Hello, i am creating browser based game, and i am stuck at this crossroads. I cant decide which to use for implementing some game logic.

 

I have created leveling system in php and in javascript. But in all senses i dont know which one is better. My thoughts is that its better to use php, because all of the stats and users will be stored in DB, so my conclusion is that its better to use PHP var than changing JS var to PHP!

 

The thing is that i am not sure if i am right....Can i get some suggestions or tips for this?! 

 

THX :)

I don't have too much experience with either but both come with there cons to my understanding please correct me if I'm wrong.

Javascript :  -Client side, could be edited for an exploit.

PHP:  -Server side, Takes up additional cycles on the server so lots of users would be harder to handle.

          -Page reloading. 

 

Who do you choose?

so you are saying i should choose JS, just for simple reason not to wight to mush workload on servers, but leave the job to browsers? And this means, all i have to do with php is just get variables from javascript to store them in datebase!?

 

thx for reply!

Exactly and even maybe let JS store and use it's variables but have it compare the values every so often. If you buy something, get the price from the store and Bounty from a kill get a value from the server, just things that you don't want to be changed, because it could make it unfair, but when it comes to just checking how much money you have, just have a cached value on the JS, if they change it, it'll be reset when they try to use it but one less request to the server when viewing it.

I haven't heard anyone say this, so I'm going to chime in. 

 

PHP is an awful language for game development. It's okay if you've got one or two users, but the minute you start to scale it, the thing falls apart. I say this as someone who's been programming PHP code for over a decade now. 

 

That said, you can't really build a complicated online game that saves information to a database and remembers sessions without some kind of back end technology that does what PHP does, even if you write the interface entirely in Javascript. 

 

Two technologies you might want to consider looking at are Scala and Golang for the a back end. 

Both are very good under heavy workload. Scala is interesting because it offers a lot of compile options. Go is interesting because it rethinks the way programming works... and they're both good under load. 

 

In my experience, both had learning curves from the PHP or Javascript mindset, but it's worth it.
