Great Explanation and help in the development,
This review is from: Massively Multiplayer Game Development (Charles River Media Game Development) (Hardcover)
When i got this book i had the impression it would teach me networking and howto program directplay, however this book is something i didnt expect to find .
Its a book about how to design a MMPORG (Mass Online Multiplayer Game) It is well written, by different known authors in this bussiness explaining the need of good design but also a good foreward knowledge of what you need to make a product succesfull.
I gave it 4 stars cause its a design book, and i expect a programming book so the title maybe misleading, in my first read it looked like an design book explaining techniques on how to improve the code but also howto envision the server/client software.
Great book for people who know UML and C++
a definitive must for any aspiting MMPORG programmer
