Hey there sstark, thanks for the answer. After some tests I found out that doesn't seem to be a matter of how many or how "big" (where your idea would definitely come in handy) the packages are. I'm having a lot of client drops and my guess is, after noticing a pattern while after playing,...

Client disconnection due to (possible) large packages

I'm not sure if that is the actual problem, but I'm having a lot of client disconnections lately including myself from my game. After some tests I'm starting to think it has a relation to large amounts of information sent at once using smartfox.sendObject Is there any parameter on the config file th...

Manually add IP to ban lists

There should be an option on the ban manager to manually add IPs. I actually have a system of my own to ban IP's, but I really wish I could use the more robust ban system from SFS. Problem is its almost impossible to handle them since you have to catch the abuser before he logs out :/

Just got some confirmation here. Dynamic rooms are only destroyed when everyone leaves regardless or being the owner or not.
I actually was almost 100% positive otherwise I would definitely have some bugs on my game by now.

Re: Getting there slowly..

I stuck a timer on the joinRoom() after the createRoom() was run. This has kind of solved the problem for meantime but will have to find a better method, and I now have other problems. I'm still not receiving an upto date version of the zones rooms list. Which is resulting in errors being sent by t...

There is a command on SFS that allows you to send very small packages to the server: smartfox.roundTripBench(); and smartfox.onRoundTripResponse = function(elapsed:Number) Supposedly it should prevent users from getting disconnected, but I think Lapo removed that option on the latest versions. The o...

Guys I think you should know this: Amayeta is MUCH more expensive then many obfuscation techniques around. The only difference between them and the one I'm using is price. Simple fact is that Amayeta knows how to market their product better then the others =P Now check this one out: http://www.swfpr...

I don't think this might work, but try setting type to each variables you received from the database, like this: var uUN = String(tempRow.getItem("UN")) var uEM = Number(tempRow.getItem("EM")) Worth a shot, before we go completely mad :lol: Yup that is actually exactly what you ...

I was really exited with all the new features of 1.6.3, but one of the things that stops me from updating my API is the apparent new approach to user.getVariables() that I'm unable to figure out. For some reason when I try invoking getVariables() outside any sfs event it gives me an empty object. I'...

Wow this is very weird Lapo :D I finally made it work. Apparently my issues with that was just a sinax issue, but then I found out there was (is) something else going on. I just figured out today. Whenever I trace a variable declared inside the extension, the value of it changes unexpectedly to some...

someone correct me if I'm wrong, but using user.getVariables() for the userid is not hacker safe because they can change the variables client-side. Yep you are right which is one of the risks I'm taking by using a connection bridge for client login rather then an extension login. The reason for tha...

can an extention read variables set from client?

I've searched quite a lot on the forums and I think I started to realize there is maybe a difference between using _server.setUserVariables() and a regular call from the client to set variables (smartfox.setUserVariables(uVars)) Am I wrong or its not possible to do it so? When I do an extension call...

Extensions vs Connection bridge. Which one is better?

After using extensions to its fullest (using actionscript), I've realized it sorta slows the entire SFS down even if the server is at full speed. I don't know exactly if its my fault for making so many database connections (probably 4 or 5) in one extension call or just how it should behaive. I then...
