  • Microsoft wins FTC fight to buy Activision Blizzard

    Halo was mostly all about single player and early multiplayer/local multiplayer but their online netcode has sucked since Blood Gulch. Lots of games do networking horribly, I have been in gamedev making networking and I hate most of what people do. The ones that have a clean natting, based on enet style reliable UDP channels, RakNet style punch are better (RakNet was good until Facebook bought it). It has come a long way but also fallen back. Valve source netcode (on github) is probably the best and you can check it out here. They started with the best in Quake networking, then to Source.

    Probably not. It says Enet runs over UDP, which Web Browsers / WebAssembly / Emscripten don't provide. Web browsers / Emscripten provide TCP only (source). That, and Enet probably calls standard UNIX / Winsock functions, which Emscripten doesn't have. ENet would have to specifically support Emscripten as a target platform.

    Are you familiar with enet ? It's a popular C library which implements optional reliability on top of UDP.

    The other that is the base of most networking libs today is enet, one of the cleanest C networking libraries you will ever find. The RUDP and channels in it were very nice.
  • Making a multiplayer server
    4 projects | /r/VoxelGameDev | 6 Jun 2022
    Inconsistencies can be prevented by ensuring the server handles all operations and does so in a given order, then transmits the results to clients. I wrote a little about this for my game Avoyd a long while ago. Clients (including a client running the server) send an edit request via reliable ordered UDP (e.g. using Enet, Raknet, Steam Networking etc.) and the server places these in a single queue then performs the edits and sends the results back also using reliable ordered UDP.
  • How I Taught the D Programming Language at a Russian University

    I find this interesting. Vibe.d is async, but written in a sync fashion (in essence, the async is hidden in the i/o subsystem). For my class with grade-school students, I used enet (http://enet.bespin.org/) with a wrapper I wrote to automatically serialize messages.

    A popular simple low level open source reliable UDP library is ENet.

    -Improve the status of the Online Mode: This mode built with eNet, currently allows to create multiplayer races, but while it works acceptably well in a LAN, over the internet is unplayable presenting a huge lag, among other problems.
