  • Yes, indeed. We have a nice HTML5 library in Javascript. We will package it up in the next 2 weeks.
  • ui nice :)

    I know the 2 weeks have just passed ;) - but are there any news on this topic ?
  • Packaging Photon 3 takes longer than expected ... sorry.

    No probs. Thanks for your quick reply. What do you think what the estimated release date is?
  • I assume its still not out yet or its very well hidden.
  • Yes - sorry :#. We are on it.
  • any progress? :roll:
  • Yep.
    "Before Christmas" is the timing I got.
  • any updates?
    is "Before Christmas" now "After Christmas"? :)
  • No, "Before Christmas" is still before. We just skipped one Christmas.
    :)

    Yesterday we basically solved the remaining quirks we had in the communication. Now we finish up our current works on the server and then we'll release new SDKs.
    I said something similar before but it looks like "in a week" is a good guess.
  • Sounds good!
    Hope you're not lying to us :lol:
  • Hi, any update on this?

    The front page displays a big HTML5 but the download link in the footer https://www.exitgames.com/Download/?SDK=HTML5 does not show any JavaScript API.

    I'd really like to use your platform for a JavaScript game.

    Best,

  • We just released the server for it and want to test the JS SDK once more with this (new) package. Then it will go live tomorrow, most likely.
    I will post this news on our blog.
  • The JavaScript SDK v3.0.0.2 Beta is now available.
    Get it here: http://www.exitgames.com/Download/Photon
    Download: Photon-JavaScript_v-3-0-0-2-Beta_SDK.zip
  • Which browsers work best ?

    I had some luck with Chrome and Firefox and no luck with IE9
  • I'd say Firefox and Chrome :)
    And then I'll ask a colleague to answer the question and make it run in IE9, too.
  • Browsers with native websockets are supported as well as those with a running Flash plugin v10+ on the client end.
    So IE9 is supported only when allowing the proper Flash plugin to access the socket.

    http://caniuse.com/#search=websocket has a good list where native websockets are available.

    Photon Server supports hixie-76 and hybi-08.

    Both, the JS lib and the Flash fallback are by default pretty chatty in their debug logs which can be found on the browsers' JS console. Looking there should help in most cases.

    Best,
    Stefan
