 Abstract
In an Unity engine for multi-player online games, the main thread processing game logic must be separated from the network thread that is responsible for network packet communication. Packet communication between the network threads needs to drop packets that overlap in order to improve the rendering speed. In this paper, the packet discard policy of network thread is proposed for an Unity engine for multi-player online games. The proposed method is the hybrid method of both Partial Packet Discard and Periodic Packet Discard methods to improve the rendering speed by periodically discarding overlapped network packets managed by the queue. The rendering speed of the proposed method is analyzed and its effectiveness is verified by various packet generating simulations of the Unity engine for multi-player online games.
