[APRIL FOOLS!] UQMultiplayer needing alpha/betatesters
« on: April 02, 2006, 01:01:10 am »

Okay, so I've been working on a Multiplayer implementation of Super Melee for the past few days, and it seems to be working nicely on the LAN so far..

However, I've got no idea how well it'd run through the Internet.. And that's why I need your help. Unfortunately, since I've got to go right now (got to get up way too early tomorrow!) and since my Internet is being a pain in the ass (it's being WAY to slow, even though I know I can get around 550KB/s max), I'll release a crude binary together with the even cruder source tomorrow..

Either way, though, I need people to betatest it together with me extensively, so I can  polish it a bit and try to see what parts of it can be improved on/changed completely..

Is this a separate program, or does it hook into UQM? Are you working with the team on this?

Nope, the team is not involved, but we welcome patches like this (if the code is decent).
Like with the Starfire group last year.

Very nice. A little bit of lag (might be on my end, might
be the server). Anyway, good job!
