Found out that I get to move to our devs department for a trial run, and if I do good, they will hire me.  Hopefully I dont f**k it up!   I work in customer service for my company now, and I can't wait to get out of it.  You guys have no idea how dumb people can be.

EDIT:  unless you've worked in customer service...

If you think you are going to avoid dumbness with this move, you're in for a treat. Clever people just do dumb in more convoluted ways.

Don't stress! If they give you a project, look through it and learn as much as you can before you start making modifications. Don't be afraid to ask questions, but make sure you put in effort researching your question before going and asking another developer. Take your time and write clean, readable code and don't be afraid to question why something is like it is! Too many times I've found myself thinking that a solution is good solely because a developer with more experience wrote it but it really turns out that it was not a great solution at all. Time and experience in this field *do* make you better, but it doesn't mean a "lowly" entry-level developer can't also have great ideas that rival those of a senior Smiley

Good luck, I'm sure you'll do fine! I've never had any formal education on CS and looking at some of the code from CS degree holders sometimes makes me (and my co-workers) want to bash our heads into a wall Tongue Just goes to show that some people in this field don't know what they're doing and you're probably better at writing code than a lot of people who hold CS jobs right now!

Thanks man!  I'm sure I will have a lot of questions, but I'm gonna do my best.  If it doesn't work out with this trial, I'll just learn more and try again.

Today I took the offline local co-op game and turned it into online co-op game. Smiley (Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime)

Unlike the original version you can play together over the web, but it also allows to map keys according to the preferences - not keys already taken. (so for example all 4 players can move character with WASD) The only problem right now is relatively high delay (up to half second) combined with no client prediction, but I am still working on that.

The best part? This took about 3 hours to implement. I am still surprised why developers of this game didn't added online co-op in vanilla.

I started creating a tower defense game using my own library.
it's getting shape but there is still a lot to do. Smiley
But hey, this will be the first game I will finish.

The shop works but is empty, Just bound the turret to the left-mouse button.
You could not place anything on the walls, target, or the enemy's path.
Also i added a particle explosion on enemy death. Cheesy

Did you reverse-engineer it, in order to modify it? The game looks like a lot of fun and original to me, so can players install your extension in some way?

I also read that the team existed of only one (full-time) programmer, so he maybe didn't have any experience with networking (which led him to polishing the co-op version).? Looking at the ease you're having modding that game, he's probably quite experienced though. Let the conspiracy theories roll...

Code is not secured, but I didn't modified it directly and used external programs approach because it is faster and I just wanted to make it working as fast as possible - client program captures input from the OS, checks if you are using keys associated with keybinds in-game, and - if yes - sends actions to the server. Because only actions and not keystrokes are sent, client and server can map these keys in completely different way.

Server accepts players actions, translates them into gamepad actions on server. It also takes care of streaming, so in fact there is only one instance of game running (all others are watching a game stream sent real-time by server). I am thinking about sending game state and receiving them via in-game modification to reduce bandwidth usage and delays, but this would be something much more complex already.

Searched for a memory leak within my code , turns out there are two sources one being in the core of the graphics system and the other being in a poorly implemented lighting handler , talking about gigabytes here that killed my computer when I tried to run it.

Alright, a ton of things have happened.
First off, I made the SW engine used deferred rendering.
Second, with the help of TheAgentD, I was able to multithread this so that it runs faster.
Third, added spotlights to lightmaps Smiley

I think the left-right turning is too dramatic though. I'll definitely tone it down.

Ok, it's not quite just today, (backstory: I've been working on the first platform game I've done, otherwise, I had made a tetris clone and other simple games)

I spent today refactoring code to switch to an entity system (home grown), and getting the collision detection to work within that system. 

Instead of a collision handler, getting the objects to determine if they will collide with something else on each step.

looks good tho'. maybe too dramatic but only cos' the cursor/crosshair is way off then.

did you test moving the crosshair (operation flashpoint style) ? i'd dig it. very nice if you want to adjust aiming by a tiny bit - it doesn't "move" the screen since you only move the crosshair - up to a threshold before rotating the "camera".

What sort of performance boost do you get from multithreading?

Overall it made the engine run MUCH smoother. The fps is way more stable now. One part of the scene that ran previously at 23 fps runs at 35 now Smiley

I loathe meeting some computer engineer majors. They wear edgy tshirts to let people know they're into coding, and they have absolutely no coding experience. Some think they know java after just barely passing the required Java 1 and 2 classes.  Undecided
Probably because I go to Georgia Southern, instead of Georgia Tech Pointing

Young barista at the coffee shop where I often do my morning coding wants to "learn everything there is to know" about game coding. Shades of Dunning-Kruger! He is very much into playing games, and looking at saving up to attend some tech school specifically for game coding. I tried to suggest a decent community college (more affordable) and free online courses of study (e.g., w3.org tutorials) while he is saving up money to start the private college. Also, the importance of a strong math background.

But he seems mesmerized by the promise of the private school to help graduates find actual work in the industry. He is a nice fellow and was polite, but I think pretty set on his plan and is putting me into a old fogey category of unsolicited advice giving. I assume that as he starts to learn more about programming, he'll get a better concept of just how big the field is and the impossibility of "knowing everything there is to know", and also that there are decent strategies for various degrees of specialization.I don't know if anyone "gets" that trade schools generally fall short with "placement" promises until they actually experience this for themselves.

Just saw DVD of "The Big Short". Highly recommended. I identify (more Dunning-Kruger, but on my part?) with the fellows that are sticking to their long shot strategies despite people telling them they are crazy, in my going all-in on Java procedural audio. I don't expect a huge payout, but advancing my capabilities with it still seems like it could lead to something real.

Strangely, it appears that setting the title on a Frame makes the cursor revert to the default cursor. Shocked??

Yeah your first mistake was going to Southern instead of Tech. Are you hoping to transfer over?
