It's nice someone can modify CS2D, have a good luck buddy.

Off topic: @user Gaios: did you mean "to 255", not "up to 255", you know it why. 4 bytes- integer doesn't support up to 255.

11111111 bits = 255
00100000 bits = 32

EDIT:
Some proofs:

It is mentioned almost every year. This time no one made a new thread about it so that's an achievement.

Yes, manipulating or writing your own dedicated server for CS2D with its own maximum player count is technically (note its italic) possible, but the limit will still be 32. You can make it seem as if it is higher, but alas it will never actually be so.

The reason being is that CS2D was simply coded that way, you cannot change it nor would it be easily changed by DC. A HUGE amount of code would have to be rewritten and the limit would just be wrong to have higher than 32 anyway. So many people would use it badly.

As user Yates said: The client is not prepared for higher player limits. I'm not sure about the exact amount of code which would need to be rewritten. It's possibly not that much at all but what I definitely know is that some of the higher IDs are internally used for other things. e.g.: In kill messages the same byte value says that you were either killed by a specific player or by a turret (which has a hardcoded ID like 200 and something), gate field, etc.

It's done that way in multiple places to minimize traffic. You can't use the entire "byte-space" of 256 values for player IDs. "Simply" making a server which accepts higher player limits won't work or will at least fail at some point.

You won't get any real benefit from it anyway. Simply increasing the player limit doesn't make it a better game

@user Yates: I'm pretty sure that user DC stated that because there were server-side Lua functions that were limited to 32 numbers.
For example, cs2d lua cmd image is limited to numbers that can't go beyond 100.
However, the packet structure of the game should still send the player IDs within a range of 0 - 255, since IDs are mostly likely going to be sent as a integer number with the size of a byte (the lowest size possible).
I do see creating a dedicated server from scratch a reliable possibility. The hardest part would be to figure out how packet headers are made/sent/received/handled. I tried to make a dedicated server like this before but I couldn't get it working because I failed at that part.

Edit:
@user DC: You ninja'd me.

@user Buksee: Could also add the ability to specify a time for the restart of the round.
@user DC: I apologize for the obsession, but, you do not say anything about the program?! (sometimes I "explode")

@user kerker: Of course, i can.

Btw. Like i said before:
Quote:
fetching data from the running dedicated_server.exe (runs automatically), and send packets(commands like sv_msg2, kick, ban) via UDP packets.

It's just a extension of official dedicated server :'D

@user Buksee: PM = private message? Is it possible without lua-scripts? (see photo in quote)

It's possible to sort maps by type? It would be faster to choose a map for change it.

It would be cool if you added bot menu (adding bot, removing bot, change bot skill, change bot weapons)

You can make the screenshot of the list of bans? I wonder what he looks like.

OFF:
It's not a bug, it is a typo.

I'd prefer it if you would stick to the "standard" menu bar items (File, Edit, View, Tools, Window, Help).

Seeing Server Functions in there along with Switches just seems a bit off.

@user Yates: It'll be the standard sequence, but first i want to make all "main" functions work.
