Tibia Game - Port to Mac

Post: #1
I'm looking for anyone who can Port a Client of Tibia from Windows to Mac, the client in question is 'YATC' (Yet Another Tibia Client) - This client, unlike the Official Tibia Client, is Open Source. It is written in SDL and OpenGL, and already running on two platforms (PC and Linux). The Official Developers will accept patches made with 'SVN diff' and will try to maintain compatibility with least effort on your part, and at some point the developers may choose to jump in and maintain compatibility themselves, if time and resources provide.
You can look at the download site here.
This offers the normal .exe file in one download and the Open Source Codes download.


Source code (tar.gz)
Binary Win32 i386 (zip)

You can also download the Open Source Folder put in a .DMG here.

To look at the notes, descriptions and other things about YATC, please refer to [url]http://otfans.net/showthread.php?t=95075[/url] .

It might be important to tell them it's written with SDL and OpenGL and that it's already running on two platforms. This might attract some developers since obviously it's easier to port an already portable application. Tell them the official developers will accept patches made with "svn diff" and will try to maintain compatibility with least effort on their part, and at some point they might jump in and maintain compatibility themselves.

Tibia is a popular multiplayer online computer game hosted on Internet servers. To play Tibia requires establishing a network connection to TCP port 7171 on the server. Depending on your network setup and your Internet Service Provider (ISP), your direct connection to the Tibia server and ability to play the game may be blocked by a network firewall or proxy server.
Setting up a Tibia proxy avoids this common connection problem. A Tibia proxy is a special Internet server (separate from the game server) that does not require a port 7171 connection. Instead, the Tibia proxy server will accept requests on alternative network ports (such as port 80) that will typically not be restricted by firewalls / proxies. The Tibia proxy, in turn, makes its own direct connection to the game server (on port 7171) and translates messages between the Tibia server and your client in real time to allow game play.
To set up a Tibia proxy, simply obtain a list of Open Tibia proxy servers and their IP addresses from gaming forums and configure your client to use them. The list of active Tibia proxies and addresses changes regularly. Take care in choosing a good Tibia proxy as some may suffer from slow network performance or be operated by questionable parties seeking to steal account information.
