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.

^Arty maybe it'll come back by tomorrow?

lol I was actually thinking of streaming it if I joined but if two other people are I'm not going to bother.

I'll get mumble. Are they're passwords or shenanigans to go through? Send them to me via IRC or PMing tomorrow. Expect random obscure references and vulgar jokes. [not really] :P

As much as I want to join for Voice on Mumble, I can't because Something in the installer conflicts with my computer so It can't install.
So if you wanna chat me on Voice either Join on discord or ask me to open up skype.
I'll open up a private group on either client if need be

Ah, sad. But we'll be at least 6 people today, maybe it's OK if we have 2 separate groups with voicechat, one in Mumble, one in Discord/Skype.

Whoever plays and doesn't join Mumble, I'll ask them whether they'd join your discord group.

If you're my friend on discord, I'll just create the the private group with the players in it
Those who are willing try to see if calls work in private groups are free to join

I've stated this before, if you're aren't my friend on discord my contact is in the spoiler

Giga managed to install Mumble, and we had everybody in voicechat! We had excellent 5, 6, or 7 players all the time. VOD on twitch for 14 days, and IchoTolot will upload the session to youtube, split into several parts.

Thanks to everybody for joining this session! :lix-grin: I had a blast, and I've noted some issues to work on.

Multiplayer games should start with shuffled spawn positions, but the game instead orders by player color in every match. Sounds like an easy fix because the server already sends a permutation, the game just ignores it.

Exited lixes can be batted long after entering the exit. This doesn't do anything physically, it's like batting air, but it still plays the meaty batter-hit sound instead of batter-miss.

Feature request: When your mouse hovers over the multiplayer score bars, you should get a large tooltip that tables player names for the colors and detailed statistics.

The overtime rule is strange: Even when everybody wants the game to end immediately, the overtime must run out entirely before the nuke. I'm toying with different ideas. The most likely candidate idea is: When everybody presses nuke or has no lix left, then the nuke happens immediately instead of waiting for overtime to run out.

Windows Lix crashed sometimes on very large maps or with lots of action, segfaulting during memmove or inside Allegro functions. I assume this means out of RAM or VRAM. I already manage the VRAM terrain savestates by hand, but I really want solid handling, no crashes. And I want to wrap the pointer-heavy Lix job object-orientation in tagged unions for raw speed... lots of things to try, and too technical for this high-level report.
