    I'm making a minigame and I need to know the best way to save player stats. Like wins. How would I do this. Would I use books, signs, config.

    I made another minigame and every time the config got more then 3000 player stats in it it started crashing. How could I make it less lagy.

    Note: I do not need to get top player and I am only storing one number.

    Only way I could see storing data such as this is a file. It does not have to be the main config though.

    Use MySQL, best way to store data.

    BajanAmerican I have no idea how to use mySQL and I would love to know.

    MySQL, SQLite, JSON, YAML, XML, TXT, any other SQL manager (Postgre). The list goes on and on, you just need to decide what you want :)

    Edit: re: sql. Have you worked with SQL in any way at all in the past?

    1Rogue I have never used SQL. Which one should I learn. And I only need to know the 4 basics. Getting data, adding data, changing data, saving it.

    How often would you be planning on updating the stats?

    I would recommend using SQLite then. If you want an idea of what it would look like for use, take a look at my SQLite implementation within one of my plugins, linked below. Keep in mind you will need to learn SQL syntax, which I can potentially link a resource to below.

    My implementation: https://github.com/1Rogue/PlayTime/tree/master/src/main/java/com/rogue/playtime/data/sqlite
    Sql guide (not the best): http://www.w3schools.com/sql/
    I really discourage w3schools for most things but overall I don't know many good ways to get started with sql.

    Can you just give me examples of:

    Getting data:
    Saving data:
    Adding data:
    Changing data:

    I'm looking at your code too.
    Edit: Is it possible for me to use the code from your classes you sent me and use methods to do the things above.

    You're welcome to use the instantiable SQLite class:

    https://github.com/1Rogue/PlayTime/...va/com/rogue/playtime/data/sqlite/SQLite.java

    Just leave the accreditation within it. Though you will have to modify it slightly :)

    To use it, simply make sure you've created the appropriate file, and then you can load it using SQLite.

    As for getting/saving/adding/changing data, those are all done through update and query strings.
