How would one go about creating a private game server? I see so many tutorials online but they don't tell you how to create one from scratch so it will work for any online MMO. Can someone explain how?

Depends on the game.
Usually you edit the game's connection so it connects to your database instead of the official one.
This requires a knowledge of that game's coding language, and a type of database like mysql.

There is a lot left unmentioned in various tutorials because the starting point differs per-game.

The main first step would be research.
- Learning how the game connects to the server. (UDP/TCP, etc.)
- Learning what type(s) of encryption (if any) the game uses.
- Decoding the packet flow and mapping out packets.
- Learning how the game reads and manages its game data.
- Determining what data is known and what isn't. (Based on client data.)

Structuring things together afterward would be next. Such as working on a test server to test the connection process of the game, account handling, and so on.

It really depends on the game you are working on though, things can have more in depth requirements on the research part before touching any bit of coding.

That being said, knowledge in programming and networking will come into play later on down the road as well when developing the actual server.

if you want MMO's, then google how to make an RSPS from scratch.

Will take a month, but hey, it might be worth it.

Alright wait for it ..




Simply download an Eclipse evolution game, then download the engine, then add game data to the engine, Change the games connecting IP to your IP, run the game. Tried and verified.
