Knights Province Alpha 11 is going to be ready soon and it’s time to talk about one more unique feature that it is going to have: Knights Tavern!
[Tavern Scene, 1658, by David Teniers II]
Knights Tavern (KT for short) is a codename for the accounts server we have been developing since 2019. Accounts were one of the more often requested features in KaM Remake, but we never had expertise or bravery to actually implement it (well, for numerous reasons). Attempts were made for the KP, but they did not succeed until recently, when a lucky chance has arrived (in form of an article (https://habr.com/ru/post/491272/) and a code repository (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:
  • 朋友,即時消息,遊說邀請,氏族等
  • 玩家評分和聲譽,ELO得分等
KT給我們帶來了新的挑戰:
  • 它需要以異步方式進行編碼,以便數據請求不會減慢或凍結遊戲。
  • 播放器數據需要安全地傳遞和存儲(我們已經使用了鹽和哈希值)
  • 我們需要在升級以及遊戲版本之間保留玩家數據
最重要的是–您已經可以試用KT並幫助我們進行改進!查看最新的KP wip版本(在Discord上可用) https://discord.gg/cEwJFSY)。請報告任何錯誤或缺陷。我們也歡迎您提出有關KT功能的建議。它可以將其引導到多個方向,最好選擇更需要的方向。
