Thread: Paradox next title should be proper multiplayer.

  1. #1

    Paradox next title should be proper multiplayer.

    I'd throw you a bunch of money if you sat down and revised that 12 year old lobby/multiplayer system.

    and how should it be different?
    1) it is simply necessary that all players have the same version and the checksum ensures that.
    2) see 1
    3) caused by the players not by the game
    4) simply a bug
    5) see 4
    6) then don't use the lobby...

    do you know any game that uses a fundamentally different system?

    Yes, it'd be nice to get rid of the whole "lol checksum" that seems to occur whenever you leave a game. I understand different check sums per modded games, of course, but I don't see why leaving a game causes the need to restart the entire program when no other game I know of does that (barring other Paradox titles)

    Considering how many threads I see on 4chan with people who pirated the game setting up multi-player matches, not really.

    setting up is one thing,being able to continue is another.

    Which, as I've said, they've been able to do.
    Never doubt the dedication of pirates. As heartless as they are, they're good at getting their way.

    actually it prevents cheating. the alternative would be preventing file changes in the first place which would stop modding...

    Why does the checksum have to change when quitting out of a single player game though? How does that prevent cheating?

    So, you're comparing Blizzard, a vastly huge American developer with over 4,600 employees in its employ who produce well-known games which sell in ridiculous amounts of copies to the mainstream, to Paradox Interactive, a small (but budding) developer from Sweden who produce more complex games - of an almost unknown genre in comparison to Blizzard's own collection - and are limited in their resources of what they can provide for their games.

    Something seems off.
