Isn't it like, 8 players max? I don't think this would really give you this much trouble.

Plus, Rebellion isn't giving in on the "trend" just because of that, the new one will still have dedicated servers.

I don't think this game even had dedicated servers back in 2000.

Should be an option to change your name to what you want while in-game. With my tag, the name gets cut off and it just looks dumb.

there's a load of lag, which is kinda annoying. i was just on Meat Factory and it was absolutely crazy, with 4 marines and 4 predators plus the aliens slaughtering each other. eventually, the predators and us made an alliance and we killed a lot of aliens together before one of them attacked us again.

Few lag spikes but they aren't that common for me. Though there was a brief period in Alien Tag where the alien disconnected mid game so we had no alien, and one never showed up so I left the game. And at one point the chat log kept spamming "has left the game" over and over again.

I had chosen to play as a Marine with flamethrower, but in one life I spawned as a marine with 2 pistols. When I died, I spawned as a marine with flamethrower again. It was in a game mode where I could only play as marine with AI aliens (sorry, don't know what the mode is called).

Thanks so much for this multiplayer beta!

Thank you so much for making this work again!

I've had two crashes so far, in about 2 hours of gameplay. Both occurred as an Alien, during a immediately after a tail kill.

EDIT: There were trainers out there with species change on them (And a bunch of other stuff I'd rather the community not have access to using, ie; God, infinite ammo, ACTUALY invisiblity, etc)

I'm really hoping someone here can just write a nice Species change/grapple/jetpack only trainer.

This is everything I remember it to be from playing back in the good ol days with everyone on GameRanger using the Mac version. Seriously, everything WORKS, plus we're now actually able to host 8 player games without lag! (Though that could just be the increase in bandwidth...)

Thank you SOOOOO much Rebellion! This is the game that brought me in to mouse and keyboard gaming! I love it! Just add the ability to maybe make private matches or at least have a lobby before the game begins so we can discuss custom rules (VIP gametype) and we're all set ^_^

Hey this is the best thing since... sliced bread!

Two things:
I've twice had a fatal game crash occur when I'm using a charged tail and there are two or more marines (player) in the picture. Both times this happened on subway.

Also:
Why is it that when a piece of an alien is speared to a wall, its 'pheromone aura' is blue, instead of red? Has it always been this way?

Plus:
for a short time, my game seemed to be getting servers confused, there were maybe three called 'calshones' or something and the game kept trying to add players from what would seem to be a different server, though unsuccessfully. quickly booting them soon after, and the result was an endless page-filling
'Player blank has joined game'
'Player blank has left game'
'Player blank has left game'
'Player blank has left game'
'Player blank has left game'
'Player blank has joined game'
'Player blank has joined game'
'Player blank has joined game'
'Player blank has joined game'
'Player blank has left game'
'Player blank has left game'
'Player blank has left game'
...
And so on. restarting the game a couple times seemed to quite this phenomena.

But HOLY HELL is it fun.

Yeah that was a couple of my buds, we were trying to get a few settings down and had to keep restarting the server because you cant change things ingame.

- Alien not produce damage to Marines, i hitting marines stoped with my tail and claws continuesly and this not dead.

Suggestions:
- Please make diferent windows for chat and for system. Is very difficult follow conversation with all events in the match appearing in the chat.

Yeah but the game could go to 16 players theoretically, right?

Also:
Experienced the fabled 'invisible players' thing.
They aren't so much invisible as they seem to not exist and then suddenly you're health goes down as you hear disembodied pulse rifle fire or something.
a lag thing?

Silly, silly, person.

When you've played the beta, and see no more improvements than the internal browser, new introduced bugs (the "name" bug wasn't on the boxed version of the game...and also there wasn't crashes while playing in MP), and notice everything is just pretty much the same as of the game you've played for hundreds of hours back on time, it's very hard not to think that way.

Anyway, call me silly if you want. People will then begin to wonder who's really "silly" here.

The original game didn't EVEN HAVE INDEPENDENT ONLINE PLAY. ITS A BETA.
The bug and crashes here aren't introduced into the original code, its due to incompatibilities of the original with the new.

Its amazing how much you expected it to magically be a different game...
It should be worth pointing out that its not supposed to be a different game... kinda silly to think that it should...

