Zep pulled it offline due to it having a memory leak afaik, but he never got around to fixing it. It was also pretty unpolished, with major imbalances with reinforcements and glitchy maps. Still the most fun I've had playing this game though! I hope GW will sometime see a return.

Short update on the current progress:

We have put some work into the java server and the java client. GW can now tell the java server to open a game for players and on the player's computers the game actually opens like a ladder game. Unfortunately no ACUs spawn, so there is still some work left we did not identify yet. However, the fact that we can open the acual game is already a huge achievement.

Hey MartinX3, Spring Boot and JPA is exactly what we are using. Send me your email via PM and I'll get you invited to slack.

As long as you don t pay the people spending time to get this done.
They will always find some other things, which are more important.
Especially real life things.

Really sad that this project looks pretty dead to me.
I mean how long are we waiting now? Already 4 years? Well hope dies last i assume.

Don't give up hopes yet. I got an explanation of the project structure (backend) from brutus last week and will start work on this. (to me the backend looks like a lot is already completed)

I have no idea of the status of the frontend, the major issue with the backend currently seems to get the integration with FAF running.

Sadly real life ( ;) ) got into the way last week so I had no time to get started. I'm also currently trying to get ICE completeld/into deployment. (which I've been working on for too long now, so it either works or I will start work on GW while still running tests)
Developer, currently working on ICE adapter, Java Client (downlords's client), java api/server.
