I agree with above.. badass. When are you planning on opening this up?
I will let in the first group of people in play money mode next week. I am hoping to get one more game up and running first and do a little bit more internal testing.
If this takes off you could make different servers -- a high rollers room, millibit room, so on and so forth.
Great idea. At first I plan on having different rooms like this in the one server. But depending how popular it gets more servers may be opened. I would rather have 200 players in one server than 20 players over 10 servers.
Wow this seems like a really cool idea but wouldn't just a simple java game be insecure? Couldn't it be easily hacked? And when can we try this out?
The Minecraft client is easily hackable. But all the casino code (tables, bets, odds etc) is kept and processed on the server which makes it just as secure as any website.
- What can be hacked: Minecraft client (Change textures for the hacking user only, fly, teleport, run faster, jump higher etc). This has no impact on the casino and most of this can be detected by the server anyway.
- What can't be hacked: The server (Predict outcome of game, place extra bets, change balances etc). This only possible ways to hack this would be finding an entry through a flaw in my PHP/mySQL code or brute forcing the server password (which would take something like over one million years). This is the same way most webservers are hacked.
