If AF, while coding Java lobby client made a GUI for lobby server to test it with.
All the better, makes it easier for end-users to run a lan server.
i.e some peep are scared of running things in console
Whats the big deal, we can choice to use either one.
Not exactly something to complain about ?? Find something better todo :)
No reason to switch.
Its just a choice for end-users that setup lobby server for lan games etc.
To either use
GUI or Console version
Some peep are scared of console programs and love GUI instead..
Personally i would use Console version, but then again my windows decided to stop about 2 months ago & i havent been bothered to reinstall it, using gentoo / linux atm.
This version is useful for development and enw users.
I find a Java program ina single file with a GUI with a close button better than a folder of java sources with batch files that show no signs of running unless you try to connect to localhost or open taskmanager.
It also means you can look at the traffic going through in realtime and see any error messages as and when they happen which is very useful for coding.
It also doesnt require you to learn howto use the svn or where to find the lobby server code, just download open and run...
@cleric he is working on java lobby. But either way atm, we need the sync errors sorted out for Linux to play online.
Although a more complex tool for linux to make script.txt for games would be most welcome.
