    Right, and luckily PHP is a lot like C.

    the OP doesent necessarily need to learn PHP as the server side scripting could be done in Python.

    Lol, no way! PHP is like the ugly mutant baby of the C family.

    And Python is just python which is bad enough all by itself.

    I do probably 90% of my current work in PHP and it is a great language once you've learned to deal with some faults.

    What ever happened to VRML? I used to hear about it a lot over a decade ago, but now I never hear about it?

    1. How does C++ start of when coding the source code. like #include ect.
    2. How long will it take to learn c++.
    3. Would it be possible for me to make a normal virtual world when I have learned some of c++.

    4. What happens if I need help on something who do I turn to.
    1. writing a hello world program is a good start. start with -
    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
     
    int main(){
       printf("Hello World!\n");
     
       return 0;
       }
    2. the rest of you life, and then some. Ive been [programming going on 30 years, 12 of that with C/C++ and I still learn new thing every day. Granted its mostly nuances of various API calls, not significant architectural features, although there are several areas of the language that I really don't fully grasp yet because i haven't had a need to use them.
    3. The complexity of a virtual world woudl define the requisite skills in creating it. A tic tac toe game is a virtual world, albeit a very simple one. You should probably start off making simple games before tackling an MMO since MMO's draw very heavily on pretty much every aspect of programming there is.
    4. Most people on this board will be happy to help you with programming questions as long as you have made at least some effort to solve teh problem on your own, i.e. show us what you have tried and we will make suggestions on how to do it better.


    Personally I don't see the necessity for LUA or PYTHON. I'm nto sayign they woudlnt improve productivity, just that they arent a critical requirement.

    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    Where can I type out a source code and does the compiler make a client automatically during publishing.

    You use a source editor. Every tutorial, every book, and a board search here can give you suggestions. Do you really need to be spoon-fed every bit of information?
    All the buzzt!

    Well maybe. It just depends on your definition of "virtual world". If you use your imagination you might see tic tac toe as an office with 9 cubicles and the X's and O's would be males & females... OK I admit, I'm pretty bored today.

    I just wanted to say -- before this deteriorates into a PHP vs. Python flame war -- how much I enjoyed this thread.

    Andrew, I truly admire your ambition, but you have quite a ways to go before you can achieve your goals. While you're learning what you need on the technical side, you should also work on your humility and willingness to listen to others; having these traits -- and knowing when to exhibit them -- will get you far in life.

    The OP doesn't seem to understand the concept of management. You could throw everyone from this board into a project and still not produce what he wants. An MMORPG, or at least the one he is suggesting, requires a lot of management. Otherwise all you have is a bunch of programmers going their own way at their own pace which ends being nothing more than a huge mess.
