So, would peer to peer mean you can't really get full access to the world. Just a few players?

P.S. I'm pretty sure Salmoneous was Elder before he was Cactus Hat. I like Elder best too.

Salmoneous reminds me of Salmon..it also reminds me of a guy called salamon who's an idiot.

Why is there a disscusion of my name?

um.. anyway.
My idea is fully based on boxtops.
I have nothing agenst Dynamites idea, I just think it needs a little more thought.
And if you want to do it, Dynamite, Do it!

Becuase you change it too much D:

So, would you still like an overworld from where players choose levels, or...?

Sorry about that.

Some kind of overworld where you can aces the levels from.
An overworld would be good for many things.
It could be a meeting place for players.

And I thought about a point system.
After beating a level you will get points, depending on the level difficulty.
For the points you can buy outfits and stuff in the overworlds knyttish shops.
And in the overworld there could be mini games you can play with friends and compete for more points.
So the overworld would be a place where players could hang out when tired of playing levels.

Bah. Why not just a simple Knytt community like in the video?

Here's our problem. We plan all these features and doo-dads for a later version of the game without getting the basic engine done.
I propose that all discussion of future features cease untilwe have a working engine where players can see other players.
Hey I'm back, I'm not so back

Right, then I'm all with you.

But as the others say, we should focus on this:

for now.

I think getting a basic engine and atleast a small overworld should be top priority. After that, we should get a way to access levels.

Owned.

What it's in the video looks the most agreeable to me, compared with some of what I've read in this thread.

I have received his source, and that was not even near finished.
But it was based on Knytt Stories rather than Knytt.
And since the thread started with the knytt stories version, I assume that is the latest one, and that's the one we talk about.

Nobody said anything about it being finished. Kasran suggested that it's most important to establish a working engine, and the ability to see other players. The video shows a working engine, and two players. (And not much else.)

The video was posted nearly eight months ago, and Dynamite didn't dump the project immediately after posting it, so there must be some progress beyond the absolute basics on display in the video.

Also- since the video clearly shows a basically functional multiplayer setup (and chat dealy), and since Knytt is open-source- would it be possible to set up just Knytt itself with multiplayer? (No chat, even. That'd get distracting.) I'd be really interested in having multiplayer Knytt, especially since it wouldn't involve any controversial new features, and it'd be good PR, showing that the project is really possible.
good bye

I have never seen the source of knytt online, just the source of knytt stories online, which is frankly a whole new engine, and the multiplayer must have been made from scratch. The progress in this source was much less than in the video. It connects, but that's all. A black square represents the other player, no chat, no "move to next screen".

Yes, it would be possible to set up knytt with multiplayer, without chat. And that's what I've been doing the last 3 months, though not with knytt but with the latest official knytt stories build from Nifflas. Players are moving around, but somehow I screwed up the engine cleaning loop, and I have no idea why.

To a further notice, I have set up an SVN server with the knytt stories online project set up there.
If anyone is interested, and you have Multimedia Fusion and a little knowledge with subversioning, feel free to PM me and I'll send you the SVN details.

...wait since when is there Knytt Online and Knytt Stories Online as separate things? :S And why, if there was already so much progress on the one?
