Web Application -- Is that the right solution

P: n/a
Hi,

I have invented a game, which I license to casinos. I have created a demo
program, so that people can play the game on their computer. It is a VB
executable.

I would like to create a web site, where people can play the game. I am not
a web developer, and I am considering rewriting the game in Java to run on a
web page.

Can I create an ASP.NET Web Application as a VB project, to do this? Or is
there a better solution?

Thanks for any help.

Theoretical you can use the rich client concept. However, it will probably
not have the result you want because of all security settings that have to
be handled in IE/FireFox which will not be setted by the user.

If I had the same decision to make as you, than I would probably first try
what it means to make it possible to download *obfuscated* that demo game.

Know that with giving software to others you give them the possibility to
make it themselves. If by instance I see your program on Internet, than I
probably will be able to make that program as well using the idea. (And
probably make it than better, not because I am a better developer than you,
however have the straight idea to handle).

I would not go for the Java idea, because than the program will probably not
have the same effect as now, the result can be that people judge on that
behaviour what probably will be worse than in your original program.

However, just some ideas of me.
