Seems to load OK.

 

The "Server" version still seems to take a long time to load compared to the ordinary one but this is consistent since 4.157 or so.

I notice longer loading times entering just to mission editor compared with 4.161. uninstalled all before. Win 10. SSD. 4770k. 32gb ram. Then works fine as always.

Hmmm...

I didn't want to make a big fuss since not everyone has the server copy but ...

 

Standard executable: roughly 16 sec

 

Server executable: roughly 40sec

 

This is on the same box, with the same applications running.

 

Started the stopwatch when I click on the desktop shortcut. Stopped the stopwatch when hourglass goes away and the screen with the credits appear ("PATHEngine", etc.).

How much can you overclock your cpu? I find I can push mine up to 4.2 for most applications and sb, but only up to 4.0 for oculus.

hey! 4.0 and can't risk it anymore, starting tomorrow we will have a new tax here for imports of 21% + 30% (plus that electronic stuff costs x3/x4 more than in the first world countries so is +%400+%51 final) you have to be rich for have a nice computer. Hope this will last 😅

We were in the same boat; I quit Brazil some time ago for that and a list of other reasons. Saludos, maestro!

I'm on a SB sabbatical as I collect parts for a new computer, but I'm looking forward to getting back into it ASAP. Thanks for the update.

Not sure you need WiFi on a desktop (esp. as you already have a GB NIC on the motherboard).

 

Cable will always outperform WiFi, although it may not be as convenient.

A "GB NIC" is a "Network Interface Card" on the motherboard that allows up to 1GB Ethernet connectivity.

 

It will be an "RJ-45" connection (a square with a notch in it - most likely similar to ones on your home 'phone, but larger) which allows an Ethernet cable to be connected to the PC.

 

In terms of convenience / performance, WiFi means you can pick the computer up and move it about without being "tethered" by yet another cable. But the performance (bandwidth) is poorer.

 

For example in our house I have fibre to the building.

 

This provides me with a 120Mbs "down" / 25 "up" connection. Even if I had fibre to the PC, that would be the best that I can achieve.

 

The local network in the house consists of Gigabit cabling, switching, etc. While that can theoretically support 1,000Mbs it is capped by the speed of the external connection, so the best I can hope for is around 120Mbs.

 

The same local network has a WiFi link but it only runs at 60Mbs. Therefore regardless of the speed coming into the house and the cabling infrastructure, the WiFi network is capped at 60Mbs.

 

Accordingly a PC connected via Ethernet can download at approx 120Mbs, while an iPad or similar device connected via WiFi can only hope for 60Mbs.

 

So a given file should take approx twice as long to download to the device connected via WiFi, than the one connected via Ethernet cabling.

 

As a result at home all the devices that support Ethernet (PC's, Laptops, Printers, Scanners, TVs, Fridges, DVD players, Cable TV devices, ...) use Ethernet in preference to WiFi , since that way we are actually using the bandwidth we are paying for, not adding a WiFi constraint to the extant network connection.

 

Minimizing the WiFi traffic will likely reduce the RADHAZ as well - but I can't prove that.

Looks impressive, Michael. It'll should run SB without a hiccup. I'm building around a Ryzen 5 3600 which is on its way along with a B450 motherboard. Parts to follow. PM me if you want to continue this discussion.

Incredible, I just got the same system.  About 2 weeks ago I picked a MSI B450 Gaming pro carbon and the ryzen 5 3600. I havent seen much fps improvements over my i7 4770k, although now I can have a bootable M.2 SSD (which is already installed), if only I can figure out how to migrate my OS to without loosing everything in the process. The one difference is that I'm running a GTX 1070 Ti

I used a “EaseUS” product to clone the old drive to the SSD, then changed the boot sequence to use the SSD first and it worked flawlessly (changed Hard Drive Labels to [i.e. able to label the SSD as C:\]).

Did you need to manually change the drive letter? This is one of my main doubts and I read somewhere that the boot drive is always automatically labelled as C

Other than that, I spent one whole day cleaning my HDD so its clone fits the smaller SSD, that meant sorting out over 500GBs of duplicates and rubbish. Also, I tried to make sure that everything on the system config was right, like UEFI boot system (mine is currently CSM), and the system type MBR vs GPT, which were things I didn't know I needed to know and I'm having to figure out as I discover them. I have a full collection of free, trial or limited shareware of software to migrate the OS, but there isnt one that I can say I'm confident that it's going to work. I might try EaseUS as well. Thank you.

 

I would like to have a software package that does that but also that is a backup solution.

You use the GUI to re-assign the drive letters.

 

So yes “manually“, in that you point and click.

 

But not “manually” in terms of a DOS prompt type command.

Living off the grid makes cable impossible.  Most places I go only have WiFi.  What is the GB NIC exactly?

If you're in the US, drop me a personal message on here some time.  If you're willing to wait for me to have a good day off, I'm more than happy to burn the installer files to CD and drop them in the mail if it'll help you get up and running.
