I definitively did NOT find this Thread because i got addicted to get all these damn batches ! Errr..
Anyhow my name is Oliver, and i am kinda a contradictory person.. which in itself makes no sense !
I'm from Germany but have lived the last 9 years in Denmark, so i dunno if i'm a German or Dane.
I love philosophy, and critically thinking in general. And use a lot of time in discussions with people about everything.
I got into gaming fairly late.. my parents dint buy me a GameBoy Color until i was 9 (I still got it !)
But i played on consoles at friends before that of course !
All started for me with the NES Super Mario and some Space Style Racing game.
I love PS1 and PS2 ! And the Xbox but only for one game HALO ! The original ! Damn that game blew me away when i first played it! Did it in Co-Op so cool so cool !
Some all time Favorites: <-(There are many, here are some)
Warcraft 3 (DotA)
Anything with Yoshi
GTA Vice City
Heroes of Might & Magic 3
I always wanted to create games, but wasn't motivated enough to do it and hated programming.
Some months ago i started playing on a WoW private server (Vanilla) and wanted to create a Bot for it. I Started programming in AutoIT and got fairly Good at it after about a week. I then realised that i now liked programming
The challenge in thinking of ways to figure things out is what really attracted me to it.
I got bored of making the WoW bot (After i got banned for using it LOL :D)
And though Hey.. Let's make a Game !
I downloaded a few engines, Not only 2D but also stuff like Unity 3D and the UDK.. But i just dint want to start with all that sh*t now because i am moving soon and starting my Bachelor on AsiaStudies -Indonesia. (I don't necessarily see myself having any use of this, but in Denmark you get Money for studying. So 3 of my Friends and I are going to Move in together and it's gonna Rock!)
So i found a Blog about Engines to Use and it listed this one :D Or well the Classic one anyway
I hope to create some cool games, i got tons of ideas and fairly good Artsy skills.
Another project i am working on is my Competitive Gaming Website where people can play cs 1.6 against each other for money. So i hope that one also lifts of in the next few months :)
Anyhow ill be online here a lot now, Reading the Manual/Tutorials and ask the sh*t out of you guys because i absorb knowledge like a Sponge !
Hope we have fun ^^ Here is Where i Found You Guys !
