I typed that after hlds.exe -num_edicts 2048

but it gave me the error:
Both clients and servers need matching values

Does that mean that everyone that plays the server have to run his cs with num_edicts?

I would think of it the other way. I think its trying to tell you the server is not running on that setting. I believe the server would automatically change the property of the clients.

I went to HLDS.EXE opened it's properties and added after HLDS.EXE num_edicts 2048 then click ok, shut down server then re run it with hlds.

Did i do it wrong?

Can I ask why you are changing num_edicts to 2048 to begin with?
Seems like quite a bit of entities to me

To fix Reliable channel overflow error that I'm getting, I was told that I have too many entities, When I only had 270 solid entities and 260 Point entities.

And what is the max number of entities allowed? or a good number for entities?

According to the valve developer wiki:

-num_edicts <variable> - Sets the entity limit for map/game entities (not temporary entities, which is still locked to 500). 900 is default. 4096 is a good limit, beyond that seems to cause hunk_alloc errors. Both clients and servers need matching values for best compatibility.

Note that it says temporary entities is locket at 500, I'm not sure what it means, but since you have a lot of entities at your map and there are many players, it might be due to this.

You could also go to http://twhl.info/ and ask them, since truth be told, we are all mapping nubs here except for superjer

When you're writing post, you have a small button in the top right corner of the blue window that says Attn. Press that button, then write superjer in the left part of the text box that appears.
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

That option definitely will not work unless both the client and server sets it. So you can pretty much forget about it because that's just not feasible.

In my experience you'd better stay safely under 400 entities in your map. It may seem to work with more, but can still crash with certain mods loaded, more players, bots, etc.

The game and server mods tend to use up a lot of slots on their own.

What the hell are you doing that takes so many entities? Are you sure you can't combine some?

Combine? You mean take the same entitys then Ctrl+T and combine them? Don't they Count as sperate entitys? I did that for the windows ladders and such, Its hard to keep it under 400 Entitys
It's a jailbreak map thats why it needs alot of entitys

They don't count as separate. An entity can have any number of brushes in it.

Entities will get buggy sometimes if the different brushes inside are too far away (more than 2000 units or so I guess). So avoid that.
