i am trying to create a RPG game using php like the one which already existed, kingdom of loathing.
i have been trying this for quite a long time. So, can some pros out there help me with this problem.
I don't claim to be a pro but:
1. Kingdom of loathing is a great game, w00t!
2. These things are massive and complicated so comitment is needed, blah blah blah...
3. Basically you need to thing about data that your players will have (e.g. spells, items, stats) and build up a database structure using stuff like one to many relationships. Then, add things (vauge, huh?) that manipulate the players data. Tie this up in a decent looking thing with purdy pictures.
The main thing to remember is that planning is essential, think about how different things manipulate each other and how data works. Don't even touch the computer, use paper and sketch it out.
