Put show players who are active

Post by jalewolt711 » Wed Sep 04, 2019 12:26 pm

Who can put show players who are active? Because if I play multiplayer I didn't know who are active and only on message I see who are chatting but the problem is I didn't know next if he/she active or inactive. This topic it may help the players who are active and also in your apps (AOS, AOWW, AOF, AOG "Upcoming", and more) will be very nice I think. :)

i am working on a way to see other player's movement while they are moving units (like you see AI movements too)
when this is ready i will have informations if a player is at the game or not, i can show that somehow - where to show that?

Not only in the launched game. Put show player active/inactive in the other button besides of the chat message. And if you click the button for show player active/inactive you can see who are active and then you can to talk with the player like private chat.

Make it on a lobby? I mean a room that when you connect to it, it shows who is on it, from there you can have a live chat, profile, and play "live" matches... And even watch other ppl matches after they had already started.

Lobbies like that are used on CNC.net servers to host the old C&C games on PC. And i think that method could work here.
Stay Awesome!

My idea:

version (A)

under Multiplayer button:
half screen
- your running games list as now
- the join/create buttons
other half screen:
- the chatbox (autorefreshing, same as under "join" now)
- under it a list of online chatters in max 2 lines like : "Online: Doom, PussInBoots, Jalewolt, ..." (clicking on it the list expands to show all players, than clicking on player lets add or remove as friend.)

Tapping, scrolling any part of the screen will increase the size (of the upper list OR the chat part)
but seems a little crowdy - any other idea?

version (B)


under Multiplayer button:
- same list as now
- buttons:
[NEW] [LOBBY] [@] (@ is refresh)
if you press new 2 new buttons appear under it like:
[NEW] [LOBBY] [@]
[JOIN] [CREATE]

on clicking LOBBY button
A screen opens called LOBBY:
- top half screen there is a 2 column list of online users listed (scrollable) - clicking on player lets add or remove as friend.
- under it half screen the chatbox (auto refreshing - like a normal chat :))
- buttons on bottom: [JOIN] [CREATE]

----------
what do u think? any other idea?

I prefer 2nd variant because i have sometimes lots of ongoing matches.
Like 25-40 matches.

Please when you ask to change something argument why do you want that change. ...
Put some numbers, compare to what other races have and so on. Some real info why it must be done.

I liked "B", it's simple and allow space for it be expanded with more functions on the future.
