    What in C++ to use for an MMORPG?

    I'm aware how unintelligent I'm going to sound when I ask this. I'm completely oblivious in the subject of networking. But I don't need to be told how hard an MMORPG can be, I have done plenty of single player games. My question is what could I use from the C++ language to do the networking for an MMORPG? I heard ACE wasn't the best. I don't even know if it's a library in C++ I'm looking for, or if I just need to go for another language like Lua, or what. I really just wanted to know where to start so I could start buying books and researching. Also if anyone knows any good books that they could point out, that would be great. Thanks in advance.

    Well repeating yourself all over again is doing you no favours at all.

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.
