[My First Post] Hi to all

Recommended Posts

Hi, I would just like to say hi to the community! This is my first post here in gamedev.net but not my first time in the forums. I've learned a lot from browsing here for the past one and a half year and felt like it's time I join in. I came from the Philippines, a country where video games are insanely popular but game development is still in its infant stage. The only game I currently know of that has been published worldwide is "Anito" from Anino Entertainment and am very proud of it. To tell something about myself, I just graduated from college, finishing a course in Computer Science. I have previous experiences in game development. Started with simple 2d side scrollers and then going to 3D and currently mastering DirectX 9 (solely from the SDK since there are very few books here in our country pertaining to game dev). I am not gifted in terms of physical attributes as well as intellectual attributes and as such will be asking more in these forums than answering questions. What I only have is the tenacity to live up to the challenge regardless of the situation I am in. That said, Thank you for the time reading this.

Welcome. I was pleasantly surprised to not see the word MMORPG in your post - I wish more people would spend some time reading through the forums for awhile before they started posting.

Indeed. A most mature first post.
Welcome.

Doesn't Amazon (or any other online store) accept orders for the Philippines?

Hi,

Thank you for the welcoming. I truly appreciate it.

I would just like to clarify where exactly are you possibly expecting the word MMORPG in my post as I am clueless about what kind of point are you trying to imply.

Yes they do but the shipping and other additional fees are very expensive for someone who just graduated, poor, and jobless.

He's referring to the fact that a lot of new users tend to aim far too high with thier first project(s), which of course prevents a lot of them from succeeding. It's a good thing that you havn't done this. [smile] See this article for a small discussion of it if you'd like, but nothing to worry about - you're just being congratulated for starting things off the right way with smaller projects.

Oh, I see. Thanks for that Kazgoroth. Sorry for not understanding it (Damn!! My first thread already showed a lot of stupidity. Like I said, I'm not gifted with intellectual attributes and it SHOWS!!!)

Welcome to the gang! Make sure you post up all the projects you're working on.

Yes I will. But I also have to make sure that it's worth anybody's time to look at so I'll probably only show what I feel are quality apps and get some feedbacks.

Thanks again.

You know, when you edit the post, there is a little checkbox at the top that says "delete". This lets you delete double-posts. Just to let you know. [wink]

BTW Welcome to the forums. It's so good to see somebody not posting about an MMORPG here, and even better to see somebody browsing the forum, reading stuff LONG before they join up and start posting themselves. We've had a recent rush of people who did the exact opposite...
