    I'm reading Shiva docs and asking this in their forums, but thought it would be nice to hear somewhere else than from the lion's mouth...

    ...so, I've seen some Shiva users browsing these forums.

    Anyone managed to create an online multiplayer (non MMO) using Shiva? I believe v1.8 brings some sort of server-client possibility.

    Any links? Resources? Thoughts about Shiva's multiplayer options.

    I think at this stage everyone is just getting started with the networking, and from what I've read the people talking about MMOs are the inexperienced ones ;) 1.9 will be in beta at the end of this month, so it'll be interesting to see what that brings.
