Onlive / Cloud Processing

6 posts in this topic

I understand that there may be limited information about this, but, what chance is there that FM13 will be available through OnLive or similar? The ability for "instant processing" through back-end cloud / server setups really appeals to me and I would happily pay a monthly fee for the privilege.

I like this idea and it could be useful for getting the full FM game on to tablets.

I think that is a long way off. Mainly for the same reason Steam cloud isn't enabled for the game, there is just far too much data for a 'normal' internet connection.

You wouldn't transfer the whole data processing job back and forth though - everything is done back end and the FM12 "client" on the user's computer is basically just a dumb terminal, displaying the results via a stream from the server.

If you look at the OnLive service you will see what I mean.

Exactly. Only downside would be that you can't change anything in the editor. Or maybe you could select your own editor changes xml file?
