/vm/ is a place to discuss all types of multiplayer games, whether on console, handheld, or PC, co-op or competitive, online or local.

Does this mean discussion of multiplayer games is banned on other video game boards? No! /vm/ is just a separate board specifically focused on multiplayer games where discussions about your favorite games can thrive.

Please familiarize yourself with the rules and remember to use the spoiler function where appropriate!

Please note that, like /v/, "Generals"—long-term, one-after-the-other, recurring threads about a specific game are not permitted on /vm/. Such threads belong on >>>/vg/

you faggot never heard of tremulous have you?
"Esport" changes and Hive rating killed this game.
Can you still get a full server around 8-9pm EST? I remember a few servers that were always full and teams would take turns swapping between marines and aliens and took care to make sure the teams were balanced, it was really fun.
>So why aren't you playing it right now?
Because I don't play games with less than 5000 concurrent players.
There are roughly 4-6 full servers around those times. And if you can't join any of them you can usually just join an empty server and watch it fill in 10 minutes while you practice movement on aliens.

Like 10% of the playerbase actually experience improvement, shittons of accounts have been stuck in silver gold for YEARS, it's always the same people streaming, everybody hate the game and is very vocal about this yet the community is still super active.

Why is all that energy put in a game no one really likes playing anyway? Fortnite's popularity is due to it being actually fun to play, but league? Is it because of the weeb and koreaboos pandering?

multiMC is just a launcher, like twitch launcher or TLauncher. only good thing about it is it makes sharing custom modpacks easy since you can just press the "export instance as .zip" button, then pass the .zip to everyone else who will install with with drag&drop into the interface. installing Forge onto the instance is also easy as pressing the "install Forge" button. plus there's a pirate-friendly version floating around somewhere, which is nice too.

Name me one capeshit game that has been good since 2012

I know you LOVE to consoom but accessibility and popularity means the death of creativity.
Good news is Tspy is both accessible AND creative. And servers are well taken care of at around $230 a month with reciepts published in an unredacted state.
Can't believe we got this far without mentioning some of the incredible costume parts available on Thunderspy. We've ported parts from the Freakshow and the lost. One of our players even made a series of chest symbols that are color tintable. More to come on this.

Dwarf and Tank are overall detriments and I could maybe see Tank used in 1v1 duels but that's it. The quality of Frontline matches dropped drastically and will continue to be garbage for a couple more weeks until the retards get bored and uninstall again until the next patch in july 2021.

Falx is is basically just an exe sword with a combo I dont know why it isn't just an exe skin.
Butcher is a good perk idea but also still not quite enough to deal with horses when killing the rider is just plain faster and doesn't cost you points.
Supplied and Mule are okay I guess.
Stun is literal trash. 6 points for a half-second stun on a man who is already going to die from being disarmed, even running around with a sledgehammer wasn't much fun because people tend to die long before they get disarmed especially after the stamina drain nerf to sledge.
tank ruined the game lol
yet another useless obstacle an entire team has to spend 10-15 seconds killing just so we can move on. tank is extremely slow so the player himself will not be getting a good KD or high kills at all. purely just a gimmick that slows down the battlefield same as horses, shields, catapult etc. they literally just added 1 more thing that slows the flow of the game down
It'll give archers another thing to shoot at that isn’t normal people.
play brawl and ranked 3v3

>Server architectures (P2P vs Client-Server vs instances)
>Cheats and anticheats

1. Pick a programming language and search for a tutorial on socket programming.
2. Learn the core skill of sending data across the network using said language.
3. Use this skill to turn a tiny (the smaller, the better) game into a multiplayer game.

Not that anon, but is it still a good idea to run servers off of an AWS EC2, or are there way better options these days

The GDC talk explains that they use rollback to override hit effects with active defense actions that happened in the past, using timestamped inputs. You can see this in game in the same way you see blockstun/hitstun override each other in fighting game rollback. What it doesn't explain is what anybody who plays the game can see - That they're fudging player positions by sliding models around mid animation, which requires the attacking player to have confirmed they were on target before their attack completes. The distance travelled mid animation in the webm is of course not the natural range of this animation.

Under fighting game rollback you may see the other player teleport forward if they used a forwards moving attack or dash and the input took several frames to reach you. The input happened in the past and so you end up skipping several frames and seeing the other player appear mid movement/mid attack. But this isn't what's happening in FH. In the webm the input to begin the attack has clearly already reached this peer, but the attacker's position is then modified after the fact. The attacking player ALSO sees this slide on their own screen, because the attack being on target is confirmed before it reaches active frames and will slide after the other player if they attempt to move out of range.
Apparently azure is good but honestly can't say, i've never had to be the one who had to fuck around with these scalable vm.
>Can someone break me down what server costs look like?
as someone who tried to understand what the cost would be to run on AWS.... it is intentionally made to be incomprehensible so they can surprise charge you.
