Multiplayer lobby suggestions

Postby patto » Thu Oct 02, 2008 4:09 am

Server browser should have a refresh button.

Also I think filter settings should be remembered when you go back to the server browser after just finishing a game

And I'm sure this has been brought up but chat would be good too.
Funny story: once I was waiting to start a game and a player was communicating to us by changing his nickname

Yeah lobby chat is coming soon, don't worry.

And the server browser auto-refreshes after a couple of seconds (don't know how many to be exact).

I agree about the filter settings though.

All the cool kids are communicating by changing their names

It's the pre-game lobby chat for the chat deprived!

The server browser doesn't have a 'refresh' per-say, but i think i've noticed it constantly updating like every.. 5-20 secs.

Also, when you are hosting a game and waiting for players to join, it would be very very nice if you can still chat in the lobby. That way you can convince others to join, or see if anyone else rather you join their game.


one other thing, but not as critical, would be able to see the game list still while hosting and waiting.
