How do you add social/mmo features?

  • So, I'm assuming it's possible to extend the features of Construct2 using the plugins system.

    My question is, if you wanted to add social/mmo features to your game, how would you add that functionality? What APIs, SDKs, etc. would you use to expand your game, and how would you implement them?

    For example, you have Roar Engine, and then you have something like Papaya, or Corona.

    Really, it's hard to know which direction to go with so many options available. :/

    Thanks for your help.

  • Im not sure what your quite asking for...?

    Are you asking for someone to make a plugin for you?

    or

    Asking where to start for a plugin?

    And some realtime social adaptions are possible through current third party plugins, And there is a plugin currently in development for multiplayer..

  • Well, I'd certainly love it if you could link to those plugins, because I did some searching and couldn't find anything. Maybe I didn't look hard enough. Anything with leaderboards, social features, multiplayer, etc.

    What I'm asking is, what process would you follow to create a social MMO. In regards to the tools I mentioned in my OP, I would like to know how to create a plugin so I can make them work with Construct2, as they could be very useful in creating that type of game.

    Thanks, you're awesome. ;-)

  • Ok lets start :).

    Firstly, There is a Playtomic plugin, which will be very usefull for storing game stats, but it also has online leaderboards!!!! :D,

    The actual multiplayer plugin is not out yet, but its being worked on by a amazing user!!

         - you can follow the tread here: scirra.com/forum/multiplayer-demo-in-c2_topic47724.html

    If you wish to make your own plugin then here is the documentation/ template for it: http://www.scirra.com/manual/15/sdk

    note here is a link with a list of construct2 plugins.

  • copy and paste the link for the manual sdk thing, I cant figure out how to get links working <img src="smileys/smiley5.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

  • In the how do I FAQ there's a little section "Multiplayer/Networking". You might want to check it out too along all links smitchell nicely provided you.

    smitchell: check my signature and go to "posting tips". Hope it will help you get your links running good <img src="smileys/smiley2.gif" border="0" align="middle">

  • Thanks for your responses guys. I was wondering, what would be the best social game API to create a plugin for C2? It seems there are so many.

    Thanks again.

  • Try Construct 3

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

    Try Now Construct 3 users don't see these ads
  • There is one i used to use before called scoreoid it's really good for making leader boards achievements and notifications ect the leaderboards load allot faster than the ones from plunge playtomic plugin. Scoreoid also allows you to create players and save days for them so they can have profiles inr your game <img src="smileys/smiley1.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

  • I just had a look at that roar engine. Looks pretty cool!!! Might be worth making an plugin for that
