hey is it posible you think to create a "MYST" "RIVEN" type game using only HTML? noy the point and click navigation i know would work. the only problem i see is that the player would not have any way of carrying objects with him. for instance, if you needed a key to get in a door there is no way to carry a key from one side of the board to the other. anyone have any thoughts on this? might be cool to have a site based game like that.

yeah.. I suppose. Though I would definatly consider using javascript aswell. I bet it would be more annoying than programming a c/c++ game

You''d need to use javascript to handle the cookies which would store player info. Other than that, HTML would be enough to handle it. You''d just have your image as the table background and then use a stretched transparent 1x1 gif and table cells to make the hot spots. Anything you want to animate you''d just have to designate a table cell for and keep it seperate of the background image.

It''s actually pretty easy to do but kind of tedious. You''d want to keep your cookie functions in a seperate file that is then included in each of the HTML scene pages. You''d also want to do SSI to keep the look consistant between scenes without having to cut and paste a bunch of HTML.

there a ton off plug ins for 3d in browsers do a google on it.

I am wondering if blender are going to release a new version of thiers which would be cool as it''s free.

over ones are wild tangents 3d plugin, director 8.5(shockwave)

Java3d also.

But to be honest with you I would use php and a lot of images(and or animtions) to simulate the look of myst because lets face it the game is just so simple(gameplay).

Besides Java3D and Shockwave, there is also a little something called VRML (virtual reality modeling language) that one could use to implement a 3D environment in a web browser. I used this before and found it could easily be used to create 3D simulations in no time flat assuming a solid knowledge of 3D graphics.
