Topic: Game Programming / Multiplayer !

That’s all I know of. Google may be able to help you further.

One more thing

When I was seven, I wanted to be two things: A musician, and a game developer. Both of those things were impossible at the time. Why? Because I had absolutely NO idea how to pursue those dreams.

Then one day, when I was 13, I got my first computer – It was a crappy little hand-me-down dell laptop from the year 2000 with a broken cooling fan and a 20 minute battery life. I loved that damned computer. I thought “Yay, now I can finally be a game developer!”

Initially, I surfed the internet for tutorials. This behavior got me nowhere. I never made any progress until I sat down and learned through the basics. When I did, not only did I obtain knowledge which has helped me in every project since then, but I obtained a deep love and respect for the discipline of programming.

It was six years before I built my first game.

TL;DR

Want to build a multiplayer game? You seem like a smart enthusiastic young person, so go figure it out for yourself. And when you’re done, make a tutorial :P

Topic: Game Programming / Multiplayer !

Firstly – A nice comprehensive beh-hinners tutorial

Secondly – Yahoo documentation. As dry a read as it gets, but thorough.

Player.IO is really nice, but if your planning to make a full-on MMO, get ready to spend a LOT of time learning how.

Topic: Game Programming / AS3: Syntax error

I usually get this error when I have an extra parenthesis floating around somewhere. I think I see it there at the bottom of code 2: try deleting that extra ‘}’ at the bottom of code 2…

EDIT

Oh no, Draco is correct. My bad.

Topic: Game Programming / Kongregate Not Replying to Emails?

There really aren’t as many kongregate employees as one would think. It’s pretty much just one shanty little office building in San-Francisco, so don’t be surprised if your email was overlooked.

Try sending the email again, perhaps with a more striking subject/title. Or perhaps the people on the forums could help.

Topic: Game Programming / URL Question. . .

I had this neat idea for a inBrowser blogging application that allows uses to embed their blogs in a chat-room sort way, using Flash.

In order to do this, I’ll need read/write to the URL in the browser bar, so that users could link to their blogs in a hyperlink. Example:

www.whatever.com/blog_app/user_blog/post=000

The app would recognize the special identifiers in the URL and call up the appropriate content from a server. . .

. . .is this possible?

Topic: Game Programming / Indie Dev looking for ideas

You know, I recently had a great idea for a 3D engine which, instead of using vectors to create shapes, simply uses various panoramic photos arranged in a sequential fashion.

Topic: Game Programming / Indies vs Pewdiepie - Game jam

Oh wow, I had not realized this thread until Shalmezad hit me up on Twitter :P

Oh well, here’s my final result :D!

It wound up being more of a testing of an (extremely beta) game engine I’ve been working on, than a game. But hey, I had fun =]

Topic: Game Programming / GiTD #44 - *Contrats I_love_you_lots/dragon_of_celt s*

My 1st and 2nd votes be going to the dragon_of_celts.

I can honestly say that ‘Cat Jihad’ is the hardest game I’ve ever played. My high score? 3 seconds. I could see it actually being playable if it were turn-based and your allies could move (as you mentioned)

Extra points awarded for the “pre-emptive comment”. :P

As for my entry, I had intended to finish it, but honest to god my ISP decided to deprive my neighborhood of internet service so I couldn’t upload. But oh well! have fun flying through endless space!

I am working on one. I hope it will be ready in time (at least a simple version). One day left, but a lot left to do…

Power through it man! =]

Soo… GiTD todya or no?

By the way, I’ve recently become addicted to twitter, and I’ve been thinking about covering GiTD a bit there, If nobody minds it. It could certainly help attract new players.

Topic: Game Programming / Pick the Tileset I keep!

Question: Top-Down or Side-Scrolling?

If Top-Down, then I’d go for #1 (as it’s less “poppy”, as you said)

But, if Side Scrolling, I’d go for #3.
