Request Programs

Post by EMB » Tue Mar 01, 2011 8:44 pm

I have no imagination, so I can think of no good programming exercises that would get me doing something. Therefore I come to a nice community :P

Basically, ask me to make any sort of program you want; I'll give it a try.

Notes:
  • Doesn't have to be within LÖVE, can be anything at all.
  • Personally, I prefer the communication and encryption side of programing. (Will do other stuff though.)
  • I am a windows guy, if you want stuff for other platforms it must be web based. (Can do basic hosting.)
  • Don't be stupid.
  • Just because you ask, doesn't mean I have to do it.

If Linux were a beer, it would be shipped in open barrels so that anybody could piss in it before delivery

Make a pure-Lua IRC client library we can use for in-game chat lobbies.

Create a pure-Lua Upnp or port hole punching protocol library.

Make an achievement sharing system for Love. Something that we could link up to our forum usernames would be the nicest.

IRC shouldn't be hard, I have found a library doing everything but sending. (I know WTF?)
Upnp/port punching I don't quite see the point of; elaborate it's use and I may consider.
Achievements, that sounds fun.
Global Highscores, that sounds even more fun :P

Think I'll start on IRC and then move onto global highscores, unless something cooler comes up :3

It's needed for online multiplayer unless you want to have to make the user set up port forwarding.

What for, servers? They traditionally require port forwarding anyway, and there is no reason to change that. (If you can't port forward or find workarounds, you shouldn't be hosting a server.)

If I make a small 2 player game that is over the internet, I don't want to force them to setup port-forwarding in their router to play a brief game.

I like this idea too, but it seems to be out of the scope of ordinary lovers.
