Abstract

In a method (300) for providing an interactive game including three-dimensional graphics, input information is received (301) from a plurality of terminals, and the next game situation of the game world is determined (302) in the server system (410) on the basis of said input information. The method also includes determining (303) in the server system a plurality of player-specific views of the game world, which views correspond to said following game situation, and forming ( 304) a plurality of player-specific data entities, which describe said player-specific views. Said plurality of data entities is compressed (305), and each compressed data entity is sent (306) for transmission via the communications network to the terminal (420) to be compressed at the terminal and to be presented to the player via the user interface of the terminal. According to the invention, parallel service times are sequenced for each client in each process of the operating system, and when desired, especially when more than one process are performed on one server or when more than one process are performed on several servers, giving service time for performing the process isdone in a synchronized manner, especially with a separate synchronization device.
