What "community"? Do they even have one yet? I'd rather build my own. Usually these types of things are for companies to skim off the top of the advertising revenue of all the games that exist in the 'community'. Not to mention using game developers as a means to get users into their 'comm...

Dealing with ServerIP on Amazon EC2

So I'm installing SFS on my EC2 instance--but the problem is the config.xml requires the Server IP to be specified in the config. How do people deal with this when using EC2 where your instances have arbitrary IPs? Is this going to be dealt with in the upcoming clustering edtion of SFS? It's kind of...

Well I just scanned the page and I don't like how I have to host it using their clustering host solution.

I do wish SFS would finally release details on their clustering license.

How do I get the IP of a server URL in AS3?

So the SmartFox connect function only takes an IP (Why?!). How do I get the IP of a regular URL in AS3? I'm trying to make my app not depend on hardcoded addresses--so I'm trying to retrieve the IP of the URL the SWF is hosted on.

I try to keep PHP to a minimum because I don't want people hacking the game by hitting my PHP pages directly. %99.999 of my database stuff is done inside Java extensions for SFS Pro. It's the only way to go IMHO. I do use PHP pages for creating the accounts since that has to happen before you're log...

Oh one more--can you make a recently played list? I'd like to add a player as a buddy after I've ended the game and am back in the lobby. Maybe you can maintain a list of the last 5 people you played against or something.

Oh also (not to spam the thread :) ) you need to do something about the buttons for spell phase, equip phase, etc. The difference between hilighted and regular isn't very big, you can hardly tell when a phase is going on.

But this game is slick!!!!

Well I just fixed it. I took the code from before my change and then edited a few things and it works.

I removed a call to evt.params.room.getId() inside my userleaveroom callback that I had added once this bug showed up. Now it works. But I have no idea why.

Hey I just came upon this bug!!!!

Was there a solution?

I don't get it--I changed some seemingly unrelated code and all of a sudden I have a crash in handleUserLeaveRoom where the getuser call returns a null object. (Because the user is already gone most likely)

Yeah, bandwidth issues do freak me out. Perhaps I can work out some deal with a portal so that they always have the latest assets/SWF or something. I'm going to do a small lightly publicized launch on my own server until I'm out of beta and then approach portals when I have enough real content in th...

How do distribute a SFS game on portals

I wasn't sure which forum to put this under, so I stuck it here... So I've been thinking a lot about the business model for my upcoming multiplayer game. In order to get the largest amount of impressions, I'd like to get on some portals such as Miniclip etc. But, does anyone know how the process wor...

Yeah it can be worked around, but I'd like to toggle the private flag just so my room search code is nice and neat. I screen out all private rooms. In my case I want the user who creates the room to be able to play solo or with random people--so if he wants to let people in, he toggles the privacy o...

I noticed your big competitor announced a scaleable mode for use with Amazon EC2. Any news on this feature for SmartFox? I'm close to having to figure out how to deploy my app on EC2.
