I would like to join as well.

Hello there, My name is Shuruni and I was just browsing the oculus rift forums from a search about anyone currently working on a 3D version of sword art online compatable with the oculus rift. I found this post and I came to this website and signed up because I would Like to help with creating the game. The only thing that may handicap me is that I have no experience with 3D or 2D game programming of any sort. I do have VERY minimal knowledge of the C++ & Python programming languages though. If there is anything I can do tho help with the production of the Sword Art Online game then I would be happy to help. I am a freshman in high school running an all honors schedule so I haven't had much time to learn more about the programming languages but If you need me to do something I will do my best (even if it requires looking up more things about programming languages or learning new programming languages or getting new software for game programming). I look forward to working with everyone here. Smile Very Happy

The game is being developed in Unity3D. This means you should download it and play with it. Do some tutorials, and get comfortable with one of the programming/scripting languages. I recommend javascript. Don't think you can do much at the start. "Sao_nxt generation" is doing a lot of work on the game right now, and you need to get good at some of the advanced stuff like scripts attached to player objects. Basically, in Unity you have a list of stuff in the current game scene. This is stuff like object models (trees, players, etc.). You can attach scripts to these things and also have scripts that handle bigger things in the game that can be considered attached to the world. Learn about what you can do with scripts attached to objects and begin experimenting. Right now nobody knows what you can do, and so we can't really do things like giving you a specific job. Show off everything you do that you think is cool right here in the forums. Post pictures, videos, or just descriptions. Once one of us sees what you're good at you can take over with a role doing something in the game. Try specializing in something within the realm of game developing. You don't have time to learn it all, so pick something and go with it. Is there something in particular that you'd like to do for the game? Something that you can become obsessed with?

I went to A website that teaches javascript and it said that I need to know HTML & CSS before I can learn Javascript. Is it necessary to learn this before learning javascript? Also can you give me an estimate as to how long it will take to learn javascript (and HTML & CSS if needed)? And I just downloaded Unity 3D and am going to start fiddling with it as soon as my schedule clears (currently I have Drivers written test, archery, poetry project,other homework,etc...) so it may be a good while before I get good enough at Unity 3D to be of much use  Sad , but I will do my best (頑張ります!) Smile Right now I'm not quite sure What I would like to do for the game (due to just looking at the complexity of the system) but it would be nice if I could do something like helping in writing code for NPCs or helping with the Player Interface Systems but it may be awhile before I can help out with stuff like that (just from my guess from looking at the fact that I have to learn Javascript and how to use the Unity 3D system I predict That I might be able to start helping somewhere around Late July at the earliest but I would still like your guess as to how long you think it will take me to learn enough to help out). Also what tutorials/lessons (Javascript & Unity 3D) do you recommend?

P.S. I only opened Unity 3D for a little bit just to see what it looked like and only did some quick research, because I have to study some more on the drivers manual for the my permit test tomorrow. Anyways, see ya! (じゃ またとで!) Cool

JavaScript is a web browser scripting language and so thats why you see that you need to know css and html. Except that here you are not doing web programming. Unity picked a few good easy to learn languages for scripting and one of them happens to be JavaScript. You do not need to learn css or HTML. Just pure JavaScript. Learn how to use variables, functions classes and everything. Of course now that I think about it, unity might support python, if you're more confortable with that. If you want to do things like character programming. Try this. Set up any of the example scenes in unity and put in a character model. Then add a script to it and try to make him interesting. Give him some good NPC AI code. Once you get good enough to where your characters are good enough for the game we can just copy over the script to one of the real game models.

Also, it doesn't take long to learn a new language. Especially because languages like c#, JavaScript, and python do memory management for you. They're a lot easier than c++. Should take you a few weeks to be okay with the new language.

Thanks fore the help, It is very helpful to me! I will start learning right away! Very Happy

EDIT: I just finished learning the basics to Javascript cheers from an awesome 30 minute video that goes CRAZY fast in teaching Javascript but I understood it better than reading a written tutorial for 2 hours.

Hey, try this : Unity-Game-Development-Essentials-ebook

(look for the book in google, and amazon, i cant post links!)

its amazing to start in unity 3d, go , read it, learn how to script, in that book you have javascript code, and C#, i actually go for C#, bcose allready know JAVA also starting with python, and also starting with web developement(html5, css3, python...), so, there is no problem, study what you want .

Also , take a look over here : thenewboston, google it , there are very good tutorials for javascript or C#, and a lot more things.


And if u have any questions or problems, fell free to ask in unity 3D forum comunity, but i can be secure, that u ll learn more and better, if u got first a book, make the book's examples, and the go for (more books, ors good youtube tutorials), u have to take a good point of view, that what is unity, scripting and 3D.

Goodluck this proyect!, sorry but i cant help too much at the moment, lot of work and lots of thing to do.

Bye!

thanks for the support cernos I took a look at the book and noticed that it was made during unity 2.5 and I didn't know whether or not that would cause any problems with things like outdated commands, so I just decided to stick to Youtube videos instead to help me learn Unity scripting. I've gotten pretty used to the setup of Unity now (at first I didn't know what anything on the entire screen was and was just pressing random things until something happened). Now all I need to do is learn more about scripting In unity as well as some object oriented programming. I'm pretty sure I've learned enough JavaScript get by and start learning some unity scripting functions.
