This computer engineering/applied computer science student has: - Coding experience. I have been working with C, C++, C#, Java, Javascript, TorqueScript, UnrealScript and Visual Basic. - Mapping experience. I have been playing around with: Hammer, CryEngine Sandbox, CryEngine 2 Sandbox 2, FarCry 2, The Elder Scrolls Construction Set, Fallout 3 G.E.C.K., UDK, Torque 3D Engine, Unity. I don't recall ever fully completing a map though. I also enjoy making small ArmA II and III missions for private (co-op) use. - Blender experience. I can make meshes and I have a basic understanding of animation.

Today I've finished work on and debugging of a 'tile engine' class with a most basic (and essential) functionality.  Made in C++ and with a couple of functions from DarkGDK (for loading and displaying the tiles), this is going to serve as a base for my first 'game'. This game is going to be a simple (robot)zombie shooter, mainly so I can learn how game programming works. A friend is going to make the graphics for the game.. which is great, because I totally suck at creating visual stuff.

Now that I've achieved my goal of creating a 'working' tile engine, the next thing I'd like to work on is a level editor, so other people (especially the friend I mentioned, the other part of the 'team') already can try to make levels while I'm going to program the game itself. But damn, learning Windows programming is giving me headaches and i can't seem to find any good tutorials. So if you know a good site/book on Windows programming, please let me know! Either C++ or C# is fine by me, although I'll have to learn C# from scratch.

Anyway, just posting this because I'm pretty happy I finished work on the most basic parts of my engine, in fact, it is my first serious C++ class I've ever finished!

Hehe thank you. I've decided to make a quick level editor prototype with DarkGDK. Not as pretty as a real windows application, but it's (hopefully) going to do the job until I know how to do Windows programming.
