sys ticrate

From Quake Wiki


Default value: "0.05"
Saved to config.cfg: no

This variable is the amount of time in seconds between consecutive packets sent out by the server to the client on a dedicated server. This variable is not used on single player or listen servers.

This is one of the most important variables for the server. The default setting of 0.05 will send out 20 packets-per-second to the client. This number is too high for players using modems to connect to the Internet. It is recommended that server administrators set this variable to 0.1 in order to limit the number of out going packets to the clients to 10 packets-per-second. Setting this variable will make a lot of modem players happy.
