List of users looking for a server

Postby acerspyro » 24 Mar 2014 21:05

This is only a proposition.
Let's say you tell someone "Let's go on x server", but then you change your decision. It would be nice to have some kind of user list to the left hand of the servers list that you can send a private message to someone and talk about which server to go to.

oh that's a pretty big change to the code. including a new way for the master server to communicate with the clients. unless you wanted people to be auto added to an irc channel. though thats easy enough already either in-game or an irc client

Any time I've tried to add an always online aspect to the game I get critics spouting privacy issues. In many cases such a system is not successful unless the majority of people participate in it; and making it optional severely limits that scope. My current suggestion is to add RE to Steam (as a non-Steam game). This will give you access to the in-game overlay and an already existing large number of users, with which you can send messages to your friends.

I think he means like having a "lobby" where you can browse servers and see all the players connected to the master server (who are in in the server browser) kinda like diablo 2...

If you did consider this (hypothetically) youd probably need to add a feature for a client to mute other players (so only the said client doesn't display that users messages)
Do I really need one of these signature things anyway?

Ah, sorry, I misread adding the game to Steam and having chat integration as an option. Also, I heard from IRC that Steam Greenlight (Or something like that) was pretty shitty.

Re: List of users looking for a server

Postby shirepirate » 27 Mar 2014 09:54

a lobby is an excellent idea. for privacy concerns, when someone has clicked "play online" that should be enough of a clue that they might be visible to other users, especially when they are plugged into a general lobby. that screen should contain the main irc server chat (including obviously the users connected to that irc) as well as the list of servers to connect to to play a game as it is now. spam and other crap is handled by an irc bot.

there are many times inactives in a game on a particular server will converse about random crap, and there isn't a way to disable that that i've found. it's not terrible but it's distracting. if you're connecting to a server your intention should be to play. lobby is great idea.

Re: List of users looking for a server

To borrow an idea from other games, why not simply make use of (and even improve) the IRC client that has been built into RE for ages and have it automatically connect players to #re-lobby (we could move the play.re relay to another channel) on startup? That way everyone playing the game can all chat with each other whether or not they're on a server, and since it's IRC private messages are built right in. List of users? It's IRC, baby.

It also should go without saying that the other boon is chatting with community members outside of the game, should they happen to be in #re-lobby with an IRC client. Hell, clan players could benefit from it even more by being able to join their clan's IRC channel (assuming they have one).

I'd be more than willing to help improve the IRC client as well, it's one protocol I actually know to a fair degree, and I'm not too shabby with the GUIs. I feel like this would resolve all of these requests and then some. Effective, and simple.

Thoughts?

All power to ZeroKnight for making an elegant way to connect to other players in game via IRC :-)

Zero Knight has got a good idea there... just as long as theres a setting to not auto connect to the IRC when you click play online, so that people don't complain, one irelevent 'issue' ive noticed is when you first start the game when you give your self a name, you cant add vanity items from that menu (your only presented with the first tab)

How would we be sure that players won't fake idents and thus fake owning an account name they don't? I can't imagine this working really well.

An RE-specific protocol seems like a better bet, where people send their public auth key to to identify. This could probably be written in something like Twisted, although having it part of REs server could would make for a more consistent installation experience. I think that it would be a lot better than depending on the insanely old IRC protocol, which isn't remotely meant for our purpose.
