  1. Thanks for that. One of my main reasons for considering the masters route is that it could provide me with a portfolio of work at the end (ie completed course work and final project). And I would imagine that the work I would end up producing would be far beyound the scope of what iwould be attempting purely on my own. (eg a 2d demo). On an other note when you are interviewing prospective employees how do you gauge their enthusasium and passion (sp) for games? This is along way off but if I went in to an interview Im not sure how I would go about conveying my genueine (sp) passion for games.
  2. Really? Thing is though for me this masters would provide a defined route and probably get me doing things i woudnt have tought to have tried. Though do you really think itwould be waste of time? Basically i would be learning from a book an if i just make a game (though i im going to do this aswell) Also when you say make a game how sophisticated should it be? Does it matter? As far as i can gather you are a developer yourself so more of your opinions would be very much appreciated
  3. Hi, Im thinking of doing a masters in Game Development a the university of Abertay Dundee. http://www.abertay.ac.uk/Courses/CDetails.cfm?RID=1&CID=186 Im in my final year of an IT degree where we were mainly taught java. Basically I wondering should i maybe start getting into c++. I ve never used c ++ at all so what books would you lot recommend especially if Im wantint to head toward game development. I understand that that I really need to start with the fundamentals first then move on to some graphic programming. Do most courses require alot of opengl stuff (im still not sure of the link between open gl and c++ or any other language). If i manage to get on to this masters course I planning to spend my summer getting up to speed on as much of the course content as possible (as im afraid i might be a bit behind other applicants). Also does anyone know what particular jobs are available to graduates of game development courses? Ie is the only job suitable for such graduates programming. And on a more general note what developers think of these courses?
  4. Nah but the multi player levels on perfect dark where a bit shit compared to goldeneyes. Just endless mazes (most of them) no sense of location like goldeneye
  5. sorry just deleted something i should nt have said
  6. well let me ask you this: shut up (copyright police chief wiggum)
  7. games tm means well but really they re writing ability is piss poor compared to the edge. "could do with better gameplay..." hmm. Sort of like saying "could do with being a better film" Though their enthusasium (sp) for games seems genuine. Edit: I was drunk when I wrote this, god i sound like a pillock when im drunk.
  8. Nah I was refering to the two DC sticks I own, never used a Gamester stick before.
  9. No worries no rush, Im not even sure i want to gut those two sticks as they look so nice as they are, its just i ve got capcom vs snk 2 and been playing alot on live. I really like those two sticks even if my mates slag the hell out of me for owning them..
  10. All I want is mean machines back. Please someone up load aload of scans like they did for your sinclair. PLease
  11. Anybody want to by a copy of pop n twin bee (pal), tattered box no instructions?
  12. cheers for that yod@. Was it you or someone else who was offering to do dc stick gutting for a fee?
  13. Took me a while to figure out what exactly they where doing on that site. Anyway with dc stick to xbox (which im most interested in) do you not end up losing lots of xbox buttons doing this way (ie universal adapter). If im only interested in dc stick to xbox would i be best just getting a gamester stick and and putting insides in a dc stick. Also do you think it would be possible to order some arcade buttons, drill some wholes in the dc stick, and wire up the extra xbox buttons? (or even just use the buttons left over from gamester stick). One last thing: i think i remember some other bloke on the forum saying the dc stick mod was quite tricky to do and required some extra resistors, is this true?
  14. 17 seconds how the feck are you getting that?????
  15. Tell me more about this standard connector. I ve got two dc sticks that i really want to used with the xbox you chipped for me! Also how hard is it to convert dc stick to xbox? any links?
  16. AS in friday nite, i still cant figure out how to find out the dateyou guys make these posts? If you mean tonite as in friday thou yeah definately! count me in.
  17. You lot probably have seen this before. Somebody has made there own version of streets of rage for pc dc and ps2 using snk and sega sprites apparently its not bad at all. http://members.rott.chello.nl/~r.vanmastbergen/index.html also there is aversion for the xbox according to their faq. They cant distribute it thou has anyone got a url?
  18. plus an education is priceless. And you learn more than just what is explicitly taught by your course: How to manage yourself and your projects and in some ways how to think for yourself. Thats why companies hire graduates.
  19. I only know of two princes street and cameron toll where are the others?
  20. Was no one else a bit dissapointed with edinburghs bit, i have two ed tracks left to unlock but still no full length princes street, is it included? I wish theyd put the meadows in thats where i live!
