Re: Lua lobby?

filesystem security is a different issue. as it stands, a widget with filesystem access could send data over the spring protocol to another player. this has nothing to do with a lua implementation of sockets. if we have filesystem security, the only socket restrictions we need are on services that *...

Re: Lua lobby?

I wasn't advocating handshake as a long-term solution, just something they could implement *now* with the code they already have. and the cool thing about handshake, you don't trust the socket to send data before the handshake is complete (server sends TASSERVER command, client send LOGIN command, s...

Re: Lua lobby?

it's too easy for pure raw sockets to violate sandbox. that's why flash uses crossdomain policy files. requiring a known handshake is a very easy way to respect the sandbox. better suggestions are welcome, but doing something so open we'd either be able to violate the user's trust or require user pe...

Re: Lua lobby?

LuaLobby right now doesn't allow raw message sending, just a few predefined commands. IMO this is a mistake, I'd just handle login using the engine (to make sure they're connecting to a lobby server), and pass raw protocol into lua when it's done. This would even give us full raw sockets for anyone ...

Re: Spammers on forum

when I see a spammer, I:

1. open his profile, view all posts
2. open each post in a tab
3. open the post info on one of them (for the ban interface)
4. ban him
5. click the delete button on each post, ctrl+tab, repeat

doesn't actually take very long

I can move to a real uberserver setup instead of legacy mode if this becomes adopted properly.

Re: Filtering for area orders

SmartSelect runs something like six filters on 5k units with almost zero slowdown in my testing... and the method's already there, you'd just need to change the distance check to a circle for some commands.

Re: Filtering for area orders

the concepts in my SmartAreaReclaim and SmartSelect widgets might help get someone on the right track SmartSelect has some very fast methods of locating and filtering units inside an area. SmartAreaReclaim shows how you can play with area commands as for not duplicating commands, you can just check ...

Re: Bulldozer

imo you might see significant improvements on heavily-targeted apps versus the phenom X4 but most of the current benchmarks have been running on quads and hexcore versions of said quads. I know with eight cores you lose the benefit of unganged memory on a quad (via one stick per core), but these tes...

Re: Bulldozer

one of those sites said a bulldozer octo could easily hit 4.6GHz on air, a decent improvement over the phenom quad (especially considering turbo core)

Re: Dev meeting minutes Monday, 1. August, 2011

big problems with DRM - clients can never cheat beyond info gathering, there are currently a multitude of ways to do that besides using a modified client, and the source is easy to compile.

maybe a separate binary anticheat software could work okay but that's still shenanigans :P
