Creating Multiplayer Flash Games
Multiplayer games have been possible in Flash since version 4. They are among the most addictive and popular games on the web, yet so few know how to approach creating one.
Jobe Makar, creator of over 50 multiplayer games, will discuss the fundamentals of multiplayer game programming.
In addition to showing many real-world examples Jobe will dissect one complete game. The source code to several multiplayer games-both turn-based and real-time, will be made available for download.
