FM WebSocket Manager

It’s a Server-Clients networking system for Internet Streaming, which requires node.js server hosting.
It supports string and byte[] streaming.

Basic Setup

All the communication between Server, Clients is via FM WebSocket Manager.
It requires node.js server for the Internet Streaming, which will route your data in public network.
It also requires one Unity3D connection as Server in your whole connection, as it’s Server-Clients based networking system

Thus, there are two parts in this tutorial setup.
Part A: node.js server
Part B: Unity3D FMWebSocketManager

Part A: Node.js server

Our example server is located in our plugin root folder

1. Install npm + node.js
Download and install necessary items

2. Not required, if you only use FM WebSocket Manager
install socket io, you may choose one of the below versions
cmd/terminal: npm install
cmd/terminal: npm install
cmd/terminal: npm install

3. Install express
cmd/terminal: npm init
cmd/terminal: Enter…
cmd/terminal: npm install express –save

4. Finish & Test on localhost

You may follow this step-by-step tutorial, the commands are compatible in Mac/Windows/Linux

Part B: Unity3D FM WebSocket Manager Setup

1. Create a new GameObject in your scene, and name it “FM WebSocket Manager”.
2. Add Component FMWebSocketManager.cs

3. Choose Network Type: Server, Client

4. enabled Auto Init is recommended, which will automatically start the connection in runtime.
5. you may also connect them manually as alternative via script.

//All node.js server examples are included in our testing zip file
//Server or Client Mode is for Server-Clients networking connection with websocket
//WebSocket Mode is only for standard websocket connection

//For NetworkType: Server/Client
FMWebSocketManager.instance.SendToAll(byte[] _byteData);
FMWebSocketManager.instance.SendToServer(byte[] _byteData);
FMWebSocketManager.instance.SendToOthers(byte[] _byteData);
FMWebSocketManager.instance.SendToTarget(byte[] _byteData, string _wsid);
FMWebSocketManager.instance.SendToAll(string _stringData);
FMWebSocketManager.instance.SendToServer(string _stringData);
FMWebSocketManager.instance.SendToOthers(string _stringData);
FMWebSocketManager.instance.SendToTarget(string _stringData, string _wsid);

//For NetworkType: WebSocket only
FMWebSocketManager.instance.WebSocketSend(byte[] _byteData);
FMWebSocketManager.instance.WebSocketSend(string _stringData);
