Well, getting GDNet+ was nowhere near as painless as I thought it would be. It was pretty good and easy considering I had to sign up for a PayPal account and all.

Anyway, so this is my journal. I still don't know whether or not I'll update this journal 400 times a day but I guaruantee it will be at least 1 post per year.

I am a Matric(final year) student at a private school in Cape Town. My programming language of choice at the moment is Java. This is the language taught at my school and once I am finished I will hopefully continue with C++.

Next year, I will hopefully be studying at University of Capetown in the science faculty.

My outside school project is an RTS game in C++. I am hoping for it to be similar to Starcraft than Warcraft 3. IE: More 2D than 3D. I have yet to see an RTS 'meld' with 3D.

Cheers for now.

Welcome to GDNet+!!!!!

You should post some screenshots of your RTS, it sounds pretty cool.

Unfortunately, the game was booted back to the concept stage when my hard drive just decided to stop working about a month ago. However, I will endeavour to bring it back up to speed. There wasn't anything besides code to see anyway and I made a lot of mistakes and wrong turns in the bits I did code. This time I won't make those mistakes!

Thanks for your ratings! Support for my game is one of the things that I need the most.

Welcome to Journal Land++.

We encourage you to post screenshots of whatever you're working on (even if it has hideous programmer art).

Welcome to Journal Land indeed, and I'm suprised I didn't get to you first. Rate++ all the way, man. Maybe if you're chill enough, you'll get to roll with my crew. Ha ha haaa... just kidding... but no, really.

If you want your journal to be popular, here are the three keys...

Post lots of pictars. Nobody wants to read your stuff w1th0ut teh p1kt4rZ!

Post alot about whatever project you're involved with. Try to give people insight as to the details of what you are doing while using as little code as possible. Remember, this is a journal, not a tutorial.

It's alright to get personal, and even be liberal about talking about the many details of your life. I know I do. But remember, nobody wants to sit back and load 20 pictures of you and your sister's boyfriend with dreadlocks pretending to eat a cat and trying to pass the dude off as yourself (little nudge, you know who you are... kidding, you're my main man) in dire hopes that you'll write a few sentances about your game project. Especially if you're new to the crew, cause (to be blunt) no one realy cares enough about you yet ;D.

Anyhow, a sincere welcome, and have a great time!


PS: For a good 3D RTS, check out "Battalion Wars" coming out for Gamecube. If they provide what they promise, it should kick some serious ass.
