Could someone please explain to me what the Thing Flag mf_local actually does ?


  • It's used in Doomsday's multiplayer games. A thing with MF_LOCAL is not sent to the clients. It is used for things like visual effects (sparks, smoke) that a client can handle locally on its own since they don't affect gameplay, thus reducing network traffic.

    Thank You.

    So is this flag only for multiplayer? Does it have any use for single player games ?
