Status Update (Saving Private Charles)

Recommended Posts

Hi folks! I thought I'd let you know that I'm still alive and well. Unfortunately I haven't been able to visit the site as much as I'd like, since I've been very busy.

 

If you're wandering what I've been up to, I am now in my second year of university. I am majoring in both computer science and mathematics, so I have 5 hours of (nearly) back to back classes during the week. On weekends I do homework and keep up with errands.

 

Still, I am going to try to make a conscientious effort to visit Stronghold Nation when I am able to. If any of you ever need me in a hurry, I am typically logged into Steam when I am home (even when I am "away from keyboard") unless I'm working on something. :)

 

P.S. I have the Stronghold games and everyone on this forum to thank for nudging me in the direction of computer science. Ever since I was a kid with a discount "jewel box" version of Stronghold Crusader, I have enjoyed working with computers.

 

For those interested, I learned Python my first year in an "intro" class, and am currently learning Java alongside the basics of object oriented programming. If any of you are familiar with code, you'll know that this is the base for designing games (or any serious programs with a decent user interface), so it's quite possible that my final project for this semester may be a RTS game ... but I'll say no more. :D

Keep at the great endeavor of School, Charles. It will pay off someday.........

 

Glad as always to "hear" from you, hope you can drop by with more frequency.

You're not alone here, Charles! Seems like a lot of us have been busy recently as the site hasn't been that active the last week or so. Good to hear everything is well! :)

I'm in the same boat, but I hope I'm going to get rid of one of my huge obligations this Thursday. :D

Charles, so there's another mathematician among us now besides me! Glad to hear that! But I feel you made a better decision with focusing your talents in programming. Sometimes I think whether I should switch to programming too, although I've went pretty far with mathematics (in terms how much I studied)...

I wish you all the luck, and do come buy now and then. ;)

That's a good point, Eagle! I can't explain how glad I am that there are mathematically minded people on this earth. If it were up to me, we'd be in big trouble. It's the reason I had an A in chemistry, but only managed a C in physics. I've never been very good at mathematics! :P?

 

Any questions on sociology or psychology then I can help. Haha!?

    • A small update to articles

      Hi everyone,   I thought I'd share a quick update with you all that I've just performed to our article system. Before you had to scroll all the way to the end of an article in order to rate it. I've changed this now so that it's the same as the system for rating downloads. Simply hover over the existing stars at the top of the article, and select which rating you would like to give the article.   I'd also like to share several new files with you all that have been uploaded by @jmatthes- they are

    • Crests by Charles of Tours

      I like the "subject," sounds like a designer brand.   Anyhow, folks! I made some of these crests using http://rpg.uplink.fi/heraldry/?template=main, as shown in June 2014's signature design thread. These are not meant to be signatures, but I have no problem with people using these for whatever their fancy may be. I hope some hints of French and Italian can be tolerated for the text below each crest, as these are inspired by crests of actual places. Some are fictional too. Enjoy!   Note, I use Pa

    • unable to update my heading post and to post link

      Hi, I have tried to update the heading post of my Stronghold Crusader faces and crests tread, but I failed. I also tried to add the new face in a new post, but I was unable to post links as well... (the image file was linked to bmp which is located at Slavic Warlords website)   Is this something new, or there is just some maintenance going on?
