It only took me a little over a year(first line of code was written 09/04/2011). Players can actually walk around now and interact and the other players can see movement live, as it happens. It certainly is a long way away from a game, but it is getting there. Check out the fraps below to see the active movement of different characters. Players would move at the same time(or microseconds apart) if I had more than one computer to play on.
