Anyone like to help with my new MMO titled "Cogs26"?
I am just... so.. inspired... by Growtopia, I'd like to make my own!
Just like Hammumu and Seth joined forces to make a game, anyone out there on the
huge internet like to make a game with me? I'd prefer it if you have some programming knowledge
and/or experience. I have a Skype and E-mail and can give them out on request.
If you would like to help just send me your application below!

Making multiplayer/single playyer games and MMO games are much much different.

In single/multiplayer games they require a fairly basic anti cheat which isnt too difficult to create.

But for mmo games its hell.
1. Server performance
2. Server performance under DDOS attacks
3. Credit validation
4. Large servers that can store nearly all data from a game file
5. Anti teleportation.
6. Anti injection.
7. Bizarre .dll files
8. Memory leaks (on the multiplayer games ive created it becomes an issue occasionally)
And economy/ player moderation.

Ill jump on if you at least have 12 years of experience.

Either I'm screwed or we start off small.

Start off small is preferably just a good single player game.

Okay. For a game engine I'm going with Game Maker. Prototypes will be using Growtopia's textures for testing only, but I am planning to make our own custom textures for the game release. I've heard there's a Game Maker extension that includes multiplayer and networking.

Depends which extension. Many will have a memory leak issue because they dont know what they are doing. (Memory leaks will let you play for about 5 minutes on the game before using up all your ram and crashing)

Are you using gamemaker studio or 8.1?
How much experience do you have?

You're trying to make an MMO with GM Studio?

Are you even fluent in GML?

If you really want to make a full-fledge MMO like Grow, learn C++ and server technology. They didn't make Growtopia with Game Maker, nonononononononoonononononononon. And Cogs26 is a heavily unattractive name.

I really can't offer anything, I would like to be part of something, but I am still learning and haven't grasped programming skills yet.

But I wish you good luck with your project. If you're going along the lines of massive online multiplayer game, I hope you do not turn it into Libertarian hell like Growtopia already is. Certainly when developing your first multiplayer game you should have strict limits on what the user can and cannot do and also the accounts being made unless no one can get hurt in the game.

Because an mmo game is made with c++ it doesnt mean you have to use c++. Mmo games have been made with gamemaker,

Marsdenisarobot, this project is yours. The engine you have made is a mix of youtube tutorials and drag and drop and I find to be unworkable.
The engine I have created is under the idea of you, but was done completely by myself.
