1  Game Development / Networking & Multiplayer / Re: Multiplayer Game platforms, what's out there? on: 2003-04-22 05:52:19
I'm surprised that there aren't any platforms out there that are for free. All of the ones posted here have a cost involved.
I am looking for a platform where one can log in, there are rooms to go into and play e.g. othello or some other game.
My intention was to create a motorbike racing game, like a simple cart game that you watch from above, and hoped that there would be something based on Java, well actually any other language would probably do, but it should be for free.
I've started doing some coding on one, based on JAVA, but then I thought there have to be tons of these platforms out there.
There are quite a few issues with designing games like this, considering performace issue (well especially for a cart game), and firewall issues, and downloading time issues. I've been thinking XML as a transport protocol, but then I thought no that will be way to slow packing and unpacking that, not to mention the extra time in downloading. So I was writing some specs for messages that needs to exists, and wooooh there were many.  The conclusion to this was ofcourse, why reinvent the wheel, so you guys out there who knows about this, if you don't know about a free platform, perhaps you could hint me in the right direction on where to find good information about building one.

Does anyone know of Multiplayer Game platforms that are out there? Java based, not J2EE

I'm just doing something like an othello game or perhaps a small cart game?
