Do you think I could just leave this part blank and it'd be okay? We're just going to replace the whole thing with a header image anyway, right?

Never used them but you seem to be able to edit .ini files the same way as any other text file

Re: Ini Files

I'm confused. You found .ini from the jaba tutorials, right?

He's basically handing you code, what's the confusion?

@cercul1 use XML, JSON or actual databases; there is lots of support online for the uses of these for most modern languages.

Re: Ini Files

^On that note, I know a gent who found JSONConvert or something from newtonsoft
one line: WriteFile(JSONConvert.SerializeObject(UserCollection))
boom. output.
one line: UserCollection = JSONConvert.DeserializeObject(ReadFile());
ok it's slightly more convoluted but that's the gist. one line and boom.

It does need a little bit more support, all individual outputs are strings - so you do have to convert to bool or int; JSON also matches to classes so things like http://koya.io/itemstats.json can be generated, fetched and edited easily.

Re: Ini Files

^Interesting. If you have no idea how to implement them, why are you so adamant they must be .ini format?

edit: we all ninja'd in like 2 seconds.
this was, obviously, directed towards cercul1

Re: Ini Files

I've used INI files lots of times in the past, they are intended for configuration files - not for storing dynamic data such as players.
You should very much use an actual database - not files, as they tend to corrupt (no journals) on crashes or power outage, etc.

I would personally recommend SQLite at this stage, which can be easily implemented in managed and non-managed forms, depending on your requirements.

However, if you're still insistent on using INI files incorrectly, you should see this.

Backups & easier for small applications; but yeah databases are the way to go.

yes, you could explain why you want .ini so bad
or look at what atilla dropped
or look at jaba's tutorials

but really, you're not being rational here.

or ask a mod to lock. or something.

What can ini do for you that a database or another easier file type can't?

We are helping you by suggesting better methods.
