Forge Networking Remastered
User Manual (Forge Networking Remastered)
Forge Networking Remastered (FNR) is a re-imagining of networking for Forge.
We took everything we learned, all the feedback we could get, and we started from scratch on FNR.
- While Forge is to be used as part of Unity like before, it is not dependant on Unity, which means you can even use it outside of Unity (in practical scenarios, to sometimes have C# servers that don't depend on Unity, but do act as servers to Unity Clients)
- We kept some of the helper classes such as ObjectMapper and BMSByte, as those were optimized classes just for generic network data transfer.
- We wanted to completely remove any kind of reflection "magic" that was in the system. In place of reflection, we opted for generated class files and code, this makes debugging and tracking execution much easier to maintain and test.
