Development #3

Slow progress this week I’ve had multiple family events, a wedding and a rehearsal dinner distracting me this week, and getting the logistics involved for both. That combined with the fact that networking is a bit of a weak-point of mine, lead to a little bit of a drudge since last time. MYSQL woes Trying […]

Development #2

Got testing mostly worked out. Updates to smartfoxserver revealed a way to create NPCs serverside so I took some time meddling with that to get it to work with our purposes.

Development #1
