New to networking....

Recommended Posts

I would like to make an online multiplayer for my FPS. Somthing similar to halo 2. I would like a peer to peer or hosting system with a small mathcmaking system. My first question is what type of programming should I use. My second is what books or tuts would you suggest? Thanks, -Tom

The bug-free kind, ideally.

I suggest the Forum FAQ for this forum, as it answers some of your questions, and provides references for some further online reading.

Anyone starting with networked application programming should read Beej's guide to network programming. http://beej.us/guide/bgnet/output/htmlsingle/bgnet.html

Also, mentioned many times on the forum is RAKNet for a networked games API. Its very well maintained and simple enough to use. You wont have to reinvent the wheel in your application. http://www.rakkarsoft.com/
