Just a question:

Do you think JavaScript is the best solution for this? This feels like something that you would benefit from server side coding in, at least if you're not going for single-player only.

WELL i dont know.

Maybe php will be better than javascript. but over the past 2 days i have been learning the basics of javascript. we are lookin for a worldwide game that people sign up to and play on. with their own level,money and stuff like that.

we aim for a site like

http://sk.cyber-angels.com or http://koo.qgaming.com.

Which do you think is best.

i don't mean to discourage you guys, but this is a far bigger project than you understand. the first thing is that what you're aiming for, cannot be accomplished through javascript alone; you NEED to have server side scripts working together with javascript. Triglav (http://www.smokymonkeys.com/triglav/) is an excellent online RPG coded in javascript and php. it's a good place to go and see what can be accomplished. but note that he's just released version 0.56 or something. He's been working on that game for like a year and a half, or more, and he's just not a little over half done. and he's an experienced programmer.

building a game is not something you can just dive into; they require an indepth knowledge of programming concepts. that's why they usually end up costing so much; because they take a long time to make, they take a lot of hardwork and skill to make.

if you're really serious about doing this, you have to start with the basics, and work up from there. there are a couple of threads here that discuss where to go to start; i suggest reading those.

best of luck

yes your totally right there and we are very much into this and will get it done 1 way or another no matter how long it takes lol :thumbsup: well we will start anywhere and somewhere and hopfully get it finished sumwhere and sooner then most ppl and i think with as much help as possible we can do this in less then a year but not far off a year lol :P but anyways we are open for all help, i think what a good idea will be is that if we look at other games and maybe steal a few ideas but not copying we will change it abit but then send it on a email or sumthink then put it all together and if u are willing to help us or u no ppl that will do sumthink like that then we will love to count them or you to are team

if u are intersted in helping us plz say so and we will show you what we have so far so u no what we are aiming for!!!!!!

plz plz plz i dont like begging but we need help and good help and most of u all no good stuff and i no u all are busy but like at least 1 or 2 pages for ideas is better then noffin

I know the task is hard and that it will take a long time to make. i am currently training myself with a basic and an advanced javscript tutorial and soon will be starting a php tutorial. We only want a text based rpg game not a 3d one or ote like that. just like www.urban-rpg.com. If anybody could help us in making this game in anyway please contact me.

any help would be greatful

You are also going to need to use a databse to store the information, like users. Since your using PHP, MySQL is one of the logical choices but there are others.

Take a look at this thread regarding game programming:
