Using SQL server and C# to register and store player info.

How does one do it? I've heard they create a table in the SQL server then create windows form applications in visual studio 2010.
Can someone explain it to me in detail?

Do you mean an externally hosted SQL database, like MySQL?

what's the difference between an internal and externally hosted SQL database? This is for game data saving.

Edit:I'm taking up a subject on using My SQL and windows form applications to imput and save player data. Well that's what we have so far and I can't seem to get how the two are linked.

The main differences are that if it's an externally hosted database, the connection tends to be different rather than if the database is just on the users system to store data.

Basically, you allocate a database connection (usually a class for itself, depending on the database system you're trying to use - SQL Server is the one .NET uses, look up the System.Data(.Sql) namespace) with a connection string (which is usually a string that tells the system what database file to connect to), and then execute queries to it. Read up on the SQL syntax that SQL Server uses. It's pretty simple once you get the hang of it.

Something like a simple program where I input some data (Name,Age,etc) i press a button and it brings up a table showing current data.

    I just saw a bunch of running and jumping past all the enemies look like it was scripted as he said I guess I should have watched the whole thing. I only got a couple of minutes in. You should post that video in the forum Tom

    Currently busy with making the run even better, so I'll post that new one once I'm done. Right now, I had to modify the emulator itself, the tools that makes this video, and some RAM address disassembling / reverse-engineering to get the right values, and such.
