rom server emulator: lets play begin

Started development of it. Just for fun and better understanding of the RoM network protocol.


Updates: v 0.1, v 0.2


Progress:


  • account creation
  • server configuration (servers count, type, addresses, channels count etc.)
  • loginserver completed
  • load balancing server works (ofc, it doesn't do a real balancing, it just switch to the 1st working gameserver)

Main game server progress:


Now I research the character stats data (e.g. roledata), which have around 76 KB size and contains almost all (about 95%) information about playing character: stats, money, quests, skills, professions, inventory, pets and many many other.

Written in C++11 (with TR2.Network library like Boost.Asio), serverside scripting by Lua and databases simply at SQLite (its enought for proof of concept).
