  1. You need to append this to the game, not launcher. Launcher doesn't pass these arguments. ("Warframe.x64.exe -cluster:public -allowmultiple" should be enough, but skips patching checks)
  2. You can use a dscfg dummy, running "-headless -dedicated -dscfg dummy.txt", and dummy.txt with contents: You can also take a look at my server allocator. It starts/stops server instances based on usage.
  3. Adding to that: a way for users to indicate there's an issue to the host. It's very possible those hosts mentioned have no idea what the experience is like.

    @maciejs using -headless, the new "Optimize Your Install" popup is still being shown, blocking until you act. Is there a setting to fix this?
  5. Dedicated Conclave Servers

    Yea there's a limit of 8 instances for the game engine, and the launcher limits this to 6. Did you use the steam version, or the stand-alone version? The config manager and server manager only work with the stand-alone version (https://www.warframe.com/download). If you're having trouble starting instances, start with just the server config manager (Start Instances button) and see if that works.

    plenty of crashes here. Results from 1h 15m 3x WAR-1507915 10x WAR-1507945 1x WAR-1509345 1x WAR-1509346 7x WAR-1509347

    I've been having a few issues loading instances lately. Sometimes they freeze as seen in the first spoiler (last part of the log, unedited including the times at the end). This results in following instances to start and freeze like in the second spoiler (full log, freezes after "Found 26 cache blocks..."). Not only does freezing like this cause an instance to be inaccessible, but if more are launched after, it takes down all 5 other instances running on the engine (all players in those 5 instances disconnect and host migrate, see third spoiler). Is it possible to have these loading actions time out at some point? afaik, disk activity is 0%, so it seems to be a locking issue. Having these instances close themselves would already solve a lot of the issues.

    For reference, 24 instances at default (60fps, highBandwidth=0) during quick steel event (6 players per instance) was about 12 Mbit/s upload. I think 8 players was 600kbit/s per instance (this was during snowball events). Total data during last snowball event, 4 day weekend (close to new years eve?) was 300GB uploaded and 120GB downloaded.

    The 18+ instance windows changing their title (the fps counter) 240 times a second appears to be too much for the gpu to handle. You likely wont ever get this issue tho. Minimizing the windows also fixes this.

    I run up to 24 instances at 120Hz. At 240Hz i started having issues with the gpu (server hardware integrated, just meant to produce output, its really bad) when running 18 or more instances. Note that this is a dual socket E5-2670 (v1) system, so 16 cores and 32 threads. For comparison, most modern quad-core systems can run 6 instances at 60Hz.

    I've been working on tools for hosting for a while now. As it's quite stable at the moment (no changes since U21), i might as well share it here now. It's still a work in progress, and might not be as easy to set up as i want it to be (there is an app included to do the required setup). Source code Soon (TM). https://github.com/Spiedie/WarframeServerManager @dreamquestwhen choosing VPS, make sure it's not IP banned by DE. I know AWS EC2 is banned. Estimated requirements from the my readme: ~500-700 MB ram per server instance + OS ram requirements ~1 core per server instance ~20GB disk space per 6 instances you want to run If your server is running windows, you don't need any VMs, making ram requirements a lot easier to manage (using 9GB ram for 20 instances on windows 8.1). @maciejs "Free for all" is kinda confusing in the selection, as Annihilation is commonly referred to as Free for all (FFA). I think "Public" would make things less confusing.

    For anyone with issues with their servers, change "version=7" to "version=8" in your DS.cfg :)
  13. Dedicated Conclave Servers

    You are running one of the variant modes. those shut down after 5 minutes when they're not active. I think DM variant is the default mode if nothing is specified. Have you set up your DS.cfg? (%localappata%\Warframe\DS.cfg)
  14. Dedicated Conclave Servers

    Create a shortcut to the Warframe exe (Warframe.exe for 32 bit, Warframe.x64.exe for 64 bit). In target, add " -cluster:public -allowmultiple" the the end. so if installed in C:\Program Files\Warframe, it looks like Its a bit different when using steam, but same idea For launching servers, there is a bunch of info here: Another tip is to launch a server using the launcher, exit (press Q while having the server selected) and check the first line in the logfile (%localappdata%\Warframe\DedicatedServer.log). It shows you exactly what is given to the process to launch the server.
