First, apologies for last's years absence, I was in the army. And the year before that we had some terrible issues that kind of rubbed me the wrong way, I meant to abandon this.

Prologue:
But then again, I was reminded that this is not my idea, I use a medium made by someone else to project a vision made by someone else. Namely, I use AGS and the Sockets plugin made by Chris Jones and Wyz to help create the result that is the AGS Live Ceremony. Wyz deserves credit for this, the man single handedly made this possible and I get undeserving claps. Also, this wouldn't be possible without bicilotti, even if he wants to be the most annoyingly modest person about this.

So TL:DR, the AGS Awards will be held on that small place that will all have missed.

Updates:
I've implemented stuff that nobody got to see two years ago, and I've also updated several. So here's a list of what's new:

1) Added buttons for turning music and sound on and off.
2) Added loading screen (practically the first AGS loading screen of all time that CJ didn't code)
3) Switched connect after you put the nickname to make sure you don't send too much data beforehand and instead just send them all at once, when you actually join.
4) Reduced the number of commands sent by each client when someone joins from 4 to 0, as a bot (I coded that bastard) now handles data and instead of everyone lagging on joins, now just the guy who joins experiences slowdowns.
5) Screen graphic, awards text and song, properly gets set when you join, without lagging everyone.
6) The ceremony now features Daft Punk and currently 4 new songs.
7) Laugh track
8) Lesbians (you know it)

Life is like an adventure without the pixel hunts.

By the way the live ceremony game completely works through the latest Wine, so anybody who wants to attend the live ceremony from Linux can do so without any problems as well.

Dammit the test starts in 10 minutes and the download takes about 10 minutes :D *crossing fingers*

EDIT: I stayed online for about 20 minutes, and I didn't experience any kind of crash or bug or glitch. Only the lag was causing characters to slightly teleport sometimes, but that's normal.
A small thing to report : the avatar in black suit (I know from what game he is but the name eludes me right now) has a bunch of pink pixels in his "up" walkcycle.

Awesome work!
I didn't experienced nothing bad. No glitches or bugs... except the one Monsieur OUXX already said: sometimes I saw "magenta" in the walk-cycle (UP) of that character. But not when I was using it, only when others were using it.

I must say that it absolutely freaked me out to have all those famous game characters walking around talking to me!

I never thought I would ever see Max walk up to me and say "Hi Mandle how's it goin?"

That's some seriously disturbingly cool stuff!!!

Aaaah!
It was great to see that theater become filled with life - clap, clap, clap -
I was taken by surprise to get on stage
and YAY! - I didn't fell off this time :grin:
So the test was successful - even if I still have to complain the missing step at the microphone ;)

Great work and cool features! 
I am happy that there are guys like you who put their time into it to let the ceremony become true that way again.

Thank you!
 
hope 2 C U all

Thanks for the comments really heartwarming to see people in that room again.
Sorry for being absent after a while I literally fell asleep, but it seemed my client never crashed, so, that's a good thing. Anyhow, the test went well, we found some stuff together and I've fixed them.

Updated:
-Lifted limit of entrants from 60 to 70 (Thanks nemo)
-Fixed a walkbehind issue on the bottom left. (Thanks everyone basically)
-Fixed a music issue, concerning the music being disabled. (Thanks Juani)
-Fixed the issue with cianty's sprite. (Thanks everyone basically)
-Added the following avatars:
 LeChuck, Bernard (DOTT), gabriel night (no typo)
-Fixed the issue regarding nicknames, now the game properly prompts you to put a correct nickname. (Thanks peder)

could you write the download's version in small prints somewhere? So that we know for sure if we need to re-download it or not. Thanks!

but if this update gets a new version number you'll have to totally redownload! If it's the only update you might skip it though, it's a gamble :P

Okay, done a minor update, you should update, and this will be the last update.

wow … this is so incredibly … …
Too much for my limited English vocabulary to find the right word … so just insert something like "awesome", "cool", "groovy" or "stunning".
