Post Cortex Command Networking
Hello there user! Thank you for taking the time to look at this topic. I am working on a networking application for Cortex Command, it will include multiplayer (yay!). I also hope to have a mod repository for installing mods in-game.

This is a project which is currently maintained by me. Help would definitely be appreciated. If you would like to join the repo is here https://github.com/Unit158/CortexCommandInternetAPI. You may need to send me a private message before you can push to the repo.

Here is an incomplete list of features to be developed.

Words in blue are features that are complete.
Words in green are features that are being tested.
Words in cyan are features that are in the development phase, but are usable. Expect many changes.
Word in yellow are features that are being developed. They cannot be used.
Words in red are features that have been put on the back burner.
Words in black are features that have yet to be started.

Here is a list of features that need to be completed before a decently usable release:

  • Base server:
    • Basic simulation:
      • Bullets (MOPixels)
      • Movement (Actors)
    • Plugin system:
      • API
  • Base client:

Here is a list of features that need to be completed before a complete release (sound familiar?):


  • Destruction of terrain
  • Chat

Again, the repo is here if you'd like to help: https://github.com/Unit158/CortexCommandInternetAPI.

Notice about the license: I am still trying to decide on how I should license the program, so that it may not be stolen for commercial purposes or used in proprietary programs, but is still maintainable by the community.

The page has a 404 error for me but ive been working with python for a while.
I might be able to help but does your server use the SocketServer API or does it use
something else.

EDIT: do you need help with the design or other.

It uses python's built-in socket class as I am not a fan of SocketServer.

I have design down, but I am porting the code from lua to python, which is proving fairly tedious.

Fixed the link X]

Just an update, the server should be able to run now. No gameplay yet, still working on that. Help here would be greatly appreciated.

I wonder, what's exactly the purpose of a networking API for Cortex Command? Was thinking about some asynchronous multiplayer...

Did I seriously forget to describe the project?

Ok, thank you for pointing that out weegee. Yes, that is what I am aiming for. P2P is a tad difficult, especially when you are not very good at programming and networking in the first place.

Hopefully the devs notice this and actually dev so they can get more money and we can get official multiplayer.

Sorry about the lack of development lately. School and ROBLOX have both been taking away my time. I might release a little update this week. Help would really be appreciated, even if it is just poking me if I am not working :P.

Also, thanks for the encouragement guys.

At one point we had a working multiplayer, not entirely sure wtf happened, but if this works, you'll go down in fame.

It would be really nice if you had something constructive to say or stating that you were going to help :P.

Anyway, it was really hacky and I think it used an Arduino as it's server. Yeah, you can see why it broke.

It was because it was coded mostly in Lua and nobody updated it to work with the new Cortex stuff (it was made roughly around B23 iirc).

Haha, it was simple enough that it could have. I remember writing a post about using Arduinos as a dedicated server, but I never got the server application stable enough that you could plug it in and forget about it.
