Multiplayer game development question
I am in need of some guidance on getting started on a project.
Project details: I am looking to recreate(or reverse engineer) a game I played in the late-90s->2000s. This game was multiplayer and required login credentials. The game consisted of a lobby for all gamers to chat while choosing a game to join(a tavern). Once they chose with game to join, the game became a first person shooter.
The dilemma is, I have very minimal coding abilities. The good news, I am a very dedicated person. I am looking for someone to help me get started, and I don't mean the coding aspect. I need someone to look at the old game files and determine which language I should begin to become proficient in to make this project happen. I need to know where to begin my journey. I have all the old game files except unfortunately the server back-end that will need to be coded. It's my goal to get a game plan in order and know what needs to be done to make this project happen.
If anyone has the spare time to help a newbie out, It would be greatly appreciated.
Private message me or reply below if interested.

Re: Multiplayer game development question
If you plan to do this yourself, you should start small by doing some simple game tutorials and learning C#.
After you get some basic programming skills, then move onto user authentication, multiplayer, and reverse engineering.
