CrossPlatform/CrossConnection Multiplayer

  • Problem Description

    Multiplayer works fine only if both host and peer have the same type of connection, but if the host is a desktop browser with a "desktop connection" (wifi router, cable) and the peer is a mobile browser with "mobile connection" (3G, 4G) the multiplayer does not work.

    Attach a Capx

    Export and upload to any hosting built-in templates made by Scirra or try this and this (both links has demo-versions and capx-files)

    Description of Capx

    Any of them.

  • Closing as not a bug. The way the Internet is currently architected means not all combinations of connections will work. It's not to do with Construct or its Multiplayer feature. I have previously successfully connected wifi <-> 4G devices, but whether or not it works depends on the specific network configuration along the route between the devices.
