Hello!

I almost said, i am coder (in fact i earn my living by doing that), but actually i am a general purpose bit-mangler guy. I do everything a little-bit, but nothing in depth. I had an on-off passivist scene presence, but after some recent personal events, and re-prioritizing, i decided that i will come back. So i started a 4k intro code, and the research for that was that got me here.
For my "language" skills... eh :) I did (ab)use : BASIC, C,C++, Java, Pascal, Perl, PHP.
PHP gets me money to feed my addictions of 15C+,caffeine,nicotine,1200kcal,230V,200kbit+
C and C++ are the new additions to the list.
I use linux for more than 8 years now.
My target platform is my N450 netbook, so everything i make should work on that (OpenGL 1.5).   

For my personal stuff:
I walk the dark path in more ways, than it is polite to acknowledge.
For the people who know mbti, i am an ENTJ.   

So that is me roughly. I hope my being here will be of mutual benefits.

Hi, very interested in work on size optimization mainly for 1k intros :)
thanks to all !

Hi and Welcome ... cool topic. Any 1k intros released yet?

Not 1kb but several small stuff there http://olivier.poudade.free.fr (see pacman2k.asm, 5kpasm32.asm , tiny4gb.asm, tinyporv.asm or 2ksbmod.asm from year 2000). I'm ex-kozmik/NE or ex-baudsurfer/RSI of 1985, and I did release this 4kb http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=1878. I've moved on and I still code but seldom release. I am exploring 256b a bit before moving on to PE header mangling. I'm currently coding a GM tracker+vocoder interface for 256b intros in VB6. My asm stub is interrupt-driven in 72 bytes. I might release it after I produce with it (1 or 2 prods first ?).

I like the friendly atmosphere here. Thanks for the warm welcome !

hello, electronics engineer and boring programmer here. want to use the skills for some fun, and i've always loved the demoscene but have yet to do a demo. the scene is not quite big where i live, yet i'd love to learn more and start coding more fun stuff.

Hey folks! I'm a hobbyist/student, my background as far as programming goes is pretty much solid in Visual Basic, with a bit of knowledge in a variety of other languages. I also like to do pixel art and compose electro/lofi/chiptune music. In the recent months I've become enthralled by the world of the demoscene (no surprise really given my interests). I hope to start making some demos of some kind and currently have made all of: A text scroller and a rotating cube. Ideally I want everything I do to be cross-platform so I've been doing most of my stuff in Realbasic. I'd love any advice of to be put in the right direction if there's anyone out here who specialises in demo making a la cross-platform or in Realbasic. Cheers!

Welcome Pickles42 - thanks for your introduction.

Well, speaking of desktop OS cross platform in general (Windows, Linux, Mac) - personally I like the SDL Lib which offers a lot already (not limited to demoscene productions).

Since you use basic - you might also want to check out Freebasic (a lot of users here are using it) or PureBasic which supports Amiga, Linux, Windows and Mac.

Have fun and do not hesitate to ask questions here. That's what the forum is for ;-)

Greets, my name is Keith.  I'm a hobbyist game developer.

I've been programming since about 92 or so...  Started in Pascal, moved on to C, C++, C#, doing a few things in lua at the moment, made a few games in flash using the flashpunk library.

Even though I've been programming a long time I'm not very good.  Always had a PC (originally running MS-DOS and now windows).  I used to enjoy running demos that ran in DOS.  Always thought that stuff was great.  Saw some newer demos and they just don't have that style and panache that the old-school stuff has. 

Have always wanted to code some really cool effects (mostly the old ones, like plasmas, fires, copper, etc)  So finally I decided I would try to start.

I don't really have a place to start though.  So I joined the forums in hopes to find some help in getting started.  Right now I'm making games in love2d using lua, and I was trying to find out whether or not I could use it to make some cool pixel-stuff.  Love and lua aren't really made for accessing things at the pixel/buffer level (although I can access image data with it), so I'm considering other options.  SDL maybe or something.

In any case I hope to be a bit more active in the future.

Thanks,
Uhfgood

Ello my name is PAEz....well its Pete, but I like to go by PAEz.
I've joined this forum just so I can download attachments ;), but you make us write an introduction so here it is.
Ive been coding on and off for years and Im still crap.  With one big off period for about 12 years, put it down to...um...a misspent youth
I have a SHOCKING memory and make a thousand mistakes a day, but I love code and nothing is more rewarding than beating myself (how many of you just had a rude thought?).
I LOVE demos.  Demos are what made me want to learn how to code, when I first saw one I thought "now theres an art I might be able to learn"....ofcourse I couldnt ;), but I did learn to code thanks to my first two amazing teachers who persevered through my problems because of my passion.  They were both demo scene guys and altho I cant handle the maths or anything I can code thanks to them....but most of the time Im still a ripper.  But atleast one that never takes credit for others work, Im just having fun.
My first love is JS (especially Chrome and Chrome extensions), but Im looking at Basic (FreeBasic) at the moment as I want somthing to code in for windows stuff and I cant be bothered learning pascal again (shocking memory, forgot it again) so I thought Basic might be fun....someone needs to be sued over the naming of this language, basic it is not....JS is the most basic language.
Anywayz, that should do it.

PS Great site youve got here.
