    Ok heres how you make a online rpg i will list this in steps
    Lern Visual Basic (doesnt take long (month or so))
    Lern how to use the WINSOCK API (this is for data transmission)
    Lern how to use BITBLT and TRANSPARENT BLT
    Create a basic TILE Map editor
    Create a basic "ENGINE" to load maps and tilesets
    then after you have player drawing up use winsock to send a "packet"(data) to your server program then have the server interpret that paket and say

    If IncomingPacket = "PlayerMovement" then
    Beam this packet to everyone in the game
    End if

    Something like that just says if player 1 moves show everyone in the game that player 1 has moved

    Simple as that all up it will take you about 3 months to lern all the basics of winsock bitblt and vb

    and to give you a little helping hand i have made an opensoruce Visual Basic pokemon game that demonstraites many functions needed to use in a game such as maploading 8 directional movement Scrolling and most of the basics
