Title: [HELP NEEDED] Shuffle function
Post by: Neon_Knight on December 09, 2018, 10:34:59 am
OK, so here's the context:

One of the most recent commits removed the Shuffle function. The reason for its removal, according to Sago, is that it can overflow the network stack and cause the game to crash if used online.

However, Shuffle was a highly requested and is a widely used feature of 0.8.8. So I've created this pull-request (https://github.com/OpenArena/gamecode/pull/51) with the Shuffle function's code, so a solution can be found to its problems.

This thread is open to discuss possible solutions so Shuffle can be re-implemented AND SHOULD BE USED FOR THAT.
