Amateur Programmers

Post by dnichola » Sun Jul 31, 2005 4:54 pm

I guess that many people who use this web site like me used to write their own programs and games at home.

None of mine were good enough to publish (I did send a couple to Electron User but they were rejected) but I'm proud of them all the same.

I was wondering if there's a website where amateur programmers like myself can share their home written software?

Probably the 8BS.COM PD library would be a good place to start.

Dan,

Finally, I've uploaded your stuff (check the news page!)

Thanks again for choosing to share everything, and for all the effort you put into the documentation and ensuring compatibility with BeebEm, ElectrEm etc ! :D

The supermarket game is class!

You know, this would make a cool screen-saver!

Update: I named my supermarket after our local "ASDA", but considering 37 customers spent £10,347.93, maybe I should've named it after our local "Sainsbury's"! This really would make a good screen-saver!

Update2: Everything is going wrong, Wednesday and only £164.19 taken at the tills so far - cheap-flints! :-)

quite the treasure trove there. like a long lost PD disc - very professionally put together :D

the Invatron room demo looks most tantalising so far - not tried the editor yet. looks rather Codename Droid-ish 8)

Yeah, the Invatron 2 stuff was quite good looking! It would be cool to see this game finished out.

.
You could see a real progression in programming skill from the early stuff on the disc to the later stuff. Nice one!

Thanks to everyone for your kind comments. I'm dead chuffed. I was in two minds about putting this together as I didn't think my old programs would generate much interest.

I was thinking about finishing Invatron 2. I've still got the source code and sprite files. However, I can't remember what the game was meant to be about but it was definitely heavily influenced by Codename Droid. If I ever finish this I'll pass it on to Dave.

By the way, over £10,000 in the supermarket is definitely a record (unless you've opened this in Knightsbridge). I should have included a high score table.

Cheers everyone.
