CORRECTION

I was wrong: the feature is already present in the current SmartFoxServer API! We just forgot to mention it in the createRoom() method documentation. Now it's been updated! By default when you create a game room you're automatically joined in the new room leaving the one you were in before. If you d...

At the moment when a game room is created, its creator is auto-joined so that he can wait for the other (or others) player(s) This is done because usually the guy who starts a game room is the one who also wants to play. If we don't autojoin him in the game room he will not be 100% sure to play. Let...

probably you don't have Java installed :)

In order to run SmartFoxServer Basic you need Java 1.4.2 or later

Upgrading is very simple, >> http://www.java.com

I don't know exactly how many users you think you're going to handle but even with many thousands you could introduce some filters to allow people narrow their search. At least this is what ICQ and similar programs do. The problem I see with the master player list pulled from the database is that it...

About the datagrid: the mx2004 version is not bad at all, unless you need to visualize hundreds of rows.
In that case I'd suggest to create a paging system to avoid having too many records in the component.

If you're going to have many user profiles to browse in this big main lobby why don't you keep all the user info in a database, and access that through flash-remoting, webservices and similar? In other words... if you're going to have all these user profiles I suppose you're going to store them in a...

I've done a few extra researches and found this: http://livedocs.macromedia.com/flash/mx2004/main_7_2/wwhelp/wwhimpl/common/html/wwhelp.htm?context=Flash_MX_2004&file=00001098.html It seems you're not the only one getting this problem. As stated in the end of that page try this instead: System.s...

I am sorry but I can't say. If I copy the same exact line you reported here in a new Flash MX 2004 document and launch it (CTRL + ENTER) I don't get any errors, just like it is supposed to be. Did you try that? That single command in a new flash doc? Maybe you have a problem with your Flash installa...

Well, if you're completely new to flash and multiplayer stuff you should take it easy and start from the basics. A good book or two would also help speeding up the learning process.

In general it's not a problem for the server but it might be for the bandwidth to a certain extent. Mainly the problem could be with the very long user list that a client would receive when the room has 3-400 or more users inside. Also a single public message would need to be broadcasted to all thos...

Hi juunk, I am glad to know that SFS is working fine on Mac OS X! About your project, my answer is yes, you could definately create a similar thingy with SFS Lite or Basic. It's pretty easy. The concept is very similar to our "Avatar Chat" example provided with SFS, only you can move all items on sc...
