Extending server limits

Hi folks,

Would be some ioq3 guru so nice to take a little time to explain, with possibly a patch maybe, how to extend the number of simultaneous clients beyond 32?

I modified some obvious defines and got it to work fairly decently with about 80-ish clients (most of them bots). However, the server process takes about 1 Gig of ram now, and further scaling didn’t work well.

I’d like to go farther. How far is possible?

I suppose some parts of the netcode, and maybe renderer would have to be modified a bit.

Any help is welcome.
