I stumbled on this thread during a slow weekend and was inspired to try to clone TradeWars and see where that took me. I completed a simple big bang + ports web version available at:

I probably won't take it farther, but it was a fun excuse to get back into tw coding.

Source code is at https://bitbucket.org/mrdon/pytw


Thanks for sending me this link mrdon, I have barely slept from the moment I started playing with .Net Core:

https://www.microsoft.com/net/core#windows

I really should have watched the /Build keynote this year when Microsoft announced .Net Core, and maybe I will be able to actually go to /Build next year. Some of you know I have been looking for something cross-platform, and I hate EVERYTHING previously available, including Mono (http://www.mono-project.com/). I really wanted to like Mono, but I couldn't even build a Mono project in Xaramin Studio on Windows. I guess you have to build it on Linux first, but it really doesn't seem as portable as I had hoped.

Then we have Windows "Universal" apps, which ONLY run on Windows, but they share the same code base as .Net Core, which is now portable across Windows, Linux, and Mac. It is designed to run in lightweight environments like Docker and Windows Nano server. I wonder if I can run it on my Raspberry Pi :)

It's not ready for prime time yet, heck, they haven't even released it... I have been playing around with RC2 though. I really with they had called it something else. Every time I Google something, it return .Net Framework Examples. .Net core is similar, but not the same. for example:

System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(1000);

becomes:

Await Task.Delay(1000);

Delay is actually asynchronous, so you have to use the await command to make it block the thread. It looks like they have removed a lot of synchronous command in favor of their async counterparts. It's all part of a new and super easy to use multi-threading model.

When I finally figured out the documention was on Github instead of MSDN, that helped a lot:
http://dotnet.github.io/api/index.html

Anyway, I hope you have something for you guys to play with soon... and Thanks again MRDON for all the lost sleep... :) lol

hmmm...

“something almost, but not quite entirely unlike a TradeWars helper”

It will be open source and cross platform... Written in C# .Net Core...
