Server Emulator

Postby Finito » Sun Jan 18, 2009 10:40 pm

A server emulator is currently in active development being based on the current server software.

It has been in development for fair while since around 29th September 08 thats why there has been a lack of posts on development etc.

Hopefully in the near future will get an emulator test server setup, allowing it to be tested and bugs found and fixed etc.


Will update post with more info later...

Well since you can never completely reverse assembly(binary code) to the original source code it once was all you can do is to make a new program that works in the same way as the first did thus you emulate it.

thus giving more control over it, and the ability to add more features more easily than direct 1p1 manipulation

Currently its going to be mimimicing the current system but potentially could move away to other types of DB.

Starting from tonight i will start to post change logs for the development of the emulator. (Should have been done earlier i know.)

The logs are little technical but i hope will still be useful for those who just want to know whats currently happening and if development is still continuing.
