#1: Server-side demos are now a reality Author: GrosBedo, Location: Uh ? o_OPosted: Sat Mar 04, 2017 8:30 pm ---- BIG NEWS! (this is not a clickbait ): server-side demos for OpenArena/ioquake3 are now a reality.
1. All (big) issues have been fixed in my server-side demos patch: movers are correctly replayed, and the patch has been tested for years on my servers (and is being used for a new E+ competition), it worked without any issue. This leads to the release of the first stable release v1.0.0, you can grab it here: github.com/lrq3000/ope...s/releases
2. Another developper implemented the snapshot-replay approach, an alternative approach to my patch. This implements something more akin to a multiview demo than a real freeflying server side demo, but it's also completely server side and mod-agnostic! This is like TheDoctor's patch, but it saves all demos in one file instead of one demo per player, and it has some more functionalities. To grab the diff patch, go here: edawn-mod.org/forum/vi...=5&t=7 (mirror here) and the commands/cvars are here: edawn-mod.org/binaries...e3e-mv.txt

And I'm pretty sure this approach can be translated to newer engines like Doom3 so this would be nice to keep
