Creating a full MMORPG ordinarily takes lots of specialised design software, high-end computers and the efforts of an entire game development company. However, creating a small MMORPG in the comfort of your own home is possible with XtremeWorlds, a free MMORPG maker. XtremeWorlds allows the user to create custom 2D games without any prior knowledge of game programming or graphic design. While the finished product may not have all the features of a commercial MMORPG, if you are looking to complete your project without any monetary investment, XtremeWorlds is your best option.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Download the latest version of XtremeWorlds from the official website. Extract the contents to your desktop.

  2. 2

    Open the "Server" folder. Open "settings.ini" in Notepad or any other simple text editing program. Write down the port number listed in this file.

  3. 3

    Double-click "server.exe." Once this application has loaded, click the "Find IP" option. Take note of the IP address displayed. Leave this window open.

  4. 4

    Open the "Client" folder. Launch the "Client" application. This will display a menu of options. Click "IP Config." Type in the IP address acquired in Step 3, then the port number from Step 2.

  5. 5

    Click "New Account." Create a username and password. Return to the main menu and log in. Select "New Character" to create your in-game character. Click "Use Character." You will now enter your newly created server.

  6. 6

    Return to the server window. Type "/set access 9 [Character]." Replace "[Character]" with your character's name. This command will give you administrator access to your server.

  7. 7

    Return to the client window. Type "/help." This will display all the admin commands you have at your disposal. To access the main control panel, press F1. Here is where you will find all your editing tools, such as the map editor, NPC editor and quest editor. Use these tools to customise your MMORPG any way you wish.
