What is xiloader?
xiloader is the boot loader used for the private server emulation project, DarkStar. xiloader allows users to forcefully launch the game client without the need of PlayOnline. xiloader also hooks the Winsock function 'gethostbyname' to reroute the client connection to allow the game client to connect to private servers.

xiloader also includes a feature called 'hairpin' to enforce an IP rather then use the IP given from a game server. This feature is useful for users that wish to host a server on their local network but use their external IP on the server for outside connections. With hairpin, users can force the client to connect to the server with a local IP address, while others can connect to it with the remote address.


Due to the nature of this project, xiloader is strictly released as a source-only release.

At this time I have taken down the source code for this project due to issues with certain people.
