Hello everyone !

i truly hope someone can help me with this, i'm creating an e-learning game by using RPG maker MV. where each student will play and i will evaluate how they feel about the game by a survey but i have to evaluate some data from RPG maker MV as well.

and i was wondering if i wanted to evaluate each player's playing time or how long each player takes to finish each quest, what would be the best evaluation approach in RPG maker MV ?

Should i connect it to a database ? if so how would i do that

and if there is any other solution i'm open to any other options.

Thanks in advance !

Yes, you will need some backend with a database. Then the game can frequently send updates to the server. I wouldn't know any other way to solve this problem.

Hm I never deployed a backend + database by myself, so I know only the theory behind it. You can google if there are ways on how JS Code can access a MySQL, PostgreSQL, whatever db, I really don't know if there are tricks out there. I would recommend to deploy a small backend with JS Node, Java SpringBoot or Python Flask, I think these are the most easiest frameworks for each programming language. The server will provide a simple REST interface to receive data from the game and then store it into the database.

I have my website hosted on 1&1, it's a small company literally in my hometown, and they offer solutions with virtual Servers + MySQL database. And they have a nice customer support. Any other provider would offer you the same or similar solution(s). I never tried out the virtual servers, but I think there are enough people here and tutorials in the web to explain you how to setup a webserver. Just google for "REST", "Microservice", "Webserver".. that could be good starting points for you.

I always told my DA fans how much I hate slot machines. They're fine in games as a risk-and-reward system. But when you're spending REAL MONEY in a Vegas casino to try and hit the jackpot (which very, very few people will), it can really hurt your budget. Gambling is a bad habit, and I don't like wasting my money on a slim chance. Go to Vegas for the experience, not the jackpot.
Took the kids to a corn maze. They gave us a map and had lights at certain points in the maze. Not overwhelming... or underwhelming... just... whelming.
