Re: multiple clients from localhost

From my experience, it's nearly impossible to get two machines to connect using UDP over the internet without some sort of an intermediate server. I use sock.lua which uses enet which uses UDP and my proggy works on LAN but not internet so my experience aligns with your own. If UDP is too hard for ...

Re: ECS/Concord - resolved

> There are advantages and disadvantages of course. I haven't yet advanced my thinking to what the difference are. The obvious one is a large DRAW system vs lots of smaller ones but the number of lines would be almost the same. I guess many DRAW systems allows you to split across modules/files if th...

Re: ECS/Concord - resolved

Yes - I discovered :has. Thanks.

I"m loving Concord after using it for less than a week. I want to do more with it when I find a project suited for it.

ECS/Concord - resolved

Edit: resolved - my code is one valid way. Leaving here for others. Hi all - any ECS/Concord users here? I'm new to ECS and trying to rewire my brain. Just checking if this example is the right way to DRAW entities: -- define components Concord.component("isSquare") Concord.component("...

Cool. I'm very interested in seeing how you did this so I can make more things android compatible.

sock can't connect

So I use sock.lua after trying enet and socket and probably other libraries I've forgotten and sock.lua is both very well documented and easy to use and it works out of the box - if you're on a LAN. I can't get an external internet client to connect to the host. I think I've done port forwarding cor...

Re: Have you coded a block chain for fun?

No. Not a joke. My block chain is a table and the table is saved to a text file for future transporting. I use bitser to serialise the table into a string and that string is written to the text file. Point is my block chain is not 'in the clear' and if it were altered with an editor or in transit th...

Re: Have you coded a block chain for fun?

I've built a block chain with a basic GUI. It accidentally has encryption through the use of bitser - noting it's all open source lol.

I'll polish it up and add some robustness and conflict resolution.

Re: Have you coded a block chain for fun?

The problem is to make a block chain so I can say I've made a block chain. :) I want to climb that hill because it's there. But you're right, I need some context or application or end point. I could gamify this somehow (would be a dull game but it's an exercise) and we're right back where Slime sugg...
