Currently working on a Multiplayer Lobby system, and I really want to get something similar to what Gears of War does with it’s multiplayer system. Essentially as soon as you hit the menu, you can invite players to ‘join’ your session, at which point in teams of up-to five players you can find other sessions to join.
Has anybody had much experience doing anything like this? I’ve looked at the UT Hub stuff but it looks fairly different and it’s bloody hard to warp your head around for the not-so-seasoned pro. Can you merge MP sessions with other sessions but retain your ‘Party’ so-to-speak?
Any pointers or info regarding this would be mucho appreciated
