I am designing a multi-computer simulator using Game Maker 8.1. You are flying a ship through space. The idea is that me and my friends can man all of the different computers and fly the ship. I have already tried to make it twice and have failed both times.
I originally looked into Faucet Networking but it is so overwhelming that I stopped. I used mplay the second time and loved the pure simplicity of it all, until I realized that it is slow and that there were many compatibility issues, as mplay is very old and outdated.
I was wondering if there was something out there that has no compatibility problems like Faucet Networking, but is more simple and straightforward like mplay. I am willing to start over for the third time.
Thank you all ahead of time,
P.S. I am really looking for something to use in GM8.1 (I know, I've looked into GM:Studio's Networking, but I don't have the full version)
