I really hope we can just choose between both. Having a 64 bit server would be a huge boon and most mods already have their 64bit versions out. (ACE, CBA, TFAR, Etc etc.)

We will add the option for both if we can.

I don't expect to see a significant improvement over the new 3 GB x86 version as it currently stands. The x86 version may actually run a bit faster, due to smaller code leading to more efficient caching.

We added this option on the "Server control" page. If you run into any trouble with it, please let us know.
