Ok I recently have been thinking about running my own MMO text based game. This is not really my field of expertise, I am an IT Professional but they really do not even touch base on a project like this.
I am wanna know how much the code for a text based game would be. I know there are variations so I will give some examples: Biocide, Piratequest, and Vilecity.
I would need the code installed on the server and set up accordingly. I would also need to know what kind of special skills I need to know or even if there are some. Really any advice or help I could get would be great. I am not really commited yet because I hardly know anything about this. I just wanna gather some information and make my decision from how I feel about it.
Any help or comments would be greatly appreciated.
