Lessions from LucasFilm
These games overcome or work around the Internet's greatest gaming flaw: lag time, or latency. Activisions Net Storem, for example, retains the action of a traditional combat strategy game but dodges the latency problem by removing troop micro-management. You can place troops, but you can't direct individuals. And if your're disconnected, your soldiers keep fighting untill you return.
Virgin Interactive's SubSpace, a space shoot-'em-up game, handles up to 120 players... To get around latency issues, Virgin gice the spaceships large turning radiuses. This enables your computer to more accurately predict the movement of opponents, resulting in smoother play.
