Cocos Plugin - Quickstart
Edgegap fully managed game servers and automated orchestration leverage the world’s largest distributed edge network to deploy game servers nearest to your players.
This allows your multiplayer to reduce latency by up to 58% and delivers up to 78% “real-time” latency (sub-50 ms) vs. traditional public cloud1 for your game and players.
For devs, integration is refreshingly easy, low code, and takes minutes thanks to our fully compatible Cocos plugin with versions Cocos Creator (3.6.1) and above. It definitely won't work in the version before 3.x.
What to Expect
Create an account on Edgegap.com – Its easy & free. Our onboarding walks you through all the steps listed below.
How to install & launch the plugin:
Download the plugin from our GitHub, then drag & drop it in Cocos extension plugin folder.
Start Cocos Creator, and from the "Extension" located at the top of the editor, select "Edgegap / Open Panel"
Ready - Input the "Edgegap Integration" parameters from your web account (see image below). Then…
Set – Click on “Build".
The build process will automatically build the server, create a Docker image, push it to our registry, and create the application.
Go - Once completed, select "Push”.
And that’s it! Your game server is now automatically cached to 550+ locations globally, ensuring its deployed nearest your players when requested, on-demand, by your players.
