|Programming / Re: Your Favorite Java IDE? by worldbest(m): 2:33pm On Dec 17, 2013|
I'm sure your project diary, logic notes etc involve the creation of a number of files (except there is something I don't know) which you can do in a regular IDE. Some IDEs have test libraries/plugins already integrated and I know most Jetbrain IDE allow you specify alternative folders as source directories. So..? Anyways, Its not wrong to not use an IDE, so ride on...abi your RAM low?

You are spot on. Cartoon-like characters in realistic environment would be awkward. By the way, that cartoon happens to be my favorite on CN

Using a custom game engine (especially one with no GUI) when the overall knowledge of game development on this thread is still basic is a wrong idea. Top game studios use already recognized engines like Unreal and Unity not because they can't develop theirs but because its cheaper and convenient.
If @dueal decides to ditch this project, y'all are screwed. Use an engine everyone (those here and those that would come in the future) can relate with.

Okay then. Ride on!

I was loving the 'Goat Story' but I don't think I would like to play a game where a goat kills humans and tries to save his pregnant mate. I think these goat theme has no historical backing. It has nothing people can relate with (except for the fact that we eat goats). I'm sure you don't want your 'Next Gen' game coming out of Nigeria to be about goats revolting. If you wanna invest 3 years of your time, then I believe the sango, amadioha etc story should be picked. You don't have do go into much details. For example, You could have a plot where 'Sango's sends you (the player) to different villages to help them solve their challenges (bush babies, madam kiokio etc). Those villages are the levels. If you are able to complete just a playable level, release the game to the public, get funding if possible and then improve the story and build more levels. Start simple. Avoid bloated stories.

Lol. You go fear "reference image".
|Programming / Re: Game Development: Next Gen 3d PC Game Team by worldbest(m): 2:36pm On Oct 25, 2013|
Since the goat story is loved by all, I suggest we begin work on the story and game play. There's no need wasting time on the gow-like story.

This is awesome. Cool sketch

Jivi: Here is a new game story idea. I think it can be improved upon. However, let me know what you think. We can mix in Nigerian elements
LOL, I like this story. But still think the Sango,Amadiorha etc is better.

I suggest you forget the idea of using a proprietary engine for now. Just use Unity

I might have taken things too personal and by so doing ignored some of phenom's points. Let's just let OP continue with his work. Its a new day. Super Eagles must win

Exactly my thought. But I get his point (I think)

