How to create a gaming platform in vb.net ? (Where to start ?)

Posted 16 January 2013 - 06:47 AM

Hello programmers, I want to know where to start if I want to create a gaming platform.
With the link below you can download a gaming platform called Ranked Gaming Client.
http://cdn.rankedgam.../client/RGC.zip
It's a tiny platform on which users sign up, they Press a 'Sign' button and they are automatically added to a list. When the list reaches 10 players, a bot hosts a game and the game starts.

RGC utilizes an IRC-like chat (I would also like to know where to begin if I want to create a simple IRC chat).

I just need to know where to start. Anything would be helpful (a website, a project, source code....)

Thank you.

@rob2k9 - instead of links how about just your search criteria. 'Magic words' and what not.

Hello

Creating a framework/engine involves quite a bit of work. In fact, a so called engine is just a big library with custom methods that do (in this case) game related things such as displaying a graphical object, or doing network stuff. It can go from methods that get the computer name, to methods that process a login request. This is a broad subject, I suggest that you write down what it is exactly that you want your game engine to do. As you create each method inside that library, it will slowly grow into an engine.

I hope I have helped you enough.

Best regards :)
