Announcements / 1.29 Patch
« on: April 16, 2018, 05:14:52 pm »
I updated https://github.com/uakfdotb/ghostpp for the 1.29 patch. There's a note in the README about the patch:

Quote
For 1.29, put Warcraft III.exe in the bot_war3path. You may name it Warcraft III.exe or warcraft.exe.

war3.exe, game.dll, and storm.dll are no longer needed.

Also, use War3x.mpq instead of War3Patch.mpq. (Actually, it is recommended that you extract common.j and blizzard.j yourself and put them in bot_mapcfgpath, since the new MPQ file is very large. Make sure to also exclude War3x.mpq from bot_war3path so that the host bot does not attempt to read the archive.)

Announcements / Status of GHost++: January 2018
« on: January 12, 2018, 09:34:25 pm »
In the past, GHost++ was developed on Google Code. However, GHost++ is no longer maintained. Moreover, as Google has taken Google Code offline, there is no longer any official repository.

Nevertheless, GHost++ remains widely used for hosting Warcraft III games, and there are no major known bugs.

Here are two recommended options to obtain GHost++:

* The latest release of GHost++, plus minor stability improvements: https://github.com/uakfdotb/ghostpp
* Aura, a fork of GHost++ with a modernized framework but many features stripped out: https://github.com/Josko/aura-bot/

The first option has the full set features from GHost++. If you do not need these features, though, the second option is still maintained by the author as of January 2018.

To compile the first option on Ubuntu 16.04 (these steps should work on any recent Debian/Ubuntu release, but I can only guarantee that it works on Ubuntu 16.04):

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install -y git libboost-all-dev build-essential libgmp-dev zlib1g-dev libbz2-dev libmysql++-dev
git clone https://github.com/uakfdotb/ghostpp
cd ghostpp
cd bncsutil/src/bncsutil/
make && sudo make install
cd ../../../StormLib/stormlib/
make && sudo make install
cd ../../ghost
make

Announcements / More downtime
« on: January 12, 2018, 09:31:51 pm »
ghostpp.com has been offline for several months because I had to cancel the dedicated server that the VM hosting this website was on. I did not migrate it as the activity here was low, but it looks like there are still people using GHost++ who may find the information on this website useful. Thus, ghostpp.com will remain online indefinitely.

Announcements / Downtime

There has been downtime because the server where VM is hosted had filesystem corruption. I will be transferring the VM to another location soon.

codelain.com is back online, but we will continue running ghostpp.com as we are able to better maintain this website.

gcb / TCP worker pool
« on: January 21, 2014, 02:37:59 pm »
I think I've said I'd do this before but this time I've actually got something started. So I'm rewriting the GarenaTCP system to use a pool of workers instead of handling virtual TCP over UDP processing in the room thread (specifically, the it is currently handled in peerLoop). This means that even if you get many connections from a room, the lag for each player in that room won't increase linearly; instead, each of them will be assigned a worker thread where the processing will be done.

I'm not sure if this will actually solve the issue, so it needs testing. If you are running gcb with lots of players and can somehow measure the lag and are willing to test this, please post here :)

GHost++ Development & News / Any interest in pyGHost++
« on: December 16, 2013, 09:01:13 am »
pyGHost++ is a GHost++ modification Krauzi made a while ago that offers support for Python plugins that can be dynamically loaded into the host bot. I was thinking about updating it and offloading some existing C++ code to plugins, and probably also including some multithreaded support so that the plugins don't cause other games to freeze if they take a long time to execute.

This Bot service is legit. Good pricing, fast response and customer service. Control panel is simple and easy to use. If you are going to rent from anybody, rent from these guys.   ;D

Positive things: it tooks me less than 30 min to config and host a game. Also the website interface is pretty easy and offers nice features such as database (admin list, banlist, game log, running game ...)   :-*

Negative: I havn't found tcp_nodeley and few other config. Where is tcp_nodeley ?^^

I've faced many diffrent botproviders under a couple of years on B.net and I must say, this is the best one so far. Easy to control, stable bots and when I've wanted to change something, like announcements or other features the owner has fixed it, fast and proffessional ( even on a friday at 1 AM, who does that for his customers?! ).

I wanna give this botprovider 10/10 and I'm quite hard to satisfy and it's really cheap comparing to other providers and what support they give!    ;D
