C++ to C#

Recently, after looking a while on some sites like Gamedev I said to myself  "Why do you want to waste your time on making C++ games for fun when you could do them in C# ?" .

Captain Shutdown 2.4 Release

Here is the 2.4 version of Captain Shutdown . It includes a fixed bug of the previous version and I added a Password option that will allow you to keep the unwanted ones away :) . I'll add a Note option in the next version , which I think it will be a good add-on . Keep in touch !

Captain Shutdown 2.1 Release

The 2.1 version of Captain Shutdown removes the Shut Down Now button , but instead it gives the default value of '0' to the lineEdit so if you open the application and press Enter it will shut down immediately.

Captain Shutdown 2.0 Release

After some struggle between TinyProjectz, school and personal life I finally finished Captain Shutdown 2.0. It is basically the same application as 1.0 except it has a GUI .

While still learning to properly use QtWidgets I thought that it would be helpful to write a small post on it.

Captain Shutdown 2.0 Announcement

While I'm taking a break from Fast Ship project I thought that I should try the QtWidgets library since I heard a lot of positive reviews on it.
I'll try to learn to use QtWidgets by making a GUI version of Captain Shutdown.

Fast Ship 1.0 Update

Making a space shooter as your first game , even a very simple one as Fast Ship, isn't such a good idea after all. Of course, you learn lots of new things but you might have a hard time fixing many bugs and such things which can make you give up easily .
I will try to fix the bugs , but I don't think it's going to be over soon . So I thought I should come to something easier until I gain a little more experience.

Fast Ship 1.0 Announcement

I started working at a simple space shooter some time ago . It should have been finished a long time ago xD but I couldn't work every day and from time to time there were whole months when I didn't code at all.
So basically, this will be a very simple space shooter where you will have to shoot UFOs and they will come faster and faster and have higher HP than the previous ones and higher Attack Rate and Damage .

TicTacToe 1.0 Release

Hello !
I'm sorry for the delay but I'm really busy these days with the exams so I couldn't even create my own TicTacToe game which would only take 1 hour or less if you would build it from scratch.

I took this source code from the book : "Beginning C++ through game programming 3rd edition" by Michael Dawson , Link to his blogLink to site
I really recommend buying this book, it suits both beginners and advanced programmers bringing a new approach on learning.

Here is the link to the source code : Link

Captain Shutdown 1.0 Announcement

Captain Shutdown 1.0 will be an application that will allow you to schedule your computer to turn off after a certain amount of minutes, it will be a console application in the beginning and will only have 3 options : shut down immediately, cancel shutdown, shut down after n minutes .
Probably I will upgrade it and add more options and some nice windows , maybe passwords in the future .

Hello World!

Hello !
This blog is aimed at those who want to learn something new, and those who want to teach other people.
From time to time I will start a new project which will contain an application and everyone will be able to suggest improvements / optimizations / report bugs and all that kind of stuff. Of course, everyone can show some pieces of code in case they want it to be used in that application. If you want to get your code posted e-mail it to me at .
Essentially this will be a blog where everybody will be able to learn new things practically .
Hope you will enjoy it !
