Hi all,

I wondered if it's possible to create a version of the game where several people can play it at the same time (as in one-player games), but can see 'ghosts' of the other people playing?

Also this:
This is a demo you can download. If you have two computers (or one windows version and a browser version) you can see your other player on the same map.
You can see other players roaming around and you can set which switches or variables are synced between all games running on all platforms. You can't directly communicate with other players with built in plugin commands or script calls but you can event your own popup or speech bubble sort of thing so that only players near you can read what you're saying.

Thanks! These are all great for multi-player, which is an option. What I would ideally like though is for each player to paly separately (e.g. each can pick up the same item without it disappearing), but can see each other moving about - but without other players becoming solid obstacles on the map.

Essentially everyone will play single player, but be able to see each other's characters. Is this possible?

Did you check the link I posted? It's not multiplayer at all. The main plugin it uses is named OnlineAvatar.js which pretty much says it does what you're wanting to do.

You can have multiplayer games where items are instanced for each player instead of being shared.

Most multiplayer games are also single player clients.

tv program always get the ratings (it's the reason why drama series has 1000+ episode),also full and nonsense of censorship (weird blur, a scene getting cut because the unconvenient viewer,but it unconvenient to me either. you never see what the original is)

i know the reason is to take cover the viewer from the negative thing,but i just laughing and mocking of them that they're always suck :guffaw:
Star Chart Idea - Just something I am working on.
My sister learned spanish the old fashioned way and saw my way of conjugating. I don't use the formal method and just wing it. I thought her heart might explode. Apparently, different words use different endings. Weird part is even though I never learned the difference, I still can tell when the endings "look wrong".
