I've become less attracted to Aom for quite sometime and I've stoped playing completely for a week, I don't think I want to start playing again, I'm off to play other games and try lean how to create games from C++ using tutorials from http://nehe.gamedev.net/.

---The rising of EXOLAR---

Well Its been 7 years since I talked to my dad and asked him to buy me this game. I didn't know I would play it and continue to play it for 7 years. When I was 9 (2 years after I got the game) I realised I could play with other people online and played my first game: CS_Mytheodia. I was amazed that you could make your own games so I decided to try and figure out how to do it. My second game happened to be Wilderness Survival the once very popular survival game. I learnt triggers by studying Navarone Flames map. When I was 10 I made a few games the first 3 games wern't that good but the 4th game I made was a hit, Cannibal Survival. Then ESOers started noticing who I was and that gave me a confidence boost to make some other maps.

Well anyway I most likely won't go on aom for a while and even if I do I'll probably only be there to talk to the few surviving friend of mine. But I'll still be a bit active in the forums.

Though we had our little incident, i'm really sad to see you leave pal. Though I've been having a really similar story lately, just mine wasn't with programing, i'm learning professional 3d modeling and animation. Well good luck in the future Ex, hope to see you sometime.

Yes... I get the feeling that work isn't quite appreciated to its full potential on aom simply due to the smaller community. Robotentertainment better be makin' aom2...

Lol maybe Exolar can make us AOM2 using his C++ skills.

Minly time issues and such - I can do and make 3d games (basic oens) but an AOM is probably a little far...

I've just saw three of these threads type in OD. Why do we all need to know what everyone is doing? I say, respond like James Hook and make a thread telling what you are currently doing. He said he was going to bed.

Heh, but yeah, it is sad to see people leave. We want to preserve the small community of aomh, especially the oldies like nottud and invent00r, but we keep getting new people. Like I have heard, "the past is past, the present will be the future." All the new people will develop into the new great designers of today, hopefully.

1) I'd like to hope people think that this is a bit more interesting than James's sleep patterns

2) Last time i checked, it was the future that became the present

Yeah sorry bout that aurora...

Mainly time issues and such - I can do and make 3d games (basic oens) but an AOM is probably a little far...
What skills lol I pretty much just started, I'm trying to make a thingo where you click the exe and it comes up with a box that says "do you want to play full screen (yes/no)" and it opens the black window. It accutally requires quite a bit of programming ...

I'm 14 right now and next year I'm doing game programing which I would probably only use gamemaker. But maby after a few years I'll get good and try to make LAN or Multiplayer games.

My dad is a Mining consoltant and he has been programing for over 20 years, he has made some games entirely outta C and he has made toppos with WRML, and hes been really supportive with me learning programming.

and nick I'm sorry but I'm not like you, you may have not played for month and a half but I feel like I'm done with aom.

You're fairly young to start programming.. Such high goals too. Get back to us on any progress, though.

You're incredibly brave for tackling c++ first. I don't even want to touch that and I've got some programming experience. Then again I have no motivation, you do. Go figure.
I say, respond like James Hook and make a thread telling what you are currently doing. He said he was going to bed.
Oh come on if you're going to rag on James Hook at least have a legitimate reason. It was a fad thread paroding Kahotep's leaving thread. Any fad thread spawned from Kahotep is pure gold and possibly involves african women in an erotic matter.

Goodbye Exolar and goodluck.

If you're looking to get into C++ programming and games development you might want to download Visual Studios C++ 2008 Express Edition and get The Game Creators' Game Development Kit(GDK)

Another game development tool/editor you might want to look at is the Unreal Development Kit based on Unreal Engine 3, which will allow you to make stand alone games (rather than levels for existing games).

An alternative/additional language to learn is Lua. Lua is a relatively easy language to learn and is used in games such as Dawn of Fantasy and World of Warcraft.

Lol I left over a year ago, but I'm still posting here and I pull AOM out every now and then. Also- I didn't really dramatize my departure, why should you?

It's hard to abandon this place. Even though I get bored of AoM, it's just a part of the annual mood-cycle. I believe that apply for most of the dedicated scenario designers here.

I joined this place around, what, 5 years ago. I only design on occasion now (The Two Towers has indeed been in development for very long), but I still stick around. It's always cool to see new people, especially those with designing ambitions, join and show off their creativity. I'm still waiting for a game, similar to AoM, with an editor that has as much room for creativity as the one in this game. Maybe you can stay for just a bit longer and watch the release of the next chapter of Legends of Middle-earth (formerly known as Legends of the Third Age)?
