I am looking for someone to develop a server for a multi user virtual chatroom. The server must allow our users to log in, we must be able to manually add/remove accounts to the server. We need to have atleast 5 seperate levels of access.
4: Normal Members
5: Banned Users
We need to be able to easily change the level of access for Members.
We need to allow our Members to use a tool to request help from a Moderator. This means when they send the message, only Moderators and Staff should revieve the message.
Our users will have the ability to chat and navigate between our "rooms". You will need to work closely with our client side programmer concerning this.
The server must be able to handle thousands of connections, without causing lag on the game.
You will also have to work closely with the client side programmer.
This is what our client side programmer told us:
"Basically there would be a validation command, which accepts or deny a player login, and a lot of commands to keep all the clients in sync within a room. Those exact commands will be defined by the
server developer, since they have to minimize the amount of data to be passed around but at the same time try to keep every different client as synchronized as possible. This is the part of the server that would require a more specialized videogame knowledge, that's why finding somebody experienced in multiplayer games definitely would help."
