Looks like there's a new Multiuser player in town for the Flash/Director scene. SmartFoxServer is a new platform for developing Flash-based multiuser games and applications, and it comes recommended by the guys at Chamber of Chat, which is one of the bigger multiuser Director/Flash apps out there. It includes features such as:
  • curse filter
  • native database connectivity
  • 100% Java, so it's cross-platform
  • extensibility for server-side logic via Javascript/Actionscript, Java, and Python
  • cheaper than Flash Media Server (but doesn't do video streaming)
The jury is still out on whether it is better than Nebulae for making Director-based multiuser games, though.
