I want to make a web based game in javascript. It will be 2d and will be based on the game stick-rpg. I do not know where to start. Please help me get a boost.

How are you looking to make this game? You're talking about this stick rpg right? Is it going to be like that? If so, then JS may not be the best way to go, especially if you just know some of it. Are you going to want people to log in to get to their characters or anything like that? You might want to look into some databasing things then like MySQL. Do you want it to be HTML based? Or do you want there to be an applet (you might mean that you want to make it in Java then).

I think that maybe he's trying to be ingenuitive. I've seen games made with things like JS and DOM, but they're not very good games and take up a lot of memory, they just aren't scripting languages that are good for that kind of thing. I mean, you can make games and stuff with them and be like, "Oh hey, I made this with this, something that's really hard to do." But is there really a use for it when there's better things to do it with?
