Does Kongregate have any way of creating a multiuser game within their site. Or does a developer have to setup an offsite server using XML Sockets, PHP and connect to that server.
Or is it possible to create a multi user game without having to setup something server side?
any recourse links would be cool.
In order to make a multiplayer flash game, you really have to have a separate server which each flash client can connect to. I hear SmartFox is a pretty general solution for flash stuff, I think it uses an XML protocol or something similar to that. You could write your own server in C++ or Java or something that has socket communication available, but that’s a lot of extra work.
I’ve checked out games using XML Sockets, and PHP. I have a friend who is pretty down with the PHP end. I was just trying to figure if K would eventually include something like this, rather than having to pay for a separate server, traffic. Got a couple projects to wrap up before I jump into multi – user stuff anyway.
