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.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Cheers,
Kirupa

Thread: Options for multiplayer game

  1. #1

    Fla Box Options for multiplayer game

    Hi guys,

    I am pretty new to making networked games, especially for Flash. From what I've been able to find, if you want a multiplayer component to your game, you need to get a backend server to handle matchmaking and game logic.

    For high scores, Mochi provide a free service, is there something similar for serving multiplayer games? Or do you have to get hosting from a site that supports running your own custom server like SmartFox.

    Thanks.

    As far as free services go there is http://nonoba.com
    They provide a free API that takes care of the small details, allowing you to focus on the game logic for the backend and frontend.

    You could run your own server out of your home too - I've managed to get smartfox up and running with apache running in the bg without much difficulty.
    you = function(){
    setEnabled( true );
    live();
    setEnabled( false );
    }

    nonoba.com's api looks interesting. I am taking a look at it now.
