About the OS IMVU uses, I believe it's Linux.

Anyway, I'm all in for this idea!

I don't know about that. However I seem to recall a friend of mine who only uses Linux, he had to tweak the whole thing a lot to run the 3D client on his Linux system.

With so many games out there (and a hellton of them being free, or at least virtually free), why should IMVU turn into one of them?

Adding to what iShatteredSanity said...

1. OS....If IMVU is using Linux then why have I read posts on the forums about those who use Linux having to use workaround and tweaks just so IMVU can run on their PC, if I had guess the OS that IMVU is using could be Windows, but who knows.

2. The video game aspect...IMVU is chat site, not an MMORPG and there is no need for it to become as such.

I would guess that many things that allow us to play here is the client connecting to IMVU servers that run some flavor(s) of Unix.

Running the IMVU client on Linux, or any other flavor of Unix on a PC is a horse of another color Smile.

I'm just going to add a little highlight of the main reason i will never agree to this. aside from the issues this will cause the serves and the cost to obtain permissions, code and whatnot. just no.

Hmmm I've been thinking ;
1.in regard those who use laptop that are not supporting 3D graphic
2.in regard those user who are new to computers do not know about
computer fragment problem and how to do defragment process,
3.in regard those thinking the city internet are the same speed as the
country side internet speed or misunderstand lag and disconnect or worst
thought of it as crashes came from imvu client but really it just problem
of your own IP subscription internet connectivity integrity,
in case of you do not know about internet speed range, computer
fragment and defregmentation, Computer RAM requirement for
overloaded Computing task, disconnected or crash some cases it has
nothing to do with bugs error on imvu.

all cases above must be display as warning or alert

In relation with case above and with my suggested FPDSS games
I suggested for my future suggested games
install imvu 3D chat only
install imvu with games(while installation select games)
Install IMVU with games. in future if there is more people come and develop their own game, some paid game may require download while executing the IMVU client program.

Riddle me this; riddle me that:

Since there are tons of options out there for FPS, TPS, etc etc games, with a great deal of them being free, or at least virtually free. Games that can be customized or modified, games made from people who make games and not some Frankenstein creations, games that have decent customer support, also games with at least most of the necessary requirements to be played online or offline.
Why, oh why, should IMVU turn into a video game when IMVU is a chatting site with a 3D platform and some extras?
This is what I do not understand. Why should IMVU change completely? This makes little to no sense at all. So, OP, could you please be so kind and explain why should IMVU turn into a game when there are so many options (and free or virtually free ones) out there that offer customization and modification?

Do tell me,

Are you aware on how much this would cost IMVU? How much Re-coding this would need? How Laggy and Crowded this would make the Server?

Are you also aware on How Little amount of People will use this? Users can't just magically get speedy internet or Gaming computers.

IMVU is a Chatsite. If you want FPS games or whatever, Stick to consoles.

When if this paper work given permission to be executed with all fund, financial resources necessary to make the game, Priority thing to do is the data path , data flows made in such way if there is error or crashes it will taken on the game not the client Assuming IMVU will still support Client Version.

Ahoy I'm Back, ready to continue the programming work on Multiplayer shooting game for imvu. Second free open license for any other game developer to derive the ideas from Arumiel FPDSS.

Please have a read and support saying "yes i like to play multiplayer shooting game using imvu avatars outfit that i save play it with Arumiel FPDSS game style" woohoo fun stuff yeahhh!!!!

There is idea to solve lag with different outfit being synchronized loading before start playing, you can skip other people outfit and set them to standard avatars in Arumiel FPDSS game (generally the standard appearance is urban special force like ranbowsix seige) This way you get to enjoy the game quicker less lag also there is setting provided to option to force stop any graphic particle that may not be calculated very well with your computer graphic card that may be in use by other future participant.

Ditto. What is wrong with practicing the art of conversation sans violence? Take the violence elsewhere... there's plenty of other places you can satisfy that carnal desire Rolling Eyes

With IMVU pushing NEXT so hard, I highly doubt that they will ever do a separate client that will be the video game edition.
Plus like it has been mentioned times, and times, and times, and times over again, money, lots of money is needed. Would you like to pay for it?

