  1. Hi, I want to build a multiplayer (2-3 players) mobile game. I'd like to know what is the most common architecture for this kind of games: 1. P2P : Players mobile devices communicate without a server's help. 2. Server-Client: Clients do not communicate directly with each other, but send each move they do to the server. How do most mobile games do it? thanks

    Mobile multiplayer game

    Ok, but don't I need to make sure that player 2 received that message? (I read that multiplayer games usually use UDP and not TCP...)
  3. Hi, I want to develop a mobile multiplayer game. (P2P - clients will communicate directly). There won't be much data sent from one player to the other, but when there will, I'd like the change to appear in the devices at exactly the same time.   If player 1 presses a button, I thought  to change his game state only after player 2 received and confirmed that he received the data, but then player 2's will be updated before player 1's... Is there a way to get the state to change at exactly the same time? Thanks! 
  4. Hi, I want to develop a game for mobile phones. I'd like the user to be able to touch and drag the character around. My question is: Is there a optimal size for the sprite? I'd lik it to be as small as possible but also big enough so it won't be a problem to drag it. thanks :)
  5. Ok, but I'm doing some research now so I'll know what I can and can't do. :)
  6. It's supposed to be a normal strategy game with some extra features... for example the player would be able to build a bridge in order to mobilize its units to areas it couldn't access without it. I'd like the AI to know that unless the user shows signs of building that bridge, it won't build up it defences in that area or if the user shows interest in some region, the AI will be ready for him.
  7. what do you mean by "game design"?
  8. Hi! I'm thinking of developing some kind of a strategy game which will learn how the player plays as the time goes by. It will probably have to consider a lot of variables in order to reach his best move each time and win. But i'm a little confused about which learning method I should choose... which would you recommend? thanks! :)
