Watch your previous game

Why is it not possible to watch your old games? I dont mean like seeing if u ended 1 or 8 or if u got +20 or -10, I mean to watch the whole game. I often thought it would be fun to watch yourself, especially when you had a great game.

This would cause masses upon masses of video storage which isn't really needed :\ I don't think that's such a good idea to be honest.

That's a great idea to me :o. Alan, there are ways around it, like only save games within last 24 hours, and make it a feature only available for premium. That is honestly the best idea I've heard :o.

Ty for the support big nob, and great idea too with 24 hours and only for prems.

It would also be an easier way to take screen shots from boosters, cheaters and teamers etc.

 

A huge thanks to everyone for making this game so fun! You'll all be missed <3

There was already a topic about this in the past. I think Alfy had a great idea so it won't take much storage. It was something like remember the start spawn, the key moves, the items and the holes :)

My name is Jeff.

Recording every game as videos would not be insanely impossible, but would require huge storage, thus when/how would you expect the data to be sent without experimenting totally foreseen massive lags when it happens? Be realistic. If you want to watch your own games, record them by your own means.

I haven't heard of Alfy's idea. I don't know how the rounds are randomized, so I don't know how might spawns and such be saved. Other idea: a simple screenshot at the end of every round.

I do understand the benefits because it would be hugely advantageous for us mods too. But recording video requires huge storage (and even if it has reduced size with simplicity, there are countless games played each day...) and would only put the server under more stress -> more lags. I think this is totally infeasible for this game personally, at least at this present time.

Tranquility - there is a way around the storage problem. Instead of CF storing the info, the info is stored onto the player's computer.

Normally your computer would forget the Random Number Generator (for start spawn, items and holes)  that the game is sending it and the player inputs. You could implement a program which would make your computer remember all of this instead. This wouldn't be hard to store - a list of numbers for the RNG, and then a list of -1s, 0s and 1s for the player inputs per frame.

Then it would be simple to replay what happened in the game using the CF program, and to convert it to a video.

That way no more pressure is put on the servers, and the player's computer takes it instead.

Yeah we know how to do a propper replay system. However we currently simply do not have the time or manpower to implement this feature. Maby for a next version?

Yo guys. You could do something like this to avoid storage:

Players can save the game data in a text file

would be a great idea, but im starting to feel like any ideas are useless around these parts because nothing is becoming of any of them.

Alfy, we are already building the game based of events with timestamps, so saving an replaying those should do the trick ;)

But we simply have more important changes to make at the moment, but this replay system really is on the list for me.

This is a great idea. I love it. I wrote it down ;) we might implement it somewhere in the future!

Don't be sorry later if the feature gets released and the servers bug because people are streaming their old games crying about their lost points. Jussaying!

Not against this feature at all. It is actually on the todo list. But there are more important things first ;)

And with one coder things simply take time.
