I am new here and looking to learn to start a game up

Recommended Posts

Whats up everyone ?

I go by the name Str8Klownin and I am looking to start a online game using one of the scripts from this site. 
I would like to make some cool friends on the way that can help me and hopefully be able to help others some day.

Welcome to MWG, well this is the perfect place to learn. Here's a few links to get you started

https://makewebgames.io/forum/43-gangster-legends-game-engine/

https://makewebgames.io/forum/46-new-worlds-engine/

 

I started off with MCCODE, but ended up becoming a big fan of GRPG and now using some weird script (I can't remember the name). I learnt and still learning from MWG when it comes to things so hopefully you have fun and learn from some of the biggest developers on here.

I don't know this engine. But try and create a new user and then login into that account and see if it works

@Str8Klownin910 If you notice the 'Gangsters: 0', that means there is currently no signed up accounts to your game; i'm assuming this is because you have not imported the database files (someone else had this exact same problem a couple days ago and posted it in the GL Discord). You need to import the schema.sql and data.sql to your database (phpmyadmin). The files can be found in the /install/ folder of GLV2. Once you have done that you will be able to login with the default admin account, or even make your own account and change it to an admin which can be found in the admin panel.

GL is a very good engine to learn with, it is written in OOP and it is quite easy to get the hang of once you have played around with it a bit. Goodluck.

I'm not familiar with the engine but if its an default account created try checking your phpadmin, but it says 0 gangsters so you might have to create an account.  If you have a skype or discord you can shoot me a message with your info I can try to help.

GL is good but i think you would be better learning with something a little easier like mccodes? you wont be launching a game anytime soon due to learning so might as well get the feel for the right engine for you

Yeah I installed McCodes 1 last night and I like it I have a few issues going on but I will keep tinkering with these issues a lil bit longer before looking for help I installed all the game scripts on this site and the 2 I liked was Gangster one and McCodes I really wanna stick with McCodes to get the hang of it more and then buy the version 2 one !

A little point that may be worth bearing in mind. McCodes (regardless of the version) whilst being great fun to play with and potentially worth a few bucks pocket money, is not going to be a good environment for teaching you or improving your existing PHP/SQL knowledge. The authors tried hard, but were themselves lacking in experience, thus the so-called "engine" is barely that, there is a raft of poor design decisions not to mention downright insecure code. And to make matters worse; if you look around these very forums for mods, there are very few that address any of these faults (and I include my own mods in this). Yes, you *can* make a high quality based on McCodes, but it takes a lot of work; not just in programming, you need to understand a little of how servers operate in order to address some of the more obscure bugs, and certainly a good bit of thought needs to go into how to balance the game as 95% of the games I've encountered are badly run, insecure, mismanaged.

Getting some experience with McCodes is a good thing, though it may be worth also looking at few of the other small "engines" to see if you can get some ideas from those and perhaps come up with a product that takes the good points from each, and reduces the number of potential bad points.
