hello,
The client 3D rendering aspect of a MMORPG is not the biggest issue and in fact not so different than a classical 3D RPG
I think you should try to get information about network topology for such kind of applications... If you means massively multiplayer, you should be able to have more than one node/server that share a similar world , maybe look at the data grid concept (--> OGSA recommandations but it s more oriented on web services than on real time apps) or else you should have a very powerful (and probably very expensive) server....

But the first step is to be able to manage correctly your network. What do you have to send in order to ensure similar version of the world for each client??? and at the same time (synchronisation probllem)???

Practically, take a closer look at the nio package in the java API. it is aimed at developing applications with high scalability... But maybe not enough to be called massive :P

on this site you can download de jpct engine that cames along with the lwjgl that is the oprn gl support, the api also includes a javadoc, its not too easy to began, but once you understand the logic is quite easy, the you will se that the 3d part is not the problem but the game logic.
Nada por ahora

This 3D api is so intuitive. I did have confusion about 3d in general,
but, in terms of using this api, there is little trouble.

I was looking into j3d, and I was shocked at how annoying it is to use.

Thank you! That's what it's supposed to be. There surely is a price to pay for the simplicity but i think that it's worth it. I never understood the intention of APIs that are that complicated, that understanding and using them is similar to writing them yourself.

I agree with you there:).

A lot of the "alternatives" have so many classes and methods,
and strange render hints and flags, that you would probably be less confused making one from scratch;).

Totally agree with you two. Before jPCT I had pretty much given up on 3d programming. It's very hard for one programmer to do anything useful by himself from scratch, and the complexity of everything else out there is annoying. Except DarkBasic, but it doesn't work very well, and Basic isn't object-oriented, which sucks.

Ah, DarkBasic. I never tried that so far:)
I have to say, my favourite programming language is Assembly.
I was lucky enough to have started helping out on SolarOS(Assembly Language Operating System). It really is a fantastically logical, simple, powerful, fast, tiny binary files, well established language.

It's unfortunate its not hardware independent:P

I dont think anyone really has the time do explain something that detailed to you.

I suggest you visit gamedev.net.
