SmartFoxServer Example Projects for Godot 4.x

This series of C# examples built for the Godot 4 engine have been developed with Godot Mono 4.0.3, but the concepts and the code to interact with the SFS2X API are valid for any version of Godot 4.x (unless otherwise noted).

Each of the tutorials in this series examine a single example, describing its objectives, offering an insight into the SmartFoxServer features it wants to highlight. This project includes all the assets required to compile and test the example (both client and — if existing — server side). If necessary, code excerpts are provided in the tutorial itself (see online documentation link below), in order to better explain the approach that was followed to implement a specific feature. At the bottom of the tutorial, additional resources are linked if available.

The tutorials have an increasing complexity, from basic server connection to a complete game with authoritative server code.

Specifically, the examples will showcase:

  • basic connection with optional protocol encryption
  • room management
  • buddy list management
  • game rooms and match-making
  • authoritative server in a turn-based game

The Godot examples provided have been tested for exporting as native executables for Windows and macOS. At the time of writing this article (June 2023) Godot Mono does not yet support exporting for mobile platform or the browser.

SFS_MatchMaking_GD4

This example expands those described in the Lobby: Basics and Lobby: Buddies tutorials by adding a match-making system, to help users find the right Game Room to join based on their skill, and invitations, to let friends meet and play with each other.

In this document we assume that you already went through the previous tutorials, where we explained the subdivision of the application into three scenes, how to create a GlobalManager class to share the connection to SmartFoxServer among scenes and how to implement and manage a buddy list.

Setup & run

In order to setup and run the example, follow these steps:

  1. unzip the examples package;
  2. launch the Godot, click on the Import button and navigate to the Connector folder;
  3. click the Build button in the top right corner of the Godot editor before running the example;

The client's C# code is in the Godot project's res://scripts folder, while the SmartFoxServer 2X client API DLLs are in the res:// folder.

Online Tutorial and Documentation

The base code for this example is the same of the previous one, expanded to implement the new features.

The LobbyManager and GameManager classes have been updated to add the logic related to the Game Room creation and join, and the logic to send invitations.
