    Unanswered: free code

    Hello, I am 13 years old and trying to create a mmorpg(massively multiplayer online role playing game) and need a database so people can register, buy weapons, kill other people, etc. The only problem is, I only know javascript and html. I was wondring if anyone had free code for MS Server 2000 that users of my game register, and it records the users username, password, etc.
    Thanks so much,

    -tyler

    And you should google data modeling techiques BEFORE youstart build the database

    Or ask here


    Good Luck

    The physical order of data in a database has no meaning.

    He should ask an Elf. They are supposed to be good at data modeling and get +2 on all schemas they create.

    Though I hear dwarves excel at data-mining...

    Trolls, as every game designer knows, automatically regenerate code.

    Tyler,

    There are so many different ways that this task can be handled, depending upon the requirements of the application, that I don't think you are going to find a black-box solution you can succesfully drop into your program.

    The good news is that tracking users is not a very complicated task, so it should not require many tables or a lot of SQL coding, depending upon how complex you want the security and user-rights to be.

    And since you are only 13, you have many years to figure out what is going to work best for you.

    If you decide to take on this task and have specific questions, then please post them here and we will try to help you out.


    ....now go finish your homework!

    pick up a copy of database design for the mere mortal.
    and read how the tables and data relate to each other.
    then start designing your db and ask as many questions here as you can.
