Introduce Yourself Thread!

Recommended Posts

Hi! Alatar here. I'm a 27-year-old programmer from Argentina. It's been a really long time since I visited the 2d-rpg-mmorpg community, but i've been on Eclipse and several other websites a long time ago. Some even may recall a Quest System that I made 6 or 7 years ago that were used by quite a few games and engines back then. I won't even look at its code now as i'm sure its pretty dated haha.

 

But you know I got the nostalgic attack yesterday and spent this last few hours checking old files/projects and visiting this and several other forums (I guess the community kind of split apart?). I'm thinking on re-starting a project from back then and I was looking with interest the open source .NET engines, specially Orion. Anyways I'm happy to be here, and happy to see that this engines are still going as they're the reason why I started to code.

 

:)

that's what ya get when you release a quest system that's still being used, well parts of it anyway :P

 

Really? lol. In that case I guess that the concept behind it was interesting enough to overcome its coding  :P

 

By the way your Orion+ engine looks really interesting. I'm checking it now and the fact that its in VB.net with SFML and its also opensource is really good. Amazing work on it man.

 

On the other hand, @jcsnider, Intersect has a ton of potential and I see that you've been working on it constantly for a long time now. Kudos to you sir! Was it build from scratch?

 

I have to relearn a lot of things, 7+ years feel like forever now haha

look good, check the quest system xD

 

xD Oh god i recognize that code. The horror.

 

PS: Side-question. This type of engines weren't based on OOP right? :P

I'm a veteran of pen and paper roleplaying from Germany, 49 years old.

I had been running a Neverwinter Nights PW-server for almost ten years, hosting, building, modding, scripting and all the while trying to tell interesting stories.

Due to the recent attempt to re-monetize NWN by the new publisher I was looking for an alternative and stumbled into Intersect Game Engine.

 

It shows great potential and the devs seem to work hard to improve further.

I am now getting used to the editor and trying to find out whether the event system will allow complex storytelling and dialogues.

 

Cheers,

U.

Never introduced myself so here goes. 

 

I am from the Seattle area, 28 years old and work in the cannabis industry. 

I play video games. I wanted to make one, and then I found this forum after checking out a lot of engines.
