I play several online games and what I want to be able to do is take all of my statistics in a particular game and upload them to a database to have them compare to other users. I would like to create my client using VB and upload all of the statistics to a MySQL database. Once I get all the stuff up to the database I should have no problem... maybe. *grin*
What I want to know is how to get the statistics from the game onto my client and upload it to a MySQL server. I take it this is done by getting information via memory locations; however, I do not know how to get these locations. I know that at some point or another I'll need to learn how to CRC hash to make sure people aren't playing with packets but I'm just trying to take this one step at a time.
Is there an easy way to go about doing this or what skills will I need to learn to do it? Thanks for the help.
