*Yet Another* Master Server Update

Author: StackOverflow » Mon Dec 31, 2012 12:19 am

Just a quick update on the master server.

I just pushed out a new update that features something I hope we will be using in due time.

The other day I reverse-engineered the master server protocols for every game version from 0.1 through 0.76 (except for 0.2 and 0.32 since I don't have the installers). I have since implemented them into the current master server, creating a bit of a "hybrid" master server that is compliant with all versions.

At the time of writing this, we are still only running master servers for 0.75 and 0.76 (yes 0.76). I will be providing instructions for hosting "classic" servers when the time comes.

In the meantime, I'd be interested in seeing what game versions people are most interested in. I see a lot of talk about 0.35, 0.54, and 0.60. All of these will work with the new master server, so it should be interesting. Blue_BigSmile

I'm wondering how multiple versions at a time will work.

Is it possible to have several versions installed at the same time, without needing to move files when you join a server with another game version?

I was considering writing a launcher to allow this, and brought it up with stack, who then told me that such a thing is already being planned.

The oldest version I played is 0.70 :/
So, yeah... discovering what the other version are like would be interesting.

After installing the launcher protocol interceptor thingamajig that stack made, I have successfully launched both 0.75 and 0.76 clients. I have yet to test is on older clients though.
