Games Industry Concept: "Multiplayer Scalability as Middleware Game Software Suite"

Hello All,

Those of us as avid gamers be it on the PC/Mac or a video game console have had our noses against an artificial ceiling imposed by game publishers. What I mean for over a decade if not more multiplayer games as mostly FPS (First person shooters) combat games. Have only offered an upper limit of 64 (32 vs. 32) players per game round on a server. This Status Quo has created a vacuum of Opportunity for an enterprising game software company, if not a collective of grass roots coders / modders.

Game developers be they: DICE, Infinity Ward, Treyarch, Bungie, etc... Have forced fed gamers an artificial scale of multiplayer game play for far too long. Their reasons however have been valid to a point, be it restrictions on game development of time, resources such as labor and money, or plain lack of will power and vision in the final game design document. This game industry attitude has been prevalent for a dozen years now since the very first multiplayer games were 8 (4 vs. 4) players. Soon they leaped to 16 (8 vs. 8) and again they doubled over the years to 32 (16 vs. 16). Here's a little history the very first modern era multiplayer was on the "Atari ST" video game console for a game called "MIDI Maze". It debuted in 1987 and allowed up to 16 players to play together. Fast forward to the classic "Doom" in 1993 that allowed up to 4 players simultaneously. Where just a year prior in 1992 the father of the modern FPS shooter "Wolfenstein 3D" debuted by ID Software and Apogee Software as the publisher.

Now let me bring you closer to our early 21st century whereby a visionary game developer known as "Zipper Interactive". On the "PlayStation 3" console created a ground breaking FPS 256 Multiplayer Game Experience server side. The game is known as "MAG: Massive Action Game" that game title came out in 2010. I'm sad to say "Sony Computer Entertainment" the ones that support all things "Playstation". Bought out the once independent game developer and have shuttered them last year or so. The "MAG" multiplayer game servers will be shut down on January 1st, 2014 for good.

Aside from MMO FPS game titles such as "Planetside 1 & 2" brought to us by "Sony Online Entertainment". If not the MMOSIM known as "War World II Online" brought to us by game developer "Cornered Rat Software" with mixed results. Are the outstanding larger scale mutliplayer game experience that are combat shooter related known to the global consumer market.

Do take heart during my research for my innovative concept today I was pleasantly surprised it wasn't original. To say a Swedish non-profit staffed by 25 people created a Middleware Game Software that includes ground breaking multiplayer scalability. They're known as "Much Different".


Much Different "Man Vs Machine" (Link)

What "Much Different" accomplished took them 2 years to build and that was a 1,000 player internet browser FPS game. (technically they only got 999 players) They have moved onward to having supported "Battlestar Galactica" by game publisher "Big Point". Besides having recently been picked by "Behaviour Interactive" for the MMO of "Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade". Press Release (Link)

What I thought up as a innovative concept still stands as a market opportunity beyond that of a Visionary non-profit Swedish game software company. I would hope a competitor anywhere on this globe of ours could give "Much Different" a run on its world class multiplayer experience. Again I reiterate a game software company or a collective of like minded grass roots coders / modders could launch a venture in this direction.

This is what I a futurist innovator had in mind a software company or grass roots group offering an open source middleware of game utility software suite. Produces a demo that provides a 128 (64 vs. 64) FPS multiplayer game server experience. The demo could even provide a bare bones simplistic FPS multiplayer game as a proof of concept of said technology. That way anyone world wide could patch together either a rudimentry or sophisticated multiplayer game experience. That would Frickin Shame Game Publishers to jump on this Middleware Band Wagon. So tomorrow's FPS or even RPG games like "Neverwinter Nights" fame could have beyond the stagnant 64 (32 vs. 32) multiplayer game server experience.

The middleware game software suite can literally scale upwards to support 256 (of "Zipper Interactive" fame), 512, or even 1024 game multiplayer experiences. Such a software game company could go on to offer consultancy services to supplement their revenue needs.

Here is the (Link) to Pikkotekk multiplayer game technology experience provided by "Much Different" as an example. I believe they are coding in a language called "Unity" for their platform of choice.

If ambitious grass roots coders / modders did come together for such a open source venture. Their offering is only open source for non-commercial usage. So corporate clients would pay market driven license fees to use the middleware game software developed by their efforts. Where everyone else in a truer open source initiative becomes the guinea pigs. To test and help develop such a middleware software suite according to their specific project needs.

