Hello everyone I am trying to program a game in php. I have purchased the domain and have a host server. I have a vast knoweledge of html, xml, and ccs. I have no clue where to start with php though. I have been going to a site called https://sourceforge.net/ and downloading games...and trying to upload them to my server. I cannot figure out what I am doing wrong...I am trying to make the game in php with mysql. I have been flowing the instructions for 5 games now and nothing is working. Does ANYONE know where I can go to get some code (THAT WORKS) for either a game that is already made that is now public sorce so I can use it, or a program that populates a game on my server for me? It has to have very detailed step by step directions...like I said I know my html...but have no knowledge of php or sql... PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE any help on where to find a source code or if anyone can give me some good instruction as to how to get started I'd very much appreciate it....thanks Joe

Look up a game called LEGEND OF THE GREEN DRAGON. It's a PHP based 'mmorpg' that is opened source. You can download it for free, and run it as is, or modify it for your own needs.

If their games aren't working chances are you haven't set something up correctly. Did you set up the database correctly? are you sure that their game is sucessfully connecting to your database, etc?

also, don't double post. =)

There's another free game, Black Nova Traders. Space-based text system, ported from an old, old BBS game, I believe. (As was LOTGD.)
