    Question multiplayer

    I'm thinking of learning how to program multiplayer in C++, does anyone have any opinions on what I should use? I know that DirectPlay is multiplayer but does this work on a Linux server (I'm assuming not but someone may have ported it)?
    Does anyone know of any good sites to learn multiplayer code for a linux server?

    DirectX is windows-specific, and as far as I know, no one has ported DirectPlay.

    I believe you should go to www.gamedev.net and visit the articles section. Enter the topic "multiplayer".

    If you still can't find something useful, go to their forums ( they have a multiplayer forum, as far as I recall ) and ask whatever you want there.
