Serverengine still reports as 3339, although the game version is reported as 1016.

Additionally, I didn't experience a load reduction for the servers on our linux machine.

This leads me to the conclusion that not all promised 3369 features are implemented yet.

Fellow Admins, what are your expriences with the latest patch?

I haven't seen any cpu load or ping reductions to speak of either.

In fact, I'm running only RO on a dual xeon 1GB Win Server 2003 machine. I did that because I
a) noticed that pings were still 150+ on a 30 slot machine
b) cpu usage was very high.

I started looking around and saw several loaded servers running the new map and pings for all players were all less than 100. I was going to ask if those happened to be linux machines, but my question has been answered by the first poster.

Now I wonder what CPU those servers are running. AMD or Intel?

We did warn you guys several times before that the CPU optimizations were not that large overall.

That is strange, as the benefit back in mod times were quite impressive when switching to 3369. There we could easily go from 22 to 28 slots keeping cpuload even.
Thats the main reason for us hoping that this update could help there as well.

All relevant 3369 changes were merged in. We just didn't change the version number because there were a lot of non RO relevant changes (things relating to UT specific gameplay, etc). There weren't any server CPU related changes left out though. As Yosh said, the changes for 3369 weren't that extensive.
