DOOM 3 Engine Networking Mod

zerOnet offers a small modification for DOOM 3 engine games that can significantly reduce the network usage in DOOM 3 (and the expansion), QUAKE 4, and Prey by an average of 50%. Word is: "The new snapshot sizes range from 10% to 90% of their original size without changing any of the original code's reading/writing data, all the bit sizes are the same and no functions have been swapped with smaller versions (eg 'WriteShort' instead of 'WriteLong')."

What is really strange is why don't these game companies dissect Tribes 1 and 2 netcode and figure out how they were able to allow 16/16 and 32/32 games with vehicles in full 3d with minimal to no lag? And this was how many years ago?

Some T2 games supported up to 128 people smoothly. To me, that is amazing and I'm dumbfounded as to why it can't be duplicated in today's newer engines...theres some pretty obvious reasons here but there's always workarounds.

If that means that you died, even though you shot a guy with an AWP, heard the gun go off & all that, then that's just too fucking bad for you then. The server says your client is a liar & overrides you & you die.

I thought that was bad enough until I tried Halo 1 MP for the much bs going on there in every single game I play because of the networking model/Gearbox's shitty port of it. The game's still fun though...:)
