  Links Awakening    
Cooperative

  .: Overview :.    

Link's Awakening Coop. What more is there to say?

The idea was started by Infini and I after talking about making an online game. We figured GB style would be the easiest to work with so we settled on Link's Awakening.

Basically the concept is to recreate Link's Awakening, but this time you can play it with up to 4 players.

1st Player - Green Link
2nd Player - Blue Link
3rd Player - Red Link
4th Player - Purple Link

We also plan on adding at least two more additional "Temples" somewhere down the line. These two focusing heavily on Coop to get complete them.

  .: Features :.    

In-Game map with locations shown of each player.
In-Game Chat.
Achievements.
Shared Resources.*
Secret Unlockables.

*Players will share everything. The same items, the same Rupees, the same Hearts, everything. If one player dies, they all die. If one player steals from the shop, you all face the consequences. If one player is using the sword, the others will have to use another item and so on, I'm sure you get the point.

There are much more features to look out for.

  .: Progress :.    

We are looking to put out a demo for NCFC that at least will be up to the end of the first dungeon.

-Post will be updated with progress-

  .: Screenshots :.    






*Ignore some of the layering issues, I have to fix those up XD

  .: Videos :.

Doesn't look too bad. Link's Awakening is the only Zelda game I haven't played so I might try this out when the time comes. Just out of curiosity, shouldn't Red Link be the 2nd Link and Blue Link the 3rd Link? Usually it goes Green, Red, Blue, and Purple for some of the Zelda games.

Looks amazing, can't wait to try it whenever you release a demo =) In the meanwhile, I have my own project to work on ;)
I like the idea of sharing everything, actually quite original :D

How does it work on the net/connection side? Is it TCP/UDP? Does it work trough firewalls/NAT's(UDP punchtrough)? Will it work for people behind firewalls if the host has open ports, or is it p2p connection?

Just wondering =P

There's such a double standard about religion in the modern world. Catholics can gather, wear white robes, and say "In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti" and be considered normal.

But if my friends and I gather, wear black robes, and say  "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn", we're considered cultists.

TCP mainly, with this few characters in the game at once there isn't that big an advantage to using UDP. As for firewalls I did write some base code for UPNP automatic port-forewarding, though I haven't implemented that yet, so for the moment the server must have an accessible public IP (just foreward the ports, not to hard ;P).

The connection is a pretty simple client/server architecture. The client first  enters the game name they wish to play and then the client queries the master server for the IP address of the games host, which the client then connects to. Not to complex.

Yes, No.

Yup.

There is still the advantage of having UDP hole punching if using UDP ;) But then again, if you implement UPNP you will cover a lot of people, but will it work if it's the ISP that is doing the blocking(As is my case)?

I think i'm going to die...  Oh wait, i'm already dead.
I love LA, I still have the original, (No, not DX) and I am super-duper-calafragic-expealadotiously-HAPPY, that LA is going to be Co-op!

*Drools*

Oh, and how about people with 127.1.1.100 (AKA: Port Forwarding to host games) addresses be able to port forward the game? ._. (I suck at Port Forwarding crap. ><)

...And, since everyone shares the same resources, how will 3 other Link's defend themselves?
I'm curious.

Not sure. Infini will have to answer that one.

I'm curious.

That's up to you and your team. I mean, it is called COOP for a reason ;)
