Max number of ZDoom players

Postby printz » Tue Jun 07, 2011 2:18 pm

What is the maximum number of players allowed in a ZDoom game? I want to define an array in an ACS script whose dimension is the same as the maximum number of players, so as not to risk to overrun it.

8.

32 if you want to keep it open for Skulltag compatibility in the future.

Is 8 the hard coded limit? What about Gzdoom?

Yes. And the same.

Isn't there a constant like MAXNUMOFPLAYERS ? Could be helpful when eventually that '8' could be changed.

Pardon the 4-year necrobump, but it's still 8 right now, right? Has there been any talk about increasing this?

Yes, it's still 8.
It will be increased when Master/Slave is done, I think... (Correct me if I'm wrong, Edward850.)

It'll be bumped whenever it's safe to bump, and everything related to that is designed for the new player count, is the simple answer to that.
No sense bumping the player count if you can't actually spawn that many players. :P
