PostSubject: Clarification on first steps needed   Sun Jun 10, 2018 11:44 pm

Okay, so I have looked up a bunch of tutorials and I've downloaded the guide for dummies, but I still can't wrap my head around the first steps for compiling my IT.

So I guess my questions are;
1. do I need to get more software(other than Visual Studio 2013)? I've seen in guides poeple say "Unpack", "unzip", and "Extract" your folders. And this wouldn't confuse me so much if everyone said the same thing.

2. #define ENCRYPTION_EXTENSION ".kzip"
Is this like a file that provides extra security? Do I ignore this?
#define ENCRYPTION_XORS { 11, 22, 33, 144, 57, 63, 69, 96, 240, 128 }
//Change the above numbers 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
I'm not understanding this. Do i change the numbers above to 1, 2, 3, 4, ect? If I remember right encrypting means to translate into secret code or something like that.

3. // Uncomment the next line and change the key
#define XORKEY 0 // Change this key like: 3*(i%2)+3*(i%7)+4
I think xor has something to do with encryption. I have no clue what this means.

4. #define SERVER_PORT 40000
#define MAIN_SERVER_PORT 40010
I recall hearing something about port forwarding in a tutorial but I'm not sure if that's something I have to do

5. #define MAIN_SERVER_IP "127.0.0.1" // enter your server address
I did get an address from the website linked in nowes guide, but when I try to paste it in the place of this one, the nasty yellow error markers at the beginning of the line sow up.

I may have more later but I want to make sure that my other problems are not babies of these ones.

I know you guys are probably thinking I shouldn't be trying to make a server when I this clueless. But I'm really doing it to learn.
Thanks

All I can help with is:

1. do I need to get more software(other than Visual Studio 2013)? I've seen in guides poeple say "Unpack", "unzip", and "Extract" your folders. And this wouldn't confuse me so much if everyone said the same thing.

To build the server all you need is Visual Studio (I use 2013), server source (read through this to understand what should you do with it: link).
"Unpack", "unzip" and "extract" are actually synonyms and they mean that you'll face .zip and .rar files. Like most downloads are in .zip or .rar files and these words means that you simply need to pull files out of .zip\rar format for more comfortable use.
More:
.zip format
.rar format


4. #define SERVER_PORT 40000
#define MAIN_SERVER_PORT 40010

I would recommend you to leave these port numbers as they are. These numbers means the port that you are portforwarding to (but I'm not sure if I said it right though). You don't need to change them.


5. #define MAIN_SERVER_IP "127.0.0.1" // enter your server address

Server IP means IP of the computer that will host your server.

2. #define ENCRYPTION_EXTENSION ".kzip"
Is this like a file that provides extra security? Do I ignore this?


Yes,yes it is. This will change your folders in media into .kzip file (aka no one can just open your media folder and take whatever they want)


3. // Uncomment the next line and change the key
#define XORKEY 0 // Change this key like: 3*(i%2)+3*(i%7)+4
I think xor has something to do with encryption. I have no clue what this means.


This mean,you need to change XORKEY 0 like the example which is in the solution. You change only the 0,nothin else.

I would also like to add,that 127.0.0.1 will create a loopback server if not changed (aka test server only you can use). It is good to have one for testing models/textures or any code changes.

Good luck with your server!

Yeah I'm completely agree about the test one. And didn't I say so? That there must be computer's IP that will host and that is obvious that it must be changed. Smile

I forgot to add this as it's own question, it was kinda shoved under 2
#define ENCRYPTION_XORS { 11, 22, 33, 144, 57, 63, 69, 96, 240, 128 }
//Change the above numbers 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
This means I change the numbers to 1,2,3 etc?
If everyone changes this part to the same thing, why do we need to change it?

you dont change it to the same thing, you change it to a random array of numbers
