Ok, just as a starter, first person to say that I need 3 years in college and the regular "you won't be able to do it" sh*t will be sniped through their bedroom window... shall we start

Ok, so I'm looking to make an arena style game where the players can move around, beat the living crap out of each other, etc.

So the way I was thinking about doing it was when someone joins then it will create a new object on the other person screen, whenever they move the x and y will be sent and the object will move, if they attack then an attack(); function will be fired on the other persons screen.

Now I think I'm getting this whole thing and I think I'm not at the same time. I read a tutorial on how to make a chat room and it seams like its just a whole bunch of firing commands at other computers.

So my question is, am I on the right track or is there a better way?

Thanks in advance.

Also, I posted this in the XML forum just because it seamed to fit best here because... there is a lot of XML lol.
