2011’s Final Dev Night

November 29, 2011 Comments off

Hello again, kind readers. Have exams got you down? Wish you could get together with like-minded game developers once again this term before all of your assignments and projects come crashing down upon you on Monday?

Fear not, our final Dev Night is here and is eager to help you forget about those pesky assignments for one whole evening! Sit down and get some work done on your latest game, have an intruiging chat about design, or even just work away on your last bits of class work. Whatever the case, you ought to come on over to MC 2054 this Friday, December 2nd anywhere between 7pm – 10pm.

As usual, you are free to show up whenever you’d like and work on whatever projects you’d like. See you there!

Talk: Real-time game networking.

October 31, 2011 Comments off

Online play and multiplayer are pretty much expected functionality of today’s console, PC, and even mobile games. Be it for chat, global score rankings, sharing content, or even head-to-head play, the internet has become an increasingly prevalent conduit for more connected gameplay. Arguably the most challenging form of online play that multiplayer can take on is that of the real-time domain: connecting a large number of players together in a 2D or 3D world and maintaining a low-latency simulation for them to play in.

This talk takes the shape of a case study, exploring the real-time networking strategies employed in an online, 2D overhead shooter game I developed from 2006 to 2008, built on top of UDP and featuring reliable in-order delivery of events and world synchronization information. I will be giving a run-down of the networking engine’s objectives, its feature-set, how it was implemented, and finally a Q&A session at the end.

“Real-time Game Networking” will be held by Stephen Whitmore on Wednesday November 2nd, 2011 at 6:00pm in MC 2054. See you there!
