Detailed Description

Common functions for interfacing a game server and GGZ.

This file contains all libggzdmod functions used by game servers to interface with GGZ (and vice versa). Just include ggzdmod.h and make sure your program is linked with libggzdmod. Then use the functions below as appropriate.

GGZdmod currently provides an event-driven interface. Data from communication sockets is read in by the library, and a handler function (registered as a callback) is invoked to handle any events. The calling program should not read/write data from/to the GGZ socket unless it really knows what it is doing.

That this does not apply to the client sockets: ggzdmod provides one file desriptor for communicating (TCP) to each client. If data is ready to be read by one of these file descriptors ggzdmod may invoke the appropriate handler (see below), but will never actually read any data.

Here is a fairly complete example. In this game we register a handler for each of the possible callbacks. This particular game is played only when all seats are full; when any seats are empty it must wait (much like a card or board game).

     // Game-defined handler functions for GGZ events; see below.
     void handle_state_change(GGZdMod* ggz, GGZdModEvent event,
                              const void *data);
     void handle_player_seat(GGZdMod* ggz, GGZdModEvent event,
                             const void *data);
     void handle_player_data(GGZdMod* ggz, GGZdModEvent event,
                             const void *data);

     // Other game-defined functions (not ggz-related).
     void game_init(GGZdMod *ggz); // initialize a game
     void game_launch(void);           // handle a game "launch"
     void game_end(void);              // called before the table shuts down
     void resume_playing(void);        // we have enough players to play
     void stop_playing(void);          // not enough players to play

     int main()
     {
         GGZdMod *ggz = ggzdmod_new(GGZ_GAME);
         // First we register functions to handle some events.
         ggzdmod_set_handler(ggz, GGZDMOD_EVENT_STATE,
                             &handle_state_change);
         ggzdmod_set_handler(ggz, GGZDMOD_EVENT_JOIN,
                             &handle_player_seat);
         ggzdmod_set_handler(ggz, GGZDMOD_EVENT_LEAVE,
                             &handle_player_seat);
         ggzdmod_set_handler(ggz, GGZDMOD_EVENT_SEAT,
                             &handle_player_seat);
         ggzdmod_set_handler(ggz, GGZDMOD_EVENT_PLAYER_DATA,
                             &handle_player_data);

         // Do any other game initializations.  You'll probably want to
         // track "ggz" globally.
         game_init(mod);

         // Then we must connect to GGZ
         if (ggzdmod_connect(ggz) < 0)
             exit(-1);
         (void) ggzdmod_log(ggz, "Starting game.");

         // ggzdmod_loop does most of the work, dispatching handlers
         // above as necessary.
         (void) ggzdmod_loop(ggz);

         // At the end, we disconnect and destroy the ggzdmod object.
         (void) ggzdmod_log(ggz, "Ending game.");
         (void) ggzdmod_disconnect(ggz);

Typedef Documentation

typedef struct GGZdMod GGZdMod

A GGZdmod object, used for tracking a ggzd<->table connection.

A game server should track a pointer to a GGZdMod object; it contains all the state information for communicating with GGZ. The GGZ server will track one such object for every game table that is running.

typedef void(*) GGZdModHandler(GGZdMod *mod, GGZdModEvent event, const void *data)

Event handler prototype.

A function of this type will be called to handle a ggzdmod event.

Parameters:
mod The ggzdmod state object.
event The event that has occured.
data Pointer to additional data for the event. The additional data will be of the following form:
  • GGZDMOD_EVENT_STATE: The old state (GGZdModState*)
  • GGZDMOD_EVENT_JOIN: The old seat (GGZSeat*)
  • GGZDMOD_EVENT_LEAVE: The old seat (GGZSeat*)
  • GGZDMOD_EVENT_SEAT: The old seat (GGZSeat*)
  • GGZDMOD_EVENT_SPECTATOR_JOIN: The old spectator's data (GGZSeat*)
  • GGZDMOD_EVENT_SPECTATOR_LEAVE: The old spectator's data (GGZSeat*)
  • GGZDMOD_EVENT_LOG: The message string (char*)
  • GGZDMOD_EVENT_PLAYER_DATA: The player number (int*)
  • GGZDMOD_EVENT_SPECTATOR_DATA: The spectator number (int*)
  • GGZDMOD_EVENT_ERROR: An error string (char*)


Enumeration Type Documentation

enum GGZdModEvent

Callback events.

