Hi, I have implemented a game that polls the server every 10 seconds. It works fine on the emulator, but on the phone there are problems. Testing with a 7210 and 3510i.
On one 7210 it will poll ok the first few times, then will keep missing polls. On another 7210 it seems to be polling every 10 seconds, but often data doesn't get through to the server. but then other times it will get through.........
Anyone else had similar problems? Am thinking of writing a protocol to remember data that should have been sent, and getting acknowledgements, re-sending data if no acknowledgement received.
i have watched your threads about gprs connections on forum nokia and want to ask you if you have any new ideas how it should working without polling the server.
we are developing a turn based game and at the moment we are polling every some sec. (midp 1.0 /http) which is not the best way - but i think always the only way