Like I've stated prior the Market Opportunity is here now! "Much Different", shouldn't be the only off the shelf middleware game software provider globally. For such a game technology that would otherwise be developed in-house by game developers. "Much Different", even has launched a kiddie MMO for toddlers called "Badanamu World"(Link) for the South Koreans from what I understand.

So who else in Europe, Asia, or in the United States is bold enough to pursue such a vision to break the dozen years multiplayer artificial barrier from the games industry?

Jewels of Truth Statement: "On Dharma"

Dharma:

When you do a labor of love all your own it is a divine experience to be enjoyed. Such a dharmic passion aids the whole world as God shall be your witness to the joy in your heart and in your work. Do not allow difficulties to disturb you. Just carry on with your love and your love will enfold you and deliver you to your worthy destination. Be careful not to get cocky nor self-centered to the point you lose sight of the reason and intention of your passion. Otherwise you shall invite misery and pain to take you down into an abyss. Be open to making mistakes, but also be open to learning and making corrections as needed. Remember it is such an unconditional Love acted upon that shall take you through a joy where wonders will shower you always by grace. Amen.  ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

Jewels of Truth Statement: "On Comedy"

Comedy:

Comedians are healers of the heart. Their buoyant comedy transcends the common place into the absurd. Such laughter makes us happy fools in Spirit, but adjusts us to the crazy reality of our day and age. Comedians act as fools, but in disguise they are sharp as a tack. Sages in costume acting like fools but in reality are commentators of our day. A true personification of the "Wise Fool" am I as well. Living, laughing, and crying tears of joy to make peace with this world of ours. Through the grace of God dare I laugh out loud and be heard by my brothers and sisters in Spirit. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

Jewels of Truth Statements & Favorite Quotes of the Month

Hello All,

I hope things are well on your end of the world. Albeit the world is in constant flux no matter if we're causing it or not. Change may be an ever revolving reality, however it is not the only reality we must contend with on a daily basis. Whenever you feel yourself being suffocated from the pressures of your life. It is always safe to retreat into your sacred places in spirit. In order to recharge your senses and to surmount your difficulties that from a distance aren't as difficult to scale in time.

Today's trio of "Jewels of Truth" spiritual wisdom statements are on the topics of a: Revolution, Poverty, and on Oneness. Written originally back in late January 2010 in the numbered series of #1012-1014.

As always may you find the nugget of truth of what I attempt to convey.

Be well and enjoy.

------------------------------------------

1012) The death to a free and fair market society is that of unfettered capitalism run amok without societal safeguards. Monopolies become clumps of staggering behemoths that intimidate any nation in good times and certainly bad ones. In fear of being to big to fail, which is code speak for corporate welfare from the State. A near blank check to do as the enterprise wishes in order to stay artificially alive. Any monopoly propped up by the State soon becomes a puppet of one or the other. Where capitalists comport themselves with near impunity as being nearly above the law. Or the State assumes ultimate authority to decide what is in its own interests using the guise or facade of a corporate entity as its outreach mechanism. 

A truly free and fair enterprise market society is like a mighty roaring river. It may occasionally overflow its banks of prosperity amongst the masses. Yet if a drought does occur those incapable of survival must wither and move onward to other ventures. Interference that causes reckless behavior from within any industry or the State itself by being asleep at the switch as regulators. Only acts as a societal disease agent spreading virulent strains of incompetence, corruption, abuse, and collusion to all equally. Capitalism becomes a hoax or an unruly Hydra a beast like any other when not kept in check for the safety of the citizen and consumer alike. Fiat tendencies and bitter rivalries will cause near revolts in all chambers of power as ego's rule the day.

As the commoner gasps at the childish tendencies of those promoted by enterprise to success. If worse our elected or appointed politicians acting like ivory tower divas. In order to act out their ideological tantrums at the expense of the general welfare of the whole society. They allegedly swore an oath to govern with dignity and hold their office in higher esteem. Expect the citizenry to tolerate much of the shenanigans of such lofty personalities acting like spoiled brats.

However do not expect a blank check or a free pass when the citizenry become unruly by civil protests or plain ugly riots. This is when all suffer knowing that there is a true vacuum of power due to a lack of centralized authority in government. All can be easily left for the ordinary person playing by someone else rules realizes they've been sold a false propaganda. This is when civility in discourse takes a back seat to get down and dirty with all on an equal basis whether innocent or guilty. The days of smooth talking leaders gives way to a near fatal dose of a reality check.

