News Comments > Why Shooters Need Dedicated Servers
9. Re: Why Shooters need Dedicated Servers Jan 5, 2010, 12:34 Shataan
 
"Hosting the game on your computer puts you at a very great advantage. You will have the lowest effective ping in the game (approximately ~20ms). It's the host's computer that decides the outcome of every battle, which means that what the host is seeing on his screen is the closest to what the registration algorithm thinks is actually happening."

I disagree. As host you still carry the burden of processing all the other players info as well as the game world itself. This as well means having to process THEIR lag. How is this an advantage?

Now, IF you had a dedicated pc in your home runng the server, and you linked to it, then, maybe then you might have the actual advantage. Cause then you`d be closest to the server, and you wouldn`t be carrying that burden of processing the game world, the other players with their lag, and your own.

The last thing peeps wanna do is host. I`d rather join a server, or host a dedicated server from an exra house PC. If ya feel hosting makes you allpowerful and omnipotent, well.....

"He has no idea the repercussions of his demands. The end result is a tyrannical police state"

we don`t know if Bono actually made that statement. But no matter who did, you are right. Chinas efforts to curb internet access eh? Well if that was adopted over here, we would have a Dictatorship tyrannical police state.

Actually when you add political correctness into the situation we are already heading in that direction.

Would whoever possibly made that statement care? I dought it. Say it was Bono for example. He is a stinking rich poli-musician now. And the rich could care less if the buyer base hands get slapped. Cause they are the creative talent and it is their right blah blah blah blah. Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely.

With the amount of lawyers out there protecting artists these days, I doubt any artist is hurting at the Bank. What they are wanting is every last EXTRA sheckle they can squeeze now. And they wouldn`t blink an over who they gotta walk over, bad peeps and good, to get their desires met.

"You need only look at Rebellion's track record to see that they have consistently produced mediocre and bad games for years now."

I don`t care about their track record of other games. All I know is that I (and many) loved AVP Jaguar and PC version. Hardly perfect games, but both had that special something, that Monolith couldn`t reproduce.

I think it is awesome that Rebellions got the chance to do a next gen AVP. And so far by the looks/sounds etc etc etc, they are nailing it. Rebellions AVPs are so fondly remembered by the gaming community, do ya really think they wanna drop the ball with this release?

I suppose anything is possible. But I think it`d be highly unlikely. As always the proof is in the final release play, but diiiiamn, it is looking too sweet so far. My vote is for Rebellion for the win. ;p

THE slickest thing about FP DR was their dev team marketing vids. Man oh man they had everyone duped by all the "we got this, we got that .... DR is THE most realistic yadda yadda yadda".

Of course, then there are the realities. ;p

I`m not worried at all. The only cool games Rebellion made imo were the AVP games.

News Comments > ARMA 2 Interview
6. Re: ARMA 2 Interview Nov 30, 2009, 23:05 Shataan
 
Ya know, I love what ARMA 2 offers. But I as well love a good sp campaign experience. This game doesn`t have 1. And I don`t make maps/missions etc, not interested. I gotta say I am a fan of regular patch updates. Not seeing any regular patch updates either.

Had ARMA 2 had a decent sp campaign, I`d still be playing it, much like I did with Flashpoint 1. So lack of a decent campaign, lack of reg. patch updates, lack of enough performance polish to keep all my friends with the lowball system specs interested.... these all contributed to all my buds jumping ship.

I kept playing holding out for the 5th patch. It STILL isn`t released. So.... deleted.

"I don't think leaning means anything... a lot of PC shooters never had lean, and it really is a silly feature, no offense to those who like it."

Ya know, it is funny how every time a dev feels that a certain movement is unimportant, MANY of us naturally use those movements ingame. So when ya go to crouch, walk, sprint, run, etc etc etc, and for some odd reason unknown only it seems to the dev team..... something just is missing movementwise, it feels very unnatural.

I remember Men Of Valor. They made it so you can`t move when you are shooting. Anyone remember that 1? Now THAT was fuxoring moronic. And they tried like hell to convince PC gamers that their console aiming method was the 2nd Coming of Heyzues. lol

Long story short,Hello Dev Teams???? Please don`t fox with our immersion by dicking around with natural movement ability.

28. ya know.... Nov 16, 2009, 17:56 Shataan
 
I am pretrty dissed at how up till now certain Devs get a hold of an awesome licence, ala BladeRunner for example, and inevitably they always release it as an ASSCAM game. And... it fails miserably.

Stuff like Terminator, or BladeRunner etc etc etc, these would make amazing 1st person games if the right
Dev team got a hold of it. Especially these days with the engines and pc gear we have now.

The best thing a Dev team can ask themselves... "can we do the licence justice?". If not? Stay away from it.... and let someone who CAN do it justice, do it right.

I wouldn`t mind Steam being used as the Pub match system. But d/l-able Dedicated PC server software is a must. I`d like to run a pw ded. server for myself and a few friends.

19. Re: Upgrade Time! Oct 22, 2009, 09:17 Shataan
 
I just can`t see Rebellion dropping the ball on this 1. They KNOW what the fans have been wanting from an AVP game, cause they have been listening ever since in the forums. Time and time again, the AVP games most fondly remembered are the Jaguar and PC AVP 1. And since they made the Originals for the Jaguar/PC, it is a good bet this game will deliver.



Now, all we gotta do is wait for the demo.
