frogx, Free Online Gaming for XMPP

News

The project is planning to offer a external XMPP component which enables Jabber servers to support Multi-User Gaming services. For Openfire server there are also plugins to support and manage Multi-User Gaming Services within the admin console. This change of the goals is reflected by moving from this procet from openfire-mug to frogx.

Because of a spam attack I've to reset the ticket system to a few days ago, sorry.

Overview

frogx includes software which enables XMPP Servers to support multi-user gaming services.

frogx implements the free available Multi-User Gaming protocol. This server component handles game rooms, players and spectators. It also offers a framework to allow a easy and rapid development of game plugins.

frogx is brand-new and supports the well-known Tic-tac-toe game. We are looking forward to get an growing community and various game plugins.

frogx is free. All the code is open source and licensed under the GNU General Public License. This means you can get the source code and modify it to suit your needs, as long as you publish the changes you make for everyone to benefit from as well.
