    Hi all. I know that with PHP you can do almost anything but I'm unsure of what exactly WITHIN PHP people use to make games. Such gaming websites as http://uranme.net are stricly PHP and it confuses me as to what they use. What php functions give people the flexibility of these sites?

    A vague question, I know. But I'm unsure of how to explain some features of these games. :bored:

    They're simply toying with databases. Simply you have a database with certain data in it. You then provide certain functions with manipulate inputs to modify that database - this is the part you want, I think. The third part are the forms and interfaces associated that allow for players to send orders that activate the functions. Quite simple as a whole, really.

    Good luck on that. One extra thing you might want to look at are cron jobs, which let you do various things based on a time pattern, such as running a PHP script every 15 minutes. Very useful in games.
