Receive packets in the thread or in game render.

18 May 2013 - 04:35 AM

Server sends many packets to one client example 100 packets/one second when client can receive only 40 packets/one second because client is handling packets in render function which reaches 40fps. In some minutes it makes big lag and client can't apply these packets to the game (can not keep up). I can't at the same time receive packets in thread and apply these informations to the game because it makes some problems in client's program and does crashes. I would receive packets in thread (it's much faster than game render function) and apply informations from packets received in thread to the game, but it's some strange method and makes a lot of not needed redirects thread->gameRenderFunction. What can I do with this? How work other multiplayer games, these receive packets in thread and apply them to the game render function? How it looks like?
