Edit: The project is now known as 'Mischief Mages', Project Dosepei (WT) will remain as a codename for the project however, as lots of references to that will take quite some time to change.
You may have already seen this, but I figured I'd post in a blog. :)
'patcher progress' by HarkonXSo this is the start of the patcher artwork i am making for project dopey eye or whatever its called atm :P but yeh i have suggest mischief mages as the new title.
Today I spent almost the entire day working on the Lobby and Authentication servers. It was my first real attempt at a non-threaded (as in, thread per socket), non-blocking server setup. I have to say I'm majorly impressed with it. Sure I could have cheated and used a library for just about everything. But for me this project is about learning the various things that uni doesn't teach us. Which seems to be an awful lot.
Right now theres a working Authentication Server which checks your login credentials from the LOR database. Thats protected by a massively long password (and a secure connection) so that server should be pretty hack-proof. But the site is still in a bad shape security wise.
And here are some more concepts, these ones are early concepts for spells. :)
'Molten Boulder and Ice Shard' by MaggieThis image was commissioned by Mellisah for the Dosepei project very early on in the design phase.
'Push, Heal and Phase Shift' by MaggieShe was experimenting with different animation ideas for the 'heal' skill. The left one is self-heal, the right one is targeted heal I believe.
'Merlins Will Concept' by MaggieThis was a prototype "ultimate" type skill in which it would take a lot longer to cast/channel but did a massive damage AOE attack.
Have Fun, Paul Out.
