Hey whats up, I remember I talked with you once and that you were in the process of making a new kaillera client or something like that. Well I hope this will work out.
If you really are gonna start a new client from scratch, then I suggest you worry more about the lagginess of games. I would like for you to try to get the games to run as fast as possible and that we dont get any desynch while playing. I would like it for your client to have 2 ways to connect in order to play. One way is like kaillera is connected right now, through a master server. The other option we could have is to get connected through direct ip addresses like Zbattle does it. And if you can somehow pull off a tournament mode where we can create our own tournament and post names in our own brackets, then that would be great, but I doubt this will be easy to do. just a suggestion though.
My last and most important suggestion is to of course have all the usual features like ban, kick, flood control, ping limit, and etc. After you get all the basic functions done, then you can start adding all the other cool stuff like having a ranking system, numbers of wins and losses and stuff like that, I think that if your client can count the number of coins a person enters in a game, it can record the data and record the amount of times someone has played or just record the amount of wins and losses and stuff like that. And if you can somehow pull off a tournament mode where we can create our own tournament and post names in our own brackets, then that would be great, but I doubt this will be easy to do. just a suggestion though.
I hope you can get something to work, Ive seen too many people try their own kaillera clients but I guess they werent good enough to get one started. Especially projects like the Mithras project which just didnt happen.
