Real Time Multiplayer... how?

Hi

I am interested in doing a real time multiplayer game. But I am not sure where to start. I would prefer to reuse someones work (platform or something) so I don't have to reinvent the wheel but I haven't seen anything that fits.

I was interested in the Open Feint Multiplayer but apparently it is more turn based than real time.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Tony

Hey,

For the real time multiplayer you should need socket programming. Here is a link, that might be helpfully: http://www.troubleshooters.com/codecorn/sockets/

Good Luck

thanks for that ... I was looking at a p2p solution like (MyNetwork).

Also suspecting I will need a more complete solution if you go over the internet (security etc). And that was what I was looking for wrt this thread.

I signed up for Open Feint but can only get 2.4 ... so I guess we have to wait for 2.5 (unless they open another beta)
