sendRoomList

Postby corwin » 27 Jul 2010, 09:03

Is it possible on login not to send all the rooms to the user? I need to send him just the lobby to join it, he doesn't need to know all the rooms. As I have 9k+ rooms, I get very high traffic only in sending room lists on login...

SFS2X has the features you want, but for the current SFS - you can use the '_server.sendGenericMessage(..)' function to send a custom room list to the client. The doc will have more info about this.

I would recommend to follow BigFish advice.
You will need to filter the Rooms on the server side and provide the client your own custom Room List.

By forging the Room List exactly the same way the Server would send it you can "fake" a limited Room List and save a lot of bandwidth.

The easiest way to learn how to send the fake Room List is by looking at the protocol in the Flash IDE turning on the debug flag of the SmartFoxClient class.