All your complaints are of the internet online play nature. They're OBVIOUSLY still fixing things up. Its maybe the very definition of beta, even....

I am having a problem here with multiplayer. I can join a server and play against other people for about 1 min. Then everyone just disappears. The scoreboard says they're still in the game, but there's no one running around anymore. And no it's not because the map is so big I can't find anyone. Does anyone know why this is happening. It sounds familiar- I think it might have happened back when the game first came out and I tried to play it online.

No, ignore this. I played that map again today and realised I ran over dual pistols shortly after spawning.

Is it possible to change my name when in multiplayer, or at least extend the name limit in game? I have a long Steam name it it gets cut off, making zero sense when I'm playing with friends.

I doubt all the same team who made the original game is still at Rebellion today. What I mean is, whoever is doing the network code has to learn it from scratch.

Not necessarily true

We’re very pleased with the re-release. We’ve wanted to do it before, but we haven’t had time until lately and it’s great because there are people here like Kevin, who was a programmer on the original and is now the head of programming for the company. He’s actually done a lot of the work on the re-release, so it was really exciting. It’s just a nice gesture for the fans too; to say that AVP 3 is coming and here’s something as preparation; a little blast from the past and it’s dirt cheap too. Costs less than a decent pint of beer and is a damn sight more scary.

Everything works great so far, just wanted to pop in with a quick, small bug report:

I had an issue with closing the chat window in one game last night, and had to manually shut down the game. It was an A vs M vs P death match, if that makes any difference...

Not sure if this has already been asked but how do you setup steam to play the Beta Multiplayer

Steam should automatically update the game to play the beta. Just select "multiplayer" from the AVP main menu.

well the fact that you have a multiplayer tab means your game is most up to date, at the least

doubt it, they are two different versions of the game, technically even they are different games

You have to write SAY in the chat window before you can close it.

is there an issue with routers and/or ports? cos when i make a game, occasionally people will join but more often than not the game can be up for 10 mins + and not a soul to be seen..

other than that, it playes bloody marvellous. you know, i think if they did up the netcode and let us make maps for this, they could have sold it for a tenner and still earnt some cash.

Just played a few games with a bunch of other aussies. Was awesome. I just kept getting this glitch where the chat menu stays stuck on the screen and theres no way to remove it without quiting the game.

Been having this problem consistently, I'm glad to know that at least I'm not the only one though.

I can also confirm the AvP official map pack maps do no currently work with AvPC2K in multiplayer. Could Rebellion consider patching AvPC2K to support these terrific official legacy maps?

During a Predator Hunt mode game:
Bug: My name was permanently changed with someone else's
Bug: As a standard Marine I lost the ability to pick up weapons.

I believe both of these bugs were related to changes to/from a Predator.

Feature Request: Need to be able to change teams/class without rejoining the server.
Feature Request: I'd love a way to only slow down Movement speed, but leave everything else the same.

That's not so much a case of being able to pick up weapons as a respawn problem. It appears that when you get killed as a predator, you respawn as the marine who killed you. In your case, it was a specialised marine who can't pick up weapons. Had it happen to me in an Alien hunt game when I respawned as a pistol marine. Not good.

I can't believe I never realised that. Any idea if that's intentional or a bug? :confused:

I am having a problem here with multiplayer. I can join a server and play against other people for about 1 min. Then everyone just disappears. The scoreboard says they're still in the game, but there's no one running around anymore. And no it's not because the map is so big I can't find anyone. Does anyone know why this is happening. It sounds familiar- I think it might have happened back when the game first came out and I tried to play it online.

Me too. Each time I join the MP, everyone disapears !

Something really strange happened to me yesterday. I'd connected to a couple of multi-player games in order to figure out what modes they were using and, not finding any to my liking, I decided to load a single-player game (Predator Episode I) instead.

I found myself without any AI opponents; the elevator at the end wouldn't move. It seemed that the application was treating this as a multi-player session, because shortly after I started it someone 'joined' the game. The newcomer was however nowhere to be seen and having nothing to do but wander around I aborted and started another one. On this occasion (Alien Bonus II) the game behaved as expected, though for some reason the haloes surrounding enemies kept changing colour...

Update: they're still changing colour. Is this a new feature?

Its ridiculous how fast marines and preds move in multiplayer, you can actually outrun aliens O_o
