    Online contact!

    I'm attempting to make a text based online RPG. I got interface and programming, but I still haven't the slightest idea how to use the phone line to send information. Does anybody know of any tutorials, etc.?

    Hi,

    It took me ages to learn windows sockets, finding a decent tutorial was the hardest part. But i found a kick one in the end:
    This covers everything like wininet (ftp), basic socket connections e.t.c

    Hope that helps, you should be able to apply it to your game once youve practiced a bit.

    Cheers