Each of these is a possible GGZdmod event. For each event, the table may register a handler with GGZdmod to handle that event.

See also:
GGZdModHandler

ggzdmod_set_handler

Enumerator:
GGZDMOD_EVENT_STATE  Module status changed This event occurs when the game's status changes. The old state (a GGZdModState*) is passed as the event's data.

See also:
GGZdModState
GGZDMOD_EVENT_JOIN  Player joined This event occurs when a player joins the table. The old seat (a GGZSeat*) is passed as the event's data. The seat information will be updated before the event is invoked.
GGZDMOD_EVENT_LEAVE  Player left This event occurs when a player leaves the table. The old seat (a GGZSeat*) is passed as the event's data. The seat information will be updated before the event is invoked.
GGZDMOD_EVENT_SEAT  General seat change This event occurs when a seat change other than a player leave/join happens. The old seat (a GGZSeat*) is passed as the event's data. The seat information will be updated before the event is invoked. Operations include changing of reserved or abandoned seats to open, swapping bot players in and out, making a reservation on an open seat, or even an open seat changing to a player seat if a player changes seats. Note that no new connections are provided nor are connections removed in a SEAT event; thus, if a player is removed via this event you can be sure another SEAT or SPECTATOR_SEAT event will be provided shortly to re-add him to a new location.
GGZDMOD_EVENT_SPECTATOR_JOIN  A spectator joins the game. The data of the old spectator (GGZSeat*) is passed as the data for the event. It can be assumed that the spectator seat was previously empty, so the name and socket given will be invalid (NULL/-1).
GGZDMOD_EVENT_SPECTATOR_LEAVE  A spectator left the game The old spectator data can be obtained via the (GGZSeat*) which is passed as the event data.
GGZDMOD_EVENT_SPECTATOR_SEAT  A spectator seat changed. The old spectator data can be obtained via the (GGZSeat*) which is passed as the event data. The same caveats apply as to GGZDMOD_EVENT_SEAT.

See also:
GGZDMOD_EVENT_SEAT
GGZDMOD_EVENT_PLAYER_DATA  Data available from player This event occurs when there is data ready to be read from one of the player sockets. The player number (an int*) is passed as the event's data.
GGZDMOD_EVENT_SPECTATOR_DATA  Data available from spectator For games which support spectators, this indicates that one of them sent some data to the game server.
GGZDMOD_EVENT_ERROR  An error has occurred This event occurs when a GGZdMod error has occurred. An error message (a char*) will be passed as the event's data. GGZdMod may attempt to recover from the error, but it is not guaranteed that the GGZ connection will continue to work after an error has happened.

enum GGZdModState

Table states.

Each table has a current "state" that is tracked by ggzdmod. First the table is executed and begins running. Then it receives a launch event from GGZD and begins waiting for players. At some point a game will be started and played at the table, after which it may return to waiting. Eventually the table will probably halt and then the program will exit.

More specifically, the game is in the CREATED state when it is first executed. It moves to the WAITING state after GGZ first communicates with it. After this, the game server may use ggzdmod_set_state to change between WAITING, PLAYING, and DONE states. A WAITING game is considered waiting for players (or whatever), while a PLAYING game is actively being played (this information may be, but currently is not, propogated back to GGZ for display purposes). Once the state is changed to DONE, the table is considered dead and will exit shortly thereafter (ggzdmod_loop will stop looping, etc.) (see the kill_on_exit game option).

Each time the game state changes, a GGZDMOD_EVENT_STATE event will be propogated to the game server.

