Project description


This is a demonstration package illustrating the use of python_banyan in creating a peer-to-peer game using arcade.



pip install p2p-arcade


sudo pip3 install p2p-arcade

                     [-p PLAYER]

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
                        None or Common Backplane IP address
  -n PROCESS_NAME       Banyan Process Name Header Entry
  -p PLAYER             Select player 0 or 1

After installation, to run the demo on a single computer, start player 0 (the coins) by opening a terminal and typing:


Next open a second terminal and type:

p2pa -p 1

This will open player 1's window (the human sprite). Move the mouse into this window, click the left mouse button to start the coins moving. Now click the right mouse button and start to collect the coins.

If you wish to run this as a distributed application, after opening up player 0's window, note the IP address being used by the backplane.
