Decided to set up a computer for dedicated server again. What I want from the community are suggestions and not some silly jokes about what to run. Though, I do have some limitations on what I will run:

The game itself must be freely obtainable or easily obtainable.
It cannot require STEAM (Unless the game itself is absolutely FREE on STEAM).
Suggesting an MMORPG requires the poster to link to a working, recently updated server.
It cannot be Q3A/OA/IOQ3 (For the time being).

Server Specs:
Pentium 4 2.6GHz
1GB DDR RAM
30GB Main OS/Misc Drive
10GB (Two Partitions for SWAP)
80GB Data Drive
Windows 2003 nLite'd

I'm open to switching to using *nix if someone can point me to one which uses very little system memory. Currently, Win2003 uses up approximately 120-140MBs of RAM for the system, which is not good in my case. That amount is too much and I need as much as much RAM as possible since I only have 1GB.



What I do plan on running are the following:
MMORPG - These servers will be passworded and can only be joined through the password obtained here.
World of Warcraft (As soon as I can find a decent database)
WoW takes up an ungodly amount of space: 17GBs for the client. This will probably not work for the majority of the community.
Ragnarok Online [TXT (rather than SQL) database variant]
Last I understand, the kRO client still does not work under WINE. This may have changed in the recent updates. But in the case that it doesn't, I may scrap this all together.

FPS
Skulltag [Doom2 WAD, but others are available]

[Edit0001]Replaced the Linux statement with a much clearer message. Added the word "client" to the kRO statement.

If you need server files, at this place you might find lots of them plus suggestions for a server.

I would check out your server, if you would ran anything beside WoW. :s

- Skulltag
Doom/Hexen sourceport with lots of game types, like:
FFA: free for all, messy
TDM
CTF: hard, since players run really fast
Invasion: enemies spawn in increasingly strong "waves",
while players will get access to more weapons
Coop: team-based playthrough
Buckshot: Supershot gun only

Currently i dont have many ideas either.

Ragezone is an interesting place for servers, but holy hell is that stuff almost ineligible. I need something way more concrete as a lot of that stuff there hasn't seen updates in a very long time.

I'm only running the WoW server because I'm bored enough to do it again. It'll be open to all of Rainbow so anyone will be able to hop in at any time.

Now with Skulltag, I will be running both an Invasion and CTF server at the same time. What I need from everyone are the maps and where to obtain decent ones. Don't want to be stuck shuffling through the default maps.
