    Hello Everyone :)
    I am completely new on Unity 3d, i have some experience with other plantaforms to create mobile 2d games, and some languages, i want to create a 3d multiplayer game on web, and i want to know, what i will need to make it, what i should use to develop be more easier, what languages types i need to know, as to create a web multiplayer game, maybe i need to know, database language, php, ajax ,etc, if you know and can, help with my question and all things that you think that can be good.

    P.S: if you know some tutorials to help me with web multiplayer games, it is very good for me, and i know that first i need to learn the program and basic tutorials, but i only want to see my limit to create a multiplayer game, if is very complicated to only 1 person, what i will need in the future, those things :)

    Thanks

    Read through Unity's networking, it's free and good to get to know networking a bit.
    Search the forum also on mutiplayer, you will a ton of info.

    i love network, and want to work with servers, networks, web sites that work with networks etc etc, and online games on network, and want to understand and learn a lot about it, so it can be dificult but i want to learn it, so i will work on multiplayer game, i will buy a local server, only to test and configure it to the game, and when it is done, only need to import it to the others servers, so i worked with network websites, and know some about it, databases etc, and now i want to know what i need to do first etc, example:
    - to start i should configure the server for the game? if yes... will start to learn about it.
    - to start i should do another thing?
    - etc etc

    Don't buy or rent a server, you'll have plenty of time to do that afterwards.
    Try the different tutorials around and then start learning.
    Try out Unity's networking, it's free.

    You don't even need internet to test out networking.

    That was the worst video have ever seen, seriously kid? The blind leading the blind much?

    Edit: Made a drinking game out of your video, every time you say "server" have a sip'.

    you don't need a server for a 'webplayer game', just upload the webplayer to your website.

    Google for client/server, which allways should be your first resource if you want to know more about something.
    It's complete free to use Google and you don't have to wait for an answer.

    if you want to do decent networking you need to know as much as you can about the subject.

    Agreed. He continuously mentions that it's really tough like we didn't get it the first time. It's almost patronizing.
