A strong cpu and a bunch of fast and big RAM memory-bars should be able to handle the server smoothly.
Since you´re hosting a dedicated server and the server has to create its own FPS per calculation you dont need a GPU that strong like it is required to actually play the game.

Next time please post such questions in the "Help & Support"-department of the "Rome"-forum.
Thank you!

May I also suggest, if you are hosting a server, you may administer it using:

Also, the minimum requirements (in my opinion) would be:
    A Dual-Core CPU
    4GB Ram (although the server uses around 270-300MB on idle)
    ATI HD 4000 Series or a nVidia equivalent (the more the better)

Happy Hosting!

Thanks,
Imposter

That's an overkill Imposter. With 20 players my server uses 250-300MB of ram and about 700MHz of CPU.

i agree with you cactus, actually im running the server and the client in the same machine, as if it was an application with the lan service included, this server is really thin and doesnt require so much ram or processor

I setup a server, wich ran preety fine straight away.
However, when trying game server administration, I just bumped on all attempts.
While trying to put commands on the console, I just hear a windows "beep", and the command doesn't get accepted (tried some commands that are part of "startup.txt", just for some testing). Stuff such as "vars.hardCore false".
Also tried setting up b3, but b3 closes with an error like this (translation):

Code: Select all

INFO   "STDOUT 'Error: [Errno 10061] No connection could be stablished since the destination computer has actively refuse them'"
DEBUG   'closing FrostbiteConnection socket'
BOT       'Shutting down...'

So, is the server supposed to accept commands by now?
(tried with both r30 and r32)

EDIT: "netsh winsock reset" fixed the problem with b3 (yap, that "refused connection" was a problem with windows sockets)
b3 works fine with "Rome" project

Unfortunately, even though I re-enabled the console box, I apparently missed something even more important.
DICE has apparently removed any trace of command execution code so even though commands 'seem' like they get executed, they never are.
Since re-coding the entire command registration and execution system would be a pain in the ass, I might just introduce a way to execute specific commands in the next update.

I advice you to use BC2CC, the fact is that you must search the ip address that is listening to the port of remote admin, that is not "localhost" or 127.0.0.1 for this when you have already loaded the server, must enter in console "netstat -a" and find the ip address of the application using the port for remote administration. This is needed in order to config the BC2CC
