Just a little MMORPG
September 25, 2007
Oh yes. A real community issue 🙂
I have make 1 client and 1 server.
in order to let people play to the game 24/24h, i’ve spend a little of money (10$ each month) to get a “professional” server. i’ve upload my gm server program on it, then i open it and first error : it was made with GM6 and a server have no grafic and sound card ! So i wasn’t able to run it.
After some few time, i get the idea to try to rewritte it for gm5 and surprised ! Yes ! That work ! So the server seem ok, then i tryed to run the client and great ! All work great.
So i diceded to close the page of my server and let run my gm program on it, with also the program calc.exe (=the calculator of windows). But when i close this page, this seems to close also the GM program : the client can’t connect. So i go on my server, and the GM program is close (it doesn’t run anymore) while the calc.exe program, is always running.
The calc.exe program is just to show you that my server doesn’t shutdown at any time.
The the problem is : when i exit the control page of a server, GM program is stop (while others exe can continu to run).
Someone now what’s wrong pleaze ?
In the futur, we will try to rewritte the server in C or other, but not now… And i think it’s interesting to understand why GM do that…

At least someone understands me 🙂
“The funny issue here is the phrase “So i’m making a little mmorpg.”
Have fun for hours and hours :
Blijbol, you obviously don’t understand the reason of the post. Phil was not poking fun at individuals but was poking fun at the word choice made “a little MMORPG” [MMORPG = MASSIVELY multiplayer online role playing game], and that was what he thought was humerous.
Also, I’m trying to read his post and comments and I cannot see in any place that he is saying that you are bad at online gaming! He said that HE didn’t create an online game, and that HE didn’t make the snake game that CyberTwister was making fun of.
CyberTwiser: I’ll repeat what I said, also to you. He isn’t poking fun at the problem, just for the fact that you said a little MMORPG, which is funny considering its contradictory.
Actually, an internal version of this game contains an almost finished online multiplayer feature, using mplay_ and correcting all message data with the included timestamp (to make delayed messages still useful):
As another piece of online work, I created an extensive online highscores engine for Game Maker:
However, this is not my point. My point is that it is completely useless to post this discussion on this blog. My previous comment was meant as a complaint against the authors of Game Maker Blog because of a stupid blog post.
Oh yes, I made that snake game (I didn’t).
I’ve never tried to make an online game, and I don’t intend to do so in the near future.
The funny issue here is the phrase “So i’m making a little mmorpg.”
NPT tried to answer your question. I didn’t. Obviously that somehow means I am the scum of the earth. As opposed to the other billions of people who also didn’t try to answer your question.
When i see some of your project like :
And when i see mine :
(website only in french : http://www.moonkiroe.com )
I understand that your opinion is really nothing…
Did ou even tryed to make an online game ? Probably not, if so, i would have understand my problem, wich is not a knowledge problem on the gml.
But someone seems clever than you :
It’s maybe more people visit his blog better than your…
well…everybody starts small…not much knowledge…but he can only improve.
Oh yes, a real blog post. (not)
