I am currently making an online game with MooClick. It is a shooter; so the sending needs to be pretty fast. My problem is the Channel: Send Text action sends too slowly. I tried using Channel: Blast Text which uses UDP to sent faster. My problem was that it wasn't working with Blast Text and it worked fine (albeit slowly) with Send Text. Does Blast Text receive differently? I really need it to work; considering you don't want to shoot at where someone was a second ago.

How were you testing it? Two apps on the same computer or with a friend?

Both ways. I figured out why It wouldn't work with two apps on my computer (UDP Socket Binding) So I tried it with a friend and it still didn't work.

If you have a router in the way, UDP will be a problem unless you forward port 1204 to your computer.

I thought it had something to do with that. How would I accomplish that?

You could just host a MOS on your own computer and connect to it using "localhost" as the IP. The router will be out of the equation then.

You need to enable port forwarding. Look on your router's website or in the instruction manual. For me (Netgear RP614) I have to go here: 192.168.0.1 through internet explorer, I can then find options to edit port forwarding.

Hm... I tried that on my LinkSys router (got to the options and everything) and it had the port forwarding option, and went to service ports. It asked for two numbers (assumed to be a range), so I put 1204 and 1204. I then put my network IP, and okayed all the stuff, and it still didn't work. Any help would be appreciated.

I thought that with MooClick UDP blasting was on port 1205 (the one above the TCP/IP port).

Maybe it's your code? But if it doesn't work test it over the internet, not network.
