In Topic: Please give me some advice for future plans.

Ok guys thank you very much for your replies!


@ Tom Sloper: I think you got me wrong. But this is my fault. I didn't make it clear enough. I did not assume that programmers are dying out and that is the reason I do not get a job. It should have been another point/question in my post. I am pretty aware of what I am capable of.


One point I find very interesting, the Portfolio. What do you guys think what is it about such a portfolio that could convince a AAA (or not) developer to hire a person? Note here I am only talking about the portfolio not the social skills. Let's say I want to apply for a 3D-programmer job. Things I can think of:


  1. Clean code/coding technique.
  2. Visible understanding of basic concepts in 3D programming.
  3. A good code documentation.
  4. Something like project plan?
  5. Maybe how you create and implement concepts?


What else should I be aware of when creating such a portfolio? Would you completely agree with this article or is he/she missing something?

I was under the impression that programmers were the most wanted guys in the industry.


Isn't it true anymore?


If by industry you mean all the industry then the awnser is yes! I found it hard to find jobs in germany (and world wide) that target C# developers in the gaming industry though.

In Topic: OpenGL window is not visible.

glutInitWindowPosition(2500, 100); // Set the position of the window


2500 seems a little high for the x coordinate. Maybe you meant something like 250 instead?


If you find the console window to be a nuisance, you can always make it not show up by selecting Windows (/SUBSYTEM:WINDOWS) under Linker -> System -> SubSystem in your project settings.


Of course you are right. I wrote this code at work where I work with two monitors. At home I simply copy/pasted the code without even considering that something might be wrong.


Thanks again!

In Topic: Why does this code fail to read Blender's .obj file?

The trick was not to copy the file into the solution explorer but into the project folder.

While stating the obvious you do not seem to provide awnsers but to raise even more questions biggrin.png


I assume AAA titles also use formats of their own. However I wonder how they create them. I mean do they write plugnis for Autodesk's tools? I am pretty sure they use Autodesk, I mean writing their own modeling tools would produce a huge and unnecessary overhead, wouldn't it?
