Friends Tab in AtariOS Available

Recommended Posts

Friends Tab in AtariOS Available, details follow.
You can already add friends, send messages, and more will follow.
The system update today enabled this, and should now support this in games.

You can search by partial name, rather than a complete match, thankfully.
My username is... guess.... JustClaws. 🙂

I already added a friend on there. It's a really neat feature and I love that we have profiles. I just wish we could actually view our own though. 

 

The on-screen keyboard is cumbersome to me when messaging, but thankfully a physical keyboard works just fine.

I really like it so far, good that Atari added this feature and hopefully they integrate it into some games soon!, I feel it would work well for Utopos. I’m really liking the Atari OS more and more these days it all seems to be going in the right direction to be honest so looking forward to seeing what other features get added in the future.

Now they just need to add an Achievements/Trophy system and online multiplayer support. What they could've done with their casino business was incorporate that into the VCS as players could compete against each other and win real money for things like a Centipede or Missile Command tournament, or add virtual slot machines and online poker tournaments.

They're coming... from what I read... but games need support.
Online multi-player already happens in Utopos, because games can use any back-end they want. 🙂

Achievements would so cool to have! It'll definitely provide more replay value. Where did you read that this feature was coming?

 

I would love to see the following games receive this feature on VCS:

Atari Vault 

Danger Scavenger

Ato

Centipede: Recharged (already there, but in-game only)

Sir Lovelot

Missile Command: Recharged (I 100%ed it on Steam, but would do it again on VCS)

Frog Hop (I already 100%ed it, but would do it again for achievements)

Sigi

Anyone know if there is a way to change your user ID? I didn't really care before, but now that the Friends tab is there, I'd rather have something cooler than my first name followed by a bunch of random numbers.

My username is also killersquirel on Antstream. You can follow other players on there. I am not sure if you can challenge followers, but there can always be some friendly competition on here.

Pretty sure my name there is the same as it is here.  I should play more games...

 

I also want to know.. who has all those high scores on Antstream?  I swear there are bots for some of them... then again I watched a video of a dude playing Dig Dug on youtube and realized I have been playing it wrong all these years!

I have (or at least had) the high score in Satan's Hollow. I haven't checked in awhile. My username on Antstream is also killersquirel.

Mine is Paul7462. I’m hoping getting some friends on there will force me to spend some more time playing games!

You WILL play with me!  Ha, most of my game time is with my brother on the PS4.  Yesterday we played a full 8 hours of Ghost Recon: Wildlands... did a boss mission and the stupid game glitched and would not me stow the guy I grabbed onto the helicopter to extract him.  Then he died while I tried to shove him onto a boat. 

Second attempt worked fine, I cheesed that one by wiping everyone out in a helicopter though.  Wasted a lot of time for a bug. 

One thing that is nice about going back to simpler games is they are less likely to bug out on you in such ways!
