Online Multiplayer Capabilities

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Wed Jan 04, 2012 11:35 pm

Sorry if this is posted on the wrong place, but I'm seriously curious about what sort of Online Multiplayer capabilities Construct 2 has, if any.

I'd like to make a browser application that allows people logged into the website to have an in-game avatar that can run around and will also show other people's avatars and what they're doing when they are logged in.

The only interactivity I desire between players is basic chat stuff. Initially just dialogue balloons above the character that speaks. Is this possible using Construct 2 alone (along with any plugins that may exist)?

Using C2 alone, no.
You'll have to manage the server side/application outside of C2 for browsers can't act as servers.

Anyway there's been a couple of topics on the subject lately :
here and here, and there's also the chat plugin along with the socket plugin.

So it is doable, but not only with C2, you need to get your hands dirty outside of it ^^

New to the forums, so sorry if the answer to this is obvious and I have missed it. But are there any sure-fire online multiplayer solutions for Construct 2 (using plugins or otherwise) that someone could point me towards?
