Animation information transfers RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-696641838 posted

    I have noticed that there are various games that enable users to have animated characters that interact with other users over the internet.  I would like to create software for each user to download into their computer that would enable this happen.  I have lots of experience creating websites with static pages, but this is completely different.  The only thing that a website for an animation program would need to do is transfer what each user is doing so that the software can display it.  Does Visual Studio provide the means to create a website that would enable that to happen?  If so, where should I look for information regarding this subject?

    You want a real time functionality. You can achieve it with SignalR

    ASP.NET SignalR is a new library for ASP.NET developers that makes developing real-time web functionality easy. SignalR allows bi-directional communication between server and client. Servers can now push content to connected clients instantly as it becomes available. SignalR supports Web Sockets, and falls back to other compatible techniques for older browsers. SignalR includes APIs for connection management (for instance, connect and disconnect events), grouping connections, and authorization.

    Another option is Socket IO
