I know practically NOTHING about how to code, let alone how to code a discord bot. I’m hoping if I can ask for help from the community, maybe I can get this done.
I’m hoping to create a discord bot that can read messages from multiple channels, interpret data from the text in said channels (so I can have stat pages of characters), work with Attack, Skill, Guard and Item commands combined with Combo Dials, be able to alter text in a specific channel to display constantly changing stats (like HP, SP, TP and extras), be able to display a combat message that displays what happened in a battle turn, and be able to calculate how much damage was dealt, manage status effects and Item usage. Possibly more, but for now this is the baseline.
I understand this is quite a lot, but I’m willing to take things one step at a time.
Any help, from coding tips to even a starting point in a fork, would be appreciated.
I’m sorry, but someone with zero experience should not undertake such a tedious project. I suggest choosing your first language, and then making basic projects in that language. When you’ve mastered it, you can move on to more advanced topics, like this one.
Is there a recommended language to start with? I heard python is what is used for discord bots.
This is a bit of a one time goal of mine- I might not code after this, maybe I will. Either way, this is what is currently driving me forward.
