Hey all, I was wondering how to make a online game, Like where can I make one. Could someone lend a hand out. It's just going to be a online dinosaur game like the google one


pert

Do you plan to use an Arduino for some part of this project?

cole101

By Arduino, do you mean Arduino board, or the Arduino IDE for the code checking, I'll be using Arduino IDE for the coding yes @pert

Good point! It is confusing that we use the term "Arduino" to refer to so many different things. I usually try to be more specific in my writing and actually had noticed that I left "board" off after posting that, but I didn't bother to edit it.

I was referring to an Arduino board. The Arduino IDE is only appropriate to use when writing code for an Arduino board. And when I say "Arduino board", I include all the 3rd party boards, which include bare chips. However, if you're writing code to run on a computer (which could be your own, or a server on the Internet), the Arduino IDE is not at all appropriate. It's likely you would not even want to use the C++ programming language the Arduino language is based on.

This forum is also not the best place to ask for assistance with this sort of project. I've moved this topic to the "General Discussion" board, where non-Arduino topics are welcome, and you may well get some help from the super smart forum members, but it's just not a subject we specialize in here.

Fortunately, there are a huge amount of free resources available on the Internet to help you with this project, so I'm sure you'll have no problem getting the information you need.

Well, I'll be looking to make one based on Arduino, or using Arduino's boards, so yes I will be using an Arduino board!!

But is it possible to make a Dino online game using Arduino boards?

TheUNOGuy

If you know a little python, I guess so...Maybe this also helps you?
It's better if you check the internet  ( your friend ) before posting..! :D

I don't know anything about this dino game, but you certainly could use an Arduino board as a web server to make a game you wrote as an Arduino sketch available for play via the Internet.

You will need a way to connect your Arduino board to the network. That could be a board that has a built-in WiFi radio, such as the Arduino Nano 33 IoT, Arduino MKR WiFi 1010, ESP8266, ESP32, etc. Or you could put an Ethernet shield (example) or module on an Arduino board and then connect it to the network with an Ethernet cable.

I don't understand why you would want to make an online game using an Arduino board.

I don't play computer games but imagine that an online game needs a powerful webserver that is permanently connected to the internet and which can be accessed by many users at the same time. I don't think any of the Arduino boards or boards like the ESP32 would have the necessary performance.

...R

Two or three hours spent thinking and reading documentation solves most programming problems.

Easy. Use interpreted languages... ;)

What is that referring to?

It seems to have popped up out of nowhere.

pert asked me on if I was going to use a Arduino board to make a online game. I don't really want to so I was just asking if it's possible. My question was, what should I use to make an online game?
I might use a board because it's the only way i know right now

Is it possible to use Visual Studio's as the platform to make the game?

Sorry for not being clear...I was trying to say that instead of using an Arduino board which Robin said in Reply #8 would not meet the requirements of a fully powered online game, it could easily be run by interpreted languages making a better server than what is made by Arduino...
