artwork..or is it?

I've made several paddle's for breakout, finally! I'm making a game!. Here's a look at the one currently going through my testing - I know, it's horrible, but it was _the_ best one I've made in 45 minutes..Any comments on how to improve my artwork?




API madness!!

I'm having trouble figuring out which API I like better!I have tried allegro,SDL,and Win32 I think I like Win32 the best :P.do people really comment a lot when you write HITLER?



webpage madness

I have started learning how to make webpages here is my current webpage http://members.gamedev.net/basictuts/mypage.htm
don't ask why I named it that its a long story:).tell me what you think and what webpages I should put in there on version 4.0 Im gonna add vb tutorials,assemblytutorials,pascal tutorials a guestbook, and some crappy games that I made.for some reason the pics won't work!!!All in all I think its pretty good for my first few tries.




Man, I hope I'm doing this OpenGL thing right, it's a lot different than doing graphics with SDL.I'm going to try to finish a project soon[smile].here is what I have so far



what happened?

This site rocks because my cousin just joined it seems that gamedev is taking more souls a day than anything else I can think of I'll bet 20 bucks he goes to the lounge and for some "odd" reason stays there.I got about 2% done on our game so far(on my part),I also added a new background

something that I have never actually done before don't know why I never changed it but Im glad I did.



I'm getting a new computer :)

Today i ordered a desktop from dell it should be here in a few days i'm mostly glad because of the following -

- it can plays dvds

- it has a 17" monitor

- it can hold vc++.net(unlike this computer)

- it comes with a trial version of paint shop pro

- it comes with a free printer

- its like a billion times faster than this computer
can't wait till it gets here [smile].




Downloading the vc++ express beta didn't work so I'm going back to dev-c++ until I can get vc++.net2003.Man this sucks I didn't want to shell out the dollar dollar bill it's $120.00[wow], but I guess if I have to I'll get it untill vc++ 2005 express comes out in March.By the way thanks ontheheap you saved me quite a few bucks by putting that link to that free version of thinking in c++,i'm only on chapter one, but thats because i've got a ton of school work to do :(:(.




Today I realized that I know very little of stl, and especially boost I've never even heard of it till I started reading Gaiidens scroll, so I wanted to learn how to use it.I also ditched dev-c++ for the Visual C++ 2005 Express beta I'm still downloading It, but It's gonna be a while before It's finished. I guess I will practice programming for a few days then start learning directx.



Linux and artwork..!

I started downloading Suse Linux 3-5 hours ago, and am only around 0.9 percent done. It should be done in a couple of days [wink]. back in popular demand! Here is some artwork!!!1




I'm in the middle of watching a southpark marathon when it goes off I'll probly start aon the next chapter in my book that I left off on last night oh I almost forgot, I also want to haxor in some music in my journal like mushu did I can't figure out how though:(.



today was a little different

I got up at f**king 3:58 p.m this afternoon and im still tired [smile] i went over to my friends house and he wasn't there:( im almost halfway through my book im waiting on my dinner so i made this program #include

using namespace std;

int main()
int num = ((rand() % 100) + 1); //make a random number between 1 and 100
int tries = 0;
int guess;
cout"enter a number between 1 and 100";
cin>> guess;

if(guess > num)
cout"thats too high\n\n";
if(guess cout"thats too low\n\n";
}while(guess != num);
cout"you got it in"}

and i hope my show comes on tonight.




random thought of the day(yes i'm copying mushu).

I wonder what life would be like if life was like
grand theft auto any version.

I was gonna through a party for Halloween
but forget it since my cousin isn't coming.I'm still
on chapter one in thinking in c++.Man I love to program:).



beat my cousin in pool 23 times and in bowling

My cousin and me went down to the lanes and played 25 times and bowling twice the first time he kick my butt (he bowled a 203!)the second time I wooped him then I scared the crap out of my dad when he picked us up when he was driving I popped a balloon in his ear [smile]. when I got home I started this program #include

using namespace std;

int main()
const int MAX_WORDS = 3; //make the max number of words three
const string words[MAX_WORDS] =

srand(time(0)); //seed the random generator
int choice = (rand() % MAX_WORDS);
string theword = words[choice];

string jumble = theword;
int length = jumble.size();
for(int i = 0; i {
int var1 = (rand() % length);
int var2 = (rand() % length);

char temp = jumble[var1];
jumble[var1] = jumble[var2];
jumble[var2] = temp;
cout int k;
return 0;
it's still got a small error but I'll fix it in a minute.



nuttin to do

MAN there was nothing to do today so I went over to my friends house and got my butt kicked in basketball.When I got home a few hours later I decided to stay up all night[smile]now I'm working on this


using namespace std;

int main()

thats all I have right now.



I hate the dentist

Man I had to go to the dentist and i'm still tired after staying up all night i'm doing my homework right now, that program I was doing last night still not working:( but i'm confident that i will be able to get it to work[razz].But don't think that that was the only program i worked on last night.



i switched a couple of things...

I switched my avatar if you haven't noticed already:), I waited a little bit before I switched out my computer I'm downloading
dev-c++ at this moment.While I was playing poolmaster livebillards I noticed there was a small bug in it it would freeze up at a certain spot on the pool table.




I'm about to start downloading maplestory
from the screenshots it looks fun,which I hpe it is
because all I have to play on my computer is a pool game.
My cousinsmom said he can come over this weekend which is good
because now I am going to have a small party:).
I've got 20 pages of school work left before I can
start back reading TICPP.




It seems that eveyone I know is celebrating
Halloween today on Saturday.My friend said he can't
come cause he sick,which I know is a lie because
I just saw him playing basketball with someone.
I'm on chapter 2 of TICPP, but by the end of the day I'll
probanly be on chapter 4, thats because I got to set up
for the party and stuff. I played my pool game today
and almost won the tournament[smile].I want to make a
text-based version of harvest moon were you can choose
from 3 different players,but I guess I'll do that another day.



text based madness

Me and dylee have decided to make our own little text-based rpg muhahaha.So far im pretty much the storywriter,but I guess thats a good thing.right now its just in the design stages but when its finished,and it might not get finished but you will all be able to download it if it does get finished.Im gonna be putting more information about it as we finish it but on my site.




I've been programming all day I've only got 3 chapters left in my book till I'm done with it :).I really want to play my ps2 hadn't played it in a while I'm debating how long I will wait till I download dx.



levesl gain gone!

I stripped out the level gain system and am gonna put a skill system in there.For some reason I thought that a skill system would be better in a text adventure, now it is only about...0.5% done, but I will make up for it=).
