I can code in Silver Creator and (does the language even have a name? I'm going to call it Silver :)) Scheme, and I have a pretty good knowledge of C. If you give me a basic derived language I can figure it out pretty quickly, and I've played around with C++, C#, Python, and Ruby, and will be taking a Java programming class next semester.

(!) Just had an idea... if you go ahead with this contest maybe I'll make a homebrew GBA or dreamcast game.

THTAT WOULD BE CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I will probally attempt to make a simple Silverlight app in .NET, 'cause SIlverlight works on mac and that would be an easy way to learn tge new programming language :)

It is flash's new competitor.

It is based on .net and in order to compete withh flash is also avaliable on mac.

Unfortunately, the interface designer isn't perfected yet but it looks simple enough.

LOL! sigh (noobs.), knowing what the commands do and actually useing them in junction with each other to make a full working engine are two completly different things. what im saying is, dont be silly you cant program. have you ever even made ANYthing?!

What have I said that gave you the impression that I know commands but not how to make a program? Has anything that I've said on this forum led you to believe that I am a "noob"? How do you know that I "can't program"?

Do I really have to go make something for you just to prove that I know a few languages?

You sir, are the noob here.

Once one has a good understanding of the concepts of programming then it is easy to figure out basic based languages...

*Smells the flames starting*...  ...*Pulls out some minute steak* Mmmm....

I'm not sure that trying to defend yourself with words would help much. Why not just go for it and make his toes curl when you shove it in his socks? I would love to see you make some game like that.

Which seems more appealing?
C#
Code: [Select]
int? i = null;
object o = i;
if (o == null)
    Console.WriteLine("Correct behaviour - runtime version from September 2005 or later");
else
    Console.WriteLine("Incorrect behaviour - pre-release runtime (from before September 2005)");


Or:

Code: [Select]
Dim i As Integer
if i = NULL then
    Messagebox.show("Correct behaviour - runtime version from September 2005 or later")
else
    Messagebox.show("Incorrect behaviour - pre-release runtime (from before September 2005)")
End If

Vb.net takes a lot less work. I'd rather use vb.net, plus I could teach you everything I know.

You're not being very fair to C#... of course vb.net is easier, but it's not as powerful or portable.

I'll take some time off of working on my game and make something truly epic.

I actually quite like C#

It is simple and quite like AS3 (There is also a lot of stuff out for it)

Mist (PS I would like it if you could tell me what you kinow though...)

EDIT: The only real diff between the two is syntax, They both use .NET frameworks and compile to the same language...

True. They both have the same flexibility and portability.

I can teach you every kind of loop, functions, subroutines, cases, variables, string commands, and almost every other kind of vb.net syntax.

P.S. Can you make graphic games in silverlight? I want to try.

Yes you can, however, the engine is sometimes a bit quirky...

For example, to change the x and y co-ordinates of something, you need to call (In C#) "Canvas.SetValue(Object, value);"

Also you need to learn to replace the root xaml <grid> tag with a <canvas> and learn to put the Keydown event in the ROOT user control tag :P

Once I am done making Hurdles (A port of Puddle Jumper), I will send you the code.

Mist (PS The collision detection in Silverlight is a bit pathetic...)

It is not 100% done but here is the source code:

yea, like everything you say is what noobs say. like this :"I'll take some time off of working on my game and make something truly epic. "... yea sure you will, why dont you just finish your game in the first place or post screens.....(cause you havent done anything)

no.... just show you know ONE language. i know sc or gm arent "advanced ::) enough for you but lets see you make something simple in one of those
