is this an admission of guilt? just kidding....
I just want them to have the best. Personally, I don't care if it is NoFiXette's, Crotalus's, mine, Plasmatic's, kigen's, or someone else that decides to create a new master this weekend on his TI-84+ or NES
It does not matter to me who wrote it, only that it was written to be as compatible as possible with the clients and existing master servers. And is the most reliable and stable master server to date.
The one thing we do not need is a master server that dies all the time, or is limited in capacity or performance.
Yes kigen, I am talking about your (Luigi's) master server. The reason I mention the 256 limit, or even 512, is that I remember back when the game first came out, there were over 1000 game servers. I dought that we will ever get a server count that high again, but you never know. So, I don't think there should be a limit to the number of servers a master server can maintain in its server list.
Nor do I think that the current limit of 15 game servers registering with a master server should be kept. As far as Gimme Lead and I can figure, the current master server will only allow 15 game servers from a single IP. Basically only 15 unique ports from any given IP are allowed to be registered at one time.
So, my vote goes to whatever is the best for the community.
PS - Does anybody know of other limitations the current master servers have?
