I was toying in my spare R&D time with some multi-user stuff ( after coding the 3D chat prototype that I posted a few months ago ), and adding it into our generic 3D environment framework.
I’ve uploaded a quick test ( note the programmer graphics :) – if anyone feels like popping in, you’re more than welcome!
There is no chat functionality at the mo, but you can drag and spell letters on the first table :) It also uses the accessible single-click ethos we’re trying to stick to, so everything is useable with a single mouse button.
EDIT – if you’re going in, try to get someone on a nearby computer to go in also, as there may not be anyone around – and a multi-user demo isn’t much fun on your own :)
Here’s the link…
You’ll know if any other users are in, if you see green cameras floating around the space.
The 4 tables represent…
1 – drag letters to spell
2 – chess ( I should have made this draughts :)
3 – jigsaw
4 – prototype for multi-user animated objects ( still WIP – all animations need to be synched for new users, which is next on list )
Note – anyone on an OS/X IntelMac will have a few more weeks to wait before Shockwave becomes available for that platform.
ps for a near future demo, I’ll make a more game related prototype, such as being able to fly around in 3D in a space ship, and shooting etc.

Here’s an update, where you can fly planes around ( click on the plane on the table ) using the mouse, and press SPACE to fire.
Click to return to the regular moving around mode.
Here’s the link…
Note that the multi-user server is the US, so there might be an issue with latency – need to code in some dead-reckoning etc ( on TO-DO list ).

Yeah like the planes. How does the hammer and button thing work though? Abstract art installation? :wink:

:P They’re just a test for multi-user animated objects ( where when one player clicks an object, it updates for all users – and also if a user joins, they see the current animated setup ( some of the animations have more than one state etc ).
