Tony Weatherford here,

I am a 30 year old male from SC USA.
I became interested in Game making since i took a "BASIC" programing class in high school.
I ran it to its limits!!! I made a fully functioning space ship game using only keyborad characters! the space ship looked like this and blinked dif colors on a black screen....   <++++> and alternated this
                                           <====>
Any way...
high school lead to girls and life and Jobs and I left my long time passion behind.

always wanted to get back into it, now that I am married and settled down. ;).. I start building "template" based websites about a year ago rekindling the flame of computer technology. messed around with "Visual Basic" for a while a few months ago... but couldnt get what i wanted out of it.

I found a comment from "Emanuele Feronato" on a forum one day and stared following on facebook. verry good stuff guys here is the link.

So, I don't usually state my real name on an open forum but since this is an Official introduction, I'm Karis.

I purchased Construct to make games for people that are ill and undergoing treatment that requires them to be immobile because they are hooked up to machines for many hours each week. I wanted to give them something to look forward to while undergoing life saving treatments; to take their minds off their worries, if just for a little while. I myself, have chronic kidney disease and sometimes the sheer number of hours spent receiving medical care or waiting at the doctor's office can seem unending. I wanted to make a difference for people in similar situations as I.

As of late, my condition seems to have finally caught up with me and even though I still have plans to make more games, I have not had as much time to learn as I would like as I have more pressing matters to attend to. I want to post questions to help expedite my game making skills but sometimes think that my questions may seem silly or I might end up asking too many questions, so I find myself just lurking on the forum or attempting to learn with the tutorials that are available.

So, that's it in a nutshell. I would like to thank Ashley, Tom and Kyatric for all the help with my questions thus far. And to those of you who I did not mention, that offered help, my thanks to you as well.

On a brighter note, I love all the badge incentives! Such a great idea and lots of fun! Thanks! MeJustMe2011-12-08 01:39:48

Greetings,

I am a college professor, mathematician by training but I occasionally teach computer science as well, in particular, Introduction to Java Programming and also Video Game Programming. I used to teach the Video Game course completely in Java, but next semester I am hoping to incorporate Scirra in some significant way.
