Hello every one, im very new to this. I would like to learn how to make my own "runescape", can any 1 help me out with this? if so that would be great. oh and a little question about my enviornmental variables. I have tried to change them to make a runescape private server work but it did not work. Can some one also tell me what to set my PATH and CLASSPATH as? this would be great.
A MMOG is a huge undertaking involving many disciplines and quite often multiple language. There are so many things to learn just for the game aspects(graphics, gameplay mechanisms, etc), then there is the networking, concurrency issues, graphics APIS's(DX and/or openGL),security, database management, and lots of other things.
If you are a beginner, then it is truly far outside your grasp. Take it step by step, first learning programming concepts(I would advise knowing C++ as well), then learn all the other elements. The good news is as you move along you can make tons of simpler games to reinforce what you are learning.

This is similar to yours and it *might* help to glance at it. But in short it says what David already said. My opinion is that if you are asking the question you are asking it's a bit out of scope for you at the moment. I know it is out of the scope for me. MMORG's are an enormous undertaking involving way too many different development aspects than any one person is capable of alone.
