Title: Tgames - Cas n Sally n ?
Post by: Tgames on Jan 30, 12, 12:43:11 PM
Hi - I am Cas, I have been a programmer for about 28 years now starting out on large IBM mainframes as a systems programmer using Assembler.  Over the years I have worked on different projects with different languages and levels of technicality and  mostly for companies such as IBM, DEC.  I  am also a SAP ABAP  programmer and do commercial work in that area.  I have also done some games programming for iPhone (uSpell:iEvolve is the main one which I project lead and helped program) as an experiment and to learn a new language/platform.   

I am not a Graphic artist or 3D artist but I can put together some 2D graphics which are passable for a happy amateur (see the iPhone apps. If anyone wants a promo code, please pm me).  So going from Photoshop/Adobe Illustrator to 3DS max & Hero is quite a challenge (I have tinkered with POV-ray and also looked at VRML in the past). 
I will need help from people here  to put together our demo  so if there are willing bods around able to spare advice and time to help with the odd specific problem, I'd be very grateful.  I use Mac's and PC's (Win 7 64 Intel Quad Q6600 4GB and Nvidia GeForce 9800 GT) . Right now I need to source a graphics card for my dev PC because it keeps crashing with a fault that looks distinctly 'Graphicsy' when I am using the Hero Blade. I have had to do a full restore from backups 3 times so far and it is getting a bit boring ::) Loving Hero though ....

Sally is a marketing exec who I met whilst on a business course and who approached me later with the project.   So here I am looking up at that mountain of learning I have to do thinking 'you want a demo?  okaaaaaay' :)

The ? is the person/s we will have to get on board to do the full product but we have to sell the concept first via the demo.

Welcome to Martyn Oakley and Nigel Critten of COG Media who have come aboard our little project... 

Both are very experience Graphics specialists having created 3d games before - Nigel is listed on Imdb as he helped do the graphics for the film 'Lost in Space'. 

Both are also great to work with and live in Norwich, UK so we can meet face to face easily.
