Suggestion: Use of P2P stuff

Post by Proton » 08 Apr 2016, 19:14

Since the project survive on donations, it would be a good idea to have as much P2P stuff as possible. This way community members can contribute more easily (including the current freeloaders). Well, at least i would seed :D

libtorrent:
The client sometimes downloads some stuff at login. It could use a torrent to do that instead of just hitting the server. No need to write p2p code from scratch, something like libtorrent should do the trick. Additionally, the download will most likely just max out the bandwidth of the user since it will be extremely well seaded.

zeronet: https://zeronet.io/
zeronet is a cool system for p2p websites. They are various limitations. But it would be nice to have some of the websites on the zeronet network. A static copy of the wiki and forum would be appreciated. At least I would use them. Because they are so few websites on zeronet (very young project), it will also give additional advertisement to the game.

In #themanaworld-dev (Freenode) we've had discussions a lot of times about implementing bittorrent (or webtorrent or gittorrent) into ManaPlus but no one wants to write the code

libtorrent is not supposed to have alredy done the hard part?

The websites can't use Webtorrent? It's not the whole point of webtorrent? This seams simpler then zeronet.
