what is this ?
changing communication protocol
that should be put in BOLD RED
you know that will break metaserver too ?
the answer should be yes.
you know that increasing load on a game
- that major limitation of this game is bandwidth communication
is major design misunderstanding(bad thing).
please, justify need for increase in number of message type.
like with Walt Disney graphic
if you can not, which you should not, means do not be crazy.
revert as soon as possible.
even protocol similation should prove you wrong.
if you do not understand, do not think twice
think about alternative for keeping message type been a byte.
