To be able to enjoy all of the features available to the community, you will need to sign up for a member account. Registration is easy, free and only takes a moment to complete.
To sign up, click the Register link at the top-right of any page. You can then provide your email address and password to complete the registration process.
You may also register with Facebook or Twitter. If you use these services, you can use your existing login information from those services to link your account. Registration via this method takes only 3 clicks and will return you back to the forum after you authorize it.
If you choose to register a GameDev.net account rather than link to an existing Facebook or Twitter account you will be asked to validate the email address you used to register with. An email will be sent to this address within a few minutes. If you do not receive an activation email you cannot access your account and login to the site. In this case email support
with your username and they will handle the activation process for you.
