RE: visual studio question!
You launch every project by the .sln file as it preserves the projects settings,etc.

You can use the dll launcher as your base, but you can also make a copy of the tutorials folder EsenthelEngineSDK\Tutorials and try out all the examples, and study everyone of them first. Just run the included sln file found in the root of the tutorials folder and just replace the included cpp file with other examples, like the one here for your mmorpg:

Tutorials\Source\Advanced\4 - Demos, Game Basics\Game Basics\Pathfind.cpp

You should also take a look at the wiki, it contains a lot of stuff on how to get started.

Best of luck to you smile

Select Image tab, then choose compression type and drag and drop image which you want convert.

Correct me if I'm wrong. You will try to make a MMORPG that is the hardest kind of games you can do and you do not even know how to open Visual Studio / Create a project? I'm not rude in any way, I just wonder what you're thinking really. Try to be little more realistic, Try make a 3D Pong game. And see if you can do that first.

I think 2D pong is better to start with ^^

Yes well try 2D Pong first, Then 3Dsmile But of course you can start with your "MMORPG" even though if you do not finish it you will still learn a lot during the trip.

Why all want to make a mmorpg? It's not funny as people think and it's a fucking huge work.

RE: visual studio question!
Well, playing MMORPG is fun and designing own world sounds nice for begginers... Most of people think, that they can draw some map, come up with a few monsters, add the simple story and the game is 90% complete smile Especially when they see some intuitive tools like World Editor or Mesh Editor (like in Esenthel). It can look fun, just Click&Play...

But REAL game designing and programming is a very hard and thankless job...

So, as it was said... Get on earth and start with 2D Pong... Or just with simple "Hello world" in console...

Even before making 2D pong, I would advice him to simply read the docs for Esenthel.. smile
