don't render harder, render smarter

 

You seem to have got the 'don't render' part down fully.  I'll chime in and be the nth person here telling you to go and do something and stop pretending you already know how ;)

Reading the tech manual and countless forum topics over a period of time, makes me feel like I know something.

I've read 2001, but I ain't going to Jupiter anytime soon.

You had better read what the "Dunning Kruger effect" is.

As soon as you start programming, you will know if you know or don't know. And likely you will know by then that your knowledge isn't sufficient because of the unknown in the machine.
You know?

Dude what are you even talking about...??? You're trying to paint a picture of me that isn't true at all and you know nothing about... I don't know what kind of idea about me that you have, but I'm trying to make peace here, maybe the sarcasm goes straight over my head, a lot of that around. Making peace seems to go by the waist-side over here, but then again maybe there's still hope... Maybe.

Ha ha very funny... Well now that you bring it up... Actually I like 2001 the movie visuals. Syd Mead (Mr. TRON himself), the futurist did all of the visual art works for that movie. I consider his work very brilliant and hope to bring that level of artistry to the Jag one day.

 

BTW I'm still very interested in RAPTOR... I want to make a 68000 based 3D engine using RAPTOR to display it for experimental reasons. There's a few things I need to grasp before using it, but I been eyeballing Raptor for a minute believe or not since I got another Skunkboard about a year ago. No need in programming the GPU in Assembly when you have the API to do the graphic work.

I here you... Thanks for the advise. That's probably one of the reason why I never dived in all of the way due to all of the horror stories from experienced programmers like yourself and others here. It's also one of the reason why I keep reading.

That is why I released it. Now, Go. Code.

I'm just telling you that it would be wise to be a bit more modest about yourself, read: abilities/competence as a coder, IF you actually  want to achieve anything.
