Unhappy Repka No-Lag Test Server...?

As you'll probably already realise, Repka's dogfight server is proving quite popular and offering some reasonable multiplayer action (relatively speaking).

But lately the server has been renamed to "no-lag test" and for me at least, requires a password to enter. It's a shame because it's often the only server running with 10+ players logged in, where most others are empty...

Does anyone know what the story is, or the password?? I notice they've started running a second Repka dogfight server that's not password protected, but it's often empty like most others.

There are 3 Repka servers. #1 - full real, #2 - various stuff and tests, #3 - quick dogfight.

I saw the server, and really wanted to get on - there were something like 40 people on it. From what I understood it was a test to try to find out if disabling custom skins would reduce lag. I managed to log on with the password from the sukhoi forums but there were no planes in the sky when I spawned in. There was obviously something amiss so I left an apology (to the effect of "sorry if I was not meant to be here or messed something up") and logged off. Further info would be appreciated.

This is a Steam bug. It shows incorrect number of players on passworded servers (maybe counting connect attempts as players). There where not more than 3-5 people flying on that server at the most. BigRepa tests custom skins influence on server stability on that server.

Repka #1 and #3 are more populated usually.

ah, thanks for the info! It makes me feel better to know I'm not missing out on massive multiplayer carnage But also worse that custom skins are causing issues with stability (longer before we get to use them properly)

as a rule custom skins stay off...its just another thing to eat up bandwidth and cause lag.

I do understand you It is a good bug to promote servers We will sell password for $5 next time to fund a development of the correct squirrel FM as requested by community

Seriously speaking I think we can have such a carnage in 3-6 months either on Repka or Syndicate or some other server. Looking forward to it. This is only a beginning no matter how hard it is.