And every time you are back you come back with even more disregard for the facts that people present. But anyway.
As for the "programming work" you speak of, you really have no idea about what programming is, do you? Because all that listing you did in the other pages, yeah, just try and put those things in the program and see what comes up.

People will support if it they want to. Asking, or rather wanting people to just support it especially when tons of flaws have been pointed out, that is not how things should be done.

Since you obviously have no idea about the many forms of lag, allow me to educate you.
First of all, there is the most common lag from the internet connection.
Second is the lag from the system inputs (keyboard, mouse).
Third is the lag from outputs (monitor[s]).
Fourth is the human element.

Moving on with the matter at hand, the system requirements.
There are some games that are not as system hungry as they seem. But they all need a decent GPU and CPU. And since decent CPU and GPU are needed, a decent Mobo is also needed. And since a decent Mobo is needed on top of a decent CPU and GPU, decent RAM is needed. And to add to that, and SSD is also needed; preferred, but not demanded.
Open world games tend to be very taxing on the CPU, for example GTA V, Witcher 3. The CPU loads and renders the whole area that can be seen, while the GPU renders the imagery on your (general your) screen.

Now, enough with the technical stuff above. Let's focus on the "solution" you speak of.
Decent internet speed is needed in order to load an outfit/appearance. The process is the same as it is right now. And this whole "load before the game", that can not be true for a simple reason: people may walk in a session while it is still ongoing.
But I am confused about something. Since you want a video game with the looks of IMVU's avatars, why "skip" the loading of someone else's outfit/looks? It makes little to no sense, unless what you actually mean by your idea is "A way for me to play a game using my own avatar. I don't care about the others.".

Please do not try and get technical when it is obvious you do not know what you are talking about. Stopping the rendering of a scene does not equal to no lag at all, it will create other issues like frame dropping, screen tearing, CPU throttling, RAM abuse, and, wait for it, ~ba dum tsssss~ LAG!
I have been playing enough games for a long time now (mostly on PC) to know that it is not a good advice to skip loading the graphics in a scene, or how bad the graphics looks when the drivers are not the latest ones. I am sure that some fine people can back me up on that drivers issue.

Last but not least.
As it has been said also times, and times, and times over again, IMVU is a chatting site with a few bonuses in the form of games in the client; just like facebook. I am sure that the overwhelming majority of IMVU users does now wish for IMVU to turn into a game. And to quote Jeff Goldblum's character, Dr. Ian Malcolm:
Quote:
Yeah, yeah, but your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could that they didn't stop to think if they should.

However in this case it is neither should, nor could.

Even if they don't provide games perse for IMVU (which they don't HAVE to considering this is a "social/site" not a game persé) they could still make a little program in which u can export ure avatar info (clothings and overall looks) elsewhere... it wouldn't be so hard for expert programmers to do and since it would just be exporting the info it wouldn't be as difficult as creating a whole game AND it would be great for IMVU in terms of business... imagine playing mk or injustice mobile with ure cool looking character... or eventually if the program hits and expands (which it has huge chances to) playing a platform game like grand theft auto or skyrim etc with ure own avatar... or a game like tekken, injustice or MK where when u play online ppl look at ure avatar and wonder why it's so different and whatnot... they'll ask u where'd u got it from and once u tell'm many will want to make their own, giving imvu business and money which makes worth it the money time etc used to making the app... i myself have wasted more than $800+ Throughout my time on imvu... and i know of many who make what money i've wasted look like nothing so imagine how much more would ppl waste if they could use their avatars on games... hell even if they develop it as an app to add-on elsewhere and u had to pay/buy the app persé i know many ppl like myself who'd be more than interested... even if many of the ppl' don't use imvu to chat and just use it to make their character for the game they'll still have to buy earning imvu business... i know I'DE buy it... this is a great option for ppl' who don't know how to make mods or don't want to risk legal problems like for instance a company sueing u for using their character on something that is not their game via mod because u OWN ure avatar and EVERYTHING it wears... u BOUGHT it after all. And as long as u don't use something whith copyrights like dressing ure avi EXACTLY like something from another actual game (for instance my character looks like a ninja/demon but he is original and doesn't look like something ripped from elsewhere because it is just a combination of different clothing that wasn't ripped/copied out of anything that had existed already) there shouldn't be any issues... i know many ppl' would like this
