What do you guys think about setting up D2GS and W2GS to be split by packet type GameServer and GameClient, the packets are related to each directly Server//Client each direction the packets are wildly different.. If naming scheme's were updated to Diablo II Warcraft III (Game title), then D2GS, D2GC, W3GS, W3GC (or anything similar) it would probably help organization in the long run..
I've been hesitant about adding S>C packets for D2 because of this...

... i don't understand.... how is D2GS and W3GS any different? client sends -> to server then server responds -> to client just like all the other protocols.. we don't setup BNCS and BNCC...

LordVader

01:55 PM

D2GS the packets aren't like bncs and mcp where the send and recieve packet basically match up.. In D2 the C>S packet for 0x15 is to send chat to game while the S>C packet 0x15 is to reasign player at position.
None of the D2GS C>S packets corrispond to the S>C packets the way they do for bncs/mcp etc. I'm assuming its the same way for War3.

Poke thru this sometime will give you an idea of what I mean:
http://files.serverhash.com/code/other/D2Packets.chm

Compare the d2 packets for 0x15, 0x26, 0x16 server > client vs client > server they generally have nothing to do with one another unlike bncs/mcp where they generally are a responce or similar type of information etc.

The bnls server status script checks status every hour, so if a server goes down right after the script checked, the site wouldn't see it until it checks back a hour later. Maybe that's what you saw? If the bnls server was down for more than a hour, and the site still said it was online, then yes, there's a problem. Can you tell me which is the case?

Any idea what this means? It comes from a Auto Refresh program for Warcraft III... And the header says that it's Warcraft III (F7 1E 33 00), It sends 0x1E, with the length of 51 (0x33) bytes... The name is AutoRefresh, which accounts for the 41 75 74 6F 52 65 66 72 65 73 68...

Add Telnet/Chat-icon packets to the packet list, if you will. Contact me for the full list, since I haven't seen anyone besides myself have the complete, correct, list. I can also help add the documentation on each Telnet packet.

On a side note, that should be highly noted, you need to sanitize your PHP to SQL code (use the PHP function stripslashes or addslashes, one of those two). In order to add a ' you need to backslash it \' which some people don't know how to do.

Used By Icons:
- Get some pics (or tell me which pics go to which) for me and I'll add them.

SCGS Packets:
- Will be added into the new BnetDocs (labs.bnetdocs.org). This current version that we're using (www.bnetdocs.org) needs a bit tidying up if it were to hold SCGS. If anyone would be willing to donate the SCGS packets, I'll set the category up for you to add the packets into.

Oh... I'll port over the rest of the Documents then, haha. ~ Ported the missing documents over. I noticed the spacing and formatting on some are incorrect, that's due to the fact that I just used "View Source" and copied the HTML since I did not have editing rights on the old docs. Can easily be fixed.

As far as the "Used By" icons go, I think we'll have to make them, which isn't a big deal. I'll see if Heinermann can find anything from the games, otherwise i'll just make something.

Any ETA on BnetDocs v2?

EDIT: I was also wondering why we don't generate the packets for Java...?

Jailout2000
Sep 25, 2010
05:59 PM

The old BnetDocs is all HTML based. There is no user database or anything for it, I don't even have editor access myself unless you count having access to FTP. It all is strictly html files on the server. Don copied it all from the original Valhalla Legends-version of the BnetDocs, which did have a user system but he didn't have access to it, so he just wrote a script to gather all the files and he placed them here under /old/. Most of our packets were imported from that old version, hence why some packets still have Related links not as links, but as text (part of the Remarks section).

The ETA on BnetDocs v2 is on hold as far as I know. Don and I were originally going to release it alongside the StarCraft II release, but that didn't happen. Right now I think Don is busy with his work and I've been busy with school and other things, I have been however doing some side-coding on it, and last night I put up my own ad on the right panel, if you refresh a few times you'll see it; it's not on priority so it may take a few refreshes.

The generated Java packets isn't even in the website code, and would need to be coded in order to be generated. I'll see what I can come up with. I think it would be a great idea seeing as JBLS is written with Java, and so are some other bots that connect with Battle.net.

