idea for multiplayer game
Not a game idea but a way to host and join games
the host sends his ip to an online database
the client can look through the database for games to join
user takes the ip address and types it in the client
client and server connect to each other
I tried the typing the IP address in thing with a friend and it works properly
The problem is, i dont know how to manipulate databases with scripting languages
can someone link me or explain how this would be done?
come to think of it, do all multiplayer games work more or less the same way?
[edit2] i just realized that i don't know how to get the ip address without manually going to whatismyip.com
