Call me negative, but if you can''t do this yet, then you will have a lot of trouble finishing your game. And I can almost guarantee that you will not finish it.

Sorry that this isn''t answering the question and it sounds like a personal attack, but my intention is just to tell you that you could learn VB better by doing some simpler stuff. After writing a few other games, you will learn what your limits are, and how to solve problems, then you will know when you are ready to start your MMORPG.

Trying is the first step towards failure.

I mean.. need to make it so when a user logs on.. it adds their username to the list.


Which part are you having trouble with, adding a string to an edit-box, detecting when someone logs in, figuring out how to let people log in (what''s a server?), or determining what thier name is?

Thats a very big question. Your server program has to be listening for open connections, waiting for a client to connect, then verify the clients username/password, then log him in to the database of online users, then add it to the list on the form. I am SURE if you cannot do this already you are in no shape to finish this online game you wish to make. Sorry.

dude, you gotta slow down. make some little vb apps then after a bit work up to bigger, more complicated apps. try making some games like pong or something in vb first.
