I started a project of my own recently and am curious about account creation. I am using noobscape source which is derived from easy rsc and one great feature is automatic account creation upon login if that account does not exist. I don't see this project being especially popular for the time being so utilizing text documents for players is sufficient. I am curious though if there is a 'simple' way to disable the auto account creation and instead interface with a forum. Getting the forum to write out to a text document would be simple but I'm not sure how to stop auto character creation at the login screen.
Also, as an aside, how 'difficult' might it be to revert back to an sql database if the server did pick up? Should I stop now and start fresh with another source with these capabilities if that is a future possibility or might it be within reason to do it later?
Any advice is welcome, thank you!
