Reply To: Hello Everyone!
Thanks a lot for making me feel welcome!
I took a look at the packet documentation and I will definitely continue to browse through it; thanks for providing a link to it.
I have acquired all of the necessary components, such as VS C++ 2013, XAMPP, the client, and the LUNI project from GitHub.
It’s sad to hear that the LUNI project isn’t truly open source and the reasons why it isn’t. I don’t expect the LUNI project to go forward very quickly, in fact, the more I look into it the more afraid I am that I won’t be of much help as I have little experience in network structure and syntax, so a lot of what I am reading is foreign to me; I can pick up on things pretty quickly, but it is foreign to me nonetheless.
I do have a couple of questions:
1. When I try to build any of the 4 server versions (stable and unstable alike), both RakNet and SUtil will build but not the LUNI Server.
It fails for the reason of not being able to load the file “libmysql.lib” (error code: LNK1104).
I searched the entire “LUNIServerProject-master” folder for the “libmysql.lib” file using the search function that is built into Windows Explorer, but it came up with no results, so my question is, do you know where can I acquire this file?
2. When I was reading through the packet documentation that you referred me to, I noticed that it would occasionally mention the client source code.
I would like to be able to look at this code, but I am not sure as to which file(s) it is.
I know it is within the “client” folder and is not in any of the sub folders, so I assume (but am not sure) that most, if not all of the remaining files are the source code.
If this is the case, then I have one more question: is all of the source code in Assembly and/or machine-code?
The reason that I ask this is, because I have been googling the names of some of the extensions and many of them have to do with the Assembly language (the “i64” extension is one).
I hope that it isn’t because if it is, then, as I said before, I will understand little to none of it.
Thanks for all of the help @xiphoseer, and I hope that I am not too much of a noob.
P.S. I truly desire to make real progress on the LUNI project, but desire is nothing without ability (the same go for the converse as well), so I guess will just have to wait and see what happens.
