Adaptive Event Dissemination for Peer-to-Peer Multiplayer Online Games

Gabriele D'Angelo, Stefano Ferretti, Moreno Marzolla
2011 Proceedings of the 4th International ICST Conference on Simulation Tools and Techniques  
In this paper we show that gossip algorithms may be effectively used to disseminate game events in Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Multiplayer Online Games (MOGs).  ...  Game events are disseminated through an overlay network. The proposed scheme exploits the typical behavior of players to tune the data dissemination.  ...  The motivation for this work originated in the need to efficiently disseminate events in large Multiplayer Online Games over peerto-peer systems.  ...

A synchronization protocol for supporting peer-to-peer multiplayer online games in overlay networks

Stefano Ferretti
2008 Proceedings of the second international conference on Distributed event-based systems - DEBS '08  
We propose a new synchronization protocol devised to support multiplayer online games (MOGs) over peer-to-peer architectures. The dissemination of game events is performed through an overlay network.  ...  Peers are kept synchronized thanks to an optimistic mechanism which is able to drop obsolete events (i.e., events that lose their importance as the game goes on) and to allow different processing orders  ...  INTRODUCTION Multiplayer Online Games (MOGs) recently gained more and more attention from the the distributed systems research community.  ...

2007 Proceedings of the 6th ACM SIGCOMM workshop on Network and system support for games - NetGames '07  
With widespread use of the Internet, Massively Multiplayer Online Games (MMOGs) are becoming increasingly popular.  ...  In this framework, the functionalities of a traditional game server are distributed, capitalising on the potential of P2P networks, and enabling the MMOG to scale better in both communication and computation  ...  for efficient game zone structure maintenance, and direct P2P connections are established on demand for the dissemination of time critical events.  ...
