Senior Project - PARTY


LAN Party Management System

Senior Project: 2004-2005

A LAN party is a social event centered around competitive multiplayer video games. Large LAN parties can include hundreds of players and computers running many games simultaneously. Having experienced the difficulty of organizing and administrating these events, the sponsor identified the need for an easy to use, comprehensive LAN party administration tool. The goal of this project was to meet that need with a Windows and web-based application.

The system allows LAN party administrators to manage an arbitrary number of game servers from within a single application. It provides a unified interface, independent of the particular game engine, for all the basic game administration tasks, such as changing game options, adding players to games and kicking them out, restarting maps, and querying for game details. In addition to helping administrators set up and manage game servers, the software also continuously collects game statistics and publishes information about players, games, and tournament progress as web pages for players to view.

The system supports six of the most popular first-person-shooter games on the market. The software is designed to easily add support for future games.
