Flash communication

Hello, I was working on a realtime multiplayer game, and noticed that data switching through PHP is just impossible… Well, it’s possible but just to slow, and is good only for turn based games. There is a solution - Macromedia Flash Communicator server, but it’s just too expensive. If you know anything that could change it I’d be very thankfull… Maybe there is some plugins for Apache :ne: :diss: :z:
