I'm used to introducing myself each time I start a new forum, so I thought I'd do it here too, even thought it doesn't seem to be done.

I've recently got back into Java after leaving it alone for over a year and working with php, which by the way deteriorated my programming ability, and now I'm back and truly loving it (I'm actually blogging about it here,  *cough* shameless plug). I'm probably not at the level of making a game yet, but I'd really like to simply for the fact that due to it's creative nature it looks fun!

I'm not really sure where I wills start, but I've read all the threads relevant to starting out on this forum and the wiki, so have a nice list of links to peruse this weekend! I'd like to make a game like one of those ones where you have waves of zombies coming at you and you just move left and right and shoot them, I have a good idea of how most of the classes will be, its graphics that puzzle me, but again my list of links will probably cover that.

So, yeah just thought that I would pop in and say hi before I went to bed after spending about and hour resubmitting the activation form then realising I had somehow changed a number in between working it out and typing it  Cranky

Well, hello there! Smiley I think introducing is nice.

You will find thousands of nice topics to learn, to be creative or/and to waste time with. I am currently learning GLSL shader stuff. Taking one step at a time. But it is so much fun. Pure awesome. *g* No really, I could spend all of my free time learning this stuff...

But it is not all about learning. So, have a nice time and enjoy game programming.

Haha, will do. It's what I like to do, programming that is (and learning). I was talking to my friend in my computer science class, telling him about how I was programming a reverse polish notation calculator, to which he thought was incredibly boring and that I should have chosen a more fun project. I just replied with "this is a good learning project, and besides I like it, it' programming!". He just couldn't get it xD

I'm glad I joined up before the current activation form was put in place. I keep hearing stories about it being pretty tough.

I got my start here by posting an applet captcha that displayed letters via XOR mode (animated) on a random b&w field--thus invisible via a screen shot. But it was cracked within a matter of hours.

Now that you are in, welcome! Lot's of great resources and helpful people here. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
 Cool
