I write software as a hobby, so go easy on me. This is not my occupation or day job. I have an undergraduate degree in Mathematics which I obtained from the University of Washington a long time ago. This is the extent of my formal training, in Mathematics and computer science. I work on computer infrastructures and in support of enterprises application for a living. I have been at this line of work for ages. A bit too long… I am currently working on finishing a software project I started some time ago, which is a scrolling maze game written in C++. At present I am just using DirectX 7.0. I have a primary and back surface, that I load 32BPP artwork into. Not necessarily cool to anyone but will be an accomplishment if I can complete the work since I am working alone on the project. I have some data structures that are interesting to me. And it would be sort of neat to get this project done before the end of 2021. I prefer the coding aspect of the work, and do not particularly care to work with artwork, as I do not consider myself to be much of an artist. I have been taking photos of dolls and animating them, which seems to work for now. I was given an XBOX One S for x-mas, so am playing Super Lucky's Tale now. Very nice game.
From time to time I upload zip containing my working sample, as well as some sample code that puts an SDK to use, which I am working on in parallel to the sample app. The location is here: https://github.com/david-harding
