The Wiki knows all…
and you can ignore the stuff on 3D, unless your text is 3D :p
??? The Wiki dosent help me. I want to create a TEXT-BASED. I need to
fine a good tortoral
I can’t give you any links because most of this stuff is just simple
server based code and use of a database. Languages like ASP.NET would
greatly simplify making those kind of games, but you could just as well
do it in PHP or CGI.
First and foremost, you need to design your game. You should brainstorm
all your ideas down and decide how you’re going to implement it.
What you need to do is look into:
1) Sessions / Cookies
3) Databases (MySQL is quite popular)
Since you want others playing online to interact with other players, you
will need to globalize the game states and players. This object should
be able to refresh itself outside of the HTTP scope (look into using
events - ASP.NET). On each interval, your global object will parse the
input queue from players and update the state of the game in a
synchronous manner. With AJAX, you can then transmit that data back to
the client to update their interface.
THANKS SO MUCH. I will start doing tose things rite away. I have all of
my ideas. But is thair any programs i should use?
I might be uninformed, but what’s the difference between a “text MMO”
and a MUSH/MUD/MOO?
If you want to set up a text-based multiplayer game, MU*s are pretty
good, and I use PennMUSH, which has some good tutorials.
Edit: Oh, in any case, you’ll need to learn coding to some degree. But
learning new things is very good for the brain. :)
Ellis: MUD type games usually involve telnetting into a server and
typing text commands to perform actions in the game. What the OP wants
seems to be a browser-based MMO, where you go to a webpage that displays
some statistics and things, and gives you some buttons to click on to
I doint want to make a mud i want to make a text game not with typing
commands. I play hundrids of them. Just clicking not commands. With a
email and so more.
ok i set up a ASP.NET C# page. I need a script for a sign up and log
You’ll probably need a database with a table in it that holds user names
and passwords. You’ll need to read up on how to create such a database
and how to access it using .NET.
ok wat about a sign up?
Ok i am configring a sever with MySQL with one should i do
Developer,Sever,Dedicated Mysql sever machine
These are questions easily answered with a little bit of browsing the
documents on the MySQL website. We’re not here to hold your hand through
every step; you need to do some of your own research.
im trying alot
ok i am sad to say but i am new to most of this, i need someone to walk
me through , this is my first game ever, I don`t want to give up.
Ah, ok, I understand now, the difference. Clicking versus reading and
typing. I’m an experienced MU* coder and Wiz, but have zero time (as
player, even) on a browser-based online text game. I could point you at
many good tutorials for MU* creating, but none for what you want to
Unfortunately, Lord Zack, you are going to have to learn to do it.
Somewhere, on Google or Ask.com, if you keep searching and input the
proper search keywords, is a tutorial to lead you step-by-step through
what you might need to make something like Camorra.
ok i understand…. but i have learned alllllooooooootttttt but not
knowing how to use a data base. Ok thxs, can u give me links to MU*s
stuff to help me make a MU*s.
It’s going to seem like I’m a very mean person now, but you’re going to
have to do your own research. I realize you’re a teenager (or at least
you come across as 13, the way you use ‘u’, don’t capitalize and the
overextension of “alot”), but one of the best favors ever done for me
was in High School. When I was grousing about a research paper on Kabuki
(this was in the days of libraries and card catalogs only, no internet,
no computers), she told me “You may well forget what you learn about
Kabuki while doing this paper, but you’ll always remember what steps to
take when researching.”
Go to Google. Type in: How to make a MUD. (Or MUSH)
See what comes up. Choose links. Read. Keep reading until you
You are the only one who can do this. If you can’t even go to Google and
have the initiative to read and learn, including learning about
databases in the simplest form, you may as well give up now and settle
for a life as a Manager at Wendy’s. ;)
ok im 13 but i doint quit. I will continue learning more abput the
langs. AND I WOULD NEVER WORK AT WENDEYS. That place has haert atcks on
Hey dude, I made a website specifically for people interested in
creating text-based RPGs. The URL is:
to “RPG Help” for information on creating your own RPG. I will add more
later, the site’s pretty new.
OK i will be using your site also i am a good html maker with exsperense
and want to help. plz E mail me At
