Hallow[Online] Restructured…

leave a comment »

After careful consideration, I’ve completely restructured everything that I’ve had working. It’s all in an attempt to be more organized…. Yes… I rewrote it all in the process.

It is now:

  • Cleaner/Well organized
  • Easier to read
  • Easier to comprehend 
I still need some pimping art help, as requested back in my post “In need of GUI, Character, and Font Artists.

The reason I made the C# JSON.NET wrapper!

leave a comment »

The reason I created the JSON.NET wrapper for Hallow[Online] is because I knew it would be simple and I needed managable packets. I wanted more than just one command being sent at a time to be possible as well. Curently I have the packets being parsed through REGEX like HTTP headers almost, not to mention how I was using String.Split() to tear all the data apart in the packets on the server side. 1 packet would be 1 command + pure string data. Now that I’m parsing JSON, it’s a usable object of commands that I can loop through and read the data of. Here’s a textagram of how it worked.

1 Packet (old way)
COMMAND, DATA
The data would look like: “value1|value2|value3”

1 Packet (new way)
COMMAND, DATA
COMMAND, DATA
COMMAND, DATA
COMMAND, DATA
The data now looks like: ‘Data_Name’ : ‘Value’, ‘Data_Name’ : ‘Value’

JSON.NET [Updated]

leave a comment »

I’ve decided to start work on a JSON reader/writer wrapper so that I can pimp out the packets that I sent to/from the server. It’ll be simpe to use and I’ll release it here when it’s complete.

UPDATE
The JSON wrapper has been MADE! It’s simple as hell. Written in JScript, it’s a .NET wrapper that is accessible by any and all .NET applications. It’s a good idea to use Microsoft.JScript to manage the JSON objects. The download is licensed under an MIT license. The README.TXT file explains how it works in C#.
