requesting help!!!


Sorry if this is in the wrong spot but I need help! I'm planning on making a game but I have a few questions that needs to be answer.
1) What computer language would be best for making games(mmorpg)
2) Can it be use to make a multi-player game?
3) Is it free?
4) Can a link for the programs and some links on learning it be provided
5) Can a link on including multi-player be provided?
6) Optional! Do you require anything to run an online (mmorpg)?

This sooner the better if I can get these question answer!

Thank you very much!

Any your comftable with but i would have thought C++ as it has good 3D support and plenty of network tools. check out SDL and openGL libs for good start in games programing.

again if you have experince of gane programing in another language try that

most languages can but C++ has good network support

most mmorpgs (actually all the ones ive herd of) follow a client server system (although a P2P system would be very interesting) This may be your key expence other than time

some links
http://www.libsdl.org/ the SDL website includes links to tutorials on how to use.

www.opengl.org the openGL website includes some guides for use

http://gcc.gnu.org/ website for gcc (which includes g++ C++ compiler)

http://www.blender.org/ blender is a 3d modeling program that you could use to make character and terrain models

All these programs/libaries are free and run under linux and windows (although you will have to compile programs sepratly to get them to work on each system).

mmorpgs are complex programs requiring a good knowledge of both games development and networking maybe try a few smaler projects before tackling this one (maybe some that use skill directly portable to your mmo)

Any software project requires lots of planning. get a good idea of how things will work before jumping straight into such a large project
