Getting Started with MLAPI

MLAPI is a mid-level networking library built for the Unity game engine to abstract networking. This allows developers to focus on the game rather than low level protocols and networking frameworks. All this is provided for free under the permissive MIT Licence by Unity and the MLAPI collaborators. MLAPI is open source with no attached costs or limitations, giving you the opportunity to develop features alongside Unity.

For a users view into Unity MLAPI, see Unity Multiplayer Resources content including sample code, Boss Room tutorials, and community contributions including Dapper Dino's video series.

Content Licenses

All MLAPI code and documentation is covered by MIT license. See Licenses for more information. Sample code may include links to GitHub code repositories.
