I have been working on my vbGORE engine for quite a while now, and have finally got to the point where I am comfortable releasing the first version. A list of all the features can be found here and all the screenshots here.
vbGORE is an Online RPG engine designed for performance and optimization rather then ease-of-use like most all the ORPG engines out in Visual Basic. It includes many things you will not find in most all other VB ORPG engines such as byte array packet sending/handling with Winsock API, complete DirectX 8 interface, in-game mailing and much more. This project is far from finished, but is far enough to do most of the basic to intermediate Online RPG functions such as walk, talk, cast spells, fight NPCs, buy/equipt items, raise stats, etc.