Only the brave at heart capable of articulating the wisdom of the ages with a cool head. Will become the peace makers of tomorrow for the present moment may decry the lust of violence. Due to the angst of betrayal from the masses only having rage to direct at those perceived responsible for their own demise. Men and women of principle may become drowned out in the short run. However the marathon of leadership belongs to them always by their just acts and sensible plans laid out for all. Thus the days promise becomes the new song to live by for the generations to come. With a virtue and a promise that is both truthful and trustworthy.  ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.


1013) To eradicate poverty of the human condition is easier than eradicating poverty of the human spirit within. One form of poverty is of the physical body and the other is of the heart and mind. To eradicate poverty of the human condition simply put one must have the basic necessities to living. Such as: food, clothing, and good shelter. In the modern era this becomes considerably expanded to include access to: quality healthcare and education, transportation, with employable skill sets.

For the alternative is worse to live from one generation to the next in perpetual servitude. Where freedom may be present in principle however liberty is nowhere to be found in practice. Thus a desperate people do things that is best left to the imagination be it criminal or otherwise. Compassion must not only come from the regular citizen connected to the philanthropic world. It must also stem from the National State lest one form of misery spreads like a cancer to other segments of the society as a whole. As one is lifted out of mortal poverty the quality of everything in one's world increases positively. In accord to the real meaning in spirit of freedom and the pursuit of liberty for all.

To lift a human being out of a spirit of poverty is harder still to resolve. One needs to be nurtured by example on the natural prosperity of our created universe. To be lovingly shown the ways of a grateful heart for what one may have, no matter its current quantity. To be given examples of generosity where one must act in kind with a compassionate stance towards all. Most importantly is to be taught the act of unconditional Love for oneself, for others, and the greater environment at large. Which is the cure all of any ailment of our Spirit within. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.


1014) We as an expression of Life manifest on this Earth are of One combined Spirit. Only in our frail thinking minds do we negate such a great truth of being one in spiritual kinship. If not for the compassion of our hearts can we surmount the false divisions we uphold through the mind.

Our mortal minds can be transitioned into a more robust truer form of "Unity Thinking". However it will be based upon releasing on what holds us back. By welcoming the truth of our Oneness in Spirit through constant mindful surrender. Such a surrender does not denote succumbing to the whims of another person. This surrender is sublime in a vulnerable fashion as a very personal walk with yourself in tranquility. One that will uplift both your mind and heart in one fell swoop as an act of living grace.

Our Unity as Souls comes from the wellspring of our inherent divinity because God(dess) has loved us since the dawn of Creation. Such a love is dynamic, it is vital to the very scope of our spirits to function within every dimensional reality we may find ourselves within body and of spirit. Thus we become enabled not just as living people, but as triumphant souls bringing to life a version of paradise on Earth many refer to as the "Garden of Eden". Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

 If they listen, and serve him, they complete their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasantness. ---Job 36:11

We are all visitors to this time, this place. We are just passing through. Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love... and then we return home. ---Australian Aboriginal Proverb.

Let no feeling of discouragement prey upon you, and in the end you are sure to succeed. ---Abraham Lincoln.

Your vision will become clear only when you look in to your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes. ---Carl Gustav Jung.

Jewels of Truth Statement: "On Bliss"

Bliss:

For those who seek "Bliss" without being ignorant. The path is not an easy one, however it is achievable by the gentle hands of grace within your own soul. To achieve this bliss through awareness one must surrender all that is vain and worrisome. By surrendering your viewpoint of being right versus being good. Will allow you the freedom to experience bliss with abundance.

Be centered within that which is true and purest. Where your best guide is that of total love for all that is sacred and divine. Be aware that this path will undo your own vain human ego. By allowing a freedom where few can navigate without prejudice in their hearts. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

Jewels of Truth Statement: "On Truth"

Truth:

Truth has two forms in speaking to all. Thus sweetly by grace or antiseptically hard by the balance of karma. Either way can heal your self-inflicted wounds or purge unwanted germs (issues) in your life. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

Jewels of Truth Statement: "On the Holy Spirit"

Hello All,

Today I want to share with all of you the "Jewels of Truth" spiritual wisdom statement that technically completed Volume 4 of this series. Numbered at #1460 written back in early April of this year. The topic is on the "Holy Spirit" itself by how our mutual love as souls, known otherwise as agape. Transcends our self-imposed boundaries as people, even our feeble thinking of what reality encompasses as a whole.

