== '''Update Protocol''' ==

This section documents the communication between the client and server over the connection used to stream resources.

=== '''Handshake Response''' ===

After receiving a handshake for the update protocol, the server responds with one of the following packets:

{

! Name ! Id ! Fields ! Description |- ! OK | 0 | style="text-align: left" | * required_resource_sizes: int32[27] | Indicates a successful connection. |- ! OUT_OF_DATE | 6 | None | Indicates that the client is outdated. |- ! SERVER_FULL | 7 | None | Indicates that the server is full at the moment. |- ! IP_LIMIT | 9 | None | Indicates that the client is being rate limited. |- |}

=== '''Packets''' === This section documents the packets sent between the client and server over the update connection.

==== '''Client-to-Server''' ==== All packets sent by the client are 4 bytes long. Each packet includes a 1-byte opcode and a 3-byte payload.

{

! Name ! Opcode ! Fields ! Description |- ! Prefetch Request | 0 | style="text-align: left" | * index: int8 * file: int16 | A passive request for a resource. |- ! Urgent Request | 1 | style="text-align: left" | * index: int8 * file: int16 | An urgent request for a resource. |- ! Client Logged In | 2 | style="text-align: left" | * padding: int24 | Indicates that the client has logged in. May be useful for adjusting response rate. |- ! Client Logged Out | 3 | style="text-align: left" | * padding: int24 | Indicates that the client has logged out. May be useful for adjusting response rate. |- ! Update XOR Code | 4 | style="text-align: left" | * xor_code: int8 * padding: int16 | Proposes a code to be used to encrypt all traffic. May be used to bypass firewalls or related software. |- ! Connection Information | 6 | style="text-align: left" | * version: int24 | Sent after a connection is established. The ''version'' field always has the value 3. |- ! Drop Request Queue | 7 | style="text-align: left" | * padding: int24 | Asks for currently pending requests to be dropped by the server. This packet is restricted to administrators by the client. |- |}

==== '''Server-to-Client''' ==== The server responds to the client's requests for particular resources by sending back the (possibly compressed) files. The data is in the following format:

{

! Field ! Description |- | index: int8 | The resource's index. |- | file: int16 | The resource's file number. |- | compression_type: int8 | The compression type of the file. Can be 0 (uncompressed), 1 (compressed using BZIP2), or 2 (compressed using GZIP). |- | file_size: int32 | The (possibly compressed) size of the file. |- | uncompressed_size: int32 | The uncompressed size of the file. This is only present if the file is compressed (i.e. the ''compression_type'' field is set to 1 or 2). |- | data: int8[file_size] | The (possibly compressed) file data. |- |}

Of particular note is that the response is grouped into 512-byte blocks. For every block after the first, the first byte of the block '''must''' be 0xff (decimal 255).

In addition, if the client has updated its XOR code to be nonzero, the server must XOR each byte of the response with the chosen code before it sends it to the client.
