Dedicated Servers: Updating The Engine

I asked already he said he couldn’t answer specific questions. My guess would be yes as it’s being moved to a new engine. There has to be some sort of graphical improvement.

 

It's not going to a new engine, just an updated version of the Unreal engine.

Yes I’m aware of Wes’s comments.  That’s why in my post I said that Paranoia was either a long way off or cancelled.  That is essentially what Wes said.

I'd say April was about the time I was expecting them.

They rarely get things out on time (no fault of their own - any small team would be the same), so this isn't disappointing to me. 

No updates until they're done is good news, it will give the small "we want more pocket knives" lobby time to adjust to the game changes until it becomes "the norm".

Of course dedicated servers should have been in from day one, but I suspect they just could not budget for it at that time (they're expensive)....the resounding success of the game has made it possible and viable. It was always going to be April at the earliest considering the time-frame. 

No real surprises here.  

April it's not a exact day. In fact, April is the date for update the engine, not for dedicated servers. I just don't know why they would lie to us saying dedicated servers would be from day one.

Yeah, but if they released the game as early acces it wouldn't be in consoles now. That's means the game would have been a failure. You just need to watch Steam player count, is ridiculous.

they could have done game preview on xbox like pubg, dont think ps4 has that though.

I'm a bit too busy to hunt down the quotes - but I'm pretty certain Wes said only PC would have dedicated servers prior to release and even shortly after release...they seemed to change direction with this when it was clear the game had sold very well and I'm guessing their budget then allowed for this to happen. In all fairness to them, I imagine it would've been quite impossible to set up dedicated servers on all three platforms on the budget they had originally before sales starting pouring in. Though, this is just my guesstimate.

So why were you asking it as a question if you already knew it IS a long way off (and likely cancelled)?

Either way, don't expect Paranoia to ever come out. It likely won't.

Looking forward to repairs!

Xbox online play is almost impossible at this point, so I'll try to wait patiently. Thanks for the update guys!

Actually, PS4 is the platform with more players, I don't know why, maybe is just because PS4 have more players than Xbox, and Xbox is kinda busy with PUBG right now.

Fun Fact: PUBG can run like shit and controls can be shit too on Xbox, but guess what, it have dedicated servers.

Nope, there are a lot of pics and even tweets saying dedicated servers would be in all platforms since day one, and there would be S.A servers (at least now there are)

We have a hot fix style patch that will be scheduled for release soon, we’re hoping a day or two, to fix some issues. 

We’ll have more info on the update throughout the process. We cannot give answers for specific questions right now. 

Will this hotfix take care of the Tommy tape bug? It would really suck to not be able to pick up Tommy tapes I find until April.

100% true. PUBG can run like garbage. But the fact I can seamlessly jump in and out of matches quickly is what keeps me playing it.

True, when I play this game, I say: Damn, time to search for a match, let's hope host don't quit. Hell, even when im Jason im kinda afraid host quit if I kill him.

Eh, yeah . . . that's . . . that's what dedicated servers are going to do, so -- yeah, they're working on it.

Maybe I could have worded it better. I was suggesting that we got Part 5 and Pinehurst to distract/soften the blow of the back to back bad news of Paranoia delay and no updates until April.

The game appears to be still selling well on PlayStation currently.

Hopefully it continues.

@ShiftySamurai, I have ask question. You said: Potential for physics improvements and fixes for vehicles, ragdolls, hair, and more Better performance on all platforms.

So, this will be early-alpha version right?

You have made three posts on this forum, and all three have said the exact same thing. 2 of them are only 3 minutes apart. I guess putting everything in italics changes it somehow. Dedicated servers are going to fix it. @ShiftySamurai gave you a broad timeline of when that could be happening. I'm pretty sure that is all of the information you are going to get about it right now.

The staff does ask that you introduce yourself when you join the boards, which you can do here. I don't think you should bring up hosts quitting in your introduction though. It is a well known problem that has been discussed here since last May.

But, that is just a suggestion. Feel free to do what you want.
