Well im thinking of starting to do some games.

Do you think its worth it?

(I dont have $125 to shell out just to get an account on App Store and Play Store)

And im talking about game development on phones ;)

Well the fact is, I am not creative enough to cook up ideas for a game xD

might also take a while since school is coming up and im gonna go to japan probably next week

Im kinda new to game development and was planning to use P+ hehehehe
Well only problem is how would i compile apps for mac and iOS lol
Probably gonna borrow my friends macbook.

Only real problem is i dont have time now lol

Goodluck on your quest, also i wouldn't mind helping. :rolleyes:
I suggest a MMORPG Sandbox, or if not that a action adventure. Look at what apps are popular on the app store and try to figure out how to make a game.

Well i still need to get a damn android phone :( (I only have a samsung galaxy pocket GT-S5300)
So i can start

iOS hmmmm i have an iPhone but i cant develop apps since i dont have a mac
(I wish apple will make their compiler compatible with windows (Port their customized gcc to windows hehehe))

Im still waiting for me to have some time for it though. (Also an android phone
Well ill also just start making games when i have a new hdd since mine is almost full right now (2GB left of 40GB space. Well my old 500GB hdd broke and i cant buy a new one yet.)

I swear I was just thinking the same exact thing. "I wonder if Conan would start making a game like Growtopia." I literally just logged into the forums to ask you if there are any good free security programs for PC.

Well im the type of person who doesnt want to copy or let anyone copy my work. :)

IDK about antiviruses because i had problems WITH EVER SINGLE AVs.

I suggest that just not click suspicious links.
Also use Sandboxie on suspicious apps.

Thats just the security i need.

PS You have some prediction powers xD

I mean don't copy Growtopia, but you should definitely build an MMO. Preferably PvP based. :o

A community of about 100 people honestly wouldn't be too bad.

Well im still not thinking to make an online game.
(Security issues against hacka etc)
Im currently studying more about security so maybe ill do an online game after i finish studying it.

Thanks for the ideas though

Nobody's stopping you, so I say go for it.

You have no dead-line, like those official game developers so take your time, but remember, you don't have all the time in the world =P

You should get a SSD for faster Hard Drive usage. Also, if you figure out how to compile the apps, and get code written for a beginner game (text adventure or something like that) then go for it.

What im trying to find out is how should i compile apps for iOS .-.

Android is not a problems since there are cross compilers for it.

PS i prefer HDDs currently due to space
(Faster bootup times doesnt matter as i leave my computer on for almost 24/7 unless i have school)

SSDs are only good for games and faster bootup times. SSDs are a waste in development because it will wear out faster due to multiple writes in changing code

Well you could make a private server based online game and then make it public once you know how to get good security for it.

Hmm i might start coding when i start school. (Most probably my ticket to get a chance to enter the robotics team of a school i might be transferring to)

It would be easy for yah since you have experience in PHP
(PHP is the c++ of the web)

php was my first actual programming language.
PS c++ is fun to learn

Well, if you need something done quickly, you should consider an extra $40. But if you are writing codes and making source code and stuff, get a HDD.

Also, do you know how to root Android or iOS devices? Just considering.

I think he meant an SSD for the server.

Not sure why everyone thinks security on servers is a real issue.
Never trust the client with the least load you can do.

Game development takes a while so just brainstorm ideas and aspects before you take full dive. But once you are prepared, go for it.

If he is making a online server, he would probably need a SSD, but for the main source code computer or his work computer, HDD would be more preferred.

Of course i know how to jailbreak and root
I have been jailbreaking for 6 years and rooting for 4 years (*And earning money from it)

Well you could work on DOS protection as your server seems to have none. I have a high membership on titanium stressor, if you want me to use up some time on it you'll have to pay me equivalent in according to downtime.

DoSing isnt equivalent to getting into a server

Get your facts right /fp

Ahh so ignore DOS protection all together because it's out of your league i'm guessing? No DOS is not theft of any kind, and your definition of "hacking" is walls of matrix greentext to get all the passcodes to your youtube tutorial level code or something? I can't recall where but you were being a true normie around a coding tutorial preaching that netbeans has lack of a compiler.
Finally you hide this with a /fp? I hear thats real fresh over these parts from the all o mighty growblocks, created with the staff member of the Ludum dare and such (which he isn't even known for though more successful and world-wide in that department)
If you're treated a leader around these parts what would posting my codelings make me? /g is more suited for your technical knowledge. Im sure my colleagues would be greatly impressed of your web 1.0 website as much as you are.

Well if u notice i dont use Java
I just said netbeans isnt a compiler. i didnt say that netbeans doesnt have a bundled compiler
And PS i dont follow any tutorials like you say. you dont know me so dont make assumptions without proper proof.

Get your details right before saying anything

And another one. If your gonna DoS me using titanium stresser, i can assume you dont read ToS or AuP of services u subscribe to
its clearly mentioned in the Use license


Under this license you may not: Intentionally send a ddos flood to an IP address not owned by yourself;

And DoSing my server? You wanna be one of the pathetic skids of the tech world? I hope not.

Ill just ignore your posts from now on

Oh man terms of service? Yea that sure stopped me from testing it on "'my' multiple home networks". Another "techie" all "pics or it didn't happen" mad at me for suggesting DOS protection for your website. Ignore me honey.

Ah so just annoyed that I suggested such a thing instead of searching for holes? About as annoying as being told to get my stuff together when you straight up assumed I believed DOS was getting behind a server.

Well i was not annoyed. sorry if i seemed rude to yah.

I talk like that even in real life.


I dont think anyone would attack the server though. If someone did i could just ask the provider to nullroute my ip or they could do it once they detected an attack.

PS i think your a cool guy ;D


Well one thing id do as soon as i launch a normal operating website is get a small ddos protected vps and setup a nginx proxy to my server. that would do for ddos protection.

(I hate migrating servers its a pain in the ass (Reconfiguring crap))


Oh and also
I miss that Server i got from OVH (DDoS protected) it just gives me a too much unstable connection when using SSH or SCP because of the high latency so i got a server in Oregon

(Oh i should have enabled cloudflare on teh root damain lol)

You get out. I thought you were done with being a :poop:, apparently you're not.
This is a public forum, if you are not intelligent enough to know what that means, pay more attention in school.

Also, it's ironic that you tell me I am off topic, while on a thread talking about the FNAF nightmare chica, you posted this:

FNAF sucks it's BORING

Your own SIGNATURE says "Yeah, I know why you're here. You're one of those fanboys/fangirls who keep screaming when I have my own opinion. Free country, you know," while you yourself can not stand even the fraction of someone else's opinion.
