I have a friend that has gotten the game already (Preorder) and has confirmed that on the DVD there is dedicated serverfiles for communities to setup servers biggrin.gif

I have not gotten the requirements for the servers yet, but i can only imagine its massive considering physics and 32 players online at the same time.

But this is good news, this makes it possible for clan wars to flourish and online communities to gather around this great game.
This will be unbelieveable.

Really? Really? REALLY??? WHOOHOO!!!

This makes me happy!

Now the waiting begins for good server-side mods / admin tools (like sourcemod / amxmodx for Counter-Strike)

Yeah so you have a server that is online 24/7.
Which is a big difference compared to consoles where the game ended when the host decided to eat dinner tounge.gif and unstable connection would ruin the overall experience. With a dedicated server you have a machine dedicating its power to this server, so the experience for you should be excellent all the time.

And for clan wars you could setup your own private clanserver for members to practice on. So thats why so many of us wanted this, and i am glad Rockstar did it smile.gif Unless my friend is joking then i will kill him ... I am asking for screenshots now and i will post as soon as i get them.

It would be insane for something so powerful and 32 player to never have dedicated servers, I always thought its going to be with GTAIV and if not now with a patch update so cool.

Maybe you should have posted "official" once you got the screens etc, you might get slated for it if your mates in correct, if he is can we all kill him?

Two hours later, no screenshots.

I'm waiting for a more reliable source to confirm this, we've had people on this forum saying they're friend worked at nVidia or something and confirmed GTA IV PC would not come until 2010 or something ridiculous. We all know the truth to that one. wink.gif

I think the original poster has set him self up for a fall if he doesn't commit to his posts details and promises, knee jerk reaction posts are not wanted here, but then again maybe hes delayed with real life.

Maybe he got the screens and then said to his mate, "you idiot! this doesn't prove anything .... " and ran under a rock biggrin.gif

"CONFIRMED" and "Coming in 1 or 2 minutes" are a sure fire way to get slated when you dont pull it out the hat for people.

Yeah, I've got a "friend" who "says" that dedicated servers will be awesome.

Really?

No, but really? A "friend" ?? Who "says" ??

How did your friend confirm this information?
Just because he pre-ordered the game that's no confirmation of nothing. A lot of people pre-ordered the game, including myself.

I call bullsh*t.

The DRM should prevent playing until release day?

I couldnt imagine hosting a 32 man match. That would be so laggy. So i'm willing to bet it has dedicated servers. If the max was 16 then no, but 32 seems like a must.

Remember that since BF1942 (yes more than 3 years ago) it has been possible with good results. Although not in a full city, there was/is a lot more to compesate for ?

Great work mate, you start a thread "CONFIRMED" now cant reach your "mate" and now asking anyone else1? ... what a pointless thread. Its as confirmed as your mate says without you having 100 percent info to "confirm" his confirmation = just as "un"confirmed with or without this threads existence.

Why oh why start this thread without YOU the thread starter having the info first hand .... suicidal.gif I can feel the slow draining of credibility oozing from your avatar.
