The Official Introduce Yourself Thread

  • So ... "Introduce Yourself" ... Something besides "hello, world" I suppose!

    As you can see (@MikeDobson), my name is Mike, and I live in the U.S.

    "Hello, my name is Mike, and I'm obsessed with a computer game."

    I've been programming computers of one kind or another since Reagan was still president (not that those two facts have anything to DO with one another) ...

    And to further "date-stamp" myself, my very first "computer" was "Timex-Sinclair 1500" !

    It just occurs to me as I'm writing this, that my very first ever "complete" program, was in fact a very basic (no "splitting" etc. but did have "graphics" of a sort) "Blackjack" (or "21" if you prefer) game! I thought of it myself, did it ALL by myself - as opposed to modifying code from books or magazines, etc. (that was the way a lot of "hobbyists" spread code in those days).

    So far, I'm sort of using C2 as a "rapid" (relative term, there) "prototyping" tool, attempting to "re-create" an old "computer game" that's even older than my personal experience; maybe I'll get around to a "Work in Progress" and/or "Screen Shot" forum post eventually.

    It's taking me a bit to get "past" the whole "no coding required" type of "paradigm" (especially since I'm more familiar with "coding") espoused by C2; I'm seeing (though various tutorials and my own experiments) that it requires, if not explicit "coding," quite a few bits of rather "specialized knowledge" (which look suspiciously like things most learn w/"traditional" coding) in order to get very far past the simple(r) templates and "game genres" that the creators obviously had in mind for C2. Some 3rd-party plugins are already simplifying things tremendously, especially those by rexrainbow !

  • Hey!

    We've been working with Construct 2 since a couple of months ago. I'm specially happy with the software cause i've been able to easily build a couple of games, with my team and by myself for web and mobile and it's been wonderful. One of the best parts of Construct 2 is its community, surrounded by people always willing to help and share knowledge with the others always in good mood.

    It's not my first day but i've noticed looking my badges that didn't introduce myself here, so... here i am, or.. here we are!

  • Hi everyone!!

    I have been mulling around an idea for a fun game/learning experience for my students (I'm an English teacher). Since the summer is here and I don't have much to do, I thought I would start it...and here I am. I found that this is one of the better, easy to use tools out there and am currently downloading it.

    Heard that the community is strong and helpful...and that's what I'm betting on...I gonna need lotsa advice

    Wish me luck!!

  • Hi everybody!

    I'm new in this amazing world, but I have seen everyone on this community helps with heart.

    I'll try to do it too.

    And, excuse my english if there was any grammatical fault XD.

    Greetings from Spain!!
