Recording Demos in Coop Edit, and unspec while Playing Demo.
« on: October 14, 2017, 03:43:25 pm »
just a few tests i did by modifying the source code... I changed the player state while playing Demos from "spectator" to "alive", and removed a line that recognizes if the game mode is coop before recording the demo.


I still do not understand why this limitation exists in the original source code, lols.

These limitation exist because:

1. Coop has no timelimit. The more time server writes demo - the bigger it is. In result we're getting demosize limit exceed or even worse.
2. Editspam, mapfuck, entity spam messages - will make the demo grow faster.
3. A lot of other nuances like: newmaps, correct map state (sendmap/getmap), unsafe for performance stuff (lags, spam, and such mapfuck)
