Report article RSS Feed Garry's Mod update allows 128-player servers

The new player limit was hit just hours after its arrival in a truly epic deathrun match. Video inside!

Posted by Varsity on Jul 28th, 2009

Sassilization Deathrun (connect now) became the first Source server to host 128 simultaneous players last night. The historic event was recorded in all its laggy glory:


The new player limit is intended for Gmod Tower, in which players are scattered over separate floors and, assuming the server has enough system resources, the lag seen above isn't an issue.

(Source's hard upper limit is 255 players...any coders out there ready for a challenge?)

The video is far too long. Skip to 7:10 for the best part I've found in it yet. :)

That's most definately going to be a complete bitch to optimize.

I love how used the immense player limit to it's full potential- a full fledged clusterfuck.
