Hi all, I have taken the High score server from the book "The black art of Java games programming" and extended it to support multiple high score tables (multiple games) and added support for viewing, loading, saving high score data via the server console. High scores can be added, retrieved from the high score tables via a simple protocol. Is there any interest in this server?. I developed it to host the high score tables for my own game applets but thought others might find it useful. If there is interest in the high score server I will put together some documentation on using it and put it up on my web site with source code. Thanks for listening - Darren

Well sounds like a dream come true

You definitely should share your info, but do you know has the author of that book given up his copyright to the code? That means are you allowed to redistribute modified versions of (originally) his source code?

I think it''s free, but if it isn''t there are always ways to evade it. Just name it differently and change some variable names. Noone really cares...mostly.. ;-)

Time comes, time goes and I only am.

I actually wrote the server from scratch, but just based the design on the server contained in the book, so copyright shouldn''t be an issue. Ill try to put some documentation together today and slam it up on the site.

Okay I have finished writing some documentation on the HighScore server and have uploaded it to my website.

Please feel free to download the server (with source code)and send me any feedback you may have. I'd love to know what you think of the server and if you find it of any use?.

Thanks,

- Hodglim
