AH! After many months, I have received my computer back. If no one remembers, I was one of the contest entries/winners to Conjured Entertainment's little competition (prize being FPSC Bonanza). After I received FPSC, I had to take in my computer for repairs and such. But now I am back to contribute to this great community. I hope to create weapons as good as EAI's, intelligent scripts, and great games such as Alpha Project by Lewis.

Hello, my name is Dante and I am a fair user of FPS creator!

First I would like to comment the efforts of the team that created FPSC. It is truly a job well done! FPSC allows users to quickly create great FPS games in a matter of minutes without any coding and publish it. I do not think we can find any other product like it.

However, with all that praise, it all leads to one question: How worthy is it?

As you all know, FPSC itself costs $50. But not only that, you have to pay even more to get the model packs. Imagine you were this guy who had just gotten FPSC only to realize he had to pay more in order to use it to its full function.

I do not think he will be pleased....

If it is possible, try making the model packs free.

And another thing: FPSC free

As you all know, FPSC can be downloaded completely free without the multiplayer function and more.

But if it is unable to build a standalone game, why even bother making it free? Who will want it? They might as well get the demo!

I hope you guys will look into this situation.
Thank you
DarkJames

Hey
I'm Joe
I live in Vancouver B.C. Canada
I have been using FPSC for just under a year. I got into game design through Rainbow Six. There was a level editor that came with the cd using the Unreal editor to create your own levels for the game. Next was Blender. After that I was using Unity, but I realised that to create what I want ( a multiplayer fps ), it would take me way to long with those programs. FPSC has so much of the work done for you, I thought it was my best bet at creating a multiplayer game. I am a online fps player, and I think FPSC can create better games than some of the ones I have seen. I am not really good at any one aspect of game design, and only do a little of everything, which you kinda have to do when creating your own game.(lots of duct tape!)
Just want to send a big thanks to the community for answering questions, free media, scripts, ect... and I think this introduce yourself is a great idea.!

Hello,

I'm new to FPSC. I have a son who has Aspberger's Syndrome (that's a form of Autism) but he loves building and experimenting with mods for Half-Life. So I bought FPSC in hopes that he will find it fun and easy to work with. He wants to do game design someday. I'm hoping with the resources I find here at TGC I can help him achieve that goal someday. Naturally, like the model train sets dads "bought for their sons" in days gone by I also intend to have a hand at FPSC designing too. : )

Well, TTFN. I'll probably be back soon with questions once I start building my first game.

Other background info: I ama regular guy who lost his life in 2008 when he bought FPSC. Now he will stop talking in 3rd person and move to First Person (wich everyone here propably likes). I think myself as a good level designer (all may not agree, but I satisfy myself) but I never seem to get my projects finished (as my imagination makes new interesting ideas and the other reason is bugs), but that doesen't bother me. I have the coolest hair style anyone can have (dreadlcoks that is). I live in finland with my sisters and parents, and occasionally with my brother (and to clear up, there is NO polar bears in Finland) and I play bassguitar and a little bit of regular guitar. Thats about it! Hope I wasted your time and have a good day! (time is money!)

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things that I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

Real Name: Jordan Ruetz
Born in the great United States (Michigan to be precise )
Now Residing in New York

I sort of pop in and out of these forums every now and then
Living out the rest of my younger years here in NY.
I'm definitely a gamer,(add me on LIVE if you want, just let me know who you are ) but I still love getting out of the house and chillin out with some friends I'm also really interested in things like drawing, animation, and graphic/digital arts.

FPSC is definitely addicting software. It's absolutely quick and efficient in taking your ideas and imagination and painting it onto it's virtual 3d canvas. It may not be the most advanced piece of work around, but it's truly fantastic for hobbyists like me who just want a vent to unleash their creativity. I've always loved using this software and will continue to do so

That about says it all
Goodbye!

Had wrote quite some text, then my net got bad
when I was hitting the post button,
...no way I am writing all that again.
(sadly, hadn't made a copy)

But to sum up, what I had explained:
Fact is I'm very creative and a friend challenged my statement.
I proved him wrong by inventing a car boardgame in 1-2 hours,
after having played the game he said:
Amazing in such a short development time, let's play again!

Hello,

My name is Pete Gruessing. I just purchased FPS and I am looking forward to creating some commerically viable games. I'm a bit older but I guess its the little kid in me that still wants to do this. Most of my gaming/programming time is in the early am but I have found alot of time lately to read the forums. Looking forward to participating in the game challenges. Nice to meet everyone.

Found out about FPS Creator when I was bored one day back in June 2008. I did a search for various game creation software and, in the search, found out about FPS Creator. Unfortunately it wasn't until today that I finally got a copy of the program. Can't wait to get started

Okay,

My name is Johnathan, recently seperated from the US Army with an Honorable discharge after about 8 years of service and 2 deployments to Iraq. I was a 63H, tracked vehicle mechanic, but during deployments, as other veterans will understand, I did a wide range of jobs, whatever I was called upon to do.

Before leaving the military I dug deep to find another field to get into, so here I am working behind a computer. A lot safer I must say. lol Allthough, I do enjoy tinkering with my truck and anyone else's willing to let me under their hood or under their chassy.

I work from home doing just about any odd job that can be done from a computer. Always wanting to learn more to expand my services and create my own products.

As of now, I have built fairly strong skill sets working with wordpress, joomla, some html/css, some graphic design, but my strong points I have found to be in online marketing, process organizing (ie.. flow charts to track, fix, and smooth out work flow).

After seeking out an entry level point for game creation, I ran across FPSC.

So here I am. I hope to find help here and am willing to help out in any manner that I can.

