Multiplayer
« on: February 10, 2019, 04:18:54 AM »
Hi, I'm interested in making a multiplayer game and have some questions. I have playmaker but am yet to use it so, my level is a complete beginner with it but I'm willing to put the work into learning it, so, I was wondering if setting up multiplayer,  if it is super complicated to set-up? Also, do I need any additional plugins to do this? or is there any plugins that work with playmaker that make it easier? My main goal is the app store, though I also plan for google play. The game will be 2D and the style of multiplayer that I'm after is like in card games. I hope it is okay to ask before trying, I really don't want to start something I can't finish so I'm working everything out now. Thanks.

Hi.
Photon addon is very good for multiplayer and supports playmaker.

But i would suggest to do some small simple projects 1st to get familiar with playmaker.
Or follow some full game tutorials.

You can find some tutorials here :

and many more on youtube (for photon with PlayMaker as well)  :)

Hi,

 Indeed, first make a regular game, and take that game as a learning process, once you are comfortable, you can start tackling network games, which are indeed more complex regardless of the coding style, there are simply more concepts to master to produce a network games.

 Bye,
