Hi I have no experiance with vb6 and databases, but I do have experiance with mysql and php... I wanna make a game with vb6 and retrieve the user info from my sites database. How do I connect to the database in vb6.

A tutorial would be nice.

first download mysql ODBC driver 3.51 and instal it to your machine.

' the connection string
Public Const sqlCon = "DRIVER={MySQL ODBC 3.51   Driver};SERVER=<server address>;DATABASE=<database name>;USER=root;PASSWORD=;OPTION=3"

    Dim rs As ADODB.Recordset
    Dim adoConn As ADODB.Connection
    
    Set adoConn = New ADODB.Connection
    adoConn.ConnectionString = sqlcon
    adoConn.Open
    
    Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset
    rs.ActiveConnection = adoConn
    rs.LockType = adLockOptimistic
    rs.CursorLocation = adUseClient
    rs.CursorType = adOpenDynamic
     sqlstr = "<your query here>"
    rs.Open sqlstr

hope it helps.
