Multiplayer 2017-09-03
« on: August 25, 2017, 02:48:51 pm »
Hi all,

Rubix and I are planning Lix multiplayer for Sunday, September 3rd, at 18:00 UTC (= 11:00 Pacific daylight savings, 20:00 in Germany or Austria).

Who's up? :lix-grin: It's perfectly fine to play for the first time.

You need Lix 0.8. At the given time, click Network Game and connect to lixgame.com (large button in the networking menu).



Voicechat: I recommend Mumble. Connect to this server:

Servername: Lix
Address: lixgame.com (this is now the same as 185.164.136.173)
Port: 64738 (this is the default)
Username: (type whatever you like)

I may be able to make it. I'll be back at my family's house for Labor Day weekend, but I'll try to join in if we're not doing a family thing.

Sadly I can't make this one, I'll be working at that time. Would love to get involved if you do it at a time I can play in the future.

Whoa, lots of interest. Awesome!

Still Sunday, 3rd for you, at 12:00 noon. Utah is -6 from UTC during daylight savings and -7 during standard time.

Once it fits into your schedule better, propose a date and time yourself. Will be happy to play! Or ask in IRC/Discord on the fly, multiplayer works with 2 players already.

I'll see if I can make, that's the problem of having a shared computer. If I sleep in late, someone else takes it

I've installed a Mumble server for voicechat!

Voicechat during Lix multiplayer is optional. Join voicechat if you'd like, but you don't have to. Download Mumble. In the Connect dialog, click "Add New..." and enter:

Servername: Lix
Address: lixgame.com (this is now the same as 185.164.136.173)
Port: 64738 (this is the default)
Username: (type whatever you like)

Most likely, nobody will be online now (Friday night), but I'll hang out there on Sunday.

I know that some forumers use Discord for voicechat. Unfortunately, Discord on Arch Linux still has the bug that breaks voicechat for me -- it's a known problem, but still not fixed. The program is closed-source, all we can do is hope for a bugfix. Mumble, instead, is open-source software, and has better latency than Discord.

Is there any chance someone could record this, the last one which was recorded was so fun to watch!

I'm going to stream the session on twitch. Look for the vod within 14 days:

I'll tell all joiners that I'll be streaming. I suppose everybody will be fine with it.

I have planned on trying to record this and upload it later. So we've got a live stream and a Youtube upload then. ;)
