Foley Art

Hello, Short version: does anyone want free sounds (not music) made for them, for free? Please give me your requests! I am interested in making a few dollars on the side doing Foley art. I understand "Foley art" to be the art of making sounds (not music), typically for use in film to make the viewer...

Annotation/Registration for Flexible Code

So I am creating my game, which piggybacks off of the LOVE2D physics engine. I'm currently programming a system that takes the world and turns it into a string so that it can be given to the client and brought from a string back into programming code again. I wanted to take some ideas I saw in Java ...

Putting Objects Into Strings

So I had recently got my game to sort-of work with multiplayer. My problem now is that I have Lua objects that need to be communicated to/from the server/client. So, I need to come up with a mechanism that takes the objects needed and turns them into strings, and another for taking strings and putti...

Re: LuaSocket Help?

I would like to work on getting HTTP working between the client and the server, since HTTP is a very well defined and supported protocol with many features. Now I know HTTP is designed to connect, fetch data, and disconnect, so I will be making my own game's protocol, but I want my client/server to ...

Re: LuaSocket Help?

Okay, so I took your suggestion to use socket.select(), which worked excellent. What I am going to do is have BOTH TCP and UDP on the same IP/port on both sides, and switch between either as needed. I have found that my packets for sending the world are a bit large and found that TCP is much easier ...

Re: LuaSocket Help?

Hey, so I have not gotten a response on this issue. Did I include enough information? Am I asking the wrong questions? Do I seem lazy in my attempt?

Re: Lua Enet IPv6

Okay, so I spent today cleaning up the server code. I put together a version for demonstration purposes, since I don't want to put my entire game's code out in plaintext. I was able to get a consistent response where when the client joins, it shows, when the client leaves (nicely or not), it gets dr...

Re: Lua Enet IPv6

Okay, now I am having issues when I have multiple clients connected/disconnected/not fully disconnected. Could any of you help me out with this code?
