this is bad, no one would play a network rpg.
What about existing DBP IP commands?

People have told me its very hard makeing fast paced multiplayer games due to packet lose, but there is a few DBP chat programs.
(about a page of code)

If people can make a chat program, then an MMORPG could be a very advanced extension of that maybe?

I think i'll have a look for some of those chat programs maybe contact the authors and ask how they made it


EDIT: I have just e-mailed my school to ask about them getting DarBASIC Pro and am awaiting there reply

P.S. I thought you could only get DarkBASIC and DarkBASIC Pro online obviously i was wrong as i have just seen DB for 40 quid and DBP for 70 quid in PC World

It used to be shareware, but its been very succesfull and has become comericial too
(much like PSP).

It has to be DBP, Dark Basic is pretty useless in comparison

a network RPG does not necisarily use LAN, and the built-in direct play is useless but i can write plugins for DBP, a network RPG is like Diablo 2 and Phantasy Star Online for instance, an MMORPG requires a strong server and a fast internet connection sumthing even most of my servers lack...

so an mmorpg with player run servers basicly ok i'll go with that and maybe an official main server as well


I need your help I can't decide weather to have the game set during LBA, LBA2 or after


Edit: I found another mmorpg Deloria Online I might contact the makers and ask about the engine maybe, I'm checking the game out now

thats what my bestfriend thinks only problem is that i'll have to make my own story for it but it does give me an excuse to make a new planet and islands and stuff.

But having it set in the LBA games cuold be good as well because u could live through the events as a by-stander but a problem is that there will be loads more people walking around then there is in the games.

so we have 2 votes for after

After is good, but its an MMORPG, it dosnt need a story.
Loads of little storys, yes, but not a big one.
The story of a good MMORPG comes from the community that lives their.

Worry about it after the engine is set up.

P.S. Can we use some of ur other LBA fan songs that you have made?
hey small detail i said it was ok but ive changed my mind im going to use my lba fan songs in my game, althought i can and will make more, better than those i hope (u know when a product is for exportation, they always make it better than its own products.. lol kidding course)

I'm thinking maybe it would be better to do a browser-based Java game (as I am learing Java slowly at the moment) but first I'm gonna try and create a multiplayer java game (probably chess or summit simple)
