Cobra - Instant Messenger

59 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Since I am completely rewriting ALL code, I have decided not to let you wait any longer. Cobra has made it's first release to public! :whistle:

- Start the server, enter an admin account and password.*

- Start the client (Enter your own IP in the code first!)

- Register, activate and log in

- Tell your friends how to use it

- Chat with your friends

*The admin account is not necessary at all, and you don't get extra features using it. It is an extra feature for future use, that allows you to remotely administrate your server.

The final version is going to implement one server for all clients, (but does allow private servers).

By RazerM and Manadar

Cobra v0.?.?3.6

As this is the old code, no reported bugs will be fixed.

Cool!

But two things:

1 - put an option in server to enable/disable that activation code (for testing purposes)

2 - make the client read the server ip from ini file

I started coding a IRC idea Server. I'll be using it mostly for my game but I might release it with a client.

1: You can manually edit the database in the server, and reboot it to create new accounts. Maybe I will create a "Create new account" option to the server's traybar.

2: In the final version you will be connected to a main server, and based on your preferences you can join a different server or go to the main server immediately. No ini editing for Cobra users.

hey, i asked if i could be part of development, but i never got a reply.. is development team already chosen?

Yes it has been chosen. Me and RazerM will do just fine together. Thanks for your interest anyway.

Why not just compile as .zip so that windows can open it without an external program?

Very good point, but WinRAR has a much better compression algorithm than .zip files and in addition winrar is just much better than many zip programs, with the exception of 7zip. If you don't want to have to deal with the winrar trial notification and all that, just download 7zip instead. 7zip if free and open source.

www.7-zip.org- site appears to be down for the moment, probably updating it

You can download 7zip here:

That is one of many reasons to rewrite the code. The GUI will probably be mostly the same but the way in which the client and server communicate will be different.

We will probably not support webcam chat, although we are keeping an eye out for Voice over IP chat (VoIP).

Im sure if you like i could implant more security into this.. seems kinda open..

What RazerM told you is definately right. I have done a lot of research into security, and seems that I was abled to crack my own password system in a few minutes, so that definately has to be redone.

Go into the Cobra Server folder and open Database.ini, put the following under your username "[username]":

Activated=1

Then delete the ActivationCode=xxxx line

yes. I will try to secure things up when i have some time.

We are working on new code, and this old code will never be used for any other purpose ever. Making changes to this is wasting your time.

OK, sure. as soon as you like, send the code to me and ill see what i can do if you like. Im pretty good at securing things.

Sure, Spyro. I'll keep things that are important to security commented, and I'll send it to you when I'm just about done. I may or may not implement your changes though.
