If you want to learn how to use Lacewing, go to my article here:

Make sure you have the latest MMF2 build and the latest Lacewing build! Get them both at the clickteam forums

This is a tutorial pack I made that contains 3 online tutorials using lacewing. They are:

- Basic movement with 360 degree shooting online
- chat room with kicking feature
- online lobby

The basic movement and shooting is a good example of how to make your own online deathmatch game. The chat room has a nice kicking feature that was originally made for a member of the clickteam forums. I might be adding onto this chat room a bit more later on. Finally there's the online lobby. It was originally discovered by Solgryn, but I added a few features that updates the lobby whenever someone connects, so it will always be refreshed. Before, only people that were connected on the lobby frame, would see the newly created game, but what if the game was already created and a person joins the lobby? My tutorial fixes this, so it's flawless now. Thanks to Solgryn for the original tutorial (article).

I will be making more online tutorials in the future, but I need more online tutorial ideas from the members of the daily click!

I hope you enjoyed these tutorials!

Link seems to be broken. Argh, was looking forward to see this! I've wondered how to make smooth shooting online, hope you've figured it out.

Perhaps you can make a tutorial about hosting games and such, think it would be helpful for some

"hosting games" is the online lobby tutorial in the pack. I'll try to fix the link now.

Ow I didn't realise that I'm in school atm, will dl when I get home!

Hmm, as soon as I do something when another person is online (well, I was running the game twice) the game crashes.
Like if I move or shoot in the shooting example, it crashes if someone else also is online. The game also crashes if I try to join a game in the lobby example.

Works fine for me. Do you have firewall blocking the apps? And make sure your not using the same username for all the apps. Each username has to be different!

Lacewing is the updated version of the two. It's more stable and built better than the others.
