hmm.. it's been a while since i last posted here, and I have learned a lot. Lets see, what have I done since! Well not much sad to say. The truth does hurt, but unfortunately school work was the only programming I have accomplished since last post. I have all but abandoned my last projects that are not well coded and were not object oriented, although I am going to cut some of the code out for future projects, because what can I say, I'm lazy. I have been looking curiously at an SDL demo my friend made and when this semester is over (next week) I plan to contribute my own 2 or 3 cents towards a working game demo. Our project (he doesn't like me to say OUR, as I haven't contributed yet) will be a simple role-playing game. His plans of the game are for monsters to be walking around and come attack you. My idea for a first game is more of a Final Fantsy, Dragon Warrior, traditional style of RPG. Easy comparison: he wants Crystalis, I want Final Fantasy 1. I have been having some trouble codeing my homework, but I have a very good understanding of what I want to do. The only problem occurs when I have to write the code. All else I that I have been doing was getting an old DEC Multia to run and toy around with that. I am also interested in creating databases, just because I took a database course this semester. Primary goals for the summer: SDL game demo, play with php, play with DB's.
