Hi , I have some programming experience mostly web development and database and some C++ .

 

I am interested in developing an online multiplayer game . It won't be 3D just a simple 2D thing . Where do I start to learn how to do it ? What frameworks and books are best right now ? I need something not too low level , i don't want to code with assembly language . Something

high level .

It  needs to be 2D and multiplayer and desktop windows application . I was looking at the book "Multiplayer Gaming and Engine Coding for the Torque Game Engine" . Is this

a good place to start ?

The forum FAQ linked to above is full of links and tutorials.  

 

Entries in the faq include tutorials on networking from the beginnings of what sockets are all the way up through building a multiplayer game server in under four hours. Did you actually read the FAQ?
