Deviations from the official dAmn protocol

  • Handshake sends a parameter: server=servername and version (For clients to be able to detect if they are connected to Demon)
  • Demon does not send an error if you use a channel other than main for msg/npmsg/action, It instead sends out a recv packet with the new channel (IE: msg background)

Login System Protocol

  • The login server is running on port 3901.
  • The protocol is VERY Similar to dAmn's protocol.
  • Login packet:
  login username
  • Create packet:
  create username
  • Login response packet:
  login username
  e=ok|failure reason
  pk=pk (If e=ok)
  • Create response packet:
  create username
  • Note: The login system will not give an explicit error for security purposes.
