Should i use .dat or Mysql
Im just starting/learning to build a php based RPG game.
i have a model game that im looking at.
and they dont use Mysql at all.
all the account info. and etc etc are stored in .dat files.
im wondering. should i follow what they did there and just store stuff on the .dat file
or should i use Mysql to store info.
what would be a a better way to deal with 100+ user game (just an example)?
If it's data you expect to change relatively often, that you'll want to do searches and sorts on, and/or which may grow a lot in the future, then I would recommend a database solution. Whether you want to use MySQL, Postgres, SQLite, or some other DBMS is another question (and harder to answer ).
