RPG online game

Hi, I’m new to the forum so first I introduce myself a bit :smiley:

I have a couple of years programming “for fun” and most I know is java,
but I really liked ruby the little that I’ve tried, I studying rails,
but I have curiosity about ruby itself for make a game, I’ve searched
google and found the Gosu libraries, Ray … etc

and I have a couple of questions: is there any way to play a game gosu
or ray done, online multiplayer? not only LANs

could create the game being web application? and could make desk and
connecting it in any way?

PS: I have not tried before, but I found RPG Maker VX for the web, seems
to make quick and easy games, and ruby scripts! it is worth using for
something?

greetings and thanks! :slight_smile:

Well, I’m not pretty sure but seems that you can’t create a “web
application” with Ruby/Gosu, yes LAN, and if you are skilled meaby you
can make it online multiplayer, but not web application.

RPGMaker VX do RPG games, you will be very limited in what you can do.
I’ve fully studied RPGMaker XP to see what can be done, and I’ve found
it very limited. RPGMaker is a template for one certain kind of game:
Final Fantasy Stile RPG, of course you can do some kind of mini-game
like “open one of this three vaults, if you are lucky you will find the
crazy magic bunny” but no more than that. The difference between VX and
XP is first: one is for XP the other for Vista, not pretty sure in which
other OS works; second: there’s many more resources to use for XP than
VX; thirst: XP use 1.8.6, VX use 1.9.1, so VX is fastest; fourth: this
is personal: I like the XP engine more than the VX engine, VX is more
limited than XP in what you can do(rarely but yes).

I recommend you Gosu, is the oldest framework to make games in Ruby,
and it’s pretty easy, just make the tutorial, see it with your own eyes.

The force be with you, have fun :slight_smile:

There’s also Chingu, built on top of Gosu.

thanks a lot for your responses, I will try something with gosu!

VX Ace has a cooler scripted engine (i mean the default scripts)

but i am in a team that try to make an free RPGMaker “clon”