Jailout2000
Sep 25, 2010
06:04 PM

Hmmm, just an idea, but I think it would help if the documents were categorized. I'll see if it is feasible for that, and what categories would be needed.

@Sixen: Notational Conventions needs to be merged with Sizes & Types. They are mostly the same thing. Sizes & Types was here first, but Notational Conventions was here longer, if that makes sense.

Sixen
Sep 25, 2010
08:53 PM

Deleted Notational Conventions, merged the missing data into Sizes & Types, and renamed that document to "Notational Convention (Sizes & Types)."

Generating Java packets shouldn't be hard at all, since the website already generates the other languages already. Should be really simply, for the most part you can just use code from the other lang. If I had access, I would totally do it myself.

Bnet docs v2 needs some work, but looks pretty good. Too bad it wasn't up.

Sorry about have not finished bnetdocs v2-- been busy with work and college. two jobs plus college sure isn't easy. I work on it when I'm able to. Jailout-- go ahead and delete the Kadre ads. Leave the bnetdocs ad and your ad up. Thanks for setting your ad to low priority.

I do monitor comments/changes on bnetdocs, so rest assured I hear you guys. =)

As for the java packets, both of you are correct; the links for generating those are hard-coded but isn't hard to edit and add. The actual generation itself is not hard-coded; all I need to know is the proper syntax for those variables, I plug in the mask into the code, and the code will take care of the rest.

Something to add to v2 - quoting other people's comments. Just a thought. It would be sexy to be able to do that.

@Don: I will go ahead and remove those ads. Also I noticed the priority system doesn't even work, so I put both of them on a priority of one (1).

@Sixen: Cool. And yes, v2 needs work, that is why it has never left the labs. The biggest thing if I recall correctly is the navigation submenus (for the packets) and the "surprise" that only Don and I know about.

As for the packet names/prefixes-- those pre-date my taking over BNETDocs from Arta, so for the sake of consistency, I kept those.

v3 is still under development. Still, yes, mainly because I'm the only one working on v3, and time is simply something I lack. I do plan on resuming work on v3 eventually. It's been a few years since I worked on v3, and I'm considering overhauling v3 since it's based on old obsolete code. Not too sure though. But one thing I do know for sure: once v3 is finished and released, it'll be my last update for v3.

As for packet names, feel free to rename to your own conventions. Just keep in mind that when you talk about them to others, don't be surprised if the others get confused as to what packets you're referring to. There's a reason why people left the names as is-- it's not because the names are appropriate, it's left as is for the sake of consistency so everyone will know what someone is referring to. Using consistency also boosts searchability. It's been in place for more than a decade. So it'll be quite difficult for anyone to buck the current conventions. But you're welcome to try. Usually, the name convention comes from the developer who originally researched the protocol and managed to reverse engineer it first, as well as released the results. And usually people just go along with whatever convention that person chose.



Jailout2000
Sep 22, 2011
07:43 AM

And to add to what Kyro has said about the packet names, I know some of them (if not most?) come from reverse engineering the game itself. Blizzard left names in their binaries, and that's where some of the names come from. There are a few packets that their names were invented, and they note that in their remarks. An example would be SID_LEAVEGAME.

The "SID" I'm not entirely sure where it came from. I assume it stands for Session ID, but that wouldn't make any sense so I've just left it SID in all my notes.

As for W3GS, it stands for Warcraft III Game Server. Why not P, for Protocol, I do not know. I've always heard people use W3GS instead of W3GP. I was the one who added literally everything on W3GP (before me, there wasn't even a section on BNETDocs for it), so feel free to call me out on that. =P

On a side note, we still need to add Battle.net v2's documentation. I added the sections for it, we just need someone to document it and add packets. I know a little about it, and I know that our current conventions on how we do our formatting on the site isn't exactly v2-friendly, but it should be able to handle it to a certain extent. Ask RealityRipple, he has a ton more info than I do and he knows what he's doing.

>Do you mean Starcraft 2 under Bnet v2? Can't you get legal problems in this case?

