This is a question about setting up a normal Doom 3 server (like a Deathmatch server). I've noticed that a lot of the regular Doom 3 servers allow up to 8 people to join. However when you try to create a listen server from within the game, you can only have a maximum of 4 people. I know that in ROE, they changed it so that you can have 8 people, but these are regular Doom 3 servers (not ROE servers). How can you set up a regular Doom 3 server and have 8 people play? I'm guessing it's a tweaking or something. Setting si_maxplayers to a number higher than 4 doesn't work. How is it done?

You are right about the tweeking part for the si_maxplayers in your .cfg file. However you cannot do this on a regular listen server. You will need to run a dedicated server for this.

The game manula also says that if you want to host more then 4 players you will need to run a dedicated server to handel the bandwidth.
