After a console command which dumps a lot of text to the console the server will hang 30-200 milliseconds.

Tested again with all TT official releases.

Since 4.0 Beta 3 and above all versions causing higher frame times when is used help console command.

BRenBot periodically refresh player_info and game_info which is causing it also if is in game more players.

I have noticed this as well. I believe it has something to do with windows command prompt and how it works.

But it comes just with TT releases. Old ssgm 2.0.2 and original westwood release worked fine. Same OS, same dedi.

Yea that's why it is a bad idea to write to the console unless necessary.

What windows server version are you running? I'm just going take a guess but if you ran windows server 2003 I bet that problem does not happen as much.

Windows Server 2008 R2. I cant run latest TT release on Windows Server 2003 (It display popup supported OS is WinXP SP3 and above). Instead of it tried it on WinXP but with same result. Just WinXP giving exactly 60 SFPS and not 63 like others and newer OS.

Yea you would need to update to sp3. But if it happens on xp then it must be a flaw in scripts because that is as native as you can get and its not command prompt.

It does happen on XP SP3 according to ExEric.

It might also explain the frametime issues you were experiencing even with clean Dragonade when you were testing.
