Alright, so I've been working with Java for quite some time and I'm trying to branch of into sockets now. I know the basics of them you could say, I built a working multi client chat on my own with the help of the Java docs on their site, not copy and pasting from some tutorial on the net. So I have potiential I would say. Anyways enough with the rambling. I'm trying to socket player movement now, and I'm a little bit stumped.

I was thinking about sending the x,y value of player to the server when a corresponding key is pressed and then have it send it back to the clients and add an image to those coords. Then I thought how unsufficiant that would be because everyone would have the same image and would not be able to implement a paperdoll system. I'm not too sure, all the help is appreciated. Thanks.

--------Long story short---------

I need some help on implementing a networked movement system.
