As you know, there are several awesome community members out there working on fun ways to introduce people to Reddcoin. For example look at @m3ndi3 and the work she does (and is developing). I’m also working on something which is far too ambitious for just one person to tackle but I’m going to do it anyways. I’ve had several people chime in, post help (thanks @iisurge) and I have connected to an indie gaming company about 20 miles from my house and 2 minutes from where I work who are also willing to help out.
So, here’s the update:
I have taught myself many aspects of the gaming engine of which I am using. I can now switch between different levels (scenes, screens, what-have-you), have got my database set up, the wallet ready to go, local web server set up, and am currently working on the login/signup scripts that generate a wallet address for each unique user. Thanks to @iisurge that should be a piece of cake. I was having difficulty getting PHP to work on my computer (and with such slow internet, it took forever to download files) but managed to get it working right. Security will be heightened on the scripts for pushing data to the database, as I want no SQL injections, cross site hacks, or anything of that sort.
After the login/signup page is complete, I’ll be testing the in-game transfer of RDD to other players. ~EDIT: Also testing for in-game purchases!~ Once that’s good, I’ll have to create many game objects and get them to smash each other. Then, FUN!
Cheers to Reddcoin, the Devs, and you wonderful users!
Update 1: After a few hours of coding, research, and talking to @iisurge , I have just about finished the login/registration page! WOOT! There’s a lot of crap behind the scenes that I never really knew about until I stated this project. Holy hash functions Batman! I just need to add some pretty reddcoin graphics to the reg and login pages and learn how to use the database to create a mailing list for those that want to be kept up to speed. After that, I’ll release the website. Just need to come up with a domain name and set it up…
