We don't allow multiplaying and our current max for players IN GAME is
353. It was also a royal pain getting it to support this many descriptors.
Currently, the game allows up to 502 (512-10) connections.

The problem you might be having with setting it to 300 is the machine
you're own may only support 256 file descriptors. Ours was and it was the
BIGGEST pain the ass changing it.
