client server achitecture
a while ago i started working on a mmo in esenthel but since i am not verry expirienced with networking i was wondering if anyone knows some good e-books/ other material about the use of networking and mainly about client server architecture

for the record i build this mmo for educational purposes its not yet a serious project i work on it by myself and try to learn as mutch as possible about game programming. and perhaps i nthe future i will get myself a good team.

best regards

RE: client server achitecture
I am now reading the following books about multiplayer games and their underlying structure and how you can best tackle this MMO of yours (800 pages each minimum):

- Programming multiplayer games / by Andrew Mulholland and Teijo Hakala

- Multiplayer game programming / by Todd Barron

- NETWORKING AND ONLINE GAMES: UNDERSTANDING AND ENGINEERING MULTIPLAYER INTERNET GAMES / by Grenville Armitage, Mark Claypool and Philip Branch

An MMO even for a school project is a big thing to do. Getting the Personal License gives you acces to a basic framework of an MMO created in Esenthel. The book by Todd Barron talks about implementing MySQL (therewith accompanied php) to make the game web-active as well.

Good luck mate (you need it smile ) !!!

You might check out as well: Massively Multiplayer Game Development 1 and/or 2 - edited by Thor Alexander

Think it is a really good book covering lots of single elements.
