Roadtesting #AdLiberum

QUICKLAUNCH GUIDE:

  1. Goto http://adliberum.com
  2. Enter a username
  3. Use commands to interact / navigate the world..
    • take / drop [object]
    • n, s, e, w
    • ne, nw, se, sw
    • u / d
    • open / close [objects / exits … i.e. open n OR open locker]
  4. Have fun!
  5. Report bugs! 😉

IF YOU ARE THE ONLY PERSON THERE, YOU CAN TEST MULTIPLAYER BY LAUNCH TWO OR MORE TABS WITH: http://www.adliberum.com

ITS ALSO WORTH CHECKING WHAT YOU NEED TO RUN #adliberum multiplayer (single player will be available to all devices)

check:

http://caniuse.com/#search=webrtc to see what devices support WebRTC, the communication technology adliberum uses (currently).


TLDR VERSION:

Ok fair to say massive progress has been made, but largely the new iteration of #adliberum and its engine are going to need a lot of road-testing (predominantly from a multi-player perspective) which you can help with.

First things first you need to understand how it works a little.

Each session (in future) will require a host.

Think of them as GM or Games Master like if you were playing a game of Heroquest or Dungeons and Dragons.

The host handles all the relaying, updating etc.

So when you visit http://www.adliberum.com and launch a session … IF no-one else is there before you, you will automatically be made the host… currently, the host is unable to do anything. In time they will be able to oversee the game.

However IF there is already a host, you will join as a player. You will be placed within the world / location and will be able to interact fully.

However to help test it, IF you’re the only host, you can launch a second or more to actually test it!

SO if you login and find you’re alone to test you will need to Launch three separate copies of http://www.adliberum.com – I do this simply by using 3 browser tabs.

  • 1 for host (which I minimise in background)
  • 2 players for testing.

HOW TO START A SESSION:

Currently the default map is an Abandoned Factory (map name 0666)

Once you’ve loaded you then need to enter your username OR any of the currently available prefab call-signs from the table below AND hit ENTER.

badmek, benix, carter, deleon, farias, h, hack, hale, sadie or sharpe

Then once you’re in you’ll be presented within the map and you will see your playing piece on the map! No-one else will show (as currently they won’t show until they make their first move — over time this will be affected by your knowledge of them / their last recorded location [that you are aware of] )

Once you’re in you will be able to interact with the world with various commands (available) listed below for you to reference.


BASIC COMMANDS AVAILABLE

also work long i.e. north

  • take / drop [object]
  • n, s, e, w
  • ne, nw, se, sw
  • u / d
  • open / close [objects / exits … i.e. open n OR open locker]

When moving around the map OR performing actions, you send messages to the host who broadcasts the message to all those in the area to update them of the map changes.

Have fun, but remember I’m looking for bugs, so please feel free to pass them my way!

Best, Liam

KNOWN ISSUES:

* It’s very early access! Don’t expect polish… just yet!
* The map won’t currently update for new players joining a game where changes have been made.
* Using your own nickname/s doesn’t work (currently) and will make you invisible to the game.
