Hey there fellow sierra game players.
I know it has been a few months since i posted anything on here, so here it is.
I've spent most of the free time i have working on the Half-Life downloadurl patch.
Progress is very good, I have the functions working correctly with the game and just need to finish the actual http request/download, Im sure There is a simple http/download C++ library somewhere, any suggestions?
Not a whole lot has been done to the server code, it is all working together nicely. I have worked a little on the authentication server, adding hl1 crc checking and a few other fixes to homeworld's protocol
Soon we will have our first host thanks to: Phorce Phed
I will post a complete list of compatible games.
(In order for all games to be supported I need to spread the server's out between 2 or 3 more hosts. Each game uses 1-4 routing servers for chat/match making.)
Hopefully someone will give me a hand with code, I need to organize everything better and another hand would be useful.
