I've been working on this awesome multiplayer shooter for a while now, and suddenly the online-part of this online-game stopped working. Making it a rather useless game.
I dunt know how, but I'm pretty sure it has something to do with a lacewing update that I missed, so I checked it out and found "Lacewing build 14", which I installed.
It however changed nothing. I know that the server I'm using is up and running.
first off, double check to see if its build 14. If its under build 13, nothing will work. (lacewing just switched out of beta). Then check another server. Aquadasoft.com on port 6121 (twice as fast as klikfarm, recommended) or server.klikfarm.com on port 6121. Then try to make a small app that just connects, sets a name, and joins a channel. If that works, then maybe you did something to your code that altered the connection of the game.
Okay, I downloaded the link you posted Solgryn (I'm pretty sure it's the one I've always been trying to use). Then I made a simple connect-test frame. Tried to connect to both Aquadasoft and server.klikfarm, but it didn't work to connect.
I'm not sure, but I think I'm doing something wrong when I'm "installing" Lacewing. What I do is that I extract the MMF2 file, which I drag into the Multimedia Fusion 2 file under My Computer. Then I just press "Yes" and "Replace" 'till it stops.
So, still no luck. Any other ideas? Hopefully something that hasn't to do with hot buttered potatoes
The only code I got for my test-connection frame is
Start of frame - Connect to "server.klikfarm.com" on 6121 (also tried aquadasoft.com)
On connect - Set string "Connected"
On connection denied - Set string "Fail"
What I did:
I downloaded the link Solgryn kindly posted. Instead of moving the entire MMF2 folder, I only moved the 2 files under "Extensions" to the "Extensions" file under the actual Multimedia Fusion 2 folder.
When I run the application, the online part works fine. However, when I extract it to my desktop it won't connect. I tried to inactivate my Norton and all, but still no luck.
Any clue on what's going on?
Edit: I've tried to connect with the über-simple online frame, still doesn't work when I extract. So no coding is wrong.
