Spectator mode

Post by fraus » 06 Dec 2018

As a video content creator and an active member on the forum a way to spectate in game that would be enjoyable to watch as a viewer (kinda like GOTV) would be amazing!

It's not possible with current networking solution.
We have 500 msg per room limit. Even if you are not playing, you are still receiving all data about game.
Basically more spectators in room = less players can play.

@fraus
Maybe you mean a tool which records all game datas to display the game later ?

@picsouman yes pretty much. like, it gathers the inputs(of the players) as well as the events in game (nades thrown, player death, player spawn etc) and have it save as an output which would in turn into a viewable file.

Ah, you mean demo recorder.
If something like this will be added, then not in closest future.

Yeah, COD has had this for a while as theater mode. But since we're on PC and you can screen cap yourself for free, this would be less useful overall than on consoles
