Update! Made a blog!!MOJAGINEBLOG!
Hey guys, Im currently working on a Java MMORPG engine, called Mojagine. It means: M
No, I know the following line may cause a rant or so, but I have never made a graphical RPG in java. Really I have only made the following in java:
A chat program
A two player sidescroller
A one player asteroids like game
And my biggest project ever...
A text MUD!
Now, I understand networking, and I have a tile engine worked out, a server, a client that reads the engine, with a chat "box (really just text overlays in the corner.)" and also the players image of course (and the viewing of other players.)
As of now, there are no player saves, inside the folder, instead players are saved inside the server program, so that gives us a problem, that if the server is reset, all players lose their saves. So as of now, I'm working out a system of text files to store that info (trying to make this an easy to use engine for newbies, like Eclipse or XtremeWorlds. No MySQL...) But now for my biggest problem (dont laugh!!!)
I need to make monsters... Well my current plan is to create monster objects, with a folder for them, and the monster "objects" would act as a mobile tile, and could then be placed in the map editor. Also Items. Items should be fairly easy, but its adding them so the player may equip the items.
So to sum it all up, I know my stuff for server shit, but suck with client side shit. Really what I am asking for is if someone would like to join me, and work on the client side stuff.
So far not the prettiest engine, but I have the hard stuff down...BLOG!
