Advice 1: How to create an online game

In some countries, such as South Korea for example, online games have become almost a national sport. No less popular are in Europe, USA and our country, and the creators of the hits of this rapidly growing sector become millionaires in a matter of months.



Naturally, many who are faced with the world of online gaming as a player or as a budding entrepreneur, the question arises — how to make online game?



It really is quite simple.



You first need to determine the type of the game. All online games are divided into several very different from each other types:



RPG (Role-Playing Game, role-playing game), or rather MMORPG (Massively Multyplaying Online Role-Playing Game – massively multiplayer online role-playing game) role – playing games like World of Warcraft or Lineage. The player will choose a role (hence the name) to become an Orc or a dwarf, warrior or magician etc., and then to join in the tumultuous life of the game world.



This game consists of two main parts. The server part — is, in fact, the game world, but essentially it is a database, which stores information about players, their skills and abilities ("stats"), as well as various items and objects in the game world. The client part is a program that plays on your computer in order to see the game world and your character, and commit any action in it. The main task of the client to communicate with the server (to retrieve data about the objects and creatures around the player character in each moment of time, and transmit to the server information about the player's actions), and display data received from a server in the form of attractive graphics, usually three-dimensional.



For programming both the client and especially the server part, you need a great knowledge and good experience actually programming, database creation, skills, 3D design, and, of course, imagination, which will help to create a complex and interesting game world. In addition, to make a modern game alone is simply impossible. Need a team of professionals.



There are designers of online games can greatly simplify the task to a novice. Of a system similar to Realm Crafter Professional 2.40, allow you to create an online game without programming as such. All the hard work is already done for you, you only need to perform the creative part is actually, to invent a game. However, this is the most difficult part.

They are much simpler — in fact, it's just a set of html pages linked to as well as any website.

Instruction

So first of all, you need to think through your idea. Rate the games market, which is now represented. Do not examine it with the goal of cloning existing projects, make a list of pros and cons of each game, including a brief description of focus, fantasy, economic, military or post-apocalyptic. The more games you will be able to see, the better you will be aware what exactly is lacking in the market right now.
2
Once you have finished the idea, write an example scenario of the balance of forces.

Advice 4: How to create an online game

In their creation found many artists, animators, writers and programmers. Some popular onlinegames began with small projects that are feasible for a novice developer working in the initial phase alone.
Instruction
1
Soberly evaluate their knowledge and capabilities. You will need knowledge of at least one programming language. It also requires the understanding of technologies of creation of computer games, for example, you need to understand what is the event queue, multithreading, user interface, client-server and know at least the basics of computer graphics. You will also need at least one reliable server for the head part of the game. It needs to be well configured, ready to burst load, is safe and tested. Online game, unlike the conventional one, requires a higher quality of service. No one player is not gonna like it when at the crucial moment the server begins to restart due to a failure or becomes unavailable for several hours due to a DDoS attack. To successfully meet all the requirements of one person is almost beyond the power. So you need a willingness to teamwork and the ability to collect it.
2
Sketch the design that you can bring to life. The creation of good computer games is a very time consuming process, which involved a lot of good professionals in their field. Do not try to just outrun them, otherwise you just won't be able to bring a game to the end.
3
Keep in mind that modern technology does not allow to implement many of the technologies of realism. Many of the projects is limited to hardware requirements, not a lack of ideas or expertise. Additional restrictions imposed the need to support simultaneous game a large number of players, that when the big functionality will require powerful and expensive servers, the requirements for which are very high. Therefore, in the initial stages, it is important not to get maximum detail graphics and gameplay.
4
First, create the smallest possible, but fully working model of onlinegames, which you can extend. It should consist of a simple complex client-server running on a single computer, and ensure that: the simple model of the playing space; the creation, start the game and save state of the character; ability to communicate; the ability to move and ability to perform actions.
5
Develop a Protocol of interaction between client and server over the network. A single standard in data transmission greatly simplifies the design, but to standardize all tasks are often inefficient and leads to the generation of large amounts of unnecessary traffic. Try to find a balance between the General standard and volume of traffic. Also in this step, work through the software part of the server. Decide with multithreading and implementation of customer interaction across the network.
6
Bring the client part that will work on the player's computer. At this stage it is important to lay the extensible interface of the game, in the future, you might painless to change, and also to look into the software part graphics.

Also the server part of the game may be subject to a DDoS attack. For example, the mass registration of players a special script and their simultaneous connection to the game. This attack will quickly exhaust the server resources and require quick decision-making during his work. In order not to create inconvenience to the players, the mechanisms for such situations must be considered in advance.
