Highly configurable and extensible implementation of Rollback Netcode with full asynchronous IO.

Heavily inspired by GGPO.


Traditional techniques account for network transmission time by adding delay to a players input, resulting in a sluggish, laggy game-feel. Rollback networking uses input prediction and speculative execution to send player inputs to the game immediately, providing the illusion of a zero-latency network. Using rollback, the same timings, reactions, visual and audio queues, and muscle memory your players build up playing offline will translate directly online. Backdash is designed to make incorporating rollback networking (aka. Rollback Netcode) into new and existing games as easy as possible.