Enumerator:
GGZDMOD_STATE_CREATED  Pre-launch; waiting for ggzdmod
GGZDMOD_STATE_WAITING  Ready and waiting to play.
GGZDMOD_STATE_PLAYING  Currently playing a game.
GGZDMOD_STATE_DONE  Table halted, prepping to exit.

enum GGZdModType

The "type" of ggzdmod.

The "flavor" of GGZdmod object this is. Affects what operations are allowed.

Enumerator:
GGZDMOD_GGZ  Used by the ggz server ("ggzd").
GGZDMOD_GAME  Used by the game server ("table").

enum GGZGameResult

Enumerator:
GGZ_GAME_FORFEIT  A forfeit is (for instance) an abandoned game. The player will not only be credited with the forfeit but their rating/ranking may drop dramatically.
GGZ_GAME_NONE  If the player didn't take part in the game, use this label. For instance if one player abandons the game they might get a forfeit while nobody else is affected.


Function Documentation

int void ggzdmod_check ( GGZdMod ggzdmod  ) 

Log all information about the ggzdmod.

This is a debugging function that will log all available information about the GGZdMod object. It uses ggzdmod_log for logging.

Parameters:
ggzdmod The GGZdMod object.
Returns:
void; errors in ggzdmod_log are ignored.

int ggzdmod_connect ( GGZdMod ggzdmod  ) 

Connect to ggz.

Call this function to make an initial GGZ <-> game connection.

int ggzdmod_count_seats ( GGZdMod ggzdmod,
GGZSeatType  seat_type 
)

Count seats of the given type.

This is a convenience function that counts how many seats there are that have the given type. For instance, giving seat_type==GGZ_SEAT_OPEN will count the number of open seats.

Parameters:
ggzdmod The ggzdmod object.
seat_type The type of seat to be counted.
Returns:
The number of seats that match seat_type.
Note:
This could go into a wrapper library instead.

int ggzdmod_count_spectators ( GGZdMod ggzdmod  ) 

Count current number of spectators.

This function returns the number of spectators watching the game. Note that the spectator numbers may not match up: if there are two spectators they could be numbered 0 and 4. If you're trying to iterate through the existing spectators, you probably want ggzdmod_get_max_num_spectators() instead.

Parameters:
ggzdmod The ggzdmod object
Returns:
The number of spectators watching the game (0 on error)

int ggzdmod_disconnect ( GGZdMod ggzdmod  ) 

Disconnect from ggz.

int ggzdmod_dispatch ( GGZdMod ggzdmod  ) 

Check for and handle input.

This function handles input from the communications sockets:

void ggzdmod_free ( GGZdMod ggzdmod  ) 

Destroy a finished ggzdmod object.

After the connection is through, the object may be freed.

Parameters:
ggzdmod The GGZdMod object.

char* ggzdmod_get_bot_class ( GGZdMod ggzdmod,
const char *  name 
)

Return class for named bot.

Parameters:
ggzdmod The GGZdMod object.
name Name of the bot.
Returns:
The bot's class, or NULL for anonymous bots.

int ggzdmod_get_fd ( GGZdMod ggzdmod  ) 

Get the file descriptor for the GGZdMod socket.

Parameters:
ggzdmod The GGZdMod object.
Returns:
GGZdMod's main ggzd <-> table socket FD.
Note:
Don't use this; use ggzdmod_loop and friends instead.

void* ggzdmod_get_gamedata ( GGZdMod ggzdmod  ) 

Return gamedata pointer.

Each GGZdMod object can be given a "gamedata" pointer that is returned by this function. This is useful for when a single process serves multiple GGZdmod's.

Parameters:
ggzdmod The GGZdMod object.
Returns:
A pointer to the gamedata block (or NULL if none).
See also:
ggzdmod_set_gamedata

int ggzdmod_get_max_num_spectators ( GGZdMod ggzdmod  ) 

Get the maximum number of spectators. This function returns the maximum number of spectator seats available. A game can use this to iterate over the spectator seats to look for spectators occupying them. Since spectators may come and go at any point and there is no theoretical limit on the number of spectators, you should consider this value to be dynamic and call this function again each time you're looking for spectators.

