    you'll have to learn how to use Winsock's, when you do, the rest would be easy, because you have to make up your own network language, and then you'll have to make the game which supports your netlang.
    but I don't think you could put that into a web page.

    or, if you wanna use DirectX, you can use DirectPlay.

    tell me in which of these topics you want me to focus on.

    You could use HawkNL, do a google search to find its page.

    Hey everyone. Assistand to Zedd here- Dragonlord.

    Anyhow: My question. If we were forced into using a standard suck as M$ Winsock, would it be possible to reproduce the effects in Linux? I am wondering, as I am the one porting the M$ libraries to Linux.

    -Thank you

    well, I don't use linux, but I don't think it has winsock as-it-is in Windows, but if you know about linux's comm capabilities and programming, you can do an emulator..
