  • i am working on bankin applications. i am tired of resultsets and rdbms rules and crap like that i have no clue of how to test.

    how can i make carer change to game programming? can i write cool addictive games in java?

    java+cool=hilarity

    game_programming+testing=comedy;

    Game programming is exactly the same, except with the additional headaches of drawing pictures.

    If you get in with a game studio, you do crap menial work for ungodly hours every day until you are sick of it (or are fired).

    If you are indie, it's publish or die-- so you do crap, menial work for ungodly hours every day until you are sick of it (or are bought out).

    No.

    XNA? Yes. Flash? Yes. C++? Yes. Java? No.

    Adobe devil and Microsoft devil. I refuse to submit to them. So only option is learn C++ in better fashion...

    In order to program in Java you must become a comedian first.

    Ok, so... 75% of the video game market is the devil.

    I've changed my mind. Go with stand-up comedy.

    I have the same problem. I found a relatively happy solution, however. I write shitty business apps by day, and hack on games all night. 



  • I find QBASIC is really not so bad for some kind of games. You can also make a game using C and SDL, if it is a more complicated kind, you can do many things with it. Even possibility to use GameBoy Advance and run it on an emulator or real hardware, or NES/Famicom assembly language, you can find many emulators and hardware clones to run these programs. You can also use game environment such as MegaZeux ("P" versions). However, you still can make some games in Java, if that is what you prefer (but I would not think it is best idea to make it with Java).

    If you don't want to make video games, don't know how to make video games, and are not good at making video games-- then you're prime for making video game adaptions of movies.

    I think it sounds like a great idea.  You should definitely get into indie gaming.  It'd be a good move.

    Not good for you, but good for the rest of us.

    I miss the good ol days of writing for the GBA in a mixture of C and assembly.  If your code was too slow you'd get nothing but a white screen.  You'd then have to convert those parts to assembly.  basically C was the skeletal structure and assembly was the guts...

    Some of the most engaging coding that I've ever done was writing a crappy Pong game in NES assembly. It's great for learning some low level concepts in a hands-on way. I still have nightmares thinking about HBLANK and VBLANK interrupts though...

    75% game development going in Flash and XNA is big surprise and small disapointment to me. You break my hope, but I will persever.

    I wager I'm aiming low. It depends on how you measure, but I'd bet Flash alone is more than 75%, all considered.

    Flash look like sure bet. Now how do I find a bakra to give me $249.00??

    There is one guy who has created 401K eater website. Lot of nice story telling on that site about how he scams people from Nigerai.
