    No I'm still confused. Couldn't a hacker sending fake packets trick the server just like they could trick another client? And couldn't a client's instance of the game detect data that is obviously erroneous like server logic could do?

    The question is, do you trust a client when it says "I kill you", or do you instead trust the server to say "they killed you"?

    A malicious client could trick a dedicated server, but only if you give them the freedom to.

    In a two player game there's not much issue, the two can detect the problems with the other and kick each other safely. The real problem is with larger games. Would you trust a client who said "I think he's cheating, kick him"? It could be abused quite quite easily.

    A hacker *could* send fake packets... but trick the server? Well that's only if you allow the server to be tricked. In the end, if all of your important calculations are done serverside, then it won't matter what the player attempts to do.

    Think about it like this... the client is just there to display graphics and play sounds, and take the user's input. That input is sent to the server, where it's checked and verified to be acceptable, then the server does some stuff, and then tells the client what to display. So really, the client shouldn't be doing much of anything in terms of calculations or storing important variables.

    Oh and by the way, DizzyDoo, fantastic tutorials! I've learned quite a bit from watching them. Thanks for making them and I can only hope you make more once Lacewing is further along. (and I can only hope Lacewing gets further along soon!)

    Lacewing Build #18

    If you want to make your own server, there are a few ways to do that... You can make it with C++, or you could also use the server object that comes with Lacewing. A good example of a server made with MMF:

    Though that is using build #17 I think. So if you want to use build #17 you can get it here:

    I am going through these great video tutorials and need the LacewingServer app mentioned in the video.
    Where can I find it and that will work with the latest Lacewing?

    If you 'found it' then you have an old version, as it is no longer provided
    Working as fast as I can on Fusion 3