As always may you find this line of thought intriguing, if not inspiring to each of your own spiritual traditions. With much love to all of you in our mutual divinity. Amen.

-----------------------------------------

1460) All Love when it is sincerely offered without prejudice nor obligation becomes truly redemptive in the sight of God himself. Such a Love that is fully realized is by any other name a living grace. Extended to one another as we remind each other that Heaven is a real place in Spirit. Not in a obscure mythological corner of creation that meta-physicians would consider as a dimensional planar realm only accessible to Angels and Mystics. This limitless Love is a good that is steeped not just in our finer qualities as living mortal beings. But for all the gracious souls that have lived, are living, and will live one day to come once more in creation.

"Heaven and Hell", are more trans-dimensional places we ourselves bring into this our shared reality on this one precious Earth right now. If not the countless worlds to come as we spread amongst the cosmos as hopefully a dignified species in our collective future.

We must maintain the standard of grace that has been shown to us by the union of loving masters across our combined histories. We keep our ascended masters, saints, prophets, and God(dess) alive each time we act in accord to their own miraculous principles not just as souls, but as humane beings within creation. By spreading any litany of sacred holy texts as wisdom, as the good news, and certainly as a mutual love become as incarnated flesh originated from our divine spirits. This is what is meant as "Unconditional Love" as a principle applied to daily living. Or in other words as the "Holy Spirit" as it is known as God(dess) or Absolute Love as a Divine Law of all miraculous creations. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

Jewels of Truth Statement: "The Rule of Law Does Not Guarantee Peace"

Hello All,

Today's "Jewels of Truth" spiritual wisdom statement may appear more secular than I sought it out to be. Nonetheless its on the topic of Society in a distant future Volume 5 of the series. Numbered at #1528 and written this past late July. I'm sharing it today since it seems very apropos as a topic for any nation under the sun today on Earth.

May you reflect on the topic and consider its implications for yourselves.

As always be well in Spirit Divine.

----------------------------------

1528) All societies are a messy affair be they a democracy to a totalitarian regime in origin. A society in essence and substance is a social contract of governance. An observed act by the rule of law or the fiat commanded actions of a few in ruling power. Such a realization out of ignorance does not come easy for the citizenry of any populist nation. Albeit the powers at be may attempt to appease the masses at its own undoing if not diligent of its actions.

A society is not a panacea of well being. That depends how well its State institutions govern the masses. Lets not forget crimes against humanity can be equally committed by a democracy as can any belligerent dictatorship. The "United States of America" near genocide of its indigenous cultures in the 19th to 20th century is but one example in world history. No matter the idealism a nation or society may have as a perceived noble pursuit of freedom and self / global enrichment. It shall succumb to its own foolish aggrandizement's out of nationalism for lack of a better word in principle.

Only a near corrupt free environment by the rule of law of just and common sense fair laws. Will put any nation under the heavens on the noble trajectory of supremacy over itself and its near equals. Economic interests should not be at odds of government as a regulatory body. Lest chaos is enshrined by unregulated misdeeds by Capitalists run amok creating an Oligarchy in their own Image and Likeness.

There is but one Immaculate society ever created and that utopia is called Heaven. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

Jewels of Truth Statement: “On Success”

Success:

Winning in life should not be dictated by the standards of a society, especially by others. Winning is a personal choice set by hopefully modest gains dictated by worthy goals that are achievable by an individual. And, winning must not come at an expense too great to pay. Lest one reaps hardships and regret along the way. By pursuing objectives that are punitive rather than complimentary in nature. Winning is a personal benchmark always to be valued, but not exalted above others. —-Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

Jewels of Truth Statement: "On Souls"

Souls:


Many have stated why are we born into corporeal form as physical beings? It is said for the purpose to grow and mature by acts of unconditional Love. As souls we are perfect due to the Image and Likeness of God(dess) within us. But as physical beings paradoxically we are flawed. It is for this purpose we are born to live and than eventually die to physical creation. This paradox of being a perfect soul and yet have a flawed physical corporeal body. Allows us as spirits to grow and mature for the common good of creation.

The womb of creation allows all life be it physical or spiritual to flourish. Without such a physical realm of creation perfect souls would have very little to keep occupied with on behalf of God’s grand majestic mystery. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.