Just see this one. How am I leading him astray? So you want me to tell him he cant do it. I do not know if he would be able to complete it (I have made this clear) but no one should discourage him. Someone says he wants to take a shot at game engine development and you guys are here telling him he hasn't got the knowledge to do so because he didn't sound technical in his initial post. Many of you here cannot reason for yourselves.
|Programming / Re: 3D Animation Programming Join The Team by worldbest(m): 1:39pm On Oct 12, 2013|
Well, @PhenomenonVFX's reply was exhausting. Its nice that you wrote all that to prove how 'intelligent" and "experienced" you are to question and mock the OPs knowledge. Just so you know I do not care about your CV. I might be ignorant but I would never question someone's knowledge just to make them feel incapable. I'd rather encourage them and let them decide if they want to continue their project or instead go acquire knowledge before commencing.
However, I haven't said he was hating on the OP. But I am against anyone who questions the OPs knowledge just to mock him. If you won't join him, then just observe.
Along the line he (@csharpjava) will find out what and what he needs to learn, put the project on hold, learn those things and move forward. Do you think he isn't reading relevant resources as he progresses? Its nobodies business if he decides to start the project and learn as he proceeds. There can be many version of this project. This is his project, you can give suggestions but don't tell him to stop because he doesn't understand how images are represented in memory.
There is absolutely nothing wrong if a programmer burns out trying to build the impossible. At least, he gets to acquire new knowledge even if he fails.
Do not be discouraged. Don't be scared to fail. Failure is good. Continue with your project and when you find that you can't proceed, stop and do some research and start again. Find resources and read them as you proceed. They might see what you are doing as crap, that is because most know nothing about the low level aspects of graphic framework (directx etc) which I think you are interested in.
|Programming / Re: 3D Animation Programming Join The Team by worldbest(m): 9:52am On Oct 12, 2013|
When someone is trying to do something you think is "impossible", you should try to encourage that person and provide help in any way you can. Dont tell that person how you think they can't do it. If someone creates a post and says he wants to develop and OS, some shallow and lazy minded people here would begin to castigate that person instead of helping. This is how to reply to a post where someone wants to do the "irrelevant" or "impossible". http://www.quora.com/How-do-I-write-an-operating-system
Moderator, stop hiding my post...I ki**ll you!
|Programming / Re: 3D Animation Programming Join The Team by worldbest(m): 8:51am On Oct 12, 2013|
When you created that animation of yours and posted on NL what were you actually looking to achieve? Whether you admit it or not, you wanted to impress people (I was impressed) and also get constructive criticism. So there is nothing wrong with coding to "impress" people as far as you have the time. Motivation to learn can come in any form.
You keep talking about the OP getting appropriate knowledge before he ventures into something as difficult as this. But I think you are dead wrong, he is not trying to sell the end product so he can definitely learn as he codes. You will never know how truly difficult it is to convert theory to codes till you attempt to do it so I think the OP is on point no matter how naive he sounds.
I browsed through your 300+ posts to see how vast your knowledge of programming is but I was very disappointed. You are in no position to question someone's ability to venture into a difficult terrain based on their knowledge because I can deduce that you are not better than the OP (programming wise). You love to argue, that is why you do more religious (whose god is better) posting than even the python (which is the only language you seem know..its not a bad thing at all) or animation (which is cool) you know.
I suggest you let the OP be. He is not out to impress you. No doubt, you know how graphics works but you just know the theory. Since you are this knowledgeable, I think you should begin to contribute to Blender (which is what you use) since you know Python.
Its very hypocritical for a graphics/animation artist to attack another person who he thinks is starting a project to impress people because that's is what you do. Especially if you aren't a professional. So yeah, you can pass for an hypocrite (moderator I didn't insult him).

So he should just sit down and do nothing because the task pass him power. If I am not helping then what am I supposed to do? How can you guys help him? You have nothing to offer, no ideas, no references or resources just negativity. One of your Nairaland ITK god says something with sweet grammar and then his clowns follow. I personally don't think he or a bunch of guys online can develop something like Unity or UDK but they can definitely build a functioning game engine. A lot of single developers built their own engines with DirectX or OpenGL at the time when UDK or Unity was not available to small developers. If you limit yourself, don't do so to others.
|Programming / Re: 3D Animation Programming Join The Team by worldbest(m): 5:22pm On Oct 09, 2013|
A lot of guys are waiting for this guy's project to fail so they can say 'I told you so'.
@OP keep doing what you are doing. You will learn a lot from this project. Whether you succeed or fail, your level of understanding of 3D and graphics in general will surpass most of the block heads discouraging you. Instead of encouraging him, they want to pull him down. Typical Nigerian character. Lazy people. All they know how to do with programming is to seek clients that will pay them N25k to build 5 page websites.
|Programming / Re: 3D Animation Programming Join The Team by worldbest(m): 8:28pm On Oct 07, 2013|
If you really want to write a game engine, why waste time working with just standard classes of C# or Java. I suggest you just start working with DirectX or OpenGL. Unless you want to learn the low level workings of those frameworks
|Programming / Re: 3D Animation Programming Join The Team by worldbest(m): 5:15pm On Oct 05, 2013|
Stop shouting. You are not making sense. I am more inclined to accept PhenomenonVFX arguments, but yours? You are just hating. You can try to insult me, that is if you know where to begin.
