Adventures in Programming: The Second Update

Posted by Night Lone, in Adventures in Programming 04 September 2014 · 422 views
Programming, C++, Floating Point
So, I said I'd discuss problems and other things here gamedev related; so lets get started!

The biggest problem with game development, for newbies, in my opinion (could be wrong) is looking at the whole picture, think, "This is easy!" then do a few weeks work, learn that it's not as easy as was once thought of, and now all motivation is lost and you're...

C++, OpenGL, Programming
Well, not the start of my adventure in programming, that started when I was 14, and it started on a single core, 800MHz Pentium with 32MB RAM and 6GB HDD, but thats another story.
This is the start of my new attempt at a journal series! Here I'll discuss problems, and solutions I have while programming...just about anything I'm programming. This may be a...

Mar 15: KISS. Keep It Simple St–Unwise one...Drawing for games

Just saying, rather in programming, drawing, or anything, the best thing to learn is this: Keep It SIMPLE. More complex something gets, the more time it takes to make, the more time spent doing something you may want to avoid. Also, the more time it takes to someone to read it. Drawing on the other hand, more complex it gets, the more time it takes away f...

First off, for all those who begged for screenshots:
Then I learned how to get the true FPS to show...Next shot will show what my mac can do xD
Just saying, Collision detection takes a LOT from the computer, but right now both windows and mac machines are taking it nicely, once I add some more characters that need to stick...

just a little update to all...I'm actually programming a game!

There should be a screenshot at the end of the month showing what I've done. Every week I'll try to keep this updated...Maybe...I won't release the name of the game (as i'm not 100% decided on it) I'll be updating my twitter more with finer details, and be listing what I've done every week, p...

Well, I'm not dead >.< and I've been thinking; for those who don't know, I'm planning on trying to write a comic, now, I know my art is at least good enough to get some attention (I've seen a webcomic displaying art that looks like a 5yo can do). Hopefully by the end of it, my skills will be better, and if it gets enough attention, I'll then imple...

I drew these last night (see bottom), and during a meeting, (where my drawing skills was actually needed to be tested, so I brought these and others in) someone mentioned that what I drew reminded them of something already did; so I don't wanna steal some copyrighted materials. So if these look too similar to something (please link what you're comparing t...

C++Compiler Trouble
First of all, I would show progress about something, but nothing to show progress on; I'm attempting at some basic coding, and...well rather my skills are a tad bit rusty, or my IDE hates me. Considering I did everything by the book (err tutorial) I'm thinking I did something horribly wrong with installation of my IDE. I do not, cannot(too big of a downlo...

Just saying right now, i hate how detailed he needed to be!! I did the feet and one hand; the hand is to show that it's not like a human hand but different, I know it looks off but...well...no buts, it looks off!! Also, his one foot looks...well...ugly...but, like they say, hands and feet are one of the hardest things to do, especially so in such a small...

Drawing Week 1 Day 3: Simple Notification

Posted by Night Lone, 11 January 2014 · 269 views

No image yet; might not actually post one. Just a few simple notes really.
1) All images I'm submitting are just "prototypes" as I'm learning. I'm going to almost completely ignore the hands at this stage.
2) All images are of alien life, going to be separated in six races, the images I'm showing is the base template really.
3) most "official" images will...
