  1. wow, that site's pretty sick. Defantly going in my bookmarks, thanks!
  2. thats a shame, well thanks for the help! I gladly appriciate it.
  3. So your telling me I can't change the Sony Ericsson xperia play hard drive, RAM or processor? I'm not asking for other models, tell me about the play.
  4. now i love my sony xperia play but i'm very disappointed. first thing this morning (well afternoon) i read news that sony deiced not to update the play to 4.0 (a.k.a. ICS or Ice Cream Sandwich). i was hoping that would make the phone a little faster and more fluent, but it'll never come out :/ . so i started thinking, why is this phone slower then other smartphones, Hardware. i love it's Game pad but i hate the small hard drive, and RAM (it's practically the same amount of space in internal storage and ram, wtf?!?) and it's processor is actually only one core when most of the phones now a day are dual, and Samsung is bringing quad to the table, why stay with one core? and since i don't see a new play station certified phone coming out anytime soon (at least one with a game pad) so now i'm stuck with either "great gaming" or "a good smartphone". can i change the phone's hardware?
  5. i want to start from the very basic, like a for dummies type of tutorial. i dipped my toe into VB.net but it's time i moved on to something a little more exiting, VB wasn't very fun. after a lot of work all i got was sh*tty hello worlds but hey, worked for experience. i want to start coding (from scratch) on to actionscript, and start working on my first real projects. any help of tutorials i should check out?

    Whats wrong with java?

    so i've been reading most of the posts put up here (because some started saying stuff i didn't understand so i was all like "next") and what i've seen so far is C++ is just as bad as java java still blows (just not as hard as i thought) C# is my best bet true or am i completly off?

    Whats wrong with java?

    I'm sorry, but that reason is sh*t. thats like saying "well the reason valve games blow is because it requires me to download steam and i look for another gamethat doesn't and usually succeed". pure bullsh*t.
  8. Wow, i had no idea how complex a basic Tetris game is. well i guess i have lots to learn, i should aim so much lower. what games did you start out with? [/quote] my very first game(if you can call it that), was something i made in 8th grade, essentially, my tech teacher introduced us to flash mx(and the absolute bare minimum of actionscript.) i basically built a bunch of crappy "rooms" that you could click to go to a different room, it was pure shit, poorly executed, the code was essentially a bunch of onClick, goto, and i feel ashamed to even remember it, i had no sense of variables, logic, or anything of that. but my teacher pointed me to flashkit.com, where i started to learn the basics. my second thing i built was basically flying a little triangle to fight a bunch of triangles. but i had no idea of vector math, or trigonometry at the time, so it was extremely poor. my understanding of array's/variables was still very cruddy at the time, and i could only fire a single "bullet" at a time, and trying to fire more just reset the bullet. but at the time, i kept going and made 5 levels with different color ships, and an enlarged boss ship. i replicated the code across all 5 frames that i made each level into. i have no idea how it even managed to run, but somehow it did. fun times. [/quote] Somehow doesn't sound encouraging. but i guess i can try those little projects out. Maybe make it be a little pixalized ship (using paint) instead of a triangle and try to be able to shot more then one bullet at the time. (i'm so full of myself)
  9. Theres the thing, VB used to be easier and more productive than many langauges. But with the invent of C# and move to VB.net, this simply isn't true anymore. VB.net isnt easier than C#, if anything, it's harder due to the lack of support ( more books, samples, etc in C# ). More or less VB.net was created as a language to transition VB developers to C#, although MS will never admit that. Simply put, there is no advantage to starting with Visual Basic anymore. Fortunately, since it is so similar to C#, there aren't really that many disadvantages either, other than making things slightly more difficult on yourself. [/quote] So you say just jump to C#? If so, how? What should (or need) to download to work with that language?

    Whats wrong with java?

    I've been looking around the web and I've seen a deep hatred towards java? I mean to me it seems like a decent language (then again i'm a noob that doesn't know sh*t about programming other then "If then's" statements.) I also have seen that C++ has a very good rep. can someone explain this to me in VERY VERY LAYMEN TERMS? (noticed how i bolded, underlined AND CAPITALIZED, very very laymen.)
  11. Yes, this sounds like a great idea. i think i'll try this out. (but after i get a little bit of programming skills, basic stuff like 'if then's' then that. that's all i know right now and it find this really interesting, i want to see how far programming goes and what i can come up with) That sounds like something i'm gonna do. then jump to actionscript and then jump to something more steep as C# or Python. my end goal is C++ (but by the time i get there i'm sure i'm gonna be using C++11.) I loved the idea of having to learning more advanced math stuff. when i started seeing this code on VB i was like, wait, this is algebra! If you have any good math book recommendation then i'll take them. Right now i'm only 16 and haven't taken this level classes yet.

[edit] Oh my, will the gods of IP.Board PLEASE fix the stupid issue of white space getting inserted all over my post? [/quote] I've noticed. thanks for telling me about the languages, very helpful info. I started as a map author in Quake 1. This allowed me to appreciate an incredible amount of details. The workflow was a bit clunky at the time and the limited hardware resources implied this was going to become technical very soon. I suggest to play a bit with a full game first. I think some version of Unreal might give you an idea of what you roughly need. I eventually got pissed off by the limitations of the Quake engines (more or less when Quake III was released) and started playing more seriously with code. Unfortunately, my life quickly become a mess for other reasons... starting from the assets side of things is a good idea. [/quote] I was think about the idea of messing with garrysmod mods or even counter-strike maps. does that work? Wow, i had no idea how complex a basic Tetris game is. well i guess i have lots to learn, i should aim so much lower. what games did you start out with? Bookmarked, i'll be checking this out. i'm still gonna use VB 2010 JUST to learn the BASICS, i by no means want to work with real programming with this language. all i'm using it for is to get the main idea of how this works (although it's a really sh*tty bad idea, but oh well)
  12. Lost, would love help.
  13. Lost, would love help.
  14. WOW, i almost forgot yet i put this in the tags. What are and which of these languages should i use: [font=comic sans ms,cursive][color=#000000]ASP [/font] [font=comic sans ms,cursive][color=#000000]ASP.Net [color=#000000]VBscript, JScript, or Javascript [color=#000000]Visual Basic.NET C# Visual Basic 6.0 or Earilier C/C++ XML Flash/ActionScript F# HTML Ruby on rails Java AJAX PHP LINQ SQL Python/IronPython VBA [/font]
  15. I am very, VERY lost. I've been trying to learn how to do game developing. even something as basic as a tetris game, a mario bros. clone, or even a pac-man clone. To get to these I've been working on Windows Visual Basic 2008 Express and learn some basic coding. Is this the right step, should i jump to something more steep? What should i do? so far the most I've done is an 'if then' statements, textbox usage and that's it.is there any books, if so which? ANY THING WILL HELP, even a story of how you guys got started, i will love it. thanks in advanced!
