1. Server Computer Modifications.

Keeping in mind the Location of Majority of Players, we have decided to shift the Server to India.

We have bought a Branded HP ProLiant ML300 Server. Came with Core i7 Processor and 8 GB of DDR3 Ram.

Network Connection is a Leased Line Provided by Tata. Server is hosted by me (Scar) from my Home.

There is a Dedicated A/C to the Server as well as 48 hours Power backup.

Server Specifications:
Intel Core i7-990X 3.47 Ghz (BloomField) Extreme Edition
16 GB Tripe Channel 1600Mhz DDR3 RAM.
GIGABYTE GA-EX58-UD5 LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Motherboard
500 GB RAID Controller with 2 TB of Additional Backup Storage
10 MBPS Network Connection provided by Tata under SLA.


The Analyzed server performance is about 60% more than the previous Germany server. The entire server along with the Network can provide Support upto 2500 players.

PS: Will post Pics of the Server when I happen to perform a maintainence.

3. Client Font is very neat now. You can easily differentiate between letters and hence you can stay away from Scammers.

4. Latency Indicator is added so that you can get to know your Ping to the Server. Ping is the Amount of time a Data Packet takes to travel to the Server and Return back. Ping shown in the client will also be dependent on the System that you are using. Lower is better. Usually it should be Less than 150ms.

5. GameMasters Ingame will always be Indicated by a Blue Colour Name. This will help Identify the Gamemasters correctly.

6. In the Esc menu, there is Check Payment Info. This Button is used to check the Time Remaining for the Account to play. Since A3 Mania is a Free to Play game, We have included Login Time.
