hi all,

i'm Waste,  i m more than 30 , i'm from France, i started demo coding a lot time ago on Amstrad and basic / z80 assembly , now i would like to make demoscene effects on pc ,

i used to code with Delphi and VB6 first , then i 'm comming to c++ and x86asm ,

what langage do you advice me to learn to realize sine scroll, rasters , etc...  i will be obliged to start from scratch,  c++ is difficult for me, as far as demoeffects are concerned, it's difficult to find readable source code of sine scrolls , allegro seems to be abandonned for SDL ,

i don't know if i must go further with c++ or learning Blitz Basic or free-pure basic .... if here there is a skillest community in BLitz, perharps it will be easier for me to ask for advises,

++

Hi!

Personally I'd say try to go for C style programming with SDL as C++ just makes things messy sometimes - especially when you're starting out.

There a good community based around SDL and a lot of samples/articles out there :)

freebasic!

once you start too explore the outer limits of freebasic its a natural progresion into c/c++ as almost everything tiny-ptc side can be ported very easily. its powerful easy to use and is a brilliant introduction into more complex languages.

oh and you can also use pointers and control memory in the same way as c if its needed.

 :hi: to the forum STBasic, amrozek, waste

What Programming language to used? Purebasic(Easy) or Freebasic(Medium) or C++ Allergo(Medium) or C++ SFML(Medium) :)

on How hard is whatever programming language I used before which you see (Easy or medium or Hard)...for example assembler(Hard because You need understand all the commands and regsiters!)

They all do good job if you learn em :)

Hey all, New to the scene, very new... didn't know what the demoscene was until about 48 hours ago. Watched a Demo by Razor1911 and fucking loved it. uninstalled my virus scanner and have been downloading 64k's since. I'm an Artist both digital 3d modeling and traditional. I got my first comp when i was like six it was the trs-80 that and a book of basic, i spent hours typing the code in the book to make my screen flash colors and say random text, eventually started writing very simple stuff as I started understanding the code. Shit happened and I lost touch with all of it... 15 years later I went to prison for  :boxer:  an asshole he ended up :crutches: and I got booked. Now here I am enjoying Art and learning how to create.

Hi - have not coded in anger since the late 80's, early to mid 90's...  Used to use stuff like ADA, Fortran, C, and Pascal...  Old school versions...

Was going to try some stuff and found this forum...  Coding has changed a lot since I was a kid... :-)

More soon!

Hey all :)

I'm Dale from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England. I was brought up on Amigas and have had an interest in the demoscene for quite a long time, but only recently have started diving into programming properly. I used to work in IT, but now I am a Computer Science student at Newcastle University, with the intention of turning my love for programming and computer architecture into a professional career.

I took part in the Sundown UK demoparties in 2009 and 2010 as a musician, and hope to return this year! :) The party organiser (rc55, awesome dude!) is who actually referred me to this site.

I am fascinated by audio/visual programming and I'd love to try and pick up some good techniques as seen in some of those classic intros and demos. Recently I managed to code a very simple sine scroller in C/SDL, ported it to OSX and Android using the NDK, and am now porting it to JavaScript/HTML5 as part of my University coursework! :)

Cheers. :)

and i am very interested in demo coding.
i previously already programmed on the c64 and amiga demos, for different groups, but this time is long ago.
 
i learned by chance freebasic know and would consequently much old school intros coden.
i would be happy, if i find here in the forum support for my interest.

Cheers all.

Just checking in. Kenny from Denmark.

Used to be in the demo scene in the 80's (C64) and mostly utilities / tools in the 90's on the A500.

Came by this forum a while back, as someone posted a remake of the A500 classic Supremacy.

Currently I mostly do GUI graphics and GUI layouts etc. and not demos, but figured it'd be nice to keep an eye on this forum.

Cheers, T

Hi everyone,

I ran across this site while looking around on the Internet.  I have been thinking about writing demos possibly on older hardware, but the Raspberry Pi seems like an interesting platform.  Hopefully I will be able to find some free time.

Cheers!
