You can only broadcast moving from one pos to another pos after you're done moving lol but thanks! I think I'll just send to server at start of action.

My server is slow and low on memory so I'm trying to limit the number of messages sent to one or two. Then I let the client side handle drawing the movement inbetween the start and the end. But thanks!


Another question I have is: In a network game, does the client send it's state change to the server and the server adds it to a queue and the server loops through that queue and broadcasts it?

In Topic: HTML5 browser game

Thanks guys for the responses!


I keep thinking that making a game that only I will play is a waste but who knows?


But I understand you guys saying I should just make any game.


The reason I chose HTML was because it doesn't need a big IDE (it just needs notepad and an internet browser).


Also, it's easy to upload a javascript game on something like github and let everyone play it through their own browsers without installing things.


What are my choices? :)
