project description
Project Description
  • Simulate a card game over the Internet
    • Allow players to communicate
    • View and handle the cards
    • Make decisions
      • Place bets, fold, etc.
  • Support for multiple games
    • Project should be flexible to support any card game
      • Game should run by a modular, interchangeable rule engine
user requirements
User Requirements
  • Internet Connection
    • Preferably high speed
  • .NET Framework
    • Supported Operating Systems:
      • Windows 98 or higher
      • Linux, Solaris, Mac OS X
        • www.mono-project.com
development environment
Development Environment
  • Application will be written in C#
    • Visual Studio 2008
    • Code will be documented using XML Comments
    • Code should pass FxCop code analysis
      • Static code analysis to ensure proper practices, naming conventions
  • Server module will be deployed on a Windows Server 2008 machine
high level modules
High Level Modules
  • Server Module
  • Client Module
  • Networking
  • User Interface
  • Game Engine
  • Game Entities
high level modules cont
High Level Modules Cont.
  • Server Module
    • Deployed on a dedicated machine
    • Continuously listen for connections
      • TCP/IP
    • Send and receive data to and from clients
    • Solicit actions from players
    • Broadcast player actions to other players
high level modules cont9
High Level Modules Cont.
  • Client Module
    • Deployed on the end user's machine
    • Connect to game server
    • Pass and receive messages to and from game server
high level modules cont10
High Level Modules Cont.
  • Networking Module
    • Basic functionality and classes used by both Client and Server modules
      • Packets, Serialization
high level modules cont11
High Level Modules Cont.
  • User Interface
    • Bridge between the end user and Client module
    • Receive input from user
    • Display the users currently playing the game
    • Display cards, chips, and other game elements
high level modules cont12
High Level Modules Cont.
  • Game Engine
    • Defines the rules of the game
    • Handle the flow and runtime of the game
      • Determine which player needs to act
      • Determine what actions are valid for each player
      • Evaluate winning hands
high level modules cont13
High Level Modules Cont.
  • Game Entities
    • Class definitions for various elements of the game
      • Cards
      • Chips
      • Deck
      • Player
      • Dealer
  • Problem:
    • One team member
    • One semester
    • Unrealistic to deliver a fully featured online card system
  • Solution:
    • Cut scope
    • Prioritize
      • Ensure that the project is a success
priority continued
Priority Continued
  • Main Focus: Networking
    • Client and Server modules will be the highest priority
    • Manage multiple connections
    • Develop a working message passing system
  • Second Focus: Game Entities & Engine
    • Automate the runtime of the game
  • Third Focus: User Interface
    • A basic interface will need to be developed in order to test the game engine and entities
  • User Interface Concept
    • Nothing fancy, just buttons and pictures
end result
End Result
  • Single table of No Limit Texas Hold 'em
    • 1 to 9 players
  • Automated game flow
    • Game Engine determines whose turn it is and asks them for their action
    • If time is running short, this will be substituted with a “human dealer” to perform the duties of the game engine
      • Server Module will have a debugging control panel
  • Support for future enhancements
    • Keep it clean, modular, easy to upgrade
future enhancements
Future Enhancements
  • Security
    • Data will need to be encrypted
      • Out of scope for this semester
    • Integrity of messages must be preserved
      • Man in the middle attacks
      • Identity spoofing
  • Scalability
    • Support for multiple, concurrent tables
    • Greater number of users
other enhancements
Other Enhancements
  • Randomness
    • “Anyone who considers arithmetical methods of producing random digits is, of course, in a state of sin.” - John von Neumann
    • Project will be using standard math libraries, pseudo random numbers
    • Commercial systems use more sophisticated methods
      • Mouse movement of users
      • Temperature readings
