Please don't swear, even with obvious vowels hashed out. It is against the forum rules.

You're making this far harder for yourself than is necessary. You don't need to do that for a loooooooong time, as you won't be taking on big numbers of users until at least 2-3 months after even publishing your game. It's nothing against your skill in MMO design, it's just a fact of life.

But clearly you want to do it, so I'll try and help you. I personally didn't do this, though the Wiki does say that it's necessary. Not sure how I managed that, but oh well.....

What part of the SQL database creation section do you not understand?

First, I'm sorry I swore, I didn't know it was against the forum rules, even without the vowels. I can't find MySQL Derver 4.1.
When I open the C:/Multiverse, I can choose between multiverse and mysql-connector-java-3.1.14 . Which should I choose? I can't cind server 4.1 nor command line center

There's a thread about a bug in the mySQL commandline client in the forum here............I know this because I created the thread*grins*

Oh and the mySQL client "should" be in the windows program menu under mySQL-->mySQL server-->mySQL commandline client

Yup.........it points to a location where my.ini isn't.
I fixed mine by finding my.ini and then adding that to the properties of the menu item.

The4 my.ini file was located at
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Apllication Data\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.5\my.ini

ok, it's getting more and more frustrating. How can I find mine? My version is 5.5.2. I simply can't find anything that says "server" or "command". :-(

I'm on Windows 7, and the MySQL installation is at:

Code:

Start > All Programs > MySQL > MySQL Server 5.5 >  MySQL Server 5.5 Command Line Client


If you still can't find it:

In that case, download it again. It's clearly been installed in the wrong place, or it hasn't been installed at all...

Make sure you download the correct 'bit' too (32-but or 64-bit).

The MSI file is just an install file, like an .exe
I would download the MSI, only because it saves you unzipping the install files later on. Much quicker Arrow

HTTP. It'll download like a normal file.

FTP means you'll have to set up a special connection to their server, which means downloading extra software (depends on your requirements).

Just do the HTTP one, basically Razz

I haven't seen a browser in the last decade that won't handle an FTP connection............as FTP://ftp.ibiblio.org/<directory path> is a valid URL........and the FTP tells the browser to use port 21 as the control port instead of port 80, and to try making an anonymous ftp connection, using "anonymous" as a username, and your default email address as a password.

In fact I actually prefer using ftp over http, as ftp, being a much older protocol implementation, merely opens a "pipe", and dumps the whatever in, just as fast as it can, while http is usually throttled to some extant or another, so as to allow the maximum numbers of users, even if each receives their whatever slower.

When I open the command line window (finnaly I have it :-), it just opens and closes. Why? There was an error setting up the settings, It was unresponsive. I'll try reinstalling.

I never knew you could do that...
That explains why sites sometimes offer FTP downloads!

Yeah.........you can visually browse most modern ftp sites as well.

makes it a LOT easier than the old "grab the file list, read it, and then go after your file by name at the terminal".

Of course FTP sites that don't offer anonymous access are a different story, as are some of the oddball ftp deamons, like the tiny ftp deamon that can be built into busybox.........but then again by the same token, one can "layer" the http and FTP file systems as well when using those sort of speciality deamons, thus allowing both http and ftp access to the same directory structure.

I know this because I did it*grins*

It'd probably help if you could point out which things aren't running

That still doesn't help....

Are there any servers that consistently don't run, or is it always random?


On a side-note, I think it would be a very good idea if you get someone to join you, who has experience with this kind of thing. That way, you can share the workload. Just go onto any game programming forums, and look around for someone who would be willing to help out (for free, unless you can pay them, which will get the job done much quicker!)
