Re: Is there a program that will let me create text adventures? Or is there one for MUDS?

I like these ideas. It's the best wayh to write a program. Don't just sit down, 
and say. ok. I want a text adventure... Once upon a time." then your story will 
die.
I don't recommend much of 2-3 though, because you'll start copying and pasting, 
all good, and poof. caboom, it died. Why? because you didn't copy and paste 
everything from 10 other files, which requires more from 10 more files. etc.
Thanks,

  I have two suggestions for you Alex, 

  1-1. you can just sit down and start brainstorming on what your game(s) will 
take to operate the way you want, just make a note pad document, if your fairly 
good, as you write things out you will think of other things that are needed to 
make it all work. 

  1-2. then start a flow chart of sorts, a blow by blow list of the actual way 
it's to work, "I enter this room, I get the description of the room and what is 
in it, I type in >>> to do this in the room, then I type in yyy to..." so on 
and so forth, this will both make it clearer what you need the game to be able 
to do, and you will think of things that you didn't get the first time around 
(the first list above).  

  1-3. then you start coding the game, if you don't know how to do a "while 
loop" or can't figure out the method of retrieving an item stored in the 
database for the program, then you come here and ask a specific question about 
that problem.   and someone out here will do there best to help you.  

  or you can: 

  2-1. go find a free source game, like black nova traders.  
  2-2. take it apart, study how they did there version of the assorted things 
and how the modules all interconnect. 
  then 2-3. start rewriting the code you have there to suit your needs (the 
lazy programmers method), or use the knowledge to write up your own modules 
that do it the way you want it to (the better programmer route). 

  when your done with either of these, you will have from half an idea to the 
whole idea of how to write such a game.   and can continue on to write others 
if your still inclined to. 

  laters,

      uh. a mud would be best. for typing things in. I really don't see people 
typing in forms over and over.
      As for php and mysql, there is some docs on it in the php help files.

        Alright maybee i didn't think about what i said. Words i meant the old 
text adventures and i want to create text adventures and little web games but 
am still trying to figure out how i can make php interact with a mysql db. So 
those are the 2 things i want to do text games like those old games from the 
80s where you type in what to do, and webgames where you navigate with links.
        Thanks,
        Alex

          navigate with words. does this mean like... links?
          This won't be that hard to do. If you know php, like you told me...
          Anyway, use MYSql to store the user's info.
          Then you can create modules and etc for each town, store, or w/e. As 
long as you build a pluggable module system.

          Thanks,

            Well an online game where you create a player and go through 
adventures and fight other players. Written in php or a text adventure where 
you read a description of where you are and you navigate with words.

              alix. I'm not going to visit those. I've handed you docs 
tutorials and now a copy of winmoo with a database. Why don't you just tell us 
what you want. I've got a ton of stuff to do rather than sit around going to 
websites trying to figure out what it is that you want.
              If you want to be a programmer, something you need to learn is 
how to be more eloquent with your request.
              You will more than likely get help, but it saves you and us some 
time as well as much irritation and frustration if you can learn to tell us 
exactly what it is that you want to do.
              Thanks,

                        I want an easy one (maybee one that actually writes the 
code for me and all i have to do is use a code editer thing like audiogame 
maker or topspead track creater.

                          There is one you can look up under google. just type 
in mud creater its a prety neet thing to play around with. It lets you build a 
complete game but not sure the ruels on hwo to get it on line.
