Call for a web based platform

Postby dstojkov » 26 Jul 2013, 14:01

Hi Dude,


This is a call for all the sup com fan serie !!!
I am willing to build a open web platform for the game that we all love with at least replay, mod and map vault.

The aim of this platform will be to gather us and build something together with no pushing about how and what should be played.
There will be for the most played mod a ladder and multi mod ladder
Of course a powerful chat with may be blog feature and so on.


I am thinking to make this with java ( websocket, jsf, ....) and open sourced
It will not be easy but for sure an interesting adventure ;)


Regards

Oh, yes, a lobby with a map vault, easy to launch mods, a chat and a ladder. That would be that cool.

Here is code I've received from the original GW team when I've started FAF.

I was sadly way ahead of what it does at that time, but it should give you a good start.

From there, you just need to implement a livereplay server, a map/replay vault and blogs, should be fairly easy.

Thx Zep ... I haven't expected lot of help and specially not from you !!! Well ... you could also help me later on when the project will have been refactored and you finished with GW.

I mean .. It will be a java open source project we can get a lot of support from the community and a true legacy project for the next generation
