Status: The Lobbyserver is coded, it can store games, list them and has a lobby chat. It can use phpBB's Database for user management and communicates via JSON. It has IRC functionality and responds to certain triggers.

ToDo: 1. Make a standart for all Queries Client <-> Server, 2. Integrate a login function into the game, 3. change the clients lobby communication.

We need the devs support for the user management thingy tho

Actually you need someone with access to the server for that, which reduces that number significantly.

Yep... sure... i mean, i could run the lobbyserver and the database... but i think you all agree when i say that it would be better if it runs on the official server and under the teams control

@m1ndgames : Maybe you could talk to Fastdeath on IRC and collaborate with him on the ant-cheat lobby?

Well Fastdeath, with what little time he has, is still proceeding with his project.

You're a DJ right? Why not make us some good music :)

If you are good at web programming and design, you could maybe help with the Web Frontend later?! :)

What problems is this supposed to solve?

Storing the stats remotely means nothing because players can just simulate lots of successful games.
People find out you're a cheater? Get a new account, problem solved.
Thin ice is the most exciting when you swing at it with a pickaxe.
