In this new article in the series dedicated to Overcast, the cloud solution for SmartFoxServer 2X, we will describe how to use a database server alongside SmartFoxServer.
In this first part of the article we will focus on launching the database, populating it with some test data and configuring SmartFoxServer to connect to it. In the second and third parts we will deploy an Extension in SmartFoxServer to test the connection with a query.
In this third article in the series dedicated to Overcast, the cloud solution for SmartFoxServer 2X, we will focus on the deployment of your games onto a cloud server.
For this purpose we will use one of the existing SFS2X examples, the Tris game (aka Tic-Tac-Toe), which we released for almost all supported platforms. We will refer to the Unity version of the example, but all the concepts relevant to the purpose of this article apply to any version.
