Does ANYONE like this? Or should I remove it?

It is a VERY useful piece of technology. You can manipulate ANY type of MySQL command you want.

Hi MW,
I like this. I'm assuming that it could be used to save leaderboards online and such, correct?
This is very useful, just that I need to develop my game further.

Yes. It can be used to manipulate ANY MySQL command or commands. It can save MORE than JUST Leaderboards

Well, client -> online database isn't good at all.
Login Data could be fished and so someone could access the database.
Database Connection should be made with a server, allways.

But good idea.

Edit: I think thats the reason why you removed your webside example?

No it is not. And no, it CANNOT be phished. I encrypt the password data as it travels through the internet with MD5

Yes, i dont mean the user password.
If your cleint connects directly with the database, like
HOST: 123.132.123.133
Port: 8885
User: SSSsss
Database Password: uifsdfjk
Database: test_db

that data is not encryption in the client, is it?

That Connection Info is easy to phish, get a packet logger and you have all data in plaintext. (Again: I'm not talking about the User Password)

If someone got the info, he could easy connect to the database with a sql manager and edit the database.

But again: If you use this in a server - its totally okay and very good but: In a client, a direct database connection isnt secure.

it IS secure. It secures the MD5 in my database as well.

Also, the EXE is Super encrypted by a program I used, so even if u did manage to find the line that allows u to login, u cant phish it, as I had it encrypted.

..and yet it's done every day. Putting a live SQL server of any type on the internet is just asking to get hacked. My system gets port scanned by hackers all the time, and if they found an open SQL server port they would have a field day.

Database connections should only happen on the local machine. Typically that's a server app connecting to the local database to validate the client/player through the app's own secure login methods.

that's what this does -.-

I encrypted the EXE, and the data travelling through and back to it.

No, you did:
Accessing the Database on your Webserver from your computer

That is bad.

Accessing the Database on your Webserver from an application on your webserver.

That is good, because there's no direkt access from the internet to the database.

But thats not a point of your project, more a thing of your example.
With your project its possible to create a local server thats connecting to a local database. Thats good!
But User should not connect with the client directly to the database.
Like

Client -> [connect] -> Database <--- wrong
it should be
Client -> [connect] -> Server -> [connect] -> Database (without connection with the internet / "outside") <--- good.

Would be Better if you create an additional example with client & server, and the server is connected to the database.

And no, not everything is encrypted. Connection data is plain data and easy to read out.
Saying 'yes, but its illegal!' to secury bugs... come on, nobody cares if its illegal or not. Its a massiv security hole.


-----

If you dont want to understand that this is not secure - okay, your thing. Its just my opinion that your example (I repeat: your example, not your project!) is not secure.

It is up to the user what happens. I can't be held responsible for THEIR screw ups.

Yes, it's the thing of the user. Thats right.
Just wanted to tell you, because the example connected on your website database. And thats your Database that could be screwed up.

By the way, you know why it's not starting for me?
Before i have installed the connecter, when i've started it, it said "No Connector something".
Installed the ODCB Connector, now the .exe is not starting anymore.

Got an Idea?

To download the NO .NET needed SQL plugin, go here:

You will ALSO need to download the simple message box plugin (Credit: Twisted Steel Software)

You can download THAT at: http://forum.thegamecreators.com/?m=forum_view&t=127624&b=1

You will ALSO need BBB GUI (credit: Brendy Boy)

If you do NOT have the ODBC DLL file, needed to connect using MySQL, you can download it from the uploaded attachment! I have already scanned it for viruses, there are none at all. If you want to scan it more, feel free!

You will then need to put it inside of a folder in your Program Files OR Program Files (X86) folder, depending on your version of Windows.

In my case, it's C:\Program Files (x86)\MySQL\Connector ODBC 3.51\

Because I have Windows 7 - 64 Bit.

In the case of Vista and under, use C:\Program Files\MySQL\Connector ODBC 3.51

If you do NOT have the folder in your program files called MySQL (Yes, spell it the EXACT way I did. Grammar and all)., Then make that folder there. And then INSIDE of the MySQL folder, create a folder named "Connector ODBC 3.51". (Again, spell it the EXACT same way I did). THEN you need to put myodbc3.dll inside the Connector ODBC 3.51 folder AFTER extracting it."
