I would like to suggest that for future updates there is a better folder structure I agree that the patch could be made easier for users to apply and that would cause less headaches for the devs. :) For instance, it would be a lot easier to upgrade if we could just unzip into the install root direc...

I could tell you what I'd like to see if I could use Unity. :)

After it is released for Windows, I'm sure you will have a lot more activity here. I'll certainly be pestering you whenever I can.

Keep up the great work.

I hope that 2.0 will also include UDP support for the Unity API (and others that are not ActionScript)! :)

I'm looking forward to using this. Thanks for your efforts!

You guys realize there will need to be a sub-forum just for this API, right? With Unity coming to Windows soon, popularity of SFS + Unity will skyrocket. ;)

Smartfox doesn't have anything to do with playing sounds, so it's probably not the place to look for the problem. :)

That last part made me wonder... if you store passwords as MD5's in the database (generally a good practice, right?), doesn't that mean you can't use the method from the login tutorial? Since the database password would be an MD5 string, it wouldn't match what the user types in... which means the ge...

I think PixelGame is the only one I *didn't* look at, which follows Murphy's Law, of course. :)

I have now managed to implement this successfully by calling ExtensionHelper.sendRoomList() after the login succeeds. That fires the event to the client so it can handle the onRoomListUpdate event. It would be nice if the tutorial got an update with a bit more information on how the login process ch...

I apologize for being thick headed here, but I'm still trying to get this custom handleInternalEvent() stuff to work. :oops: When I call ExtensionHelper.instance().canLogin() to log a user in after authenticating credentials, the server doesn't seem to send any of the events that normally would be s...

Ping isn't generally a server issue. It has a lot more to do with the servers between your host and the client (the routing path of the packets), which unfortunately may not be under your control at all.

Ok, so ExtensionHelper.canLogin() is what we use to login a user? In the tutorial it uses .loginUser() so that's what I was looking for (and it doesn't exist).

Thanks!

How do we get the server instance from Java? For example, in the tutorial it refers to the _server variable, but what's the equivalent in Java? Thanks! Edit: I see that SmartFoxServer.getInstance() returns a reference to the server, but I still cannot find any login calls (I also looked in AbstractE...

What I did is create a "gateway" extension that logs the user in, gets server populations from the game servers, then sends that list back to the client. On the client, it disconnects from the gateway and then logs in to one of the servers from the list. Edit: Hrmm, that didn't really answ...

We're going to give EC2 a try, but my game isn't launching for quite some time (8+ months). Maybe Amazon will have improved things a bit for game hosting by then.

Thank you for the info, Barnabas! :)

Why did you conclude that Amazon isn't practical? (If you don't mind sharing.)
