Especially today, as graphics and sound are worse than ever these days. You seem to consider the technical improvement being a one-way road: always getting better. I don't. Graphics always slowly got better until the early nineties. Then, there is a sharp downfall in the mid-90s when people started using this render-shit and ugly 3D for everything.


Hmm, I would have something to say: graphics gradually got better because they got from CGA to EGA, then MCGA , VGA and SVGA.
All was driven by advancements in hardware. Why do you think that now, hi-res modes, alpha channel and hardware 3d acceleration is a downfall ?

I don't have any resume in English (though I have many of them in my language laying around :D)
I know programming in a variety of languages and I have some experience in some fields of computer industry.

I can also show you some programs made by me during the years, programs which I intend to publish on my site as freeware. None of them is finished so I won't publish them now. One of them is a game based on neural networks.

For the last years, my work was mostly directed to signal processing software, by I ocasionally got distracted to other things

Cool.

By best friend from middle and high school is now
a professional programmer; business apps and such.

We use to program stuff together.

Unfortunatly, I was a sloppy programmer, but enjoyed it. My ideas were often used but often rewritten from the code I wrote. "This is a great program but it's written like crap, I'll rewrite it ... now."

If you're really interested in collaborating on something I'd like to look at what you've programmed, in case it might inspire to me to learn how to code again. Maybe. ;)

The last thing I did (and it was only once for a game), was a crack for HOTU, which any monkey
could have done. Nevertheless, no monkey ever did. So I spent a week on that game (which shows you how bad I was) so that damned game's sound would work correctly and not need a CD. Cannon Fodder 2. For what it's worth, heh, I was credited on the site. Then BrendanD found a copy for sale in qualm or canton island somewhere. It
was removed for awhile and then put back up on the site later on. There's a .txt file though I included with the archive. I still sometimes get email about it. But not much, because it works. ;)

Way to go ;) I've done some cracks myself, but mostly for myself or my friends. Never released one as they weren't needed (some other people made better ones ). I can remember I cracked the cd check in Half Life and in Black and White.
Even now from time to time, I'm having fun modifying the saves in the game I'm playing , like putting there a lot of money :D, but that's very easy and it's not really a crack

As usual, you're wearing blinkers and thus shutting out most of the important developments of computer history.
Even ignoring that, it's still not valid. It's not the technology, but what one makes of it. Starting in the mid-90s, computer graphics stopped being its own form of art, because everybody was just (successfully) imitating other styles.

Mr Creosote: you're right ;)

AEI: My site ain't worth looking at, and the programs, as I explained, aren't there. Just ask me and I'll send them by email.

Dexterus: Oh, come on, you should at least be consistent and stand up for your "PC is god and it has always been" thesis :P

Huh :confused: What is that ?

I actually think you're right. Now whoever tries doing something in graphics, he aims towards realism and not artisticity ( made up word ? )
The drawing tools have became standard, so it's no wonder that graphics look all the same

AEI, I remembered that I can show you a site that I made (for free) for a dude who thinks he's Satan or a satanist or something like that :D
The site is in Romanian , but you should find your way there if you choose the first link , to the best section , the pictures one( in terms of java script programming, not for that dude's face :P )

You must have IE and scripts enabled to view the site because at first I was too lazy to make the Netscape equivalent and then I lost track of that dude and I guess I should not care about his site anymore ...

Looked at the Satan site. I don't know much about java programming so I couldn't really critque but it seems well put together. Is Romanian your native language? Just randomly curious what the chat transcript was about.

Yes, it is.
The chat is some kind of philosophical discussion between this guy and a religious guy, with all kind of nasty swearing :D

You can also see a link to my site there :P

I sent you an email about the programs.
