Novice o viteški taverni

Knights Province Alpha 11 bo kmalu pripravljena in čas je, da se pogovorimo o še eni edinstveni lastnosti, ki jo bo imela: Taverna Knights!
[Taverna, 1658, David Teniers II]
Knights Tavern (na kratko KT) je kodno ime za strežnik računov, ki ga razvijamo od leta 2019. Računi so bili ena najpogosteje zahtevanih funkcij v KaM Remake, vendar nikoli nismo imeli strokovnega znanja ali poguma, da bi ga dejansko uvedli (no, za številne razlogi). Poskusi KP so bili, vendar jim je uspelo šele pred kratkim, ko je prišla srečna priložnost (v obliki članka (https://habr.com/ru/post/491272/) in repozitorij kode (https://github.com/Cooler2/ApusEngineExamples)). Now, knowing that the backend server can be developed in the same language as the game, KT is finally taking its chance to come true. Neat thing about KT, is that it can be used for both KaM Remake and Knights Province. Both games are very much alike in terms of accounts info they provide and can benefit from. So we can safely build KT in such a way that it allows for a single account for both Knights Province and KaM Remake. Register once and play twice. KP is our testground for the KT. Once it is sufficiently tested, KaM Remake can be upgraded and start using it too. You can help with KT playtesting right now, but more on that later. Basic auth functionality is mostly covered: KT has player accounts that can be registered, activated, logged in to and logged out of, forgotten passwords can be reset. For a proof of concept, KT can report how many player accounts it has and how many players were active within the last hour. The first useful feature in KT are mission highscores. If a single-player mission was prepared by the mapmaker in a specific way (2 lines of script, one dynamic and one static), the game can submit the mission’s winning score to KT and later on show the player his ranking in that mission.

Word of caution, KT is still in beta and might have bugs in all different areas. We hope to iron them out over time. That’s why we start testing with simple functionality, so flaws in the authentication (which there must be) can be fixed. So, since there might be bugs and weak spots, do not use your everyday life passwords for KT. KT future allows for many interesting things:
  • Prijatelji, neposredna sporočila, vabila v preddverje, klani itd
  • Ocene in ugled igralcev, ELO točkovanje itd.
KT nam postavlja nove izzive:
  • Kodirati ga je treba asinhrono, tako da zahteve po podatkih ne upočasnijo ali zamrznejo igre.
  • Podatke o igralcih je treba varno posredovati in shraniti (že uporabljamo soli in razpršilce)
  • Ohraniti bomo morali podatke o igralcih pri nadgradnjah in med različicami iger
Najboljše od vsega - KT že lahko preizkusite in nam ga pomagate izboljšati! Oglejte si najnovejše zgradbe KP wip (na voljo na Discord https://discord.gg/cEwJFSY). Prosimo, prijavite vse napake ali napake. Odprti smo tudi za predloge glede funkcionalnosti KT. Lahko ga usmerja v številne smeri in najbolje bi bilo izbrati tiste, ki so bolj iskane.
