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.

    As far as free services go there is
    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 );
    setEnabled( false );

  4. #4's api looks interesting. I am taking a look at it now.
