How to manage room for big virtual world MMORPG

Postby zain » 14 Jun 2011, 16:52

i doing my gradual test project by make mmorpg game based on sfs2x and flash as 3.0 desktop game. i confuse how to manage room to make it seamless and only people in certain area that get sync with other people on that area. but they can move from an area to other area without loading nor portal system. can i just make 1 room for everyone? how much a room can handle user to join? but if i make 1 room, it's look like not efficient, because user far from some other user, get message that he doesn't need
anyone can give me a suggestion?

Using 1 room is not advisable, due to the large traffic you might generate.
You have to separate users in multiple rooms matching separate zones in your virtual world, and look for a way to switch room depending on the movement of the user on the map.

About the buffer, I don't know. I think you will need to find out which the best approach is.
About the number of users in a Room there's no hardcoded limit, but a large amount of users in the same room could generate quite a lot of traffic. Again this is something that you have to figure out conducting specific tests based on your application specs.

Well, you simply need to do smartfox.send(new JoinRoomRequest("roomName")). Now you just need to call that method when you really want to switch to another room.
