    When mapping try to avoid big open spaces. Try to fill areas with detail like tufts of grass and flowers or whatever to make it feel a little more real and lived-in. Other than that, I echo what others have said; check out some mapping tutorials. Best of luck!
  2. Graphics Graphics Style vote

    Definitely second. I love the cartoony look but the second one is a lot more precise and prettier.

    UPDATE: I've been busy a lot so I've not had chance to come back here and see what's been said. I've updated the link and is now hosted on THIS forum so no outside links: http://www.ascensiongamedev.com/resources/filehost/03930f76e282a77fc23fd626e2b30e67.zip Thanks,

  5. Items not saving

    Hi, I was working on my game and noticed a big issue with the engine. I created a few items to test, saved them, logged into the client and tested them. All fine. I then shut down the server and restarted it. When I next logged into the editors/client all the item data was deleted. Any ideas why this is happening and how to solve it? Thanks, Tashology
  6. MySql connection

    Yeah sure. I'm using the MySQL.dll that comes with the MySQL download. I used it to write a C# application before and I've basically ported it over to VB.NET but you're more than welcome to take a look and see what's up. LoadBank: Dim connx = "Server=localhost;Database=tashdb;Uid=root;Pwd=%Pa55w0rd;" Dim connectx As MySqlConnection Try 'Create the connector connectx = New MySqlConnection(connx) 'Open the database connectx.Open() 'Create the command Dim cmdx As MySqlCommand = New MySqlCommand() Dim Commandx As MySqlCommand Commandx = connectx.CreateCommand() cmdx.Connection = connectx 'Get the user's ID from their name cmdx.CommandText = "Select * from mmoUsers where Username=@usern" cmdx.Parameters.AddWithValue("@usern", Player(Index).Login) cmdx.Connection = connectx Dim ready As MySqlDataReader ready = cmdx.ExecuteReader() While ready.Read() bankstring = ready.GetString("Bank") End While connectx.Close() Catch Throw End Try SaveBank Dim conn = "Server=localhost;Database=tashdb;Uid=root;Pwd=%Pa55w0rd;" Dim connect As MySqlConnection Try 'Create the connector connect = New MySqlConnection(conn) 'Open the database connect.Open() 'Create the command Dim cmd As MySqlCommand = New MySqlCommand() Dim Command As MySqlCommand Command = connect.CreateCommand() cmd.Connection = connect cmd.CommandText = "UPDATE mmoUsers SET Bank=@bank WHERE Username=@user" cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@user", Player(Index).Login) cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@bank", bankstring) cmd.ExecuteNonQuery() Catch Throw End Try Thanks, Tashology
  7. MySql connection

    Hello, I've been trying to remove the default saving and convert it all to saving through mysql. However whenever I try to create a new account, the client hangs for about 30 seconds and then the client disconnects. I'm using the mysql.dll, supplied with MySql. Any ideas why it's not working? Thanks, Tashology

    I'll go ahead and add it then! If it'll make things easier

    I didn't add a delete account button because you can just delete the folder or whatever BUT if you'd like, I can definitely add one
  10. Hey guys! I've been working on this for the past few days and it finally provides the simple, base mechanic that it is required to do! What is this? How do I configure it? Screenshots Download If you find any bugs, let me know and I'll do my best to patch it! Also, I'm tempted to make a console-only version (for those of you running the server on a command-line machine). Let me know if there's any interest in it! Thanks to @Damian666 for all the help I hope you all enjoy my editor and I hope that it comes in handy when you're making your ORPGs! ~ Natasha (Tashology)

  12. Showoff Portfolio Site

    It's a good website, I like the design (did you design it or is it a template?) If you're serious about getting professional work, you might want to put your full name and maybe a photo on there (I have done on my portfolio site, that I show employers when I go to job interviews) but other than that, it's really good.
  13. Reading and editing Account Files

    That's the issue, I did copy the loading from the server - it's just not loading which sucks.
  14. Reading and editing Account Files

    Ah right, I was trying to make it an undefined length so it could expand as necessary The issue is, for example, I'm reading in the Name value and it's returning nothing - like it's not reading in properly.
  15. Reading and editing Account Files

    Ok, well I've started working on it but I need some advice. So firstly, which file in data/accounts/USERNAME/ store the data for the user (the numbered files or the file with their character name)? I'm loading the file 1.bin, for example, and then I'm running a loop (like the server does) to load vitals and it just crashes.
