Re: [nbos] [AS] Web Integration?

The light shines in! That version was clear as crystal. AS2 as an
interactive web facility would, indeed, open up a whole new raft of
possibilities to on-line gamers and even to those of us who just want to
develop backgrounds and share ideas.

Are you saying you have a way of making this possible? I'm currently
linking up with Rob Graham developing a SciFi environment. It's in the
very early stages but, if we could both work within the same AS2
sector(s) and experience more or less simultaneously what the other was
doing, it would be a real help.

Cheers,

Mike

No offense taken! Sorry if I came across gruff. Anyways, Let me work
on that translation :)


All I was saying is the AS2.0 is a single user application. Its
designed for Windows and Windows only. Its not a multi-user
application, nor does it have any web functionality built in to it. Its
a very well done data generation, management, and visualization
application.

The only way I have figured out how to have a multi-user AS2.0
accessable via a web browser is to code one yourself using Java, Java's
Webstart technology, and one of the many Java based 3D engines. Java
Monkey Engine (jME) is my personal favorite Java 3D engine.

In order to make AS2.0 useful in the game creation process is to use the
data that it generates. Now, someone could easily use the XML export
function and make a way to import the XML data into what ever game they
are making. I chose to use the .sector file directly, which involved
reverse engineering the file format.

I think thats closer to plain english. If not, do ask questions :)

No, Dave - I meant to put a smiley after the query marks but clicked the

non-tecchie, what you were saying was in a foreign language as far as
I'm concerned - it would be nice if you were able to translate into
plain English because I might just learn something useful but I do
understand that some technical stuff can't be put in plain terms. No
offence intended.

Mike,
Pardon what? MMO development is one of my hobbies, part of my career,
and a favorite subject. If that 'Pardon?" of your pertains to any
specific thing, I would love to discuss it! Although, off topic should
be labeled as such or moved to personal emails. dloman77-at-gmail.com.

BTW, love your sites. Good stuff.

-Dave
