How do I Create a MMO architecture?

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Sun Apr 16, 2017 12:18 pm

Hello all,

I am creating a MMORPG,
don't mind the amount of work needed to create such a game, I am just looking for a way to have a lot of players seeing each others on the same Layout after they logged on their accounts.

What plugin/behaviour can help on this, (except Photon) ? Any tutorial here that I didnt find?

Thank you very much

Construct 2 has built-in multiplayer support. I suggest you check out the multiplayer examples that come with Construct 2, such as the multiplayer Ghost Shooter capx file.

Hello Sol,

Thanks for the reply, I already checked the template and it looks like you need a hosting player. Won't it create a conflict if the hosting player leave the game? I mean, in a MMO, people can join and leave the room without creating issues.

Can the built-in MP support handle this? :)

You have a server run the host instance permanently, while having a client version that will refuse to connect without a host already present.

The host does not necessarily have to be a player.

Thanks for the reply oosyrag,

How can I get a server as a host? Do I have to run an instance of the game for each Layout ?

I'm not sure about the specifics on how syncing is handled across layouts (you probably do not want to use the built in sync if you're making an mmo anyway) , but I do know that messages can be sent from different layouts without any issue. So your host doesn't need to change layouts at all.

As Oos alrready said, yes... you just make a host program that keeps the server running (like Minecraft and similar).