No. I mean B.net v2. Starcraft II runs on B.net v2, B.net v2 doesn't run on Starcraft II.
And yes, we could if we make notes specific to World of Warcraft which is a subscription-based (you pay money) service. As long as there's no money involved in what we document about Battle.net v2, it can be put up. More info can be found in our legal page.

Furthermore, Battle.net v2 works at bit level rather than byte level. This means that our current documentation techniques (like having a packet ID as a byte in our references) would have to be looked over, or "understood" to be seen as bits even though we store and make use of it as bytes.

Battle.net v2 uses 7 bits for a packet ID if I recall correctly (I may be wrong). There is no packet length descriptor. The header is 11 bits of data. The remaining bits are left for packet-specific data, also known as the body of the packet. In addition, a single bit (a boolean) is used in the header to tell you if you're in a channel or not; I'm not sure exactly how that works or why its there.

Also there is an RC4 encryption algorithm that Battle.net v2 uses. The protocol itself is not encrypted; you can see the packet headers yourself without any decryption being involved. I'm not exactly 100% sure how the encryption works or how its used, but I know it is present.

And in case anyone is curious, I do have access to a private SVN project regarding Battle.net v2's protocol. It has a lot of work done towards it.

Facts about Battle.net v2:
- It works at bit level, not byte. Though some data is still read as DWORDs, etc.
- It uses NLS, a modified SRP encryption protocol.
- It is used with SC2, WoW, and D3, and will later be used in all Blizzard PC games.
- It uses an RC4 encryption, but not on every packet and/or not in the packet header (not sure which).
- Lots of work has already been done towards reverse engineering it.

Again, we should contact RealityRipple and see if he could help us document some of it here. Perhaps give him FTP/MySQL access so he can modify our system for compatibility with Battle.net v2.

Thanks, Captain. But are you planning to document SC2, and if yes - read above.

> legal page.
tl;dr

>we could if we make notes specific to World of Warcraft
It's a pity because there is a working WoW emulator named Mangos and thus the protocol should be better documented.
On the other hand, they have not tried to close PvPGN and at least has not succeed closing Mangos, so maybe nothing happens if you do - WoW is rather old, and there is already a working emulator. SC2 is new, D3 is brand new, and Blizzard surely don't want emulator creation to be speeded up.

Can you give more info about SRP used in SC2/D3?

Ah yes, many of you are living in America. Under circumstances It could be a problem for those of you :)



Kyro

Just wanted to clarify a critical factor:

Servers for StarCraft 2, and those of its ilk are free for access. So we document those and support development in those aspects.

However if it's World of Warcraft, or any of its ilk, forget about it. We do not document the game per se.

The key phrase here is "per se". If Starcraft 2 happens to use a certain aspect of the protocol that World of Warcraft also uses, we still will permit documentation of it here since Starcraft 2 provides free access to the protocol.

To sum it up, if accessing the server and playing on it is free, go for it. Otherwise, no way jose. Hope that clarifies our stance on it. The main reason here is to avoid giving Blizzard legitimate excuses to shut us down via litigation.

>Servers for StarCraft 2, and those of its ilk are free for access.
If you have a valid key. Pirated server allow you to play without - so what's the difference?
I know most people playind on PvPGN servers do that not because they don't have a CD-key, but, for example, because those servers are simply better than official Bnet servers. I just sound it from Blizzard's PoV. There is already working WoW emulator software - and none for SC2/D3. So why should they be more interested to deny developing WoW emulators (which is already developed) than SC2/D3 (which doesn't exist)?

Think of it like this: the money you pay for the cdkey is actually money paid primarily for the software, not the battle.net service (referring to free access). However with WoW, the money paid is mainly (while part of cost, however insignificant) not for the software, it's actually primarily for the protocol, and for server access. The legal implications differ drastically between the two. If you still aren't clear on it, google it.

As for the WoW emulator (Mangos), I can't say much on that matter, but suffice it to say Blizzard, and by relation, Vivendi, are aware of it. As for there not being a BNET 2.0 server emulator -- there actually is. It's not released for general public use. The person who developed it is withholding it, and has thus far only shared it with a limited number of friends -- not including myself (understandably). Blizzard also is aware of this -- but since it hasn't been released, they don't have much to go on. Once again, can't comment further on it. If you'd like more information on what Blizzard has in mind in regards to Mangos, I suggest you contact Blizzard and ask. I think you'll be surprised at how they feel about it. They have been thus far tolerant of BNETDocs, but only because we take care not to tread too much on their toes.

