Yeah eSFML uses OpenAL as far as I know, but I didnt't had a closer look at the sound API.

Finally the new codebase is nearly completed. With a fancy online-mode!

Because it's my first server-software and multithread application I want to do a stress-test to see if the server works correctly.


The server will be running from 25.10.2013 19:00CET until 27.10 19:00CET. I will also set up a teamspeak channel to speak about imrpovements.

I will upload the kroniax binaries at 18:00CET (Windows and Linux 64bit)

Now Kroniax online (test) is live  ;D

Sadly i was too stupid to compile it under Linux (reference errors) so I can only provide the Windows binaries. But you can download and compile the source by your own!


How to:
Enter the multiplayer part -> enter a name -> select the "Test-Server" and have fun!

Feeback:
*Or post it here!

Controls:
Tab-> show scoreboard
Space -> steer up
Left -> brake
Right -> accerlerate

Links:
Windows: http://zippyshare.com/AlexAUT/mozjaf6e/dir.html
Source (for linux): https://github.com/AlexAUT/Kroniax/tree/multiplayer-test


Have fun with it and try to beat me when i'm online  :)

P.S. I will add more maps soon! (Currently 7)

Wow this really is hard.  I think that's my limit for today.

The core gameplay certainly seems perfectly functional.  Quite a few times I saw other arrows (including you) zipping past me, so the networking part seems fine too.  Definitely a lot of little things that can be improved though:

- A couple times I accidentally bumped something and the Kroniax window lost focus, at which point collision detection stopped, so my arrow fell out of the level instead of crashing.
- Seems like there should be a progress bar at the bottom telling us how close we are to the end of the level.  Maybe make it a full-blown minimap?
- It'd be nice to see the current score table after each death so I know how badly you're beating me =P
- There should be a simple chat system so I can type "HOW DID YOU DO THAT IN 34 SECONDS!?" at the end of the map.
- The controls get weird/unresponsive if I'm going up or down at a sharp angle.  In particular, the left arrow makes me turn to the left instead of slow down during that sharp climb on the gray level, and in the sharp fall afterward I have to hold space for almost a full second before I actually start tilting up.

Hey thanks for your feedback!

Already fixed it. I will update it during the next hours with a network improvement as well.

Will implement a progress bar. A minimap is not needed (wait for the next chunk of levels and you will see why)

Isn't pressing tab enough?

Is on the ToDo-list


The problem with you last point is that holding left is not only braking, you can go the reverse direction... I will try some things to improve it.


btw sry for my "good" times, but I have so much practise 8)

Derp.

Maybe add a prompt for that on the death screen to jog my memory? lol

Holy shit did I just beat you on the gray level? O_o

Oh, and naming the levels would be cool.  Referring to them by color isn't that extensible.

Not doing a thorough test or anything, but the audio volumes defaulted to 0 for me on this build.  Oh, and I can still trigger the falling out of the level bug by right clicking on the title bar (ha!).  By the way, is 36.something on the yellow level a non-terrible time?

Audio volume: forgot to change it...

Rightclick on the titlebalbar doesn't trigger a window lost focus event, so will have to implement something like a ultra low fps detection or start using fixed time stamps for the movement -> collision...

Thanks for your testing! I think 36 is a good time. , not quite sure. I only know for the red level i got 8,4 seconds... Godlike  8)

Next patch I will implement a global time list for every map, so you can compare your times even if you are alone on the server.
And i will also add a simple chat system.

lol, don't worry too much about that one.  It's probably not worth the effort to work around since no one should really be doing that anyway (and it's not like I'm getting record times with this "cheat").

I am going to try the multiplayer as soon as I can.

I tried to fix your button, as the one in the main page doesn't work and you have to click on the link
