Enumeration Type Documentation

 

enum GGZGameEvent

A GGZGameEvent is an event associated with the game, that is triggered by a communication from the server or from the game. When a game event occurs, the associated event handle will be called, and will be passed the event data (a void*) along with the (optional) user data. All game events apply to the current game. Game events are usually triggered by calling ggzcore_server_read_data or ggzcore_game_read_data.

See also:

ggzcore_game_add_event_hook

ggzcore_server_read_data

Enumeration values:

GGZ_GAME_LAUNCHED
A game was launched by the player (you). After this the core client should call ggzcore_game_get_control_fd, monitor the socket that function returns, and call ggzcore_game_read_data when there is data pending. This event is triggered inside of ggzcore_game_launch.

Parameters:

data NULL

See also:

ggzcore_game_launch

GGZ_GAME_LAUNCH_FAIL
Your game launch has failed. Triggered instead of GGZ_GAME_LAUNCHED when there's a failure somewhere.

Parameters:

data NULL

See also:

GGZ_GAME_LAUNCHED

GGZ_GAME_NEGOTIATED
Negotiation with server was successful. This should happen some time after the launch succeeds. The core client need do nothing at this point.

Parameters:

data NULL

GGZ_GAME_NEGOTIATE_FAIL
Negotiation was not successful, game launch failed.

Todo

Currently this can't actually happen...

GGZ_GAME_PLAYING
Game reached the 'playing' state. When this happens the core client should call ggzcore_room_launch_table or ggzcore_room_join_table to finalize the game join.

Parameters:

data NULL

 

enum GGZHookReturn

GGZ Hook function return types

Enumeration values:

GGZ_HOOK_OK
Success!
GGZ_HOOK_REMOVE
Remove this hook immediately.
GGZ_HOOK_ERROR
A localized error.
GGZ_HOOK_CRISIS
A major error; stop processing the event.
 

enum GGZLoginType

This controls the type of login a user chooses. A different value will require different information to be sent to the server.

Enumeration values:

GGZ_LOGIN
Standard login; uname and correct passwd needed.
GGZ_LOGIN_GUEST
Guest login; only a uname is required.
GGZ_LOGIN_NEW
New user login; only a uname is required. Password will be assigned by the server (but can be passed along).
 

enum GGZModuleEnvironment

The environment a game frontend expects.

Core clients should offer those game modules which fit their own environment.

Enumeration values:

GGZ_ENVIRONMENT_PASSIVE
No GUI, no interaction with user
GGZ_ENVIRONMENT_CONSOLE
Text console
GGZ_ENVIRONMENT_FRAMEBUFFER
VESA or framebuffer
GGZ_ENVIRONMENT_XWINDOW
X11 windowed mode (default)
GGZ_ENVIRONMENT_XFULLSCREEN
X11 fullscreen mode
 

enum GGZOptionFlags

Enumeration values:

GGZ_OPT_MODULES
Load the default configuration file (unused).
GGZ_OPT_THREADED_IO
Load the game module list.
GGZ_OPT_EMBEDDED
Provide multi-threaded network IO (unused).
GGZ_OPT_RECONNECT
Reconnect automatically after connection loss.
 

enum GGZRoomEvent

A GGZRoomEvent is an event associated with the room, that is triggered by a communication from the server. When a room event occurs, the associated event handler will be called, and will be passed the event data (a void*), along with the (optional) user data. All room events apply to the current room unless a room number is given. Room events are almost always triggered by calling ggzcore_server_read_data.

See also:

ggzcore_room_add_event_hook

ggzcore_server_read_data

Enumeration values:

GGZ_PLAYER_LIST
The list of players in a room has arrived.

Parameters:

data The room id (int *)

Note:

This will only be issued for the current room.

See also:

GGZ_TABLE_LIST
Received the list of active tables.

Parameters:

data NULL

See also:

enum GGZServerEvent

A GGZServerEvent is an event triggered by a communication from the server. Each time an event occurs, the associated event handler will be called, and will be passed the event data (a void*). Most events are generated as a result of ggzcore_server_read_data.

See also:

ggzcore_server_add_event_hook

Enumeration values:

GGZ_CONNECTED
We have just made a connection to the server. After this point the server's socket should be accessible and should be monitored for data. It happens in direct response to ggzcore_server_connect. Note that most events after this will only happen by calling ggzcore_server_read_data on the server's FD!

Parameters:

data NULL

See also:

ggzcore_server_connect

GGZ_CONNECT_FAIL
Error: we have failed to connect to the server. This is generated in place of GGZ_CONNECTED if the connection could not be made. The server object is otherwise unaffected.

Parameters:

data An error string (created by strerror)

See also:

ggzcore_server_connect

GGZ_NEGOTIATED
We have negotiated a connection to the server. This will happen automatically once a connection has been established, if the server socket is monitored.

