I think that talkinghead's multiplayer plugin will be more advanced than mine. His demo actually works better than mine ;)
That's why I think it's possible to minimize the lag and to synchronize properly the clients.

For now I don't plan on sharing the plugin, I don't know if I'll finish it and at its actual form it could break the projects that use it. Morhaus2012-01-15 22:52:31

Try to keep all the "world processing" on the server.
And try to apply some lag compensation on the inputs from the clients as well as in the clients themselves.

Read again talkinghead's topic, I think he mentions it.
There's also this article I found insightful on the subject.

As smitchell said though, be aware you won't be able to eliminate all the lag, but you can reduce its impact.

Thanks for the article, I read it but the different methods seemed a little bit too complicated for me. I don't know how to make it reachable for any user of my plugin.

I finally got a working demo, with 23 events client-side and 71 lines of code for the server app.js :) No apparent lag, some basic security check for teleport. No need to edit runtime.js, but minimum skills in javascript are needed to adjust the server app.js. I think it's still possible to improve the overall ergonomy of the plugin but it's currently quite simple and easy to use.

Now I'll take a look at nowjs groups ! I'll also try to host a server to run a demo of the plugin.

I'm currently working on another engine so I may not finish this project on Construct 2. I'll edit the topic asap.

[QUOTE=kbdmaster] i like it

Soccer rulez !! :D[/QUOTE] just a note, not sure if this is a soccer or football game, but I saw the CAPS - Shift post, so I thought I'd point it out.

though most countries call what americans call "soccer", "football", and what americans call "football", they call "american football", most americans don't know this, and I'm not sure what they call it in other english speaking places like UK or Australia. so, not sure who the primary intended english audience will be, but just a heads up, in case it's relevant :)lucid2012-02-08 14:21:01
