I dont know Runescape too much.

but it's most likely made with C/C++ or their own language (language made with C/C++ prolly)

runescape is written with Java, not C/C++. If you wanted to make an online (web browser) game like runescape then learn java, but if you only want to make a clone of it (like an offline version) then you should learn C/C++.

The thing you need to understand about prgramming is that it takes practice before you can jump right into a project like that - start with the basics - do a few text based programs - get GOOD at them, theen start advancing your knowledge with ever-more challenging programs until you work your way up to games like runescape. This is not to say that it cannot be done, but that your code will be much more likely to be patchy and inefficient (and in programming, efficiency is KEY).

Here are some links to help you get started:

http://www.cplusplus.com/ - for your cplusplus needs
http://java.sun.com - for your java needs (there's a tutorial SOMEWHERE in there)
http://www.devshed.com - a STRONG programming and development community that could likely better assist you with programming - however, I'm sure anyone here would be happy to

You could also go to your local bookstore or library and find a wealth of information about programming - good luck!

Runescape would be in incredibly difficult project for even a development TEAM. Much less one person. I agree, Java is the language to go with. In addition, they more than likely use Java Server Pages(JSP) to govern the user/database input/output querys. In addition to programming, you'd also need to create the maps, models/sprites, and sounds.

If you want to learn how to create games, try using the Half-Life SDK. Its for the original version, its not that hard to learn(being and C++ based language but very striped down), and the engine is already included. You can download it here. If you want more information, go to Valve's developers website at The Collective.

Granted, this ALSO may be a little complex for a new programmer, its a good start. You can edit the files as you please(make sure you use the full version) and see the end result.

I know you can do it in time. I've made 3 Half-Life 2 mods on my own in addition to helping on 4 others. The Source SDK is also a good place to start if you have Half-Life 2

It took me 10 minutes to decipher what bublu said. This isn't a cheat site. They exploit the game to make themselves better because they won't sit down and make themselves better at the game the good old fashioned way.

Don't be a cheater, be a gamer. Learn to play the game better. Hackers and cheaters ALWAYS get their own. Like the Standby glitch on Halo 2, everyone who used it is now banned from XBL.

(Does this please you ggordie?)

Dual, dual-core AMD Operton 400's

Used RedHat 9, hated it. It slowed my performance even. Yes it was set up right, my uncle who is an IT professional set it up.

XP is great operating system despite what everyone thinks. Especially 64-bit edition. I have custom 64 bit applications for it.

If XP wasn't a great operating, then why does Saint Anthony hospital of Oklahoma City use it to control one of the most advanced tumor removal toosl, the Cyberknife Synchony? If it works for them, its sure as whatever good enough for me.

Besides, XP works with all of Google's API's. Down with Microsoft, Linux, and Mac, up with Google.

Linux doesn't get the most out of your machine. It just limits it. I used Linux. Hated it. Too limited. In my opinion. Programs that are free/Open-source are crap. Good programs are made when the programmers are being rewarded for their work. Its like mowing the lawn and getting no allowance. Firefox is the only exception to this rule. Well and maybe Ubuntu Linux. Thats also why websites have ads. Because if the site is well made then it becomes popular and the webmaster benifits from the company supplying the ads. People do good work for money. Bottom line. Well except Microsoft. Windows could be so much better. But, it is worth the money. So don't be cheap and give me none of that.



SORRY FOR THE BLOCK OF TEXT.
