the hud needs to be stored locally... u shouldn't have it serverside.

make a basic GUI first, with buttons, labels etc, and things will naturally flow from there.. :)

peace.

It is'nt on a server yet, and the Idea is that at a certain time of a day, everyone with this game goes to the server's IP address.
P.S I don't know what a gui is and I'm quite new with darkbasic, but thanx anyways,

a GUI is a "Graphical User Interface"

Meaning all the pretty pictures that you're using to interact with your program.

I've never actually made a HUD, like those in FPS games, but I would expect they're just a single/group of images with transparent areas so you can see the rest of the game, and you call them LAST when drawing your graphics.

I suggest you play with something a LOT simpler than something that involves a HUD.

things like, "Hey, I need help,... ah, want to just do all this work for me" usually doesn't go over very well, I suggest you don't.

now, "Can someone help me and guide me in learning to program in (Insert programing language name)" that might work nicely, if you get lucky.
