I am readying a live multiplayer addon for the TopTyper application. Currently it is mostly finished, but a few things still need to be done.The addon will not have any influence on the current game, it will rather add and extend its functionalities.
The multiplayer game will be divided into rooms. By a click of a button you will be able to open a room with other players. You will be able to chat with them before the game starts. There will be a ready button for starting the game. The text in the game will be randomly assigned. In the future we might add the option to add your own texts, but for the sake of providing quality texts we will rather start with current option. The game will have the default time of 1 minute. This might also be changed in the future. In one room you will be able to have multiple games, because you might want to challenge the same players again.
The main option will still be single player, but with the option to quickly change between a live multiplayer game. The focus is still on individual single play practice, since the TopTyper is a professional e-learning application with the mission to improve touch typing skill by providing a modern, high performance and functionally rich application.
I would like to thank all the players that use and enjoy the TopTyper e-learning application. They are the ones who will make the TopTyper multiplayer possible. The usefulness of the application can be seen from over 15000 test results. There are also a lot of other open ideas for the future development of the TopTyper application.
