Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

    You can use any socket server at all. I don't know about Flash Media Server, but I worked on a multiplayer game last summer and used a Java socket server. You could probably find a Java one prewritten, or even write your own in your favorite language. Making an MMO is a pretty intense undertaking though. I would suggest making simpler multiplayer games first, or if you have less experience just some single player games. Also, RPGs are complex enough. I would write a single player RPG first before tackling an MMORPG.

    There are tons. Just google "java socket server". Here's one from Sun. It's actually easier than it seems. First things first, just get the connection running and able to send a message to the flash client that you can trace.

    The XML parsing on the flash side is excellent. It's very easy to use. On the java side it kinda sucks because the Java XML parser is very verbose and requires a lot of code to access things. It's not hard, just annoyting.
