Bought MMO Source Code
well, i'm new to the program and wanted to mess around with the MMO source code i bought. I'm a little confused as to how I'm suppose to get this to work (as in just set up for editing and such), i've read the directions and such and was wondering if anyone else could give a more detailed explanation or link to help me out!

'Installation:
Extract the Game Data and Sources to the same folder on your disk
Copy the "engine.pak" file from "SDK\Data" to "Esenthel MMO\Data"
Copy all Physx Dll's from "SDK\Installation\PhysX" to "Esenthel MMO\Bin"
Run the SDK Editor, change Data Path to "Esenthel MMO\Data", load and rebuild the worlds
Run the Visual Studio Project and recompile the codes'
^thats the default directions....obviously not stupid-proof, as i can't get it all to work!
FIRST POST BE NICE!
Thanks in advance <3

RE: Bought MMO Source Code
Hi zasfarr, welcome to the forums. I know how tough it is to get started on something new. Starting on a new game engine is oftentimes even more challenging. Starting with something simple, have you downloaded the SDK and have gotten any of the demo (the free ones from the Store) to work yet?

RE: Bought MMO Source Code
I've downloaded the SDK and made a few maps with the demo character and played around with it a bit. Its just putting the files from the purchased MMO source code into my files and having it work.....I guess i just need a more detailed description of the direction that are given.

I'm a young flash programmer and have always dreamed of making an MMo or a MOBA type of game. Anyhooo...if you or anyone could help i'd really appreciate it!

RE: Bought MMO Source Code
Thank you so much for getting back to me! grin
I am pretty much having trouble with the last 2 steps honestly.
>Run the SDK Editor, change Data Path to "Esenthel MMO\Data", load and rebuild the worlds
>Run the Visual Studio Project and recompile the codes'
When i change the data path...all my textures go away and such >.< and rebuilding doesn't seem to do much to my now pale world. I have Visual Studio....but lack the knowledge on how to exactly 'recompile the codes'. Thanks so much Esenthel and Aceio, it means a lot to get feedback and some help! When i become more familiar with the program and such, i'll be sure to spread this love around to others who need help! smile

I'm off work. I'm download the source now.

Ok, I was able to get it to work. I am fairly new to programing. I am going to post up a crud video for you to see how I did it.

No problem. I had to redo the video like 3 times. I ran into a really funny error in the middle of the second video.

No problem. I have weird hours too. I work full time. Go to school full time so I don't get to check the forums as much as I would like.

It's saying it can't find the header files for the engine. Look here and make sure you have them in this folder structure. If you are still having issues can you take a screen shot for your folder structure??

RE: Bought MMO Source Code
Can you try updating your Esenthel engine? Under tools use Autoupdate.exe
