rip xfire so much god fuck everything else. fuck steam, fuck skype, fuck discord, fuck aim, fuck msn. xfire was for life. until it wasn't
I started reverse engineering the xfire protocol yesterday just for lulz.
There's open source clients out there so it's not hard to do at all. I could make an open source server from scratch and we can all download the old clients and use it
jk, while I've managed to get their client to connect to my server, it's too much work for one person
if you know anyone else who is into reverse engineering shovelware and likes xfire, let me know. Their protocol is easy to implement. If someone else worked on this with me, it wouldn't take much to get friends lists + 1 on 1 text chat working.
