Has anyone ever used Lightserver?

  • Has anyone ever used Lightserver?

    They have a fairly powerful looking free version that I might look into using for future real time games. My current game is sufficiently slow-paced to not need WebSockets, but in the future I want to build more powerful and higher performance multiplayer games.

    This StackOverflow post claims their server can support over 1 million concurrent TCP connections to a single AWS server.

  • I would check out whatever your host offers, since it's a good bet it works there.

    I don't consider Websockets fast enough for action type games regularly, but if you don't want the peer to peer from the Construct multiplayer, then it should get pretty close.

  • newt

    Websockets is fast enough for Fast action games take a scroll thru the games at http://iogames.space/ all of them utilize websockets

  • The free version has 1 update per second per item.... way too slow for an action game.

    You will require the presto or vivace license.

  • Try Construct 3

    Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.

    If you keep your message size light, I would imagine it is. For my chat server, I am getting 10-30ms latency.

    Ah, sad days, I did not see that update limit.
