Abhi's Development Log #1
New Login System
Hello fellow Nin Onliners,
This is my first Development Log, so please bear with me.
Almost the entire community would like to know how and why I became a developer. Along with what I am doing. I became a Developer a few days back. For those who don't I created the Updater. (Its open-source) and I basically helped everyone with DirectX problems. So, I thought why not just help with the game.
I am currently working on an Authentication or Login Server.
Auth Server/Login Server
An Authentication or a Login Server a separate server that will take care of player login and other BTS stuff. This will reduce the load on the game server.
The new Auth Server is linked to the Forum MySQL database. It "authenticates" or cross-checks the username and password of the player while login with the actual data. If the details are valid then it starts filling up your account with the necessary data, including your Forum Display Name as your IGN and your forum group. All Administrators will automatically become Game-Admins and all Developers will become Game-Mods. The same with Gold Shinobis.
As most of you might be knowing Rory's going to be working on cosmetic items that will be sold in a "Forum-Store" (You can buy it from a store which is going to come up in the Forums.") When one buys items, the item will automatically be updated in the game. The Auth-Server will help a lot in this.
Now for the best part, the Release Date. I don't want to spoil on the fun so I am not going to say much. But what I can say is that it is coming soon. (Within the next 10 days.) If anyone wants to guess when its coming up, please do so in their posts in this topic. Please do not create multiple topics discussing it.