I actually know where the unreleased B.net v2 emulator is being held at, and I have access to its source. It's not on any public server, I can tell you that much. And in addition, there's an older B.net v2 emulator still in the public area -- see here.

World of Warcraft is a service you have to pay monthly for. The money you pay is, as Kyro said, not for the game, but for the online service that the game uses.

Starcraft II doesn't require you pay a subscription for this online service.

Therefore, whatever SC2 uses, we can document, because we're not interfering with their money. If we document something WoW uses, we can face legal issues because now we're documenting something of value, something that people spend money to keep online.

The only reason PvPGN hasn't been taken down is because it is hosted not only in the Americas, but in other regions of the world where the same federal law does not apply. PvPGN is based on bnetd, software which was already in a lawsuit in the United States federal court. Blizzard can't control either of the two from being used because they are offshore, but they can control where it is used in the United States. This is why most PvPGN servers you will find aren't in the United States, because the ones that are will be able to be sued by Blizzard for copyright infringement.

Hope this helps.

Jailout2000, SRP description there is awful. Can someone post differences between standart SRP and Blizzard's, especially g and N?

Is this server hosted in the USA?

>Is this server hosted in the USA?
Yes. And Blizzard makes a trip to this website annually, usually requesting 5-10 pages.

>Jailout2000, SRP description there is awful. Can someone post differences between standard SRP and Blizzard's, especially g and N?
Indeed it is. I made a superscript asking for more info about it. I'm not sure if they are now using standard SRP in Battle.net v2, are using the exact same SRP from Battle.net v1, or a completely new revision that they may have made.

You should comment there about someone posting differences between them, not here. This is the To Do document after all. ;)

Something that actually does need attending to:

- We need a Diablo III news icon.

Yeah, we do, and maybe a Battle.net 2.0 logo as well. I think we should revamp most of the current logos anyway, they're kinda ugly, :(. We should just like... use the game icon, it's obvious to everyone coming here which game it applies to. It'd also solve the issue of having to make new icons.

for years I have hated the Packets Block for having each section already collapsed. Massive scrollage = /rage. Just have them all listed as uncollapsed, it'll be better that way.

Can you enable last changes feed and exclude account reg from there?

Myst_Doom: Put this in your CSS theme to do that:

#a1,#a2,#a3,#a4,#a5,#a6,#a7,#a8,#a9 {
display: block;
}


That took me all of 2 minutes to figure out :). Note you can have only some open by default by listing only some of the a-number sections, they are in the order you see to the left. Note also that they don't collapse unless you click twice the first time since this fix doesn't change the JavaScript but only the CSS. Note also also that this is deplorable and I like it collapsed so would hate anyone who made this official.

@Xpeh- last changes feed is already there. Been for a while.

http://www.bnetdocs.org/logsrss.php

As for the account registration, I asked Jailout to take care of that issue a long time ago- he said he fixed it. I just checked, and it wasn't. Have class in 40 minutes, but I'll yank code open and dig in, see if I can't fix it before I head out.

Okay, I removed the registration stuff from the RSS, and also removed the log of hacks showing up in it. That should take care of it-- a purified changes-only feed. Man, looking at the code brings back memories.

It was there, but then the link was removed. Thanks for bringing it back, too.

??? It's always been there. The link is just only visible after logging in. It was coded like that to encourage people to register. That was before a well-intentioned friend mentioned one could just give the link to others so they could bypass registering and logging in to get to the RSS link. I shrugged, said if they wanted to bypass it that bad, go for it. Heh.

Please add the following message sections for Storm UDP:

Storm UDP Messages [will be for CLS 0 packets]
W2GP Messages [will be for WC2 CLS 1 and 2 packets]
D1GP Messages [will be for D1 CLS 1 and 2 packets]

I'll use SCGP Messages for CLS 1 and 2 packets, for now.

Also, if the C > C packet type is used in a document's related field, it appears as "S > C" instead.
