Hey all, I persuaded my teacher into letting me do my 4th semester synopsis on Lag -management/compensation in MMOG's.

If any of u know of some good sites that cover this subject or otherwise have knowledge or material on the subject please let me know.

Pretty much anything that deals with client/server delay management, that kind of thing... k thx :P

heh, yea I wonder how much if anything they'd give me if I asked them :D

But the kewl thing is that I'm doing this on the basis of AO.... since lag is so apparent. But seriously, all MMOG's have lag and AO isen't worse then any other I've tried. There will always be lag in MMOG's untill the worldwide bandwith gets ALOT larger. All they can really do is find good ways of compensating for the lag. FC has done a so so job IMHO, not compensating for the lag they know is gonna show up enough. You still see lag damage catch up with you all of a sudden. Takes foreva to stand up or sit down in mass battles. takes forever from you hit 'Q' till your character begins shooting... stuff like that.

I find this really interesting from a programmer's point of view, which is why I'm fairly excited about getting to do this for my Examen -thingy :)

I read some nice article about valve's/sierras new approach to internet gaming, somewhere on gamespy I think. A old one. I was also planning to do a followup series of interviews with some developers through my site, but never did. (www.bondelan.org)
