Hello friends,
We made this thread in order to help us reveal the best lobby host.

So, if you feel that you have decent connection and you're willing to host, do a network speed test on speedtest.net towards UK server. Also let us know if you've hosted anything before!

Press "share result" after you complete the test in order to post something like this:




With this method, we'll be able to emerge the best person to host.
Thank you in advance!

@TicklishPicklewickle I live in the U.K. so I don't know if that would make a difference from you hosting it as maybe I'm closer to the server, my speeds are a little slower than yours but idk if being in the U.K. would bring advantages

Hey :)
One's location has nothing to do with hosting performance ;)
It all depends on bandwitch and ping between players.

EDIT: So, in fact, it could have an impact if everyone is closer to UK than DK for example ^^

Does the server work properly all the time or is it kinda on/off? Generally DS's doesn't work well with this game, otherwise if it works that might be the best thing to do

Honestly I haven't tested it properly with a full grid yet, we'd probably want to run a social race with it first. It's always on, and works using the -searchds game launching option. As a proper DS it doesn't show up.on the server list (like you say, DS is a bit broke)

Yeah so for now I say we stick to peer to peer. The DS system doesn't work properly atm which is a shame (peer to peer is also not good, but better I guess)

@SonOfMaw would you be good with just hosting a peer to peer tonight? Idk my internet seems a little unstable so it's probably best I don't host

@TicklishPicklewickle I'd like to step down as host - it's very difficult for me to sort out the lobby, and at the same time having to jump in and out of my rig to answer PMs for the password and make sure everyone is ready to start. I was worried I was going to screw something up - I think someone who doesn't have to switch in and out of VR would be a better idea.
