Next Version of the Client
« on: May 07, 2008, 05:25:21 pm »
As many of you know, the WorldScape Client has some problems when loading, mainly the abyte0 nulled error. So, I've gotten a newer release of the refactored client from one of the moderators at MoparScape. So, I'm re-writing the client with that client as the base. I'm probably making a few changes also.

Instead of downloading all the files from websites, the actual game worlds may send needed files to a loading client, like real RuneScape's update servers. However I may still have the cache download from the website, to prevent lagging the worlds too much.

So far, I've gotten a basic connection from the client and I'm moving on to grabbing the files.


Were also thinking of making the client only run on the web, like the real RuneScape client. This would allow us to ensure that everyone is using the latest version of the client, and we could easily add new features and fix bugs this way.

So, what do you think?

Great Idea, (the Online-Client Deal)

And, I've came across another Null besides the Abyte0Null or w\e.

It has something to do with:

Error odd xnull

Or something like that, it's only happened like once every 20 client loads, but it's rather annyoing  :-\

The download client is fine as long as people do the update thing every once in a while though right?

Well you need the latest version, and the webclient forces you to use the latest version. We can't announce every small update we do. So I'll probably add an outdated client message on the login screen for the new client, so if we offer a downloadable version, outdated versions wouldn't be allowed to connect.  :o

Hah! It is looking good! ;D
I also think the online server deal is a great idea.
Why make things harder on yourself by having to update multiple connections instead of one grand server?
Glad to see how things are going!

Yeah, I like the idea of a Web Client (even though thats what I use most of the time :D).


The Downloadable Client would be harder for everyone to manage :-\.  Downloading and Re-Downloading gets old fast (I still have the origional Downloadable Client :o)

yes i like the web client idea too

because people that does not have experience dealing whit this kind of stuff wont have to do anything whit
the client.
they will just go to the page and let it run. they wont have to update or anything so that will make it easy for
everyone on the server.and they will have all the cool features of the server :o
 ;D

Why not? 


Well, some broadband users using the same connection as me (and others from different connections, maybe,) Have trouble accessing some websites.

Like, on certain days, or long periods of time, I cannot access the local Job website or the local Bank website.
