Help with what to use for server connectivity

Hi,

I am trying to find out some information about being able to have a unity game connect to a server (at the moment its just another PC) which will use mySQL for username and password login and it will store character details etc… So it would run like say World of Warcraft or Star Wars.

It will eventually be a very small version of an MMO.

So I am asking if unity will just be able to use the database on a server straight or will I need a piece or software that will help connect it and bridge the gap?

Thank you for your time,

Doomie

Hi, you can use mysql from Unity, but you will have to install .Net-connector:

Also, when you build for windows, you will have to add some mysql DLLs to your assets:
