Hi Absurdist, you don't need to be a demoscener - just to have an interest in realtime effects. :)

I'm a C++ games programmer with some experience in DirectX10,  a  huge fan of the demoscene for most of my life, inspired when I used my Amiga when I was a small lad, playing cracked games, watching the intros.

Recently I've been making the adaptation to demo coding from generic 3D programmer: learning the techniques, optimizations and practises employed by groups.
I've been studying IQ's frameworks, Conspiracy groups aDDict2 engine and Farbrauch's altona/werkkzeug4 - which are currently over my head in terms of detail.

I can code a game/most 3D techniques...Given enough time, just making this jump to employing these demo styles and having a deeper knowledge of optimising, mathematics and programming practises is proving to be quite challenging. IQ has proved to be a great help in understanding these methods, but there's little else except my own exploration to help myself.

Hence me joining this board, I hope to talk to others who are in the biz, bang some heads and learn. I've lurked for a while here and it seems like a great community.

If there are any essential details or information that any beginner demo coder must see/learn, please throw it my way.

I thought I'd contribute initially a bit more than with a standard welcome, so I've made a topic over in general.

Thanks

Hi Vordux, nice introduction :)  I really hope that you'll enjoy yourself here.

There will be a new coding challenge soon, they are usually quite interesting ways of practicing your techniques and maybe winning a prize for your effort too!

Hello everyone!

I stumbled upon dbf by searching for information on coding crack intros. I'm in my third year of college and studying C# for now, I also work part-time as a programmer at an IT company, and lately I've grown bored of the applications I've been working on. They all look stale, like every other Windows software product.

I want to learn a new programming language in my spare time and find out more about the methods of creating cracktros/demos, I've been looking at them for years and I've always wondered how they were made.

Cheers!
