    Default How do I implement a networking framework?

    Hello. This is my first thread, but I'll try my best to explain.

    I am making a rpg game, and I am wondering how to implement a network framework like netty. Do I just move the .jar into there and add some position updater and make it show the other players? Btw is there any other networking frameworks that is more easy to use, and easy to implement?
    Thanks.

    Are you looking for a package that handles all of the networking I/O that you can plug your code into?

    Yes. I think...
    I have seen in some other ORPG engines that they have just put the netty.jar into a folder and not much code was added to make it work.

    We spend more time here helping students learn how to write programs.

    Third party packages are not discussed or used much.

    Oh well okay.
    Do you know if it is easy to make your own network framework? I only need position updating and facing.

    That would be a good project for someone.
    If you could define what the client and server bits need to do.

    What is "position updating and facing"? That sounds like a specific application not a general purpose framework for controlling/coordinating a bunch of clients.

    It just sends the others persons coordinates and what position it's facing (Up, down, left or right).

    That must mean it has a GUI and some kind of image it displays.
