Hi,

I'm writing an RPG and am in the stages of wanting it to go on-line. I want to incorporate it early before the program gets too large and complicated to put it in at a later date. Does anyone have any examples of a chat type program using DirectPlay?

Cheers

There are many of tutorials for directplay on the net.
Here is just one of them.

Click on tutorials on the left then just look for the direct play section down the page.

Writing multi player games over the internet is actually a lot harder then you would think, and it is best to write them from the very very beginning rather then mid way into it as you will find out. :)

Thanks for your hyperlink.

I have actually just started the game so thats why I want to put it in now. I haven't actually used DirectPlay before and I'm keen to learn a lot about it. The multiplayer game is in the same style as Diablo. Once I have something apart from a bog standard screen scroll then I'll post it.
