Re: Server lightweight mode

Maybe it's worth connecting to the server for a day and logging the command breakdown (e.g. 25% CLIENTSTATUS, 10% BATTLEOPENED, etc) to see what's worth optimizing for long-running connections. I'd recommend optimizing the new user connect, as that's probably the most bandwidth-expensive thing. When...

In the literal sense, there are currently 8 forum admins. Of those, only 4 have logged in within the last year or so (let alone done anything adminy).

Re: About moderator policy

I wonder what is the correct place and way to discuss moderator's actions? I mean, many of these actions are subjective and then there's usually no point in messaging the moderator in question directly, and some of them rarely respond anyway. I'm not saying anything against any particular moderator...

Re: lobby server<->client protocol encryption

Aw, the PyCrypto AES-GCM stuff is just in the alpha 2.7 release (2.7a1). Serious question: considering Heartbleed, do you still trust the entire TLS implementation in openssl, which (despite having absolute experts work on it) by all accounts is a really scary giant ball of spaghetti-C? Heartbleed w...

Re: lobby server<->client protocol encryption

If I'm coming off as harsh/aggressive, it's nothing to do with you/Spring. I'm trying to strike a nerve because this is crypto. You did quite a few things right, but screwing up crypto code is one of the easiest things for programmers of any skill level to do. The comment was in reference to an atta...

Re: lobby server<->client protocol encryption

TL;DR: Great intentions, but use TLS and bcrypt/scrypt instead. Context: my day job is software security. Password hashing If you have a bunch of spare bitcoin miners to throw at the DB, yes. This is an easy mistake to make. bcrypt and scrypt are tunable algorithms. The needs of a password hash are ...

Re: Implementing a feature selection

I reimplemented selection logic in SmartSelect, including an engine patch to fix "my selection works badly when any of the four corners of my rectangle go outside of the bounds o the map" (use the includeSky boolean on TraceScreenRay). It might be useful as a reference: http://springrts.com/phpbb/vi...

Re: PING/PONG

I think it would resolve both the player and host issue with battles if the server kicked any user from their battle after a reasonable idle time - when it would've normally kicked them from the server. "Ghost" users should also have their clientstatus set to away, which could be done by the same ti...

Re: Enable WebSockets (ws) protocol for lobby API

1. Open a socket on another port (maybe just continue the trend and use 8202+) 2. Add this port to startup options and help. 2. Modify Dispatcher to take multiple server sockets, each paired with a callback that creates and returns a new Client-compatible object. 3. Create a new Client-like class ab...

Re: Joining multiple chans

You can't join multiple battlerooms with the current protocol (even if the server were modified to allow you to exist in multiple battles) The protocol doesn't have a prefix for *which* battle when sending you battle commands... so you can see "user X said something in the battleroom" but you can't ...

Re: FXAA

SMAA looks good for everything but pixel shifting/walking in the distance - when they show real-game scenes, only the CSAA/SSAA 16x filters get it right.

It's really distracting to have artificial motion in the background :)

https://github.com/lunixbochs/uberserver is the lobby server running on springrts.com.

Re: Lua IDE

I just added Lua support to sublimelint for those of you using Sublime Text 2.

This means inline syntax highlighting, saving you a pesky Spring reload for syntax typos and such.

Re: Problem with TraceScreenRay

If this is implemented I would like to tack on another request. When using tracescreenray on a point outside the map, return a virtual point where terrain would be if it were extended to that point. I already made that patch two years ago - it's how my SmartSelect widget works outside the map. http...
