To Start

You need to download the free pulse package and install it. This package contains…
• Pulse Server
• Many Samples (with source code)
• Pulse Game UI Framework (with source code)

To Run the Sample

Start the pulse server from the installed directory. Start the game from the sample directory. Please note that with the free server version you can only run one game at any given time. If you like to try a different sample, you first need to close all the game client instances of the other game.

The Pulse UI Framework

The pulse UI framework is great way to start your new multi-player game, it lets you focus on your game and takes care of the UI for general screen flow login, room management, chatting, friend making, player display, etc.
You will find the entire source for the framework in the download package; feel free to modify it as needed for your game.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
