Im running a small private Java based mmo game server, and looking for someone who has excellent knowledge of java to help debug and fix an ongoing problem we're having. This is an mmo game server so experience with mmo games is a plus. Also we're running the server on linux so linux experience is required.
Basically the problem is it appears that something in the java gets bugged or crashes, and causes many game functions to stop working, such as player regen, chat, teleporting, players disconnecting and others.
We've been told its a problem with how the "blocking i/o" is coded in java and requires changes to the network parts of the code for more stable connections.
The bug occurs randomly, which is not really a network overload issue, but a random chance thing, so the more people, and more people in same area increase the chance this issue occurs.
The problem occurs randomly, can be within 1 hour or go upto 10-12 hours. Usually if you wait 15-30 minutes the problem corrects itself and all the game functions work again. And sometimes the issue is worse including mass player d/c in a single area and requires the game server to be restarted.
I looking for someone who can help debug whats causing this regen bug, and to fix it. Please contact me if you have further questions. Looking for serious java experts to develop and test results. Will provide source code to qualified bidders for review before accepting project.
