Netplay General Discussion
« on: July 30, 2008, 01:58:32 AM »
Before anyone says anything:

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=26
viewtopic.php?f=1&t=7734&start=0&st=0&sk=t&sd=a&hilit=netplay

If you dont want to click then:

Q: Can I play this game online?

A: Not yet, although this is the number one request as of now. If you can actually help with getting netplay off the ground, by all means, let us know!



That out of the way, I think a general (maybe sticky) thread for this should be made. Just talking about possibilities, what you would do with Netplay, etc.



Just to pitch in a idea, although its problably been studied a million times: Implanting a free open source Kaillera alternative. The question is how/which.
A quick search turned this up: http://kaillera.movsq.net/ but Id pretty much bet you already knew about this or or know other betters.
The basic idea would be to find someone who is willing to write up a network lib such as the one created for Multi Theft Auto.  Maybe we should try posting on all known tech forums and see if someone comes up.

Well Ive been around here some time already to know how SMW has developed :P and the "no netplay" topic.
It would be nice if the devs also go in on this general discussion to see what possibilities they've already studied.

We should try contacting nmn somehow, to help do what he was doing again.

Thats gonna be nearly impossible seeing as he hasnt come on her in a YEAR; His intrests have problably shifted to something else.

Is there any way the current team can build from that source code and continue? I imagine like I said the main problem is that the team has no network/developer.

I didnt expect this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Nmn

He made his own Wikipedia page :) This is about 99.9% sure that this is him, seeing as his hobbies. Maybe we can contact him thru there.

Well staff can see his E-Mail, so if he still uses that email, we still have a chance at contacting him.

Edit: Oh fiddle sticks, thats awesome about the wiki...

He may not have the same email; That would be the problem.

That wiki was made in mid-July and today is the last day of July so...Its pretty recentish.

*looks at the higher up mods, and admins to do it*

I hope the admins see the cause in this thread and just not some lame n00b attempt to ask for Netplay and sticky it.

I really don't know if it's that sticky-worthy though.. even though I played with the idea a bit.

.. eh, what the hell, why not.

Thanks :) All Netplay discussion can now go in here.

Lets hope the devs post something in this thread stating possibilities that they've tried and/or studied.

Would it be possible to create a P2P kinda network or would this cause syncing issues?
