Greetings dizphunkt,

I've noticed an increasing number of audio demos and edits recently - your productions will fit right in.

Just hooked up with you and yours today, well yesterday my time.  I'm based in Idaho, USA and used to program in cobol, fortran, apple basic.  However that was in my teens, went directly to machine code for the speed.  After that had money problems so concentrated on work and got way outdated.

Now I'm 40+ and currently hooked up with Code::Blocks, OpenGL and SFML, on a MSwindows system.

I consider myself an intermediate in C++, and a beginner on all the rest. 

I found most of the games I loved died out and was replaced with shadows so decided to recreate the game play myself, heh heh heh  :inspired: :crutches:, though I have the concepts I lack the technicality.

Although I seldom have net access(about 8 hrs a month), I am looking forward to spending allot of it here.

Hello Derold!   :hi:

I started making games for the same reason you did. I had the concepts all ready as well, but now that I got enough experience to realise them, most turned out to be more like elaborate tech engines, which are lacking story or purpose. I think it's a left/right brain thing, once I got my brain structured to do the logic my creativity circuits got all unwired...!

That's why the demoscene is such a perfect match, it doesn't need to have story or purpose!  ;D

Demoscene is perfect if you want to concentrate in 3D Graphics and if you are not bothering about AI, Network , Physics, Gameplay Engine and strong C++ skills :D
The demoscene will never die, never!

Speaking from my own experience of Cobol, that would be tough!

Hello everybody! I'm kind of new to the demoscene although I've been watching some prods for about 2 years. It's a friend of mine that first introduced me to pouet.net. I've been coding for a couple of years now and about a month ago I thought it would be nice to participate to a demoparty but there aren't a lot in the region of Montreal, Canada (where I live). Two days ago I heard there was a little demoparty that was going to happen in november in Montreal so me and my friend decided to participate in the compo. I know a lot to programmation, but I've never done a demo before so I have a month to learn the basics and this is pretty much why I'm here. I hope I'll learn a lot with you guys and have a lot of fun!
For now, peace!  ;)

Greetings lachose1,

Demos are easy to get the hang of, but writing a winning demo is a real challenge. I'm sure you'll get the help you need to turn some heads at the party.

Hey Everyone,

Happened upon this site from google, I'm interested in learning some more about the demoscene, particularly for PC. I found the Kkrieger 96K game demo very inspiring when I came across it years ago, and I love games, graphics and high performance computing.

I have a degree in physics, and an honours degree in computer science with a few years industry experience in software development, mainly in computer science research and other research fields.

I have been looking for a creative outlet in line with my other interests, and the demoscene is really inspiring so I thought I would take a closer look.

Thanks for having me!

Hello modi!  :hi:

A degree in physics is pretty usefull not to mention interesting, consider me jealous. Looking forward to see some of your work, be sure to check out the challange!

Yes indeed!  You seem to be perfectly qualified to make demos :)

With your physics degree, maybe you'll end up making stuff like this;

That Demo was Mind Blowing and I did rather Code Dark Physics of Darkbasic pro than coding in C++(Harder to do them!)  LOL

Welcome to the forum Derold. Looking forward to your first demo in COBOL!  ;D

 :hi:

Sorry, but I have forgotten most of what I knew at the time.  And worse yet I haven't been able to figure out how to load those six inch floppies into this laptop  :telloff:.

But thanks all for the welcome. and I am concentrating on 3D graphics, then some basic AI, then maybe sound :).  I include in the 3D graphics:  animations and controls to move in the 3D space, similar to Might and Magic 7 (p.s. my camera functions are already smoother  :updance:, though not as complete)
