2014: The year of indie gaming

Maybe I'm optimistic and I want to think I picked the right time to quit my job and recklessly swan dive into the world of indie gaming.

decided to teach my 12-year-old step-brother how to code.
I taught him some of variables, classes, and functions today and a whole lot about if statements. He took off with all of that and now he's making circles move around the screen in different ways, stopping and starting at different locations. Honestly, i'm impressed.

When I was 12 I made a Final Fantasy VII fan site with flame text that was hosted on Geocities. I had never even played FFVII at the time.
He's got me beat.

I was making a website too, with absolutely no theme. I went to some website that had Javascripts and DHTML or something, and I would just copy and paste the code into my site to make it look nicer.

I went to a summer camp or something beforehand where they showed us the basics, and I chose #00ff00 as the background color since I wanted the f's to be in the middle. And now I use that color for the hero in all my programmer art.

Exactly the same here, though I took the copy/paste to a higher level, to a point at which Google actually took notice.

I use circles and 000000 because those are the easiest. I do what's easy when it comes to things that don't actually matter. I'm a lazy bastard :P

When I got to be around 14, and a little better at making websites, I started stealing wallpapers, slapping on shitty text with too much bevel, and then pretending I made them. The things we do when we're young. :)

When i was 13/14 ish I made a Javascript/html car game where you hovered over mouse buttons to change lanes and avoided incoming cars. Ahhh, the good old days. Then I realized all the free online games id play at school and at home where made in flash. That is when I made the switch to javascript to as3.... well as2 at the time.

When I was 11 I made my first flash game, ingeniously entitled "Mr. Shoot". Tracing was all the rage back then for people who couldn't draw. I traced a guy with a gun from behind, and there were targets you had to shoot with a mouse click. I was so excited that it made it into the portal. At 12 I spent most of the year polluting the flash forum with around 6000 posts of crap and faggotry, and then at 13 I made two games which are still up on my profile. Then puberty hit in, and I haven't created anything since !

Oh man, I remember being a snot-nosed brat when first learned about online forums. A couple years ago I went looking through my first posts... that was depressing.

When I was 10 I used to fuck around in AS2 after my brother introduced me to newgrounds. I also pretended that whatever I made was good and was quite a prick about it. Ah the things that I did..

Pretty much me. I used to make websites about Diablo 2 when I was 11/12 on "ExPage", and would copy code from DynamicDrive for crazy effects.

I find it mildly interesting that pretty much everyone goes through a phase of intentionally speaking like an idiot somewhere around early puberty, and then we all eventually converge towards writing in normal language like normal people (albeit some later than others). Geokureli I love how you spelled who as "hu", I've never seen that before. It's quite entertaining looking through your posts.

I have to say, there is a huge difference between how much I wasted the time of adults on the internet with my kiddy shenanigans, and how little my time is wasted nowadays as an adult by kiddies on the internet. I'm not sure if it's because not as many kids come to the flash forum nowadays, or if it's because I just never click threads with stupid titles, or visit any parts of the internet that are heavily populated by kids altogether. Both of them, I guess.

Shameless self-promotion with shite AS2 questions

What's weird is most of my old, completely crap posts have been removed. Not complaining or anything, but yeah...
Anyway, I was an absolute prick when it came to people judging my content.
If I could go back in time and catch myself writing one of my old comments or posts, I would probably punch myself in the face.

I guess it's because I joined after puberty, but I've never had idiot posts like that. I did have posts asking things that were way above my head, like making a tower offense game and crap.

Egg wtf lol, getting reported everywhere

Holy hell, it's been a while, hasn't it?
I took a hiatus from everything remotely connected to civilization for two years, but other than that, what the hell happened? I can't remember what I was doing in that timespan...

Nope, wasn't me. I just started a topic and it got semi-derailed. Such was the way of the Flash forum, back then.

Being a newcomer here, you probably remember the dumb questions I posted when I first joined, only two years ago...

I wasn't even new to Flash then, however. When I first started writing AS in Flash (which was maybe five years ago), I was a 100% programming illiterate (as opposed to 99% at the moment). I didn't even have any idea how for loops worked. Following a Flash 8 book with lousy AS1ish tutorials didn't teach me much...

There's nothing stopping me from uninstalling it an hour after I install it...there should be some setting in chrome to prevent deleting or editing options for x hours that can't be removed.
