    I know, I meant using MySQL to keep up the system...

    That's a case study, not a tutorial. I don't think it will help much.

    I think it will be fine reading this, how about you?

    Neither do I, but even I know that giving out all your passwords is a bad idea. Try finding a network game programming tutorial; you'll get a lot further once you have the basics of networking down :)

    Alright. Anyway, I just had a look at your MySQL code in this thread, and... let's just say there's a huge, huge flaw. You should never store passwords on a server unencrypted, and whatever you do, never ever send a user the entire freaking password list. I think you can figure out why yourself.

    Oh wow, I didn't even notice your VM, anyways atleast you got it right about my mystery gift it was made from scratch to be a better-in-features mystery gift system. I used pbDownloadToString because it was the only download method at the time....

    Nice Mystery Gift script. I'd like to make some comments:
    Firstly, what's the reason for the '+ 1 - 1' after each variable assignment? Adding one then subtracting one has no effect.
    Secondly, if I remember how Pokémon Essentials works, setting a gift to be shiny won't actually do so. How are you going to fix this?

    Nice work otherwise. It's a shame you had to go and steal the trading scripts from Pokémon Raptor - I'm sure that if O.G. Duke or Wichu wanted their scripts to be public, they'd have posted the scripts themselves. I don't think anyone would mind if you decompiled their scripts for educational purposes - I assume your Mystery Gift script is inspired by Raptor's, right?

    Anyway, are you going to try your hand at making your own trading script? I bet loads of developers would appreciate it, and you'd get a lot of experience doing so.
