HI,
I am not familiar with the game you have mentioned. I am not sure if I understand correctly though. Are the four players (which essentially are only 2) playing the same game? If it were a chess game would they be all playing on the same chessboard?

Thanks
Lapo

Hi,
I hope it`s not a thread highjacking, as my question feels the same.

It is said that Game type rooms are good for turn based games as it automatically gives each player a unique ID. I`m going to implement a turn based tactiacal game. What if each player has a squad (let`s say 2 characters to match the topic), each person in squad has his own initiative and hence there`s a queue of turns for each character (not player)?

Should I initiate separate connections for each character and wrap it somehow on the client? Or should I ignore the SFS id`s and figure out something else?

Hi, no problem, your question is relevant to the topic.

In the case of two (or more) characters per player I would probably use a custom logic for the game that is based on the number of characters rather than the players. This probably means assigning a new CharacterID for each character and using that to advance the turns. In general I would not recommend to use multiple connections because they will be harder to manage and take more resources.

Hope it helps
Lapo
