I finished my commenting and coding of some php code changes to the indie resources tutorial that do the following...
A. Monsters to not delete from the database upon death
B. Monsters not to have their HP changed in the database and
C. To not pass on the monster type through the address line
D. Record where the player is in a fight, so even if they close the browser, when they come back they'll come back to the fight just where they left off!
I've posted it over at indie resources. I'm pretty pumped it worked out (and now I've said that I'm dreading some unforseen bug coming up...I did test it a few dozen times though...)
