  • Hi gumshoe2029 ,

    I am trying to make a one on one multiplayer challenge real-time game with multiplayer,

    ....it can be explained like two players playing flappy birds on same screen but with their separate players and scores (kinda split screens)....

    but multiplayer object of construct 2 is laggy,so was wondering to use google multiplayer api in construct 2 , any ideas if that's even possible or not?

    HI Xh3maa

    Yes it is free

  • Anything is possible with enough work and knowledge.

    The Construct2 multiplayer plugin uses a peer-to-peer architecture; so if your players are on opposite sides of the world or the connection between them is bad, it will lag.

    What you are proposing is moving to a centralized server architecture with the Google multiplayer API as your server. The problem with this approach is that specific games require specific server-side programs to process information, and Google has no concept of what your specific implementation will be ahead of time. I suspect you will find more work this way.

  • Hi gumshoe2029 thank you for replying....

    First of all i played the game with myself, ie. not on opposite sides of world, both devices were in same room with a good internet connection still it was laggy for the peer, i dont know how to compensate lag ,i tried the tutorial but can't understand the compensation thing , so if anyone can help me understand that please do help!

    Second of all ,all i asked is if we can use google play multiplayer api in construct 2 or not, as it is very lag free and easy!

    Thank you

    Then you are doing something wrong. I am not experienced with the Multiplayer plugin, because my current project uses a centralized cloud server.

    It looks like you can use Google API, you just use AJAX requests to their REST API service.

    You would have to do more research on this area though, because it is not my area of expertise, since I program all of my own server-side applications.
