My friends and I are starting up a little gamming project. I’ve been assigned to the networking aspect of it. The networking part isn’t that bad or at least it doesn’t seem that way to me now. We’ve decided that the maximum amount of players will be three. With this said I want to start the networking part over the internet first.
I’ll already setup a server with MySQL, PHP, Apache the works. Problem is I’m not sure how to go about connecting all three of them (three computers). I’m thinking of using a database to connect them. You know have all three connected to a database (MySQL) then that database sends them new information if any. I’m sure there is a better way, but hey if you guys know of any easier way please share.
This project will be written in Java. So right now I need to figure out how to network three computers just so they can see each other (this would obviously be the first step). What do you guys think?
