Multiplayer Game Types

From Bohemia Interactive Community
Jump to: navigation, search

Game type is a simplified category describing what a mission is about. It helps player to navigate through potentially large number of available missions and pick the one they would like to play.

Number of available types is limited to a range of well recognized and easily understandable entries like Deathmatch or Sector Control.

Mission Configuration

Game type can be defined Eden Editor scenario attributes or in Description.ext file.

class Header
{
	gameType = CTF; // Game type, see 'class' columns in the table below
	minPlayers = 1; //min # of players the mission supports
	maxPlayers = 10; //max # of players the mission supports
};

When type is not defined or misconfigured (e.g., using non-existent type), default "Unknown" is used instead.
