Hi all,

I've taken my Artillery Duel Network game for the C64 as far as I intend to. Playable, and supports the RR-Net, ETH64 and the new FB-Net.

Info page:
http://home.ica.net/~leifb/commodore/duel/

Download it here:
http://noname.c64.org/csdb/release/?id=45526

Source code is here! (copy/paste into browser)
http://home.ica.net/~leifb/commodore/duel/artillery (1.0) Jan 11 2008.zip

Enjoy!

Very neat. I still haven't had the opportunity try it with anyone else than myself, which is quite lame...

Would it be possible/meaningful to separate the network code into a networked game library? Making it plug'n'play with a small tic-tac-toe game (or something equally simple) as a demo might be useful.

All I did was use Six's netlib64 library with a few tweaks and stuff removed.

Six used to make it available for a standalone download, but the link[1] is dead. He gave me permission to include the version I have (which is actually old) with the game's source.

Any code that's game-specific starts with duel- , the rest is mostly netlib stuff.

It would be easy to whip up a quick tic-tac-toe game. The turn-based gameplay would be very similar to what's there now.

I'm already thinking ahead to something fancier though that's multiplayer, with a Java server keeping things co-ordinated.

Just not sure what type of game. MMORPG? 4-player Pacman? Tank sim? Racing?

That's just the low level stuff though. On top of that you've added a turn based game protocol, hosting/connecting, configuration, etc.

Seconded :) Burning Horizon has disassembled Laser Squad extensively...

Sweet, I'd like to take a look at that myself.
