Code

Roberto has licensed all his code under the LGPL. We're in the process of getting Project hosting but for now the code can be downloaded here.

How to run it

It's a very simple game - you'll mostly be able to walk around the forest. To do this:

  1. download the code
  2. unzip the package
  3. run server.py (it will continue running - don't stop it!)
  4. while the server code is running, run client_working.py
  5. use the arrow keys to move

From the terminal of a Linux machine...

wget http://wiki.laptop.org/images/1/17/Simple_mmorpg.tar.gz
tar -xvf Simple_mmorpg.tar.gz
python server.py &
python client_woring.py

Todo

  • translate documentation from Portuguese to English (Mchua, should be done Wed. May 7, 2008)
  • redraw creatures
