Thanks. I FINALLY found a Stencylepedia article that supports multiplayer. Just type in " Multiplayer
Games"

You're still going to have to learn code.

No, it's not as simple as that.

You should consider the level of knowledge you need to create a multiplayer system before you get into it. Adding in your own features, especially when as complex as this idea is highly complicated.

That is nowhere near all the code that will be required to run a multiplayer game. You are still going to need to write server side code and set up a host, among many other things. There is not much I can say except, if you are serious about wanting a multiplayer game, you better start researching more in depth about how computers and servers work. Start learning some program languages, such as C or Java, and then research more, might as well learn HTML/CSS and PHP while you are at it.

It takes more than you realize to run a multiplayer game. I suggest learning as much as you can about various languages and more about how computers work. I suggest you start now because it will likely take you well over a year.

Copy and paste made me giggle..;)
...
Don't do that;)

^To add to that, java is AWESOME for socket servers. You could learn java for the server, then make some code in as3 that will send messages to it. you could then wrap the code in a block - so you'd have to code the server, but could still use stencyl for the actual game.

Oh, well look at that. Turns out he was right, and we were all wrong- and to think we doubted him! Sorry for treating you badly snake13, you code wizard. Now I'm sure you'll amaze us with a multiplayer game- see if you can find a 3D article with code that magically makes it 3D, then you'll be able to make a game like Call of Duty all by yourself!

I think I'll just give up on the 3D idea. Plus you're being sarcastic right?

Well for the multiplayer thing I can always ask the creator for help. and he will probaly help me for free  cuz he shared a kit, allowed stencylepedia to do an article multiplayer games. So then I can make my multiplayer game.:)

Yes. Well, you aren't going to do multiplayer or 3D, and with the knowledge of stencyl you have (visible from the help you tried to give on Ask a Question) I doubt you could make a decent 2D game without spending a long time learning (there sure as hell is no copy paste) and treating many others like your butlers. You're disrespectful, expect way too much from others and don't even acknowledge their helping you when they do help you, and you're extremely annoying. I assume you're a kid, so I won't go further than that, but please, stop being so delusional and stop posting about multiplayer/3D- instead learn how to code (either syntax, so you can eventually make a 3D multiplayer game, in years, or stencyl, so you can make a singleplayer 2D game).


Well for the multiplayer thing I can always ask the creator for the old multiplayer kit ( that doesn't work anymore according to rob.) and he will probaly help me for free  cuz he shared a kit, allowed stencylepedia to do an article multiplayer games. So then I can make my multiplayer game.

No. He won't help you because he's inactive, he doesn't work with that anymore, he'd have to do a LOT of coding in order to make it fit well to any custom game like yours without you doing any coding, and you don't deserve anyone's help- if you do want help, ask reasonable things here and be more mature.

If you are legitimately interested (at some points you make it seem otherwise) I genuinely encourage you to start now, I wish that I would have started learning how to code when I was younger. When you are older and more experienced you will be in a much better position already being comfortable with coding.

I would suggest going to http://www.codecademy.com/ It is easy to use and will help you get a basic understanding of many coding languages. Just start with html and then follow there suggestions. It will  be well worth your time and you won't regret it when you are older.

Just do it.
