Hi fellow openGL loverz!

Special Thanks to ShiningKnight for showing me how how to place shortcuts to sites, here's where ya have to go....

Pretty cool! Good effects, nice music... looks very professional.

But... hey, kid! You''re lying! Unless you only use the "copy and paste code" method, its absolutely impossible that you can achieve such an application after only 3 month of C++ programming, unless you''re the next John Carmack

Come on, and tell the truth.

Nice work.., very nice indeed for 3 months.
You never programmed either C or Opengl.., but are you new to programming ? You never programmed in your life, or do you have any experience with some other language ?

Try to post the demo to cfxweb, the guys love to see all kinds of demos.

Bruno & Gameovercl..... U say it''s imposible to do what I have done with just 3 months experience of c? It isn''t opbviously
That''s probably ''cause I''ve been programming since I was 15 (Now at the ripe old age of 23) on various languages, starting with the Amiga (AMOS basic, LOL!) then pascal and more recently (About a month or two, just before starting to learn C) DarkBasic.

I have posted the source code to ''The DarkSide'' and when looking at it, U will notice that I have indeed used other peoples code to load in files from RAR achieves and also used the almighty NeHe basecode (That windows code hurts my little brain!) I have also yet to grasp the concept of classes and various other C++ related topics, all my code is simple.
Finally, NeHe''s wonderfull site has enabled me to learn everything that was required to make that demo, without this site I would probably just about getting past the drawing of a triangle by now

Oh almost forgot!!!
Thanx for downloading my little baby

The above ap was me
And I wanted to edit it but can''t so I''ll just add corrections here...
I say I''ve been programming since 15.. I have, but it''s been an on and off affair.

Also, I really like the way gameovercl stated that it looks professional, I didn''t think it was, but hey!! Cheerz

Hey... hold on your horses!!!

I didn''t told that i didn''t believe in you!!
I just asked if you had any programming background, nothing else!
I see you have, so, it''s not that hard to make what you did in 3 months
and it looks professional, no matter what you say

nice work,

Bruno

I really liked it, just wanted to give you some response

disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once. Heroism at command, senseless
brutality, deplorable love-of-country stance, how violently I hate all this, how despicable and ignoble war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be a part of so base an action! It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder

Anyway, you are a very talented and creative guy.
Congratulations, pal!

Kenwi, cheers for the cool response!!! (also like yer signature, totally agree with the "a spine will be enuff" & "Murder under cloak of war" parts! Got me thinking and I like thinking

gameovercl...
"Anyway, you are a very talented and creative guy."
LoL!!! Cheerz

zedzeek, my next project to re-create the old classic game StuntCarRacer maybe a little bit too ambitious for me as I haven''t even learnt how to calculate collision detection yet, but hey! It''s one of the reasons I decided to learn OpenGL, I REALLY want to re-make this game!!
Expect it finished some time this century

I viewed your page as well, You''ve done some pretty neat stuff there! =)
I''m glad you liked my signature, well. that''s what I do
-
There aren''t any promises, nothing is certain. Only that some get cold and some get saved. He wont ever know the hartship and greed for those of us left behind. We commit these bytes(or bits if you want) to the void, with a glad hart. For within each seed there is a promise of a flower. Within each death there is a promise of a new life, no matter how small it seem. There''s alwasys a new life, a new beginning.

Chew on that

Great demo indeed. One last thing before this thread fades out of existance. I had noticed when I grabbed a copy that you used something to count clicks, but I wasn''t posative until you said a number. How did you do that? Was it a service, custom html or java? I''d love to know, because that seems very useful for my website. Thnx for any response (even if it''s not telling me).
