I’m trying to figure out how to put together a game that does realtime
networking, but can’t really grok how it all fits. The style of game I
want to do is somewhat like the Windows/PSX game “Worms”, but with the
option of either turn based or realtime.
The thing is, latancy seems like it would be a huge issue. The only real
solution I can think of is having a central server doing all the physics
calculations and sending back each frame to the clients which would
display it but that would leave a really lagged feeling on the client side
if the ping time was more than 50ms or so.
Is there a good solution for this? Or do people just generally hope it
doesnt cause trouble? Thanks
This is my signature. There are many like it but this one is mine.
