Meta Automata prototype :: 0.25
« on: Sunday 2016-March-13 05:00:15 PM »
version number: 0.25

changes:

UDP networking update:

- start two games instances, either on the same computer or two
separate computers

- on one of the game instances press: F9

this will turn on the server

currently all objects other than the trees and boulders will
disappear from that game instance

- on the other game instance press: F7

the game will search for Meta Automata servers

if F9 has been pressed on the other game instance, then it should be
listed like this:

1 :: 192.168.1.blah

your message will be slightly different

- press: 1

to connect to that computer

again all of the game objects will disappear except for trees and
boulders but both computers should be able to see the other
player, represented as blocks

it would be great to hear about peoples' lag, smoothness or lack of
either

you can speed run for a few seconds until you get bored :-)

regarding multi-player, to come:

more than two players
machines, parasites, birds, etc
grown objects, currently ammunition and oil
text chat
PvP

indieDB has labelled the download as metaAutomata.24.zip so I have my version numbers out of sync but metaAutomata.24.zip is what I just uploaded
