Hamachi Replacement
« on: June 13, 2006, 07:46:17 PM »
Hacker has been talking about making a Hamachi replacement.
My logic is that this will remind him about it everyday and force him to make it.

So get to it hacker!  :angry:

[08:17] <OPU|hacker> honestly i should write its replacement
[08:17] <OPU|hacker> also something that doesnt have to install stupid packet capture driver
[08:17] <CM-Horus> yes you should
[08:17] <CM-Horus> and ill make lovely icons for it
[08:17] <OPU|hacker> thats why it wont run on non 2k/xp
[08:17] <OPU|hacker> well it prolly wont need icons cuz it will just be replacement of a dll
[08:17] <OPU|hacker> so the game will just load it and use it
[08:18] <CM-Horus> k
[08:18] <OPU|hacker> dunno if there will be dialogs tho
[08:18] <OPU|hacker> which might look nicer with some icons
[08:18] <OPU|hacker> there will be a mediation server that it will connect to (which yes, i will opensource it)
[08:19] <OPU|hacker> cuz its a good idea to let people run mediation servers in case the 'main' one goes down
[08:20] <OPU|hacker> basically its a drop in replacement for wsock32.dll which would rewrite the packets and such
[08:20] <OPU|hacker> and use a central server to resolve ip:port's of users
[08:20] <OPU|hacker> to allow the packets to get thru an nat device like a router

/me jumps on the "remind hacker to do stuff to help the community" bandwagon

It would be very good if we had some code in op2 to colapse the unit array, so as to prevent weird graphics overflows and crashes.

Take away his pr0n and maybe he'll get to work on it.
But he has to work on and finish the plugin for his mapper that'll allow me to dominate the world first.
