      Hi,

      I’m a newbie embarking on a project to create a multiplayer online game. Interaction between players is to be fairly simple. e.g. Action taken by player 1 will affect environment of other players, and determine subsequent options available to them.

      I guess the kind of interactivity I’m looking for is analogous to online Poker games – pokerroom.com

      Any opionions on what technologies I should use? Anyone know of any good resources (books, online) for Flash/Director online networked gaming?

      Hope I’m not too confused :)

      java and applets is an easy way to build games.
      javas got a whole networking api which is very easy to get running.
      lots of books and stuff also. http://www.java.sun.com is your best starting place

      flash is pretty cool too, but art work will be your main task i reckon.

      Hey,

      There was I book I got off idora when I was working with flash and used it when building a multiplayer battleships game, something about flash games, maybe tony remembers, anyways it was quite handy.

      Actually just googled it, it is ‘Macromedia Flash MX Game Design Demystified’ by Jobe Makar

      Ive been using flash for websites, games, and apps for about 4 years. Theres 3 websites i always go back to when i have a problem

      http://www.flashkit.com
      http://www.actionscript.org
      http://www.kirupa.com

      They all have tutorials on nearly everything and your best bet is to search the forums when you have a specific problem. You’re nearly always guaranteed that some1 else had the same problem before you. :wink:
