TSO Emu is restoration/server emulation project dedicated to recovering and restoration The Sims Online/EA-Land servers which were shut down in 2008. We hope that someday soon, people will be able to play The Sims Online once again!
This week I managed to get a number of the original UI elements from TSO/EA-Land (including the login system, the world selection interface and the auto-updater utility) reverse engineered off the TSO client and then reintegrated into the emulator. The updater utility is actually fully functional and is capable of updating the client files with files on a specified server. The login page is also (partially) functional and connects to a placeholder database for storing all of the player accounts and login details. The world selection interface still needs quite a bit of work. Here's a quick video showing all of that off anyway:
So, as you can see, a lot of progress is being made on the emulator, but seeing as though I'm pretty much the only person working on it right now (there are a few people helping me here and there), and considering that I'm a little bit time constrained right now, I may go on the hunt for new programmers/general developers shortly. Contact me if you might be interested!
