A lobby server for creating and joining games, as well as chat rooms

Written in Java, AFS was intended as an eventual replacement of the TASServer project started by a user named betalord on the spring forums. The AFS protocol was centered around flexibility and generics, and the server was intended as a minimal message routing system, coupled with authentication.

I decided to build the project ontop of the QuickServer library, using Java 6. I would also implement the TASServer protocol as a bridge module. Due to the limitations of that protocol, I would implement my own protocol specs, and use my lobby client to push through support via new features.

In the end the project was mothballed for an indefinite period.
