This intro is a first prod for one of the coders at www.dbfinteractive.com his name is Benny and he made this intro to promote our message board, and especially our new feature "Find A Coder"


Basically we love intros so very much that we want to offer you the services of over 200 programmers, if you are a lone gfxer or musician and you want an alternative to using lame demo tools then you should be looking at that to get a coder for your production. We have coders of all levels of ability, from newbie to master so you will defiantely be able to find someone to work with.

Thanks to Benny for making this intro, I appreciate it!

ok, the idea behind it isn't that bad at all, but if you want my honest opinion: this intro just sucks... even for 4k. sorry!

Fair comment. Hopefully we'll see some support for the idea, we have a load of coders who can contribute something worthwhile to the scene and by the same token I see lots of demos that are made with demo makers where the person submitting it has some gfx or music skills.. With luck it will see some new groups being born, talented guys like Rbraz / Gravity and Thygrion / Yup started off (and still contribute to) our community so there is a chance for lone guys to get a seriously dedicated and cool coder for thier projects instead of flooding the scene with OSDM shit.

at least the sound isn't that bad..

The goal is noble. The intro, sadly, is not.

i personally cant see how coder-pimping is much better than using demotools. the group is not just a bunch of gyus with a shared set of needed abilities, there's something more to it, i believe.
a haujobb [coder] is $20, you'll have pay another $10 to watch, so what guys, a deal ?

apricot: But how are you supposed to form a group without meeting other people somewhere? (coders are people too)
added on the 2007-04-17 20:48:50 by Sverker Sverker
you see, "pimping" is for a reason there. it may sound strange but some people meet their gfs (wives later) without the aid of dating sites. hmmm... weird, eh ?
anyway, it's just my opinion, so you can just disregard it the moment you've read it. although it's nice to remember that rules are proven by exceptions.

Its a good idea. miscians / graphicians can go there and hook up with some ppl who can code I like it

I don't think it is that bad. Lacks content but it's still ok for not even 3k.

Not fantastic/impressive as 4KB intro, but nice as tiny announcement, especially first one, 2.7KB, would be cool to show texts in more sophisticated way.
rulez added on the 2007-04-18 11:27:33 by Pirx Pirx
It's worth mentioning that dbfinteractive a forum for basic programmers. and 4k's shouldn use dll's IMHO.

basic so what?
added on the 2007-04-18 16:01:21 by uns3en_ uns3en_
skurk, you are wrong there. Basic languages are covered, but so are other languages like c , c++, asm, java, and even console homebrew stuff. And anyway, as uns3en says, "so what?"

Even if some stuff is written in basic, it doesn't matter, at least it is original code and not ripped off or made with someone elses demo tools.

seen some impressive darkbasic stuff .. or was it darkbasic .. anyway

Thumbs up for making up the find a coder section. The intro is ok, the writer is nice, the cube inside cube reminds me of my first unreleased OpenGL stuff, the clipping bugs though are a bit ugly. I won't let the coder down and thumb this up, after all it's his 1st intro.

You all need to get off your fucking high pedestals and encourage benny and the DBF crew who trickle impressive new talents into the scene. I'm adding another string to my bow and taking the course with everyone there. Plus for a first <4k it was quite good. <3

What EMP said ^ 2 ! But u know that aint gonna happen its all about "them" Good one Benny keep it up.
rulez added on the 2007-04-22 19:32:50 by wham wham
in fact, instead of "bleh", my exact feeling about this one is "what preacher said"
I wouldn't be making demos had it not been for the DBF crew.

Woot for DBF!
