  1. Ohhh I see! Thank you very much for the clarification. And yes I'm aware of the legal aspects of private servers, but given that the game shut down and that the developers team disbanded I'm positive there's no harm in doing a small server just to hang with friends.
  2. Hello everyone! I finally mustered the balls to come here and ask for your advice. To simply put it, my friend and I would like to emulate, or make a small private server of, this pretty old MMO. We've managed to obtain the database of said MMO, even though it's not the most recent version. The issue is.. both of us are what you'd call non-programmers, so we have no idea where we should start. Having the database we've used SQL Server to take a look at it, but that's as far as we go. He says we need somone who's familiar with c# & sql programming languages to help us set this up, skills that none of us have. All we want is to put a small server up and running so that the two of us and a couple other friends can play together, kind of like minecraft. We'd like to find people to help us set this up, or to at least guide us on what we have to do so we can hire some programmers. So I'd like to ask: Since we have the database and (I think) don't need reverse engineering, what are the next steps to make it work and have the server go live? What are the programms that we need to use for said steps? What kind of skills should we look for in the people we'd hire to set the server up? I'm sorry if this sounds halfassed but I really appreciate any advice you'd have to offer. Thank you in advance!
