xxUnleashing a HTTP-based API for the Soldat Lobby

April 10, 2017, 05:37:08 am by jrgp | Views: 1181 | Comments: 15

For almost a decade, the only way of querying the Soldat Lobby to see what servers are online has been to use an aging, proprietary, protocol over sockets which is inconvenient if you want to build an app to make use of lobby data.

To make building 3rd party apps or other tools for Soldat easier, I just implemented support for getting and filtering the currently online Soldat servers over JSON+HTTP, slightly similar to the API for KAG.

List of all servers: http://api.soldat.pl/v0/servers

Example of some queries with the currently-supported filters:

http://api.soldat.pl/v0/servers?empty=no&bots=no&full=no&version=1.7.1
http://api.soldat.pl/v0/servers?empty=yes

Info on one specific server: http://api.soldat.pl/v0/server/88.198.8.206/23020
Players for that one server: http://api.soldat.pl/v0/server/88.198.8.206/23020/players

Note: the json returned ...

xxA new art direction for 1.8

November 29, 2016, 12:57:42 pm by Falcon` | Views: 7862 | Comments: 64

For a long, long, time Soldat has been ugly – certainly since its creation, but as games have become more and more beautiful, we've stayed behind the times and the disparity has grown larger. When a new player opens up Soldat, not only is he met with a convoluted and confusing menu, but also graphics straight from 2000, which even for the time weren't good.

With 1.8 we are going to rectify that. Hand-painted sceneries and textures were the way to go, since limitations poised by the old engine rendered many conventional methods useless, and the art team (which consists of Monsteri) doesn't have enough time for 3D pre-renders. The goals of the new art direction are a cohesive style, much improved visuals, and improved readability of the game elements.

The style will be a mix of cartoony and painterly visuals with a bucketload of grit, but decently realistic shapes and objects. All colliding things – that is to say, polygons and colliders, will have thick outlines. ...

xxNew official THD channel - #THD @ QNet

October 31, 2016, 04:38:00 pm by Furai | Views: 1239 | Comments: 4

Hey,

So today I've decided that it's high time to create the channel for all THD games (THD stands for Transhuman Design which is MM's company).
Chat there is meant to be about all THD games - Soldat, KAG, Butcher and others that kind of fell into oblivion over the years.

Join #THD @ Quakenet.

Happy chatting.

Cheers,
Furai

  • You Got Served!: Yeah, man. I'm 29 in May & will happily embrace the fact that I've spent over half my life as a Soldier. Really should bring back Soldat FM. Had some great times just sharing tunes & killing goons, for those of you that remember.
