Hi guys, this morning in the shower i was thinking about the way that MMORPGs are created and how to get enough programmers focused on the same thing. I realised how to do it and came up with: The (unofficial) GameDev Game Project. THE WHY's After seeing my (what seemed to be) millionth typical thread: "I want to create a MMORPG, and need a 3 man team to make it and what language/graphics/engine/any other basic part of an MMORPG" I felt sorry for these people as they will possibly not be able to finish the project and will give up well before they're finished and putting them off coding. Gamedev mine of intelligent, ingenuity and talent can be tapped into which is a massive resource of writes, programmers (of all types and specialities) and artists, that could club together and with a bit of input from everyone could lead to colossal results. This project would allow experienced programmers to flaunt their talents and new programmer (particularly the "i want to build the next biggest MMORPG to rival WOW" types) to feel part of a project/MMORPG. This will finally be good for the last two programmer types i can think of, the hobbyist, and those thinking about a career in programming. The hobbyist will have somewhere where he can tinker with code and still contribute, instead of leaving half an unfinished project, and the career programmer will experience what it is like to work on a project in a large development team. Anyway, enough of whys, you probably read the title and made your conclusions anyway, this would definitely be the case if you have seen your fair share of MMORGP threads on Gamedev. THE HOW's and WHERE's I'm planning on setting aside some of my website (myndoko.com /.co.uk) to this project, dedicated forums and ways to deal with new code could be added here, with daily builds being available, along with the source (to registered developers). There would be a core team of developers, insuring standards and coding are good and controlling direction of the project, todo lists etc. would be set by these guys. I'm still deciding on the genre, type of game and gameplay, but i would be nice to get some feed back and even let the writers decide, or the whole community have a vote. Weather or not the code goes commercial or becomes fully open source is a different matter but this can be decided if there is enough interest. As soon as i see how much support his idea has, i will fill in the blanks with an official project name, type etc. Any comments welcome, if you will support this project post and post any questions/suggestions. Cheers PureBlackSin

      I am a game development student working on a 2.5D beat 'em up brawler game in Unity as my final year project and I've been working on the ai for the enemies in the game. However, I've been unable to get the enemies to working properly as the enemies would be constantly stuttering and jerking while trying to follow the player. I've created a foreach statement and added some conditions that call for the robots to spread out and stay away from the player if it is not in an engaging enum state. This has been an issue plaguing the ai for a while now, analysing the animator, it seems like the robot's movement is instantaneously stopping and going which might be the reason causing this stuttering. But I'm not sure how to prevent the robot's movement from stopping and going. If anyone knows the reason why this is happening to the robots it would be much appreciated as my project is due soon and I'm still unable to fix such a game breaking bug! I've included a few videos below showing what is happening to my robots and also the stuttering shown inside the animator. I've also included the full script for my robots.

      Hi I'm a hobbyist getting together a team to pursue game creation, we'll do both 2D and 3D games, we would definitely build different types of games, and hopefully have a great time doing it. you dont have to have much experience, just enough that you think you can fill the position. I have plenty of ideas for games that I'd love your help with, and am completely open to fulfilling your game ideas . As of right now this is a for fun project thing, but if me and my team are satisfied with our work it can be published to steam or other platforms. 
      The positions I'm currently looking to fill are:
      2D Pixel artist
      3D Modeler 
      C# programmer
      Musician/Sound engineer
      I am currently working on a project it is a 2D Merchant adventure game with survival elements. It does not have a name yet, that's because I'm bad with names. 
       
      If interested please feel free to leave me a PM or email at dealtavu@gmail.com so we can talk more about it..
