Multiplayer: info for max_players showed with the map info
« on: September 06, 2007, 11:12:21 am »
hiho
i would like to habe an sign for each map that shows me how much player it can be played with(i hate it to spawn as civilian in coop games :P)
also i would like to ask if the maximum number of 8 units is hardcodet for each site?
its sometimes a lil bit boring to play coop, 2 on 8, the aliens dont got a chance, and having only 2, or 1 soldier for each of the players istn much of a help, the aliens die anyway :P

you can increase the amount of aliens - max players per team is 8 (counts for every team, civs + aliens, too)

2.2 will give you information on which gametypes are supported for the selected map

so it is indeed hardcodet (the maximum unit number per team) and will never change?
ok, to ask "hey, i whant an game with 10k aliens because im so 1337" is stupid, but imagine u play on the harvester_crashsite map and u only got 8 aliens, thats not much in my eyes :P

an option to unbalance the teams(make the aliens more supperior in coop games) would be nice
