Galactic War is getting made

Hey guys,

just a tiny progress update on what has happened in the last 3 weeks:

The gw server is now able to request games from the lobby server. The lobby server then asks one of the players to launch the game, and afterwards all other players to join. This works similar to Ladder. You just see the "setting up automatch" window in the game. Until recently we required some dirty hacks to make this work, but as of now we have full support in gw-server, java lobby server and java-faf-client to make this happen (parts of it are not parte of the main branch in the source code though).

Our next issue to tackle is the parsing of game results. I added some code to the java lobby server to broadcast the results for each ended game, so that the gw server can listen to this and process the results. But the message currently does not arrive.

Big thanks to Geosearchef and Downlord for their support.

By the way: all games are hosted using ICE. Awesome :D

Not to hijack the thread, but has any of this solved any of the issues that were preventing a team match maker?

Yes. The galactic war server basically is a matchmaking service. It can request the lobby server to make multiple people join a game. The broadcasting in game result is also required for a dedicated 2v2+ matchmaker.
