So do people donate to keep it running or what? Just curious
I'm assuming it's just run voluntarily, i'm sure if they were doing it for profit they probably would be in line for a good suing from Nintendo, but because the official servers are down they are legally allowed to run them, but probably not allowed to profit doing so (Plus only a few hundred people even use the servers)
Yes of course it wouldn't be for profit but just wanted to know who funds it. So it's run voluntarily thanks.
I have written the code by myself from scratch. So it is my code and Nintendo have no rights on it (and they never owned the code of Gamespy). It was possible by watching the traffic only (since 2012), and that's absolute legal in Europe, especially for a discontinued service.
So I see not any problem even If I will make profit.
However, the replacement code is only about 10-15% (or less?) of Wiimmfi. And it is simple query+response code and at MASTER+MS (biggest part of replacement code) is like simple SQL. SAMBA is much more complex, and also allowed worldwide.
But most of the code is based at our ideas: OPENHOST, Wiimmfi portal, ban system, live statistics, region statistics, friend code converter, the coming room watch, mkw-ana connection, and much more.
Aha I see thanks for the clarification
How much money is it to have the server up?
720€ per anno for Wiimmfi and Wii-Homebrew.com
what are the bandwidth requirements on average?
Not much, because only login and matchmaking is handled by the server.
