Gameplay Networking in Halo: Reach.

In case you missed David Aldridge's infamous GDC performance, we just uploaded all the slides and we're ready to show them off in all their epic glory. There's even a few extra sections Aldridge didn't have the time to delve into included for good measure. Be fair warned, though. The full file is more than 500 megabytes large. If you're conserving bandwidth, try the tiny file on for size first and see how it suits you.

"Gameplay networking is easy once you have a socket open!" Find out all the things that are wrong with that statement in this gripping tale of the perilous minefield that lies between sockets and game code. This talk describes in detail the patterns and processes that have allowed Bungie to repeatedly set new standards for gameplay networking quality. Come see how we develop competitive game mechanics that are fun over the Internet, learn what kinds of network introspection tools you need to build into your next online game, and marvel at the low-tech way we measure lag."

Bungie All Stars - Week 12 

Posted by urk at 3/28/2011 8:51 AM PDT

No glue required. (UPDATED!)

Alright, no Forge this week. Since Hal whipped you up some awesome wallpapers in Friday's update, I figure it's your turn to return the favor. Using the Theater, take a screenshot worthy of gracing my desktop. (It's a tall order. You should see what I have pinned up there right now. If I showed it to you, I'd have to kill you.)

Here are this week's rules:

  1. Snap a wallpaper worthy screenshot in Halo: Reach (if you want to slap in your own custom artwork, be my guest, but no funny business*).
  2. You have from this very second until Thursday, March 31st at 11:59pm PT to submit your entry for consideration to contest@bungie.com.
  3. Use the subject line “Bungie All Star Week 12” without the quotation marks.
  4. The size limit is 10MB. Include a preview image and a link to the original in your file share (unless it's custom art).
  5. One submission per person. Please include your Bungie.net profile and gamertag in your email.
Go!

*You can submit an original screenshot, your own art, or a blend of both. "Funny business" includes anything that we wouldn't publish to Bungie.net. Lewd stuff and the like.
