Multiplayer Extension - call for BetaTesters

Hello,

For my multiplayer extension I'm looking for some beta-testers.

Since the extension is for experienced Stencyl users I kindly ask for this
  • Simple game (mechanic)
  • Emphasis on Client-As-A-Server model
  • Advice/Feedback on the blocks

The extension will not work on Flash and I don't have the resources anymore to publish/run on iOS, but I would like to know if the extension works on iOS.

The following platforms are tested:
  • HTML5
  • Windows
  • Android

The extension is based on Colyseus https://colyseus.io/
On their forums I published a work-in-progress post: https://discuss.colyseus.io/topic/197/stencyl-haxe-extension

It works on websockets instead of UDP.

Some demo gifs
Client-As-A-Server

Physics (collision) demo

TurnBased

Lock


You will receive:
  • Demo stencyl files
  • Extension
In case you want to run your own server you need to know Linux and it helps if you are familiar with Docker.
But you can use my server for testing purposes.

I offer to help you to port your simple game to a multiplayer version. It helps if you want to share your work.

As a start I would advice to alter the demos to fit your need and see what can be improved on.

I'm looking forward to work with you.

Kind regards from

Nice Mdot, I remember testing with you a few years ago the udp extension, congrats for the perseverance! :)
As always I would like to test it: A real time multiplayer game is something I always wanted to do.
So I'm definetly interested.
Let me know what I need to do (I don't have linux skills tho, but I can definetly make a simple game to test it out).

GREAT!!! I look forward in working with you.

I will PM you the comming week with the information.

UDP Extension was indeed not the best way to get more platforms to work together!

The fact that Colyseus is supported, maintained and used by multiple people is another benefit of using it.

Kind regards from

Hi Alessandro,

Yesterday I have sent you a private mail from this forum. During sending the forum gave an error message. Clicking on OK it actually said that it did send. But the copy of the mail wasn't in my inbox.  I'm not sure if you have received it  :o
If not, please notify m.e. here or on Discord and I will re-send.
