[Solved] [Multiplayer] and Windows Phone

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Wed Nov 05, 2014 11:32 pm

Hi there!

Ill make it short: duo to MS's lack of support for WebRTC (http://caniuse.com/#search=webrtc) its not possible to use the multiplayer function on mobiles (speaking of Windows Phone 8.1GRD1+).

Does someone know if it (maybe magically :D) works, when you publish your game as an application? Maybe something is setted up by VS - I have to wait a few days untill I can buy my MS dev account, so I cant try it atm :/ - could be usefull on a another feature I want to include in my game.

I know, that it'ld be possible to use ws instead (as I read on a tutorial a few days ago) - but if Construct features a built-in multiplayer plugin (which is kinda awesome through some info I got about it :D), Ild more likly to use this one instead of a "this should work - somehow" solution. Even when Im not needing any real-time-on-screen calculation.

Regards,
Proxymity

No, it won't work. But IE recently announced they are working on ORTC, a variant of WebRTC, so we should be able to support multiplayer in IE eventually.

Thanks for the info! Found this: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/ie/archive/2014 ... e-web.aspx :D ... and then Im thinking Im up-to-date with MS related stuff.. :geek:

Im not much a Microsoft Fanboy, but my hopes in Windows 10 are big.. especially on supportet technologies in IE.

Thanks anyway for our answer Ashley!

Necroing this thread to see what the state of support is. It looks like edge is mostly ready for WebRTC http://iswebrtcreadyyet.com/ unless we need datachannels. But I get the "not supported on this device" on microsoft edge. So using mp in windows applications is not possible right now sadly.

Is the plugin outdated, or are we still waiting on MS to incorporate more support?
