Dude, 9-year-olds are not the kind of crowd you want developing a game. It might do you some good to raise your standards, even just a bit.

I bet he's a teen himself, or even pre-teen kid(dat minecraft avatar). If his hobby is game dev and he want to make a game with people of his age, it's still experience and is good.

Still, when I was his age, I made games solo, and when I joined a team, it was of people older than me. Once I hit 13, I started my own team and still was the youngest on it. Even if he's really good, the odds of finding competent people his age are really low. You don't want a team where they hold you back.

You're right,but didn't you think that he might be holding team of older people too? Everybody should start somewhere. Though you're right,for now he should learn to program and create games solo.

      Hello!
                I wrote a simple bones system that renders a 3D model with bones using software vertex processing. The model is loaded perfectly, but I can't see any colors on it. For illustration, you can see the 3D lines list, the bones ( 32 bones ) are in correct position ( bind pose ).
       
      Now, here's the problem. When I try to render the mesh with transformations applied then I see this:
      As you can see the 3D lines are disappearing, I'm guessing the model is rendered, but the colors are not visible for whatever reason. I tried moving my camera around the line list, but all I can see is some lines disappearing due to the black color of vertices? I'm not loading any textures, am I suppose to load them?
      However, if I render the vertices without applying ANY bone transformations, then I can see it, but it's a mess, obviously. If you're wondering why it's red, I have set color of these vertices ( only half of them ) to red and the rest half is white.
      First of all, my apologies for the messy code, but here it is:
      I'm not sure if vertices are suppose to have weights in them for software vertex processing. I'm storing them in a container, so you don't see them here.
      #define CUSTOMFVF ( D3DFVF_XYZ | D3DFVF_NORMAL | D3DFVF_DIFFUSE ) struct CUSTOMVERTEX { D3DXVECTOR3 Position; D3DXVECTOR3 Normal; DWORD Color; }; This is how I store the vertices in container and give them red and white color:
      This is how I create the device:
      For every frame:
      This is the UpdateSkinnedMesh method:
      I have debugged bone weights and bone indices. They are okay. Bone weights add up to 1.0f, so I'm really wondering why I can't see the model with colors on it?
