    Would it be easy too?

    I play an online management game called VirtualManager.com

    I want to create a website that helps the managers/users gain other information from the website. Like for example, how a player will turn out in 15 years time.

    Would this be easy to do? And how would I do this?

    If you are extracting information off of the website, I would suggest using sockets. It all depends on how you want to do it, for example, if you want to store the information retrieved on your server, it would be a bit more difficult. Then I'm guessing the other parts would be formulas to calculate up to the 15 years time, or whatever you plan on doing.

    This all depends on your knowledge and the way you do it. Personally I wouldn't do it the way Havoc suggested (Well most of it) What I would do is just scrape the information from pages automatically using cURL to login on to the site.

    You'd then need to do, like Havoc suggested, work out all the formulas and equations for said examples and probably others.
