We're having a game night this Friday. Usually I'd just shut the fuck up and post a TF2V thread since it's been forever since anyone has played some good and proper TF2 (fuck you Valve) and it's possible to server config all the bullshit out of it. However, NEOTOKYO is also a really great pick and some anon was also offering to host DOOM multiplayer. So, out of courtesy to anons of many different cultures and tastes, YOU pick WHAT gets hosted.

'To be ABSOLUTELY and PERFECTLY clear, this is NOT another "haha everyone seems to like X but nobody will host it what a shame" poll that happens every single fucking time in these kinds of threads.' Either I will host a game that wins the vote this weekend or one of the (probably non-existent) volunteers will. If something happens to the plan to host it on my side (emergency, etc) you will hear it in advance.

POLL EXPIRES ON WEDNESDAY 7 PM UTC GOTTA HAVE TIME FOR SETUP

>Thats the plan.
There should be a link for steamfags then. I think https://store.steampowered.com/app/17580/Dystopia/ will just work. Lazy anons, which are more likely if you're inviting other boards particularly markchan are more likely to just hit install in (((Steam))) while those of us who want to avoid that will happily use the manual method.
>No idea, I'll probably put max players at 32 though. Not sure how much this 5€ VPS can handle. If we can even get that many players and it starts choking I have enough trial credits to put it on some better hardware though, with only ~5min downtime. If it comes to that we could probably do 64 players.
Last time it crashed beyond 32 players and the mod was apparently designed only for 16 anyway.

>What is Thrive?
Thrive is littelary a free open-source beta Spore, but it's trying to be more of a half-sim then anything. 
The game is curently  and it will be mostlikely forever in development.
While they do have ((((patreon)))) but as far as I know the development is actually faster then before. They are sadly still on the first stage. 
You can download it through here 
https://revolutionarygamesstudio.com/releases/ 
But I would rather wait, because today is a new version coming out
Also you can check the devforum if you want 
https://forum.revolutionarygamesstudio.com/
And also their main site

Not necessarily, while it's based on mono, based on the amount of shit they changed in it to optimize that shit for games, I don't think they'd have any problems if they'd have to maintain their fork in the long run. Or create some frankenstein implementation where they pull the new class library and whatever, but keep their old runtime.
I'm not saying they'll go this route, but they can. Like how many people/engine/game still use lua 5.1, when 5.2 was released in Dec 2011.

>no point in using it in a Unity game
big rip.  I've been using it to make a dialog window appear so that people can choose files to import.  Is there a good way to do this without using System.Windows (which is the WPF namespace)?  Might just have to get rid of that in a public release, though I was only using it for the map editor to upload specific files, so I guess it's not that big of a deal.
Replies: >>14776
>>14773
Windows Forms should work under Mono (mostly), and I'm sure it has a file chooser dialog, so you could just use that instead. I used this tool in the past on Linux under mono without problems, other than being ugly.

>think about for several days if I should bother using ZScript and foregoe the possibility of K8Vavoom support or not
>settle on ZScript instead 
After some fiddling around with ZScript I managed to convert a few actors to ZScript mainly the base class and the weapon class. There isn't any noticeable changes though I had to fix a few bugs that happened after the conversion. It fucking sucks because now it makes my mod now entirely dependent on Graf Doom, as I would like to see if after tons of bug fixes if K8Vavoom would run overall better or not. Still I have a older version of my mod that sort of runs under K8Vavoom so I can still check it out later when more engine progress has been made. Now it is going to take half a million year to figure out how ZScript works and taking advance of it so that I can have more complex features. Preferabbly I want to have only 1 selectable tank class, the player should be able to switch to a different tank model when he is certain check points (yet to decide to how its gonna work), so for example when the player made enough score he can switch to Leopard 1 HA (Heavy Armor) model. 
I hope learning a little bit of python will give me a better understanding how ZScript works.

This got me thinking, are there any truly good, modern single player games out there anymore? Ones that don't have any sort of tacked on multiplayer or aren't designed with multiplayer in mind? I guess what I want from a good single player experience is for it to be a self-contained environment; one that expects you to learn skills related to it and then push your skills and knowledge of the game

Anon, I'm really sorry. I tried it and a few hours in it's pretty much XCOM but much more lenient because your guys are insanely powerful with like chain lightning and infinite AoE through walls attacks, have a decent chunk of HP and you don't get hit as much because of dodge masteries/block.

