Dave Doni replied to Dave Doni's topic in For BeginnersReasons that make [u]Zend[/u] attractive to build [u]browser based mmo[/u] games are as follow: 1) Frameworks push developers like me to follow the MVC standard and not get into lazy habits. 2) Also Zend has corporate backing. That is why I am more attracted to Zend than [Cakephp, Symphony, Codeignitor, Yii etc]. Aside from our discussion: I was also looking at the [u]Command and Conquer[/u] built by EA [url="http://alliances.commandandconquer.com/"]http://alliances.commandandconquer.com/[/url] and I also noticed that they don't follow [b]microsoft MVC[/b]. I think game developers are not attracted to MVC. I would like to know what is the most common pattern that has high performance and used in [b]mmorpg[/b] type of games? Currently, I am doing my research, before I start programming the game. And I will keep you up-to-date if I find something interesting...
