I’m again into multiplayer… Last few evenings I was writing code which will provide the player logging to server. Like all other thousands of online MMORPGs. I thought how it will be if my CarGame goes to multiplayer. I know it could be a great fun, but image how many players will be also destroying your fun too. Then I decided to make my game only a single player. Suddenly an idea came; if you have your own account on which you can sign in again, I can make a “online” game content that could be bought, something like in WOT premium tanks. But here you don’t have to play against noobs or cheaters or too skilled players…
I started with easy things. Video below shows sending messages between client and server. Now yet it’s only one-way. Through client you send what password would you like to use. I do not know why I don’t start with nickname . Then the message is sent on server, which shows clients id and his password. This is everything for this time.
Next I have to write a code that will save the passwords in file and make client message listener to tell if you entered right password. Now I just think of the nearest step, a “super-duper” message protection isn’t needed right now.
Am I going right way or I will lost after few more evenings?
