Multiplayer

A Multiplayer mode for RoR is under construction. We made the very first multiplay debug session last night with Thomas. You can see the result in the screenshot section and in this (historic) video he made:



There are still many details to fix, but the first results are very encouraging.
Cheers!

wow!
hows the fps on slower machines with multiplayer

multiplayer has negligible impact on the fps, even with lots of players, because the physics processing is distributed across all players. The only technical limit is the required network bandwidth, that increases for each new player.

i see,
and how about server listing?
or is there 1 server (that runs 24/7)
olso, when press esc ingame, will there be a popup that askes if oyur sure to leave in the next version?
cause in multiplayer this will be even more annoying...

danharibo: look in the screenshot section. That's where you can see the Mac version running.

pricorde: Both me and my 6-year-old son love RoR, so the multiplayer is an awesome development :D Thanks, what you've made is incredible!

"No, this is NOT the Macintosh port (I still need to buy a mac to make it).
It is RoR running in Windows Vista, which is running on a Macintosh (using bootcamp)."

Above text taken from the description of the image. To be clear, it's running on Vista on a mac. :)

True, but considering all the new things that are being implemented it's not surprising it takes so long...

That's not to say I'm not eagerly awaiting this version along with everyone else. Gotta remember to breath every now and then... ;D
