PlanetSide 2 devs discuss their optimization effort "Operation: Make Faster Game!"
Today we've got a behind-the-scenes look at how Sony Online Entertainment approaches game optimization for the MMOFPS PlanetSide 2. In the first part of this cheeky video series "Operation: Make Faster Game!", members of the team discuss specifics of what they're working on. For instance, someone mentions that "input processing on the HUD" is causing a delay of 0.3/0.4 milliseconds.
If you're a fan of board meetings and lament the lack of a "Work Sim" genre, this video is for you. Sarcasm aside, it's always entertaining to hear a bit of game dev lingo thrown around.
