I am starting to code a browser game, I have a rudimentary chat set up, and would like to start creating the battle engine, I have a general idea of how I want it to play out, but I don't know where I should do the calculations,

  • SQL Server
  • ASP.NET

I don't post JavaScript as an option because I don't want the user to be able to alter/hack the game that way.

What are the benefits and drawbacks of either method of coding the Battle Engine?

  • \$\begingroup\$ What tech to use is a rather personal question. What other requirements do you have? Also, ASP.NET doesn't run in a browser like JavaScript does—they're pretty much totally orthogonal unless you consider Node.js. Really confused by that. \$\endgroup\$ – Anko Dec 28 '14 at 3:46
  • \$\begingroup\$ asp.net runs server side code, which is not Client side, and cannot be altered by client side, but a form submission can be run through code behind. I am not really sure why you would be Confused @Anko \$\endgroup\$ – Malachi Dec 28 '14 at 4:01
  • \$\begingroup\$ The battle mechanics would take place in the code behind and then the results recorded in SQL Tables accordingly along with the Results returned in the response to the browser. \$\endgroup\$ – Malachi Dec 28 '14 at 4:02
