I like your ideas for Xenon III: GYGABLAST. I'll try to think of any cool additions for this nice project of yours.
Will be watching this thread with anticipation.
Programming is like any other hobby. Anyone can do it, but doing it WELL takes time, practice and patience.
There are plenty of online resources for budding novice programmers, as well as a host of good books available from Amazon.
I've been programming since I was 8 years old - and I do it professionally now as a career (although serious software).
Games programming for me is a both a hobby and a passion - I love it.
Being able to imagine a game in your head, and then sit down and make it a reality is a very rewarding experience.
Xenon III *will* happen. It will probably take me a few months to write, but when it's done, I'll post it to the Zone.
I'll be more than happy to share the source code here, as well.
