The Movie Theater is the main space for movie nights. This is a safe zone where everyone can sit down and relax without having to worry about getting killed.

The Knife Pit

Try out your melee skills in this PvP-specific arena located right outside of the main lobby.

Warning, this is not for the faint of heart, as there are quite a lot of talented players around the server that know many ways of killing, even with just a knife.

Cinema:

Swamp Cinema requires a few steps to be done first to ensure full functionality.

Initial Steps:

You need to make sure that you are on the x86-64 – Chromium + 64-bit binaries beta for Garry’s Mod and that the Garry’s Mod: CEF Codec Fix is applied to your game.

The steps to take are listed by pressing F2 while on the server.

Queuing Videos:

Once those 2 steps are done correctly, the server will offer you many possibilities

that you will not find elsewhere across Garry’s Mod.

Garry's Mod Swamp Cinema The Full Experience

These options involve YouTube’s entire spectrum of functionalities, including its HTML5 videos and YouTube live streams.

(Thanks to the codecs patch made by WinterPhoenix96, who is known to be the Lead Developer behind the YukiTheater)

If these are not enough, there are also possibilities of queuing videos from different hosting services such as:

-Youtube,

-Twitch,

-Dropbox,

-RTMP servers.

Setting up your own RTMP Server:


Make sure to follow the server’s rules when queueing content. If you have any doubts, please ask a staff member for clarification on the content before queuing the content.

If you need help setting up the RTMP server, just go in the request page in-game, click the HLS livestream section which redirects to Echo’s guide[web.archive.org].

RTMP Servers can bring you alot of flexibility, but at a certain cost.

You will first need to rent an Ubuntu 20+ machine hosted by a service like:

-Vultr

-DigitalOcean

-Aruba Cloud

Which will both enable you to livestream and play large mp4 files as illustrated in the following graphs:

Earning Points and Activities on the Server:

Outside of its advanced media system, what makes Swamp Cinema so popular and addicting is the side activities players can participate in when they no longer feel like watching videos. Points enable many forms of entertainment. Listed below are various ways to earn, spend, or gamble points on the server.

The Pointshop:

The pointshop can be opened by typing !shop or by pressing C. Points are earned every minute just by playing on the server. One of the more popular methods of earning points is to stay connected to the server, even while not actively playing. You can see how many points you earn every minute in the bottom left corner of the pointshop. This is where you will be able to buy various items such as:

  • Toys
  • Weapons
  • Construction items
  • Playermodels
  • Swag items

Golfing:

Golfing is a very simple way to initially earn points when you start on the server.

Golf has easy mode and hard mode. Hard mode will reward you with more points, but it will be more of a challenge. If you can complete the holes in 2 strokes or fewer, you will have plenty of points to start with. Golf resets once a week.

Minecraft (basically):

In Minecraft, you can build structures or mine for points.

Iron, Gold and Diamond ores will spawn around the mines, and will reward you with points when you mine them with a pickaxe. You will earn 200 Points for mining Iron, 1000 points for mining Gold, and 5000 points for mining Diamond.

Gambling – Rolling:

Gambling is also a part of the server in a multitude of ways.

The most simple form of gambling available is the rolling system.

To win a roll, you must get dubs. This means having the last two digits of the randomized number be exactly the same. If you win, your reward is your bet multiplied by 10.

Otherwise, your points are lost. It is also possible to get trips, quads, quints or even sexts, by matching more than just the last 2 digits. These won’t give you an extra reward, but it does look cool.

Gambling – Lottery:

Another form of gambling present on the server is the lottery system.

Every player places a certain amount of points in one big pot, which

determines their overall luck in winning the lottery.

Bounties:

One way to earn points that challenges your skill can be collecting bounties

By killing someone with a bounty, you earn those points. To view the list of bounties on people and their location, type !bounties. If you want to see the bounty of a specific person, type !showbounty <player>

You can also set a bounty for someone, or everyone! Do !bounty <player> <amount of points> or !bountyall <amount of points per person> if you wanna give everyone a bounty.

‘KEK’ Temple:

The KEK Temple is an underground place you will discover while exploring the labyrinth. If you don’t know where the labyrinth is, you can find the entrance in the Sewer Tunnels, Minecraft, the Trumppenbunker, or Kleiner’s Teleportation Portal.

An Idol will spawn once every hour, and upon collecting it, you’ll have 100 seconds to traverse through the labyrinth back onto the surface. The maze doesn’t change, so the easy way to do this is to preemptively map out the maze to find the fastest route.

You will receive 100,000 points upon successful completion. However, if time runs out, the idol will crumble to dust!