I won't tell my real name, location (more than that I live in Finland) or anything like that. Because many people would kill me right away...
But... Anyway...
I like many things: FPS Creator, making music, listening music, girls, and all sorts of other stuff.
And... well... I know many people hate me... But well, I guess I'm a really easily hated person or something...
And hmm...
Music I like (and make myself): Black metal, death metal, grindcore, dark ambient, industrial, etc.
Movies I like: Weeell, some horror movies, some comedy, etc...
Games I like: Well.... I don't really play any games that much, except a few open source games, and of course games made with FPSC.

FPSC Background: I started using FPSC last year, and as I saw more and more mods come out, I started to delve into the source a little bit. After a good 8 months had passed in which I was making simple changes in the source, I decided to learn C++ and D3D to rewrite FPSC in C++, a project I don't think will be done anytime soon. But it's been a great learning experience for me, and the community is awesome!

Here it goes :3

My real name is Michael I was born and live in Texas, USA (where else would you get to shoot things? had to say it xD)
I'm a college student persuing a career in Physical Therapy...but I really adore making games, I've played around with free engines like Eclipse and Free Realms, I've also toyed around with Realmcrafter (I'm waiting for it to advance further before I use it for the MMORPG I'm planning though :/ I require more features...and a good source editor >>.
So right now I'm working with FPSC, I'll tell you what I'm planning for it when I get enough ready for a WIP thread xD I like doing things flashy if I do them at all when it comes to games.
I have loose morals when it comes to making games, I figure as long as it's not illegal there's no reason I shouldn't use it to further the quality of the game...I'm just that type of person (I respect the law and I have my own morals, but as long as I don't violate either of those, I'll do anything for better effect!)

I'm new to FPSC but I'm no stranger to game design, I've taken classes in animation (bad at it) modelling (decent at it)and I've taught myself how to write a good storyline...with some critics from gamer websites (surprisingly I'm good at it o.o why do I make such low grades on essays...) I'm actually willing to join a team as long as I'm just advising or helping with the plot, I'm still working on my own game after all!

Hello, this is my first time useing the fourms. Some might know me, such as Cosmic and Shadowtroid. I'm not a scripting expert, but I have been useing Fpsc for quite some time. I have many things I would like to contribute, and many people I wish to meet. I'll start by releaseing some of my stuff later today, and have an introduction to a second edited version of someone's free model pack. (I have their permission) So I hope you guys like what I have to offer.

I hate this box, but hey it's there.....
..... It's still there.....

I thought I posted but I guess I didn't. First of all welcome to all the newbies (NOT noobs but new people).

Name: Terry Cox
Age: Turned 30 the second time a few years ago.
From: Capital of Nebraska

I'm a retired computer programmer. I started out in the early 70's and worked long distance with Bill gates through the early 80s. Don't let this impress you. It didn't work out and I did NOT become a billionaire. But, that's OK. Good experience. BTW, he had a fledgling business at that time which was founded in his parent's home. He always had a mind for business and dreaming. Which is good for entrepreneurs.

When I grow up I want to develop games. Oh, I guess that's what I'm trying to do now. However, because of my programming background I ended up doing more programming work on FPI EditPad and RPG Mod. Oh well, if I live long enough I'll get that dream game I've been wanting to start. So far all of my games have been educational in nature.

As a Vietnam Vet, I want to also thank Keith for his service.

NOTE: Because I am a fairly fast touch typist it is easy for me to get carried away with posts. So if you think my posts are long don't worry, I'm just full of hot air and need to let some out every once in a while.

Addendum:

I like to do addendums.

When I first started looking at ways of game development my first thought was using VB, then C#. C# was out immediately as I didn't want to learn something new and different although I've worked with C++. However, I also soon found that there was going to be too much "from scratch" kind of programming dealing with the video cards. Then I found DBPro. It was similar to the VB language which I had become very, very familiar with in the last few years of my Data Base programming business. Also it was appealing because it had all the commands that sat on top of MS's DX library. That was just the ticket. However, it too was too much to learn at the time. That's when I looked at FPSC. Hmmm? I like this drag and drop thing. I was also very impressed with the writer of this app as well as the programming language of DBPro. Do you realize the most sophisticated programs in mechanical engineering are now using the "drag and drop" technique of objects?

Because of my experience and because I'm old and it is expected of old people to reminisce I could go on and on. Before I quit, I need to tell you that my very first Hard Drive (a whopping 5MB) cost US $1,000 back in the 70's. My memory might not be so good about how much. But I do know it was a lot of money.

You're welcome.

I didn't know that Terry was a Nam Vet either; my thanks back to him for going before me.

Hello all,

All my friend are calling me Noize, so that's kind of my "official" name. I think only my wife & family calls me by my "real" name, which I don't use online anyway as a general guideline... Not that I don't trust anybody, but, you know...

I just bought FPSC (The bonanza offer with the couple of model packs included). So far, I'm quite impressed with this thing.

I've always been interested in creating my own games and content. I'm, what people like to say, a creative guy. I've played with Music creation, game creation, movie editing, etc... I work as a graphic designer, but most of my spare time is spent building and updating a french gaming website with tons of features.

Among the things I've created in the past, were simple games (think space invaders like), front-ends for emulators, screen savers that grab RSS feeds from the net, a system of centralized screen savers for large businesses, a virtual museum interface for websites (similar in functionalities to Google Earth Streetview, only designed to showcase artwork in a virtual museum), and total conversion into french of (and a lot of home-made improvements to)a content-management system.

I've also made some funny videogame inspired songs and did a series of videogame-inspired webcomics (about 50 strips in total) for a couple of years... Oh, and I once created a simple (but only semi-functional) instant messenger system for a website I was once part of.

Whatever that makes my creative juice flow inspires me.

So here I am. ;p
