We are searching Delphi developpers than can modify our current Multiplayer Poker Software written in delphi language.
There is some bug (known and unknown) to fix in the gameserver.
So, we wish to have an admin interface written in PHP and some things to add in the administration software.
Note : Poker client & Poker server + all related tools are written in Delphi 7 enterprise with some components like G32 and mxoutlook. The database used is MS SQL SERVER 2000.
So your job will consists in making the software without any bugs.
Adding a PHP interface letting player to register, deposit and all other things that there is in a poker room.
There is so some addon in the Administration console (written in delphi) that will have to be added later...
So, if someone can be able to convert the software from Delphi to C# (without having to write PHP and fix bugs, only translation) this can be done so.
Please only bid if you are really relevant for that job.
So, we will only pay on results due to lot of scams we already had with such website. (max bid is $1000)
Some of knowns bugs :
1) When you run out of money it keeps folding blinds instead of asking you to buy in and stopping the game.
2) Tournament play hangs and crashes after a winner is selected.
3) NEED a redundant service to run in the background to restart the server in case of a crash.
4) NEED a PHP web interface to create accounts, view balances, and then pay processing if it comes to that.
If there is anything else that anyone has found, Please let us know.
The hardest issue to fix is handling disconnects.
The client handles it very badly now an fixing it is extremely tricky as you need to start from the very bottom (networking layer) and work your way up to the game.
The server "gets stuck" more often than it crashes and getting it unstuck requires a reboot of the machine. Of course you could try to kill the process but I have no idea how you would do it programmatically under Windows.
Figuring out that the server is stuck requires pinging it or something like that and I don't believe pinging is supported.
