hi there there once was a nice site with the documentation of the game lobby http://wiki.widelands.org/tiki-index.php?page=Game+Server+Protocol sadly it's gone (moved?) i can't find it, i read it tons of years ago, now programming a (very) little own game and don't want to repeat all the work, it looked quite good back then.

so can please somebody help me out. is there any lobby documentation? thanks very much!

after some "surfing" and googeling it seems to me that widelands uses the ggz protocol? i just looked at their page, it's really cool and i think i'll use it face-wink.png

Welcome to the forum!

This wiki site has not been brought over from our last wiki, because we in fact never used this protocol. There was just a stub of a server implemented and the client site was never started.

We finally decided to hop on the GGZ bus and have a nice cruise with them. This didn't work out perfectly but it was still the best decision.

ahh i know see it - while reading the dev-documentation there are a lot of 404s :/ seems they're outdated a little bit, hope there are still some guys working on the core features...
