Game hosting + replay watching at the same time

Postby speed2 » 27 Apr 2017, 21:22

Thanks to the Downlord who told us how to make this possible.

!!!This works only for replays you have downloaded (launching from the file, NOT through FAF)!!!

You need to locate your game.prefs file
Code: Select all
C:\Users\%UserName%\AppData\Local\Gas Powered Games\Supreme Commander Forged Alliance

and add following there:
Code: Select all
debug = {
    enable_debug_facilities = true
}

Spoiler: show
I't not part of any other table you already have in the file, put it at the bottom

That will allow you to run multiple instances of FA at the same time, which also includes hosting a game and watching a replay at the same time.

Quick question - what level does the debug statement go at?

For the

debug = {
enable_debug_facilities = true
}

what line should it go on? Nested in the profile node, between line 1 and 2? In the profiles or options nodes?

I just put it at the end of the file.
So not nested at all.
And it worked.

Is it to much to hope for that this can be integrated in a way that allows watching live replays while hosting? aka through faf?

I guess someone who can develop it must think it is a good idea for it to happen tho.. :)

Not without significant refactoring of the part of the client that handles launching FA - you're free to try though :)
