Excellent control panel. Easy to use. Well planned game. Love it! Read the readme file to learn how to set up the game. You can edit your own user level by browsing the database in PhpMyAdmin, looking at Users and selecting your username then setting User level to 2. From there, all other settings can be managed in the admin panel under "Staff Menu". The database to import is called dbdata.sql. Do not leave the database in your files directory. See a working version at mafia-donz.com. Remember to hide config.php from prying eyes by using htaccess directives (see journalxtra.com/websiteadvice/wordpress-security-hardening-htaccess-rules-4025/ for more info on possible directives to use).
Feature filled, and does not have too many bugs.
good game. but still has problems. needs a startup database with basic items. A working game is at www.thedarkfusion.com.
Beta, but very well thought out. Much better than most of the open source games of the genre available on sourceforge; at least better than the others I found, downloaded, and installed. Database is extensive but empty, although a demonstration database is on the schedule. User interface leaves allot to be desired, an updated UI is scheduled. Game play is highly configurable, and needed right off the back, as stated before, the database is empty. Be prepared to create jobs, gangs, weapons, markets, cities, the whole nine, but an administration ("staff") interface is there to help. Built-in player-donate-to-get-character-perks system via PayPal. Project was recently taken over by a new developer. Read the README.TXT in the files section. Frequently updated, 4 times in the past week, as of this writing.
