    Lightbulb Internet programming?

    HI, I got this nifty little idea that I want to make a chat program or maybe even a little game that is playable over the net. Get what I'm saying? I dont know what to call this but does anyone have any ideas where I could start. Thanks!

    Unhappy Maybe I need to be a little clearer.

    Hey, maybe I wasnt specific enough. I would really like to make a little pong game that has two players. Thing is, I want the other player to be someone over the internet. Does anyone have any idea where I could start to learn how to accomplish this. I am not asking for code because first, I like to write my own and second because I know it would probably take a lot!!! Anyways, thanks for all of you that have tried to help. Keep coding and live hard.

    Well, you could write the program and comunicate with the same program on another PC by using WinSockets. Do a search on this board and you will find links to a few tutorials.......

    If you wanted this to work with more than 2 people at a time, you would need a server.....that would be getting very complex at that point.....

    Smile Thats cool

    Thanks for replying. I was talking to a friend of mine who is a big networking guru and he said something like I would need a server. Thats cool. That winsocket stuff sounds really interesting. I will definately have to check that out. Thanks a lot.
