Photon is a real-time multiplayer game development framework which has server and cloud services. An advantage of Photon is that it does not require hosting, so the player who created the room can leave the game without causing crashes at the clients.
Also, PUN is more stable and the source code is available to fix any issues you might have. For our projects, we prefer to implement the networking functionality early during development.
This means for each new feature, we make sure it also works over the network. In the end this saves us a lot of time, because implementing it at a later stage results in changing a lot of code.
To follow this tutorial, a basic understanding of Unity and C is required. After doing that, you can enter Play Mode in the Unity Editor to run the second instance of the game.
This is what we are going to do every time we need to test a multiplayer game. The first one we are going to create is the player ship. For now, the ship will only move horizontally in the screen, with its position being updated by the NetworkManager. Later on, we are going to add to it the ability to shoot bullets and receive damage.
So, first of all, create a new GameObject called Ship and make it a prefab. The figure below shows the Ship prefab components, which I will explain now.
In order to a game object to be managed by the NetworkManager, we need to add the NetworkIdentity component to it. In addition, since the ship will be controlled by the player, we are going to set the Local Player Authority check box for it.
The NetworkTransform component, by its turn, is responsible for updating the Ship position throughout the server and all the clients.
NetworkIdentity and NetworkTransform are the two components necessary for multiplayer features. Finally, we are going to add a MoveShip script, which will have a Speed parameter.
The MoveShip script is very simple, in the FixedUpdate method we get the movement from the Horizontal Axis and set the ship velocity accordingly. If you have time, you can provide more information to help us fix the problem faster.
