Anyone here familiar with the GMNet Engine? It markets itself as 'Game Maker Networking made easy!' with 'no networking knowledge required', and i checked through the manual and tested the example itself, and i can see it must be pretty easy to make online games with that engine, as compared to...
Hello, i'm trying to send a string packet from step event in net-manager object by calling a send script. but for some reasons its not sent. in the networking event i used same method and it works perfectly. i'm absolutely stunned right now. here is a picture for explaining further.
i'm trying to read a received tcp packet from custom c# server. i copy the code from an officiel example (NetworkDemo) i'm stuck on this for days now. all that's happening is the server sending a packet containing a message and i'm trying to read it and flash it to the debug console. here is the...
I have a simple client and server set up going on. The client will attempt to connect to the server in the step event. However, I've found that if the client fails to connect to the server on the first try (e.g. I turn the server program off), it will never be able to connect to the server even...
I have an extremely basic network set up, but the client does not seem to want to connect. I have two game maker programs running on two computers connected to the same wifi. I am using teamviewer so that I can work off one computer.
The first one has an client object with this in the create...
For a LAN game im working on, i have the following network setup:
- client & host in 1
- both client and host have:
UDP server, at port X
UDP socket, at port Y
so, X and Y are the same for everyone. Both parties are intended to be able to broadcast & listen to broadcasts, therefore a UDP...
I'm looking for good LAN tutorial, but can't find any. I try to understand the one with GameMaker studio, but contains so mani variables and jumpings between instances, i can't follow or reproduce. I want simply create a server, and broadcast, and the clients see the server, but nothing...

I am attempting to work on a game on my desktop using my laptop by way of opening the game file up over a home grouped link. I can run the game, but it seems to be very slow to start and almost all of my sprites haven't loaded. Is there a reason for this? I notice because the sprites aren't even...

GM:S Only allows creating a server that's either communicates using TCP or UDP and I was curious if it's possible to do both? And if not, would it be practical to create two network servers for a server program that handles both?
(I'm basing the above off of this method...
I'm having a bit of difficulty trying to understand how to get a python client to communicate with a server on a gamemaker program I'm creating.
I did get python to connect to the program but if I try to send any data, the console in GMS 2 says "Error: Login failed".
This is what I'm doing to...
Sorry if this has been asked before, but I couldn't find anything on it in the forum.
Exactly what would constitute an "acceptable" kbps usage for a networked game in GameMaker (up and down)?
I've never done network programming before, and figured I'd jump back into GameMaker and try to give...

I have been unable to open GMS2 over the last week. I have done a fresh install several times, and the issue still continues.
It's stuck in some sort of authentication loop. GMS2 is not blocked on my firewall, and should be connecting fine. I also am not using the wrong login data. This is what...
I'm trying to use async_load[? "socket"] for network_type_data, but it returns undefined every time
however, async_load[? "socket"] works fine for network_type_connect and network_type_disconnect
I simply need a way of keeping track of who the data is coming from
