i like make games with MonoGame but i would like make a multiplayer online with database and that seems very complicate for my level.
So i would like know if its possible to continue to make my game on MonoGame and use Unity for the network/multiplayer system ?
but you can search for multiplayer libraries, because they have nothing to do with graphical representation (monogame)
(that’s actually what unity does - I don’t know what they use for multiplayer, but there are several libraries, but multiplayer is no easy task a library can take way from you without having any deeper knowledge about it)
A good one to look at would be MikeNet, but that’s up to you to look for… I don’t like linking the official URL as it sounds… rude lol
Hum ok thanks you.
MikeNet its very old but i will look on that. Maybe Lingred also or SignalR, i’ll try both.
Do you know games multiplayer/online with scores or data save online make on MonoGame ?
Take a look at the home page, wait for the sliding thing or look here:
Ok thx i’ll check that.
MonoGame projects are basically XNA projects. XNA is Windows/Windows Phone/Xbox 360, while MonoGame rewrites XNA Frameworks into Windows/Linux/Mac/Phones/Consoles other than Microsoft branded ones.
There is a way to put XNA projects INTO Unity3D, however, it’s not fully developed. Here is the link: https://github.com/mvi/UnityXNA
As for networking, XNA has a built in networking, however, it’s for the old Xbox 360 / Games for Windows. I have no idea the progress MonoGame has done to support that type of networking on newer platforms.
Lidgren.Network seems to be the one most use on XNA/MonoGame and I suggest looking into that.
Thanks you for this complete answer.
Hi, say me about result because I could not use Lidgren client and server on different computers only localhost. However I many monthes ago began to develop my own multiplayer.
Hey there, if anyone is interested in helping to make the unity3d colyseus client to be compatible with monogame I’d totally support it! https://github.com/colyseus/colyseus-unity3d
