I am just curious, is it new version that nobody plays or is it just time? I remember playing CS2D back in 2014 and it was an amazing experience with a lot of players. There was actually a huge fanbase. But now in serverlist i see only 2-3 servers with 5-10 players max, all other servers just empty or for other game versions (red id text). What happened?

CS2D needs a redesign. I understand that its graphics are casual, comics and more ... but in fact there are several options available to maintain this style and improve the graphics.

Anyway that is a hobby of Peter, recently he is more and more interested in a survival Stranded, although in business terms CS2D is much more relevant. Moreover, for the viability of all projects, perhaps it would be worth creating a group (team) which will develop Peter’s games and more.

Same. I actually started playing in Early 2014 when beta b.0.1.2.3 was still around, that's when i updated the version to b.0.1.2.4. I remember so many familiar people, so many friends even though i played without an USGN account because back then i did not know how to make one. I myself wish those times came back.

It's an old game. People tend to move on to new stuff. Natural thing.

@user Pagyra: CS2D is at the end of its life cycle. I don't plan major re-designs in future.

I would say the game is still alive, we are playing daily 5on5 mixes. Also we are playing tournaments, look

Well in fact is not DC's problem, only a bit, but you cannot blame him. People make fun by themselves. As long as players see good content, they play it. Just at the period of steam update cs2d has no(not much) good modded servers to being interested of.

Yes, still some old true competitive still play it. I also cannot just leave the game, i even still coding shit and keep making huge mods, but i cannot do much in all aspects due to the available hooks and others.

The game is still alive and DC is still developing it, even if slowly, but i like how last time he answered many suggestions and just in short period answered that those things will be added/changed/fixed. Surely, you cant make him to work on CS2D more than he wanna/can, but anyway as you can see developing is not stops.

By the graphical meaning and it's basic/code thingy - if there are so much of good coders and graphics designers - why dont you make your own cs2d with your own view? lol.

Right now is all in our hands.. Invite your friends, make teams/groups to develop something yours. CS2D has good modding capacity and as long as nobody gives a fck or being lazy to do everything above - the game will look like died.

What do you mean what happened? We are in 2019 and close to 2020. People don't tend to find playgrounds in server lists anymore. People want to see a change, a progression, a next level. And it is apparently not in CS2D. Nobody gets to know about this game's presence. What did you expect?

Not really, what is dying is the crazy custom (shitty) servers. People are playing and enjoying more the standard game mode, which is excellent. I have a WhatsApp group with ~50 old friends that still plays it, I made my forum again (CS2DBR) and people are joinning it, my server fills everyday 20/20 for hours, I'm running sucessful tournaments... at least for me, since the Steam release, the american community is living the best time, maybe not for europeans.

@user mrc: I mean development life cycle. I said that as an reaction to user Pagyra who suggested doing a major redesign. This is not planned because the game itself and the used technology is too old. No sane person would put a huge fancy villa on an old rotten foundation. Also it's unlikely that this would magically attract a significant number of new players (how would new players even know about it?). Same for re-writing the entire game from scratch which is also not planned at the moment and which probably also wouldn't change much regarding player counts.

What I said was entirely unrelated to the active player count or the server situation. Even games which are super old and which didn't receive major updates (or any updates at all) for years can have a lot of active players.

I'm sad about it, I miss it a lot when the game was extremely active, but as @user DC: said, things change, people grow up, I started playing the game in 2008 at just 11 years old, today I don't have it anymore I do not dedicate any time to any kind of games, but I still play sometimes with the Brazilian community, mix matches and etc... the funny thing is that we are all adults with our commitments, the fact that we still play sometimes is for the consideration of the game, it's a great game.

but looking at it another way, i see a lot of potential yes in cs2d, whether or not it is a spin-off of one of the biggest games of all time and nowadays, i believe that with a certain investment could give Sure, adding it to steam was a big step, more steps can be taken, but it's not up to me or us what the outcome of this game will be.

Sure, the mix servers may be active, but to be honest, who even would want to play them?
Why did u revive the game again?

Once in a while there's one or two nice Standard servers with de_dust2, de_cs2d, de_inferno and so on. Besides that, Minecraft and RP servers are the ones that almost always have players...

I miss the golden days of CS2D with a big and diverse server list. What got me hooked to the game in the beginning were nearly full CTF Construction servers (and the ones with unlimited buildings in later versions), so much chaos and fun!

I still remember that one day during holidays I spent on "HC // Happy Cämper" CTF server. AN ENTIRE DAY I spent playing this one server, the one map. It was utter chaos. And it was fun. I'd not have played so long otherwise

I think there're many factors that lead to sinking player numbers. Now the biggest of them is probably smartphones and the actually idiotic mobile games. Not that they require only the IQ of a monkey to be played - many kids stick with tablets/smartphones instead computers. We, who played CS2D, are people of an old generation. I don't know what needs to happen for kids to love computers again at a young age.

I don't think CS2D is a lost cause, but it has just lost momentum. Forum members are still quite active, despite social networks etc. like reddit who are concentrating more and more people around them. It's like we don't play the game because it seems others don't either. But we would if we changed our thinking.
Or we simply matured. Who knows.

All DC had to do is to advertise cs2d.net community when game got released on Steam, so that newbies could learn about competitive scene, make clans and start grinding.
But, well, we all know how it went

Therefore, I suggest you to create a group of enthusiasts, those who can recreate the game on a new engine, those who can without encumbracy to engage in support, who can improve its idea.
I have not once done a significant modifications of various games (not only for CS2D). Many of them did not have to end in the release version for some reason, of course it's difficult and boring to do it is alone. So in same way the group will be contaminated by the continuation of the CS2D support. For many famous engines, there is a significant number of diverse patterns of close to the CS2D genre in free shared blueprints, so the recreation of the game on a new engine is not a problem, and can be done in a short time.