I reinstalled Titanfall 2 a few days ago after being reminded of it in a thread here and I've been swimming in endorphins ever since.  The experience of going fast, shooting people, piloting mechs, and being free of most CY+5 AAA bullshit was refreshing.  I also started replaying the campaign and I've been having a surprisingly good time with that, too.

>the fuck is titanfall?
It's like CoD if you ripped out 90% of CoD's garbage game design and replaced it with giant robots, rocket launchers, and a naked lust for speed.  Possibly the best FPS of the last decade and one of the few EA games that isn't made for FIFA niggers and soy golems.

>why the fuck should i care?
EA released it on Steam earlier this year, and that brought a huge influx of new players.  After Apex Legends confirmed the series had been killed in favour of Battle Royale trend-chasing last year, the infusion of new blood and attention has been a much-needed note of optimism.

>doesn't this game require Origin?
Yeah, it's pretty faggy.  Even if you buy it through Steam, you still need to have a stripped down version of the Origin launcher in the directory (and I believe you'll need an Origin account, similar to how Ubisoft's Uplay DRM works).  Origin isn't active malware that will commandeer your PC's resources to become part of a botnet anymore, but saying "all it does is uniquely identify your hardware and cross-reference it with other data" isn't much better.  You can get around giving EA money by using a key reseller, but Origin is the real price to pay.

Anyway, let's talk about Titanfall and maybe post some gameplay clips or something.

If anybody cares, I made a network for napchan.  Happy hour is 10 p.m. EST.  Also, does anyone know the best way to record the game without frame drops or hitching?  I can reduce my graphics options and get solid video quality, but the game still stutters whenever I'm moving quickly or looking around.

>>14840
>Someone else still paid for that key
A very low price in local currency.
>by using the services tied to it you're supporting EA.
EA doesn't make any money from me playing the game; at most, they can use some of the data crawling done through Origin to make money by selling it to advertisers, but I don't buy any of the microtransactions in the store.  EA clearly doesn't want to support the game with updates or new maps/modes any more.  Considering that Respawn delivered a solid year of free updates (maybe a bit more; my memory's hazy) after the game's launch, I personally do not believe that paying $10 for a Titanfall 2 Steam key is a moral compromise.
>but you're just making excuses
Partially, yeah.  The game is just that good, and I was personally willing to pay that price in 2016.

Depends on how quickly you pick up the movement; I still see people who pretend they're playing CoD and don't know how to slide hop, even though it's literally as simple as running > crouching > jumping > crouching.  You might find some of the weapons to be super gay, but most of the demon guns were nerfed in 2017.

>>14718
I really hate those pictures because they're just anime girls with hair ornaments and metal bikinis.  No thought went into their design.  That they're the unofficial mascots of a cuckchan general (or at least they were) is even worse.

>>14719
Yep.  Fun fact: because the single player was never patched, you can compare the strength of the various titans and weapons from launch to the present day.  Ion's laser core lasts several full seconds longer, the Spitfire is a joke, the Mozambique is still awful, the Mastiff is still a meme, and Tone is a gorilla with a gun.  It's really funny once you get to know the guns better.

>>14742
You might be surprised.  It's made in the Source engine and you can remove nearly every graphical effect in the options menu.

At least the only difference between winning and losing in this game is one or two merits.  It genuinely annoyed me that he was ignoring the game so much and yet his team still won because my team loved throwing themselves into the meat grinder on B.

>Why and what purpose is it to release it on the (((Epic Store)))?
Tencent throws money it gets from other venues at developers for an exclusivity deal (that's usually more than whatever are their sales projections) because Tim Sweeney really cares about ethical practices in the free market a more fair publisher-developer split than valve's 30-70 busting monopolies trying to dethrone steam despite not having any utilities steam offers.
Basically Tim Sweeney, using tencent's money buys the games for himself, and you can pay extra on top of that to support the developers for the privilege of having access to them too. if you buy Epic Games you're extra retarded compared to buying games in 2020 in the first place, you're paying for pic rel's sloppy seconds
Almost as fun as amazon and walmart coming in and offering everything you do in your store at a massive loss that doesn't bother them until they drive you under.
