Other players may notice jerky movement and similar problems with the player associated with the affected client, but the real problem lies with the client itself. Because the solution is, in hindsight, deceptively simple, clients tended to admit they should have thought of it themselves.
Ping[ edit ] Ping refers to the network latency between a player's client and the game server as measured with the ping utility or equivalent.
However, the amount of packet-switching and network hardware in between the two computers is often more significant. While there may be numerous underlying reasons for why a player experiences lag, they can be summarized as insufficient hardware in either the client or the server, or a poor connection between the client and server.
The frequency at which frames are generated is often referred to as the frame rate. As such, the client has no direct control over the central game state and may only send change requests to the server, and can only update the local game state by receiving updates from the server.
The correct solution, however, requires you to draw lines that extend beyond the area defined by the dots. A low frame rate would therefore make the game less responsive to updates and may force it to skip outdated data.
This will usually result in the server seeing the client firing at the target's old position and thus hitting. In online games, the risk of cheating may make this solution unfeasible, and clients will be limited to sending relative states i.
The extra input lag can also make it very difficult to play certain single player games. Although radio propagation through air is faster than light through optical fiber, wireless systems are often shared among many users and may suffer from latency incurred due to network congestionor due to network protocols that introduce latency.
Thus, the player experiences a noticeable delay between pressing a button and seeing something happen on-screen. Trust clients[ edit ] It is possible for clients to tell the server what they are doing and for the server to trust the data it receives.
Or so their consultants would have them believe. Lag due to an insufficient update rate between client and server can cause some problems, but these are generally limited to the client itself.
Instead, the latency involved in transmitting data between clients and server plays a significant role. Interpolation works by essentially buffering a game state and rendering the game state to the player with a slight, constant delay. This usually causes severe confusion in the player resulting in the failure of the combination move.
Effects[ edit ] The noticeable effects of lag vary not only depending on the exact cause, but also on any and all techniques for lag compensation that the game may implement described below.
Essentially, the client will assume that a moving object will continue in the same direction.
Some factors that might affect ping include: Due to the various problems lag can cause, players that have an insufficiently fast Internet connection are sometimes not permitted, or discouraged from playing with other players or servers that have a distant server host or have high latency to one another.
When a new packet is received, the position may be corrected slightly.
