Can some admin Stick this post? It looks usefull to all.
Come and say what is cruelly missing here, I'll update the list so that Techland can mind it in further patchs :
<UL TYPE=SQUARE>
<LI>Text chat when dead
<LI>A standalone server program
<LI>Players number above 12
<LI>SKIRMISH mode, without reapparition
<LI>Chrome Editor to make maps
<LI>Content auto download
<LI>Follow players camera when dead

<LI>(why not) Ping numbers instead of indicators
<LI>(why not) A voice chat like on PS3 and 360 could be fun
<LI>(why not) A text message in chat saying when you hit somebody
[/list]
Text chat is the BASE OF A MULTIPLAYER GAME ! Did you forget that a multiplayer game was made of interactions between players ? To me it's unbelievable to have disabled chat, it was one of my favourite feature in CoJ1

Players number : ok 6v6 makes epic games... But what happens if for a reason and another we decide to make a 20 players game on the servers we pay 100$ / month because of the "no linux compatibility of the game" ?

Chrome Editor : 8 maps is few for a MP game, Call of Juarez community has good map makers who want to create some maps too.

Content auto download : if a player has not the map, the files are downloaded automatically from the server. Like in Call of Duty 4 for example.

Ping indicators : PC players don't want indicators, we want our real ping numbers, that's important to know about the players you fight. What means orange color ? What means red ?

SKIRMISH mod is excellent for teamplay, we all loved that in CoJ 1 ! You have to wait till the opponent team is all dead but it's thrilling !

Following your friends camera when you're dead makes your waiting less boring.


I want lot of reaction to this post players http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
A similar post has been made for 360 players in this forum, thx to the author.

Yeah text chat is important on the PC I guess. On the PS3 however everyone uses voice communication, so it's not really an issue there.

The only thing we need is the ability to set a password on our games, so only friends join.

It's also missing standalone dedicated server support, which is huge for lots of people.

A voice chat on PC would be cool as well.

No, nothing, create a topic for Internet Game help http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

This is "new features suggestions" topic, but your private slots interest me as a personnal issue. So create help topic maybe it helps people.

Text chat when dead

A standalone server program

Players number above 12

Chrome Editor to make maps

Content auto download

Ping numbers instead of indicators

A voice chat like on PS3 and 360 could be fun

Are you kidding me? Half of those things were promised in an interview!
It looks like Techland took the UBI approach to vid games, shipe em out half-baked and possibly patch later.
I am calling it now, if any patches are released they will be for game bugs, no SADS or anything else needed for the PC

PS- I am done with game, me and my clan isn't even going to bother. ARMA2 has much more respect for the PC player

Also, I would like to see damage messages. The same system from original CoJ would be great.

Sponts your idea is good, but they have decided to replace damage messages by a yellow round when your hit. I don't think they are going to change it from now, and the new system is kinda sweet to me.

Whatever this is a free talking place so I add your idea to my 1st list

Well I would just be happy that I can connect to a bloody server lol.

I am on PC, every time i try to connect it doesn't matter what server = after 10s connection timed out...

Firewall/Anti virus isnt the problem ( turned both off).
PFF... I read and hear lots of people have the same prob.. fix it ubi/techlnd

I think, it would be greatest game with multiplayer BOTs. For example, I can't play online, I passed all story mode, but I want to play Western!!! So please, someone make them for this great game!

Empire, I had this problem. I uninstalled Hamachi from my computer (or disabled its network in Control Pannel) and now it works just fine.

I added Skirmish mod to my list (without reapparition), and spectator possibility when dead.


ANY OTHER IDEAS ABOUT MP ?
