I need some tutorial
I need to know where a complete tutorial is to do since the world, to put objects, to be able to interact with them, that some of them are enemy, to put weapon and armors that can be equipped, etc. For that I am new and I would be charmed with creating a MMO winkwinkwink

RE: I need some tutorial
http://www.esenthel.com/?id=tools Click on a tool, video tutorials are in the bottom left.
Check the Documentation file in your EsenthelEngineSDK folder.
Learn the programming tutorials in the 'source' folder.

And this is just for Esenthel.. if you're new (which you say you are), you can use training on general C++ programming, client/server, ..

Also, if you start on an MMO, I give you a 100% fail-rate. Make something simpler first; there's a reason (a bunch of reasons, actually) why an MMO is so hard to make.

RE: I need some tutorial
There are 2 sides (for me) in creating a game (let's say: MMO). Which is "Programming" and "Designing".

To be able to learn how to program, there is a few good books about it:
Frank Luna, 2004, C++ Programming for Games Module I & Module 2
Bruno Miguel Teixeira de Sousa, 2004, Game Programming All in One.
And some websites like cplusplus.com which has a great introduction to C++ programming!

Whereas after you can start with "Programming Multiplayer Games" by Andrew Mulholland and Teijo Hakala (2004). These introduce windows programming, PhP, MySQL, and some basic HTML.

After being 5000 pages further in reading how to program, there is also the design aspect, which includes, but is not limited to: Character design, level design, quest design, story writing, game architecture, lighting and rendering.
Here lies another ±15.000 pages of books.

Those are pages, not books!!! grin
After, you just search for some tutorials on the internet to do really specific things.

Once you read a lot of things and at the same time get familiar with Esenthel, you could buy the personal license, which gives you acces to a standard MMO source code in this engine, as to other things that you might need for an MMO such as paypal payments.

RE: I need some tutorial
This is something i've never figured out. It's how to name an object in the world and link it with code so when click on it something happens. Never seen a tutorial for this either.

Man, it's always that semicolon...

Tutorial: Objects under cursor + ERPG 2 source code.

Assuming that you have items with names setup already... RPG 2 code emits sounds for the item as follows, and ofcourse can be adapted for multiple uses, as for example when you click on the item with the specific name, play a certain animation:

if(Contains(item.name,"namehere"))emitSound("soundhere");

RE: I need some tutorial
Would something like this work?
if(Contains(item.name,"Shop"))emitSound("laugh.mp3"){
Guishop = show;

}

Don't have time to test it quite yet..

RE: I need some tutorial
That would work yes only it would be

Code:
if(Contains(item.name,"Shop")){
  emitSound("laugh.mp3");
  Guishop = show;
}
or
Code:
if(Compare(item.name,"Shop")){
  emitSound("laugh.mp3");
  Guishop = show;
}

RE: I need some tutorial
I would need to define Item, And i don't know what to define it too. So that doesn't work

Nvm that. So i'm currently using,

Namespace Game;
And now the problem is, Game::Item doesn't have a member "Name"
So, Game::Item::Name = not working pfft..

Man, it's always that semicolon...

RE: I need some tutorial
Well, you need to read parameters from EE .obj file then on an extended class from item in item::create you need to define and set Str name etc.
