Raze -- Online Multiplayer??

2010-03-19 16:51:39 by Juice-Tin

That's right, Addison and I have been discussing an online multi-player version of raze. It'll have an experience system, unlockables, upgrades, etc.

But of course, we want to make the best experience possible! Meaning smooth gameplay with no bugs or slowdown, and a fast & reliable online mode.

-- Help from fellow developers --
Right now I'm having a hard time finding a good, fast and efficiant multiplayer Api. So I'm asking all the developers out there, if you know of any good online flash API's, please leave it in the comment. So far I've taken a look at:
- Blossom server, seems okay, but doesn't seem to be as fast or efficient as others.
- Nonoba, looks pretty solid, but you have to integrate your game with their website.
- Smartfoxserver, seemes really good, but you need to pay large fee's to use the stuff. (We may end up going though route).

If you know of any other great multiplayer Api's that I should take a look at, please reply here, or send me a PM. Thanks a lot!

- Juice

Now that I think about it, you could use MMOcha. It's a server by xgen. They made Stick RPG and Stick Arena. MMOcha has little lag too, only thing is that you have to collab with Xgen. Here's some more info:

http://www.mmocha.com/

Juice-Tin responds:

Ah yeah, come to think of it i remember seeing this one too. (I used to play stick arena, it was awesome). Though I don't really want to be stuck collaborating with anyone in specific.

Since if the game gets hugely popular, it's be cool if I had the ability to freely add updates / new content. That might not be as easily possible with some places, and so I'd rather be free of any constraints. At least until the game is completed. Thanks for the suggestion though!

Raze was really great! ;)

Thanks man =)

For a quicker answer i would pm the authors of the current front paged games for example. They are all good authors and if you write a pm to all of them you'll learn many new servers in a quicker way.

Juice-Tin responds:

None of em are using online multiplayer though =(

Have a option to tune down the backgrounds graphics cause thats making us lag.

Juice-Tin responds:

Yup, all the lag issues and bugs should be fixed in raze 2

YEA ITS AGOOD IDEA BUT
ITS TRUE THAT BY WHAT BAZOOCA (SORRY) DONT LOCK ON ON ENEMYS CUZ THE (WHEN YOU JUMP YOUR ACUARACY IS DECREASED AND WHEN YOU DUCK IS INCREASED)
AND CHECK THIS MULTIPLAYER GAMES
BOXHEAD BOUNTY HUNTER
STICK ARENA (BUT THE CONNECTION SUCKS)
PLATAFORM RACING
PLATAFORM BATTLE
AND WHY YOU DONT SEARCH ON INTERNET
THE BEST MULTIPLAYER APIS

P.S. I AM MEXICAN LOL

(Updated ) Juice-Tin responds:

THANKS THE THE SUGGESTIONS
I'LL CHECK THEM OUT!

sup juice. love your raze game. About the multiplayer...

I have been searching for a good multiplayer API for about 2 months now and i gotta say theres only a couple of really good choices.

if you are using as3:
playerio.com has a really good open API. and Its completely free for now since it is in its beta.

if you are using as2:
I would go with smartfox. yes its expensive but i think its worth it with what i have seen so far. I am currently trying to figure it out myself.

If you find a better API for as2 lemme know! AS3 has tons of multiplayer APIs
Hope that helps.

(Updated ) Juice-Tin responds:

Cool I'll check out Playerio.com.
I'm using AS3, but smartfox is actually AS3 too now apparently.

And sorry, I actually haven't seen ANY Multiplayer API's for AS2.. I didn't even know they existed :o

Edit: Wow, PlayerIO may be free now, but they will be charging an arm and a leg when they're out of beta. $500 a month? Yikes..

Sorry, you didnt understand?

With the authors of front paged games you have a small list of good game developers - it doesnt matter if their current front paged games are multiplayer games or not (the probability is way to small!). Its just that you have with those developers some professional contacts you can ask. If you'd write a pm to them, you get more answers that are helpful in less time. The chances they know some multiplayer APIs are good, alhough many of them even have no multiplayer game i think.

But anyway, i hope you won't get problems with developing - i mean, some maps are quiet big, there are many things the computer has to calculate, sometimes there are up to 10 players who are moving really quickly - hope it wont lag too much!

Im sorry for my bad english. Again, GOOD LUCK for this project, i cant wait for the online version of raze -^_^-

I'm not a game designer or any thing but on Armorgames.com they have this game U've probly heard of it its called Colony it has rly good graphics and the server runs great


QuicksmasherQuicksmasher

2010-03-28 08:09:53

Colony is the best multiplayer online game yet -^_^-

But in future, it will share this award with Raze ;)

Dont know which game will be better, they are completely different :S

2010-03-30 16:38:57

Actually, Juice-Tin, if you look at Stick Arena (either one), they both have an update button such as RAZE did, so it looks as if you could update it. Since the last time I played Territory Wars Online (also on XGen) there was a new weapon integrated into it. So maybe MMOcha wouldn't be so bad. You never really know until you try, I suppose.

Hey man, I'm not that big of a programmer, but you might take a look at chaos faction's style of game (not graphics wise, but rather style of graphics, how they used the graphics). GOOD LUCK!

2010-07-18 13:40:27

Cant wait for Raze Multiplayer its gonna be awesome! I have a couple of ideas about what new features multiplayer has:

1.how about a character customisation system but more advanced than raze single player?

2.a level system where you can earn XP and maybe more weapons and armours for your character as you go.

3.some sort of friend system where you can add people, or maybe if thats to complicated to design, just a way of playing with your friends.

there just some of my thoughts, love your work juice tin and i cant wait for raze multiplayer to come out!

Hi! Thanks for even thinking about a second, online raze. (krin shure wont finish sonny 3 anytime soon >:( I think each weapon needs a second attack. Bio uzi could be burst, Rifle could be grenade, etc.

But dont be reading comments, GET MAKIN' THE GAME!!! :D

Hi, i just had an idea for a weapon in the game. A gun that if you shoot and enemy with that either become your personal body guard until they die or join your team for 30 seconds (or death) but this weapon deals NO damage. Like my idea?

Check this, Juice, loads of 'em, right at your disposal.

Lots of online-thingies, but I suggest the one it leads to.
There are descriptions next to the other links on that website in case you don't want a blossom server.

There was a server I saw for Actionscript 3.0 called ServerSocket, I don't know what it includes, but try it if you wish.
