Hello. When you want to get involved in content development, you should first set up your own tmwAthena test server. When you got it running try to edit some scripts or add new ones to get a hang for it.

It would also be good to learn how to use Git, our version control system, so you can pull the latest development version of the server content and also provide your contributions in form of git patches the others just have to apply. http://wiki.themanaworld.org/index.php/Git

After you've learned how to create and test your scripts you should consult the other developers on IRC to learn what they are currently up to and in what projects you can partake.

When you need help with anything, feel free to ask.

eAthena uses its own home-brewed scripting language.

Manaserv, on the other hand, uses the LUA scripting language.

it depends a little where you are aiming to.

manasource is a long term project. (-> you wont see your stuff in a game with people soon, but on the longer term)

eA (if you do good stuff, it gets really fast into the repositories, and the game which is played.)
