    Zodiac - Tantra Development Reboot


    RaGEZONE Recommends

    RaGEZONE Recommends

    Zodiac, a development with as goal the reboot of development in the Tantra Online section.
    Tantra Online has been using pre-built binaries for too long now and the development in this section is near to dead.
    I'm developing a source from scratch in Java so that development may yet again bloom. The development of the source means that only the server side is being made at the moment, using an existing client. Once the server side source is at a level where development is possible for everyone, I might consider making a client.
    I've chosen the Java programming languages for two reasons. First, it is a fairly easy language to learn from scratch. The second is that Java is a very capable programming language (as long as visuals are not involved).

    Revisions
    Spoiler:

    Revision 1
    - Set up a project
    - Set up a basic Server Socket using Netty 4.0.33
    - A fairly empty revision, as it is the starting point.


    Currently at:
    Trying to find the packethandler within the client using IDA Pro

    To make this development a success, I will probably need all the help I can get, so suggestions and questions are always welcome!

    I just hope you find someone that helps you with this emulation.
    Nonetheless, no body even "continued" to develop the "plugin" some guy posted here. ;)

    I just want you to know that the servers work fine.
    If you can just make tools to decrypt / encrypt the data files & probably create a map editor / terrain etc (like in FlyFF) thats more content added to the game.
    And Java is not my forte. ^^
    Looking for Custom Launcher for your Private Server?

    The reason for the development is to expand the game for new features and other stuffs that will help the game evolve in the near future. And i think he does that not for self interest but to help the community. Creating a map editor, new stuffs etc will just come soon. Having such tools will not help the game expand, it will still revolve to the same game setup.

    I know that the servers work fine, but that's where Tantra's story already ends. Because of the prebuilt binaries everyone's using, this game has no way in means of development (aside from injected libraries) and is slowly decaying due to the game staying the same all these years. A released source can bring new features with old components and even take the hardest of things out of hands.

    I was once who dared to buy a source code for Tantra Online but it turns out to be a bogus seller and I think the source is nowhere to be found. I just hope someone will release it if they saw someone like you @Luxray is willing to Develop the game for good.

    To whom it may concern:

    Let's give this a shot and just release it! We are begging you :D

    YOU COME IN PEACE, BUT YOU WILL LEAVE IN PIECES.

    You're planning to expand the server but the current client might not even support.

    Who said I would have to expand the visuals? I can modify information and expand the game that way. Ever noticed how a server and client actually work?

    Re: Zodiac - Tantra Development Reboot

    It's been a busy weekend, so I haven't been able to do a lot. I managed to login to the game without using the existing server files and I am currently disassembling the launcher to determine packet structure.
