Hi All, hostuser = Would be nice to see who hosts that game. (just an int the slot (0-7) user0-7 = yeah i plan that, we don't send that that during the whole game just while the game is in lobby (maybe send the whole extended dataset just once?) userstats = Not important, just to see if someone cheats it, so keep it out if you want that minimalistic.
It's not that much data to save wherever, a solution is maybe to send that data somwhere else if kamaze don't want it or the server is overloaded.
