Update: I am so pissed I was right the whole time…. 3G will not allow what I want.. peer to peer connections.. ARGH!!!…the arena is working… I just need to clean it up now and the menus.. O so mad I wasted so much time without trying a remote client besides 3G…
umm wow… looks like 3G is not a udp forward-able thing over 3g.. took 2 days and a rewrite to find that out.. but connections a synch over wifi on both ends! … sheesh…. wish that info was out there would have saved me 2 days…. ! I connected to a computer on another wifi network and then tested all my code was GOOD!! ARGH!!!!!!!!!! So Arena will be wifi only.. which makes sense anyway as 3G adds 200ms latency at the get go…
I posted this on TA:
“A note to developers.. I hope to save you guys 3 damn days!… I was attempting all sorts of Firewall punching one 3G one Wifi… and nothing worked.. NOTHING… I tried tcp server tcp client.. tcp server udp client.. and where I am now.. UDP all .. (I like it a lot) … then I connected to another external mac of mine.. and tried what I knew should work… and it did… argh…..WiFi only Arena is great with me … 3G is silly anyway it adds 200ms latency as a BASE… so insane anyway.. ARGH.. I hope this saves someone else some time…OK onward and upward after a 3 day learning experience…. stupid 3G…”
OK server rewritten working great.. now to finish the connection code on the client.. everything should work.. but I have something wrong somewhere … soon ;)..
Set of the day!
But about to get er done after some good home town churching… I got all the way down to client connection with the server so I have high hopes today I will be on to the stability… then a few minor issues people have… testing and shipping to apple..I am _HOPING_ to ship wens – friday of this week and immediately begin on Update 2 since have a bug list -) that one will include more toys.. 😉
5 hours sleep makes you a little groggy at my age…;)
