Title: OA-TV
Post by: Peter Silie on February 01, 2009, 06:33:41 AM
first of all: i am not sure, if the post is right at this subboard. if not: forgive me ;-)
the oa-league has started an some ppl would like to watch the matches live.
is there some (hidden) function or planned implementation for a kind of oa-tv like other engines have?
iirc oa transmitts the whole gameplay during connection to the client. could it be possible to make a proxy who delays the forwarding to other (sub-)connected clients?

Sounds like a good idea but if everyone tunes into that connection, won't it bog down the match? I think the OA-CL post all of the demo for each match. It'll be on their site. :D

no.. it doesnt affect the match when one person sends the stream to the host. ive done this for defrag maps in the past.

I'm also interested in such features.

I'd like to see some feature to save the demo server side, maybe it already exists
The problem with being able to spectate matches is : you can help someone while spying other players.
However it's still a good idea to be able to broadcast matches.

We have slots for players, for private (players with passwords), we could also have slots for spectators.
