Fluffy, sometimes you suck..
There are more than one way to make IVAN multiplayer, he just needs to find a way that works well enough. And if Serefan loves programming so much that he's willing to port IVAN to Java(madness!) then he's probably got enough willpower to try a few different solutions.
By all means, suggest another way for it to work. We have discussed this a few different times throughout IVAN's history, and nobody ever comes up with a decent idea. While I agree that Fluffy is being a little demeaning (like that's out of the ordinary
), he is also right. The only way IVAN will be both multiplayer and fun is for it to no longer be IVAN.
