Simple data sharing

Networking made simple

All you need to do is share the information you want other players to see. They do the same.

🚀
global.sharedProperties = { _x : oPlayer.x, _y : oPlayer.y }

Dynamically-managed Clients

Other players are automatically created and destroyed as they enter and exit the RNet room, making things simple to manage and understand.

🚀
//oOtherPlayer Step Event x = SP._x y = SP._y

Entity System

Entities: everything you could possibly need

Entities are game objects that you create on one client. They are then created for every other client in the room. This can be used for more complex objects like bullets and NPCs that cannot be shared through a single object.

Database

🚀
//Create Data

var playerInfo = { ip: "155.34.22.11", location : "Ontario" } var name = "lilshake";

SetSimpleData("users", name, playerInfo)

💕
//Read Data

ReadSimpleData("users", "lilshake")

💕
//Delete Data

Permanent Database

Every account gets at least 1GB of Cloud Storage. Our database system is built on Firebase Firestore, and is extremely easy to use. You can store player information, world data etc

The functions are designed to be as easy to use as possible.

🎒 Tutorials and Courses

These tutorials are meant to teach you the core concepts of rocket networking and cover a wide range of networking topics. The non networking parts are intentionally not developed further and kept in a prototype stage so we can focus on how this engine works.

How much do I have to do?

  1. To start off, you’ll need to create an account with us. Go to the dashboard.
  2. You can then create a new unique server ID (secret key) like “SV9Hk11vdiO9vmYoZEOr7VtUFcn2” Note it down safely. It’s easiest to copy from our web app.
  3. Download our gamemaker template from the marketplace or Google Drive and replace the dummy server id with your own in Scripts/Rocket Networking/Options.gml
  4. That’s it! You have finished the set up. With our easy room based system combined with entity logic, you can share data between clients with low code.
