Introduction? or maybe Reintroduction? Deja vu.
« on: May 24, 2009, 08:05:14 PM »
Well my name is Dreadstead! Really! Thats my name honest......
Nah not really,  its a mount, the name of a horse in the game World of Warcraft.

Well as some people may or may not know I used to play world of warcraft but decided to quit before I entered high school, my character was a level 70 paladin on the realm of ursin...

Well enough of that. I am now a sophomore at my vocational high school my vocation being The world of information technology also known to many as computer repair though the field is broader than that now with so many sub fields.

My likes are swimming both recreational and competitve, jogging, pizza, chinese food, computers obviously, why is this sounding like a dinner plate with a side order of exercise right after? and funny enough thinking I like thinking of complex situations with many different outcomes.... and some possible solutions. (Which may not always be the best solutions)

Dislikes are: thinking hard (Wow I like to think yet hate thinking hard what a hipocrate I am folks), math (see dislikes are: thinking hard), programming  (Add math + thinking hard + lazyness/time constraints and you get why I can't program yet and why I dislike attempting to learn. I'll turn programming into a like someday.

Well anyways how I got here I at one point wanted to learn to program and was looking to learn how to program an rpg (worst first project ever if you want to learn) I tried to learn a bit of python and whatnot, and soon hit a brick wall at that than found rpg maker xp one thing led to another and I started playing the games
 
Played games a couple of games like master of the wind and ethereal dreams and found myself staring at the old quintessence page like 5 chapters back played it and fell in love with the story and every couple of weeks or so I checked on the website for new chapters

and I think I made my first post when Do you remember my lullaby was released kinda tugged at my heart strings a little so today after a few months of being gone doing checking this website every 2-3 weeks I decided to make this post after logging in.
 
So umm here I am and Hi

You know, for a sophomore, you certainly seemed freakishly knowledgeable from the bit of conversation I had with ya. :P Good stuff, you're well on your way.

Welcome, and thanks for the detailed introduction! I do remember seeing you from quite a while back, so you're technically one of the oldies, heheh. Glad ya enjoyed the projects, and good luck with making your game! Programming something like a RPG from scratch is certainly not something suited for a start-up project, so I think you found a suitable tool for it.  :reivsmile:

I guess I enjoy some of the programming theory and whatnot but just can't deal with how verbose programming languages are too many commands to remember  :reivsmile:

edit: (though if I like it or not i'm going to have to learn a programming language if I want to get into the field of computer security and will have to ( see forced to learn due to college classes) a programming language prolly c# so might as well try and get a start on it while in high school.

Meh easier said than done.

Heheh yeah, it takes a while. Oh, by the way I don't think you made a post when Lullaby was released, this thread was your first. :P

Hello, Dreadsteed! Semi-late welcome, but oh well...

Since Vasha doesn't seem to be around, I'll steal his job again and warn you of a talking, monkey-loving, pretzel hating, pastry that goes by the name of Muffin. Stay away from him it if you do not wish to be forcibly married.

P.S. World of Warcraft FTW!

At least I'll be feeling something