Returns:
The number of available spectator seats, or -1 on error.
Note:
If no connection is present, -1 will be returned.

int ggzdmod_get_num_seats ( GGZdMod ggzdmod  ) 

Get the total number of seats at the table.

Returns:
The number of seats, or -1 on error.
Note:
If no connection is present, -1 will be returned.

While in GGZDMOD_STATE_CREATED, we don't know the number of seats.

GGZSeat ggzdmod_get_seat ( GGZdMod ggzdmod,
int  seat 
)

Get all data for the specified seat.

Parameters:
ggzdmod The GGZdMod object.
seat The seat number (0..(number of seats - 1)).
Returns:
A valid GGZSeat structure, if seat is a valid seat.

GGZSeat ggzdmod_get_spectator ( GGZdMod ggzdmod,
int  spectator 
)

Get a spectator's data.

Parameters:
ggzdmod The GGZdMod object.
spectator The number, between 0 and (number of spectators - 1).
Returns:
A valid GGZSeat structure, if arguments are valid.

GGZdModState ggzdmod_get_state ( GGZdMod ggzdmod  ) 

Get the current state of the table.

Parameters:
ggzdmod The GGZdMod object.
Returns:
The state of the table.

Returns:
The type of the GGZdMod object (GGZ or GAME).

int ggzdmod_is_ggz_mode ( void   ) 

Is the program running in GGZ mode?

Call this function to see if the program was actually launched by GGZ. This can be used to give an error message if the executable is run outside of the GGZ environment, or for games that will run both inside and outside of GGZ.

Returns:
A boolean value indicating whether the program is running in GGZ.
Note:
Should only be called by game servers, not by GGZ itself.

void ggzdmod_report_savegame ( GGZdMod ggzdmod,
const char *  savegame 
)

Report the savegame to GGZ.

If a game saves the game data to disk, the directory name, file name or any other associated token can be reported to GGZ. In the case of a continuous game log, the reporting should happen at the beginning as to allow the continuation of the saved game.

Parameters:
ggzdmod The ggzdmod object.
savegame Name of the savegame file within the game's directory.

void ggzdmod_request_num_seats ( GGZdMod ggzdmod,
int  num_seats 
)

Tell GGZ to change the number of seats at this table.

Note:
This functionality is incomplete, and should not yet be used.

void ggzdmod_set_gamedata ( GGZdMod ggzdmod,
void *  data 
)

Set gamedata pointer.

Parameters:
ggzdmod The GGZdMod object.
data The gamedata block (or NULL for none).
See also:
ggzdmod_get_gamedata

int ggzdmod_set_handler ( GGZdMod ggzdmod,
GGZdModEvent  e,
GGZdModHandler  func 
)

Set a handler for the given event.

As described above, GGZdmod uses an event-driven structure. Each time an event is called, the event handler (there can be only one) for that event will be called. This function registers such an event handler.

Parameters:
ggzdmod The GGZdmod object.
e The GGZdmod event.
func The handler function being registered.
Returns:
0 on success, negative on failure (bad parameters)

ggzdmod_get_gamedata

void ggzdmod_set_playerdata ( GGZdMod ggzdmod,
bool  is_spectator,
int  seat_num,
void *  playerdata 
)

Set a playerdata pointer.

Each GGZ seat (regular or spectator) can be given a "playerdata" pointer that is available through ggzdmod_get_seat. This is useful for preserving state data when a particular player changes seat, as the playerdata will be preserved across the seat change.

Parameters:
ggzdmod The GGZdMod object.
is_spectator true iff it is a spectator seat
seat_num The number of the seat
playerdata An arbitrary pointer to be set as the playerdata

int ggzdmod_set_state ( GGZdMod ggzdmod,
GGZdModState  state 
)

Change the table's state.

This function should be called to change the state of a table. A game can use this function to change state between WAITING and PLAYING, or to set it to DONE.

Parameters:
ggzdmod The ggzdmod object.
state The new state.
Returns:
0 on success, -1 on failure/error.
