View Full Version : Simple 4.09 request - CO-OP player limit increase 32->48

Maybe it was requested already, but worth to refresh.

CPU and net bandwidth increased a lot in recent years, we have very smooth missions with 32 players + some AI, the higher player limit would allow us to man more rear gunners with human players also.

I presume that lifting the limit to 48 would be a very simple and plain parameter setting change when compiling the 4.09 patch.

I will bump this now, we have SEOW Prokhorovka campaign - 4 squadrons play one coop each week and we have problems with enough slots - 32 player slots are not enough in this day and age http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

thanks in advance http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

48 players would be great. Why stop there though? If the only limit is our hardware, why not set the limit to 128 and let us decide how many players to include.

For all we know, 4.09 might be the last patch ever (gasp!) and we could still be playing Il-2 in 2012. It would be forward-thinking to enable us to fully use the network hardware of 2012, right?

(Yes I know, in 2012 we'll all be playing SoW v5. But unless the VVS are returning to SoW then Il-2 will still be the best Eastern Front sim, and I've grown very fond of that theatre!)

You know, the smaller the change, the better chance it can make it into a new patch http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
I sent the request to pf@1c.ru by e-mail also.
But I don't expect any answer http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif The guys may be very busy with SoW:BoB it seems...so don't be too sad if this won't happen.

Seems like a good Idea... As long as it doesn't delay release of 4.09m or SoW:BoB any further.
It might be a good idea to post this at The 1C forums (http://forum.1cpublishing.eu/index.php) too - I don't think Oleg is here that often anymore http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

No Hard Coded Limit at all.Either for df or coop just user settings can restrict numbers would be best.

Bump

Sure, Maddox guys are busy now but i think that SEOW and his programmer deserve an answer, and may be an increased number of players.

Don't post here but mail Oleg.

...and yes, we need absolutely more slots in SEOW. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

I already sent it to the "official" e-mail address mentioned in the above stickies, but I would appreciate if someone closers to Oleg could draw his personal attention to this simple issue, which he could pass quickly onto the right person in his team.

Agreed, would be most useful. I can just see it now, 48 players in a SEOW bomber box mission over Berlin...

from a coding perspective it would be easier to jump to 64 versus stopping at 48.

Binary math and powers of two and all that...

In one site that was promoting "modding in IL-2" ,someone was trying to increase more players to co-op gamemode but there has not been any updates on that thread for a long time.
But i'm keeping my eye on it from time to time.

i though of this possibility, but it would be off-limits for me until SoW:BoB comes out or Oleg blesses these mods

it would also pose a practical problem because if you have an unauthorized mod server with CRT=2, then it would kick everyone not using the same mod set... so a 64-slot co-op host should either fly with risky CRT=0, or distribute the exact copy of the server's mod set to it's players... both are quite clumsy options in a way... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif
