I want to make a browser-based campaign generator for my local gaming club. It is a static-turn based concept, I have a plan for tracking logistics, I just need a plan for generating the new map and putting it to the browser after every turn. The idea I have is to have information pulled from a database to show which icon goes on what map section. I know a minimal amount of C++ and a lot of PHP, I just don''t know how to generate the map. Any suggestions to get me started are very much in need! Thanks! Eric

You can do that with java-script.

"Teach Yourself Netscape Web Publishing in a Week" has everything you need to know. It was written for version Netscape 2 so everything in it works with IE and Netscape.

I used it to write a single HTML file that would randomly generate 4 different answers for up to 1000 different questions. The "correct" and "wrong" screens were in the same file. Kept score and everything.
