Hello all Where can I find architectures and examples of building massive multiplayer game server Does the does the concept of building it on top of libenevt is right ? or I need to think more on thread per connection ? im targeting to web players playing from flash / html5 clients . Thanks
If you are thinking about a real time MMO and not a social MMO, it would definitely be worth taking a look at MV3D which is open source. It is mainly geared towards having a less lightweight client than flash, but I'm currently using it to make a browser based game and it's going well.
For a social MMO, I'd suggest building the server on the web framework of your choice rather than making your own server application. You can architect and scale your server similar to how large websites do it. There are plenty of online resources for doing that.
For either way, a great place to look is highscalability.com. In particular, here's some info on Playfish's architecture.
