Return to BotF gaming

Post by RSE_Dissy » Wed Nov 19, 2014 6:56 pm

Hello all!

I'm back, and would like to revisit botf, for a few more games.


I spent along time trying to find alternatives.. Civilisation doesnt cut it.. Pox Nora doesnt cut it... Botf is best space empire building game ever!

who wants a game?
rse_dissy@hotmail.com

plz put timezone, prefered time to play etc

evenings best for me, 7pm GMT - 11/12pm gmt :)
very reliable player here - always like to finish games

How does the UDML map run with more than 2 or 3 players does it have lots of lag and crashes? I would be down for an epic 3 or 4 person game on that huge map!

After turn 100 turn lag was between 2 to 4 min for USA Romania game... Crash every 10 to 40 turns most desync some in battle. This was played non mpr win 7 32 bit comp me vs XP system gentle. Shorter distances will reduce lag. Honestly 3 or 4 game persons game start to finish not realistic...imho

with the current info I have collected it would be interesting to see a 5 player game. with no AI running the search/explore subroutines that cause turn lag should be nothing. :wink: but combat calculation lag would still be present. :mad:

now if we only had a stable MP interface.....

The most crucial intervention that would propel this game into stratosphere is a solid networking engine ...
