Robust, Efficient Networking

Austin GDC 2008

Ben Garney, Pushbutton Labs

Lots of games have bad networking. Not a lot of games have great networking. Learn about the ingredients and design decisions that are needed to keep your game running smoothly in even the worst network situations.

Note: KeyNote won't export the talk as PPT. I have recorded myself giving the talk in my living room, and that is linked below instead. I also have an MP3 of the session at Austin. The session audio is much better, but the video has the visual aids.
