Improving network support

Item posted by Ben Asselstine <benasselstine> on Tue Feb 22 00:05:29 2011.

Lots of progress is being made in making LordsAWar playable over the network.

Here are two videos showing the progress:

The videos show computer players sending the events over the network, that subsequently get displayed on the host's screen. (The computer players in this case don't have a screen of their own).

There is still a lot more work to do, but thanks to these industrious computer players, most of the network interactions are already tested.

Also you can see that there's a fancy new tileset. It was created by David Baumgart specifically for this project.

Packagers of LordsAWar will be interested to know that the deprecated gnet library has been expunged from the codebase, and replaced with gio calls.

If you'd like to help test network play before the release of version 0.2.0, just send me a message by clicking on the link below:
