Summary 0003480: Optional simplification of Create Game box
Revision 2018-09-28 19:21 by Zalewa
Description Create Game box is a rather powerful tool that will force everything that's in it upon the game. It cannot help the player in a case where that player just wants to launch the game with selected WADs and drop to the title screen. It should be possible to disable (with checkboxes) certain features of Create Game box so that the game is started with a smaller list of arguments.

1. Each page should have a "(do not) use this page" checkbox.

2. It should be possible to drop into the game's title screen. Unfortunately each game here may be different in that regards. Let's at least ensure that the Doom trio can do that (Chocolate Doom, Odamex, Zandronum). Done as 0003505.

3. Play offline/Create server duality needs some separation. There are some items in the box that only make sense when you host a server - UPNP, broadcasts, port, connect, join and rcon passwords. Moreover, some games (depending on a game and OS it runs on) may use different executables for hosting a server and for an offline game. Possible solution for this duality is to introduce a switch of some kind to the Create Game box that will put it into one of the definite modes: offline or server. As most options will be the same, it should be possible to dynamically switch between the two modes without losing any of the previously input data.
