Re: A oldschooler trying to learn to code.

Hi! Oldschooler here too. Exactly the same age, background (pc demo scene enthusiast) and knowledge level (or lack thereof). Start with Chili's framework immediately if you want to learn how to program and do most of the stuff yourself (loading images into memory and so on). If you know how to progr...

Re: CHILI! Look what I made!

Thanks for the kind words. The love-craving attention whore inside me is happy ;) When I saw your Fart-Annoyed game it motivated me to publish my project on the forum asap cause I was afraid your 2-hour project might end up better than my 8-month project :lol: Now, I'm going to find your latest fram...

CHILI! Look what I made! (finished arkanoid clone)

Finally I pulled the plunge on this one :) My version of Arkanoid is ready for your criticism. PRO TIP: if you want to compile the code and run it from Visual Studio, make sure you put all the media files (sounds, fonts, images) in the c:\media folder. Otherwise the program will crash. Features: - L...

Re: Sneak Peek at 3D Fundamentals Intro Video

Brace yourself, sh*t just got real. This is it though, was looking forward to this. The prerequisites do look intimidating however. I guess now is the time to quickly catch up on a few neglected subjects so we're ready. As long as you keep it as simple and as accessible as possible it should be just...

Re: Playing with PutPixel calls

@Chili Well we must be kindred spirits after all, since I'm working on an arkanoid clone myself since I finished my snake game earlier this year and posted it here ;) Still quite some work to do, working on the in-game level designer right now. When it is finished I'll post it here of course. @ OP: ...

Re: Snake Game - finished game

Don't know why I didn't try tasm :/ Got it to work, pretty neat indeed ;). I remember a few rare games back in the day used their self made dos extender (pmode by Thomas Pytel for ex.). They required 600 kb of base memory, and didn't even allow the use of himem.sys. I can tell you, it was a challeng...

Re: Snake Game - finished game

Playing around with the pc speaker from what I can read :) What compiler do I use to compile it? I loved asm because it was easy to debug back in the day. You had only two options: 1) the code worked fine 2) you needed to do a hard reset of your pc (best way to learn to make backups) Unfortunately t...

Re: Snake Game - finished game

Hi guys, thanks for the fast reply & the encouraging words! I watched only about the first 15 tuts of the basic course. I came across your youtube videos a few years back when I was looking for information on Direct X and loved them. I'm looking forward to watch your videos on the specialized instru...

Snake Game - finished game

Hi Guys! This is my first post here :) Thanks to Chilli's cool tutorials and super practical framework I was able to make a complete snake game, just as in the old DOS days :mrgreen: Features: - 5 levels - menu system - 4 difficulty levels (game speed) - customize-able in the source code (.exe & sou...