Note:

This just means we've determined ggzd is at the other end.

Parameters:

data NULL

See also:

ggzcore_server_read_data

GGZ_NEGOTIATE_FAIL
Error: negotiation failure. Could be the wrong version. This will happen in place of a GGZ_NEGOTIATED if the server could not be negotiated with.

Parameters:

data A useless error string.

See also:

ggzcore_server_read_data

GGZ_LOGGED_IN
We have successfully logged in. We can now start doing stuff. This will not happen until the client sends their login information.

See also:

ggzcore_server_login

Parameters:

data NULL

See also:

ggzcore_server_read_data

GGZ_LOGIN_FAIL
Error: login failure. This will happen in place of GGZ_LOGGED_IN if the login failed. The server object will be otherwise unaffected.

Parameters:

data A pointer to a GGZErrorEventData.

See also:

GGZErrorEventData

ggzcore_server_read_data

GGZ_MOTD_LOADED
The MOTD has been read from the server and can be displayed. The server will send us the MOTD automatically after login; it can also be requested by ggzcore_server_motd. It is up to the client whether or not to display it. See the online documentation (somewhere?) about the MOTD markup format.

Parameters:

data Pointer to a GGZMotdEventData including the full MOTD text.

See also:

ggzcore_server_motd

Todo

The MOTD cannot be accessed outside of this event

See also:

ggzcore_server_read_data!

GGZ_ROOM_LIST
The room list arrived. This will only happen after the list is requested by ggzcore_server_list_rooms(). The list may be accessed through ggzcore_server_get_num_rooms() and ggzcore_server_get_nth_room(). Until this event arrives these functions will be useless!

Parameters:

data NULL

See also:

ggzcore_server_read_data

GGZ_TYPE_LIST
The list of game types is available. This will only happen after the list is requested by ggzcore_server_list_types(). The list may be accessed through ggzcore_server_get_num_gametypes() and ggzcore_server_get_nth_gametype(). Until this event arrives these functions will be useless!

Parameters:

data NULL

int ggzcore_server_remove_event_hook_id (GGZServer * server, const GGZServerEvent event, const unsigned int hook_id)

Remove a hook function with given ID from the event's hook list.

Parameters:

server The GGZ server object.
event The server event the hook is associated with.
hook_id The ID of the hook event.

Returns:

0 on success (hook removed); -1 on failure (no hook removed)

Note:

The hook ID is given by ggzcore_server_add_event_hook

 

int ggzcore_server_reset (GGZServer * server)

Reset the server object.

After you've disconnected, call this function to discard all state data and reset the state of the server object. You can then connect again.

Note:

You should disconnect before resetting.

 

int ggzcore_server_set_hostinfo (GGZServer * server, const char * host, const unsigned int port, const unsigned int use_tls)

Set host info for connecting to the server.

Call this function to set host info for the GGZ server before trying to connect to it.

Parameters:

server The GGZ server object.
host A string containing the hostname.
port The port to connect to.
use_tls If set, the connection will be encrypted.

Returns:

0 on success, -1 on error.

Note:

Should never fail when given valid input.

ggzcore_server_connect

 

int ggzcore_server_set_logininfo (GGZServer * server, const GGZLoginType type, const char * handle, const char * password, const char * email)

Set login info for logging in to the server.

Call this function to set login info for the GGZ server before trying to login. This should only be called when the server is in certain states.

Parameters:

server The GGZ server object.
type The type of login to attempt.
handle The username to use with the server.
password The password to use (may be NULL with some login types).
email The email address to use (may be NULL with some login types).

Returns:

0 on success, -1 on error.

 

int ggzcore_table_get_seat_count (const GGZTable * table, GGZSeatType type)

Count the seats of the given type.

Given a table and a seat type, this function returns the number of seats at the table that match the type.

Parameters:

table A GGZ table.
type A GGZSeatType.

Returns:

The number of seats matching the type, or -1 on error.

 

int ggzcore_table_init (GGZTable * table, const GGZGameType * gametype, const char * desc, const unsigned int num_seats)

Set data on a table object.

Note:

Useful when launching a game.

 

GGZTable* ggzcore_table_new (void)

Create a new table object.

Note:

Useful when launching a game.

 

int ggzcore_table_set_seat (GGZTable * table, const unsigned int seat, GGZSeatType type, const char * name)

Set a seat type at a table, pre-launch.

When launching a table, call this function to set up a particular seat at the table. It can also be used to fiddle with already existing tables, but that would be extremely unwise.

Parameters:

table The table object to change.
seat The seat number at the table to change.
type The type of seat to make it (open, reserved, or bot).
name The name of the seat (must be valid for reserved seats).

Returns:

0 on success, -1 on error.

Todo

How do we stop the GGZ client from fiddling with random tables?
