A generic proxy system for networked computer games

Martin Mauve, Stefan Fischer, Jörg Widmer


In this work-in-progress report we present the general out- line of a research project which aims at providing proxy sup- port for networked computer games. The problems of both client-server and fully replicated architectures are discussed and we reason that employing proxy technology, which has been successfully used for other networked applications, is advantageous for this class of applications as well. In partic- ular we describe how a proxy system for networked computer games can help with providing congestion control, achiev- ing robustness, minimizing the impact of network delay and providing fairness.
