Oh hi my beautiful people

Hello everyone! My name is Iliya (pronouncing - Ee-lee-ya), I'm 24 years old and I am big fan of both LBA games. As you may guess, I'm not a native English speaker (I am russian), but I'm really put the effort into learning the language.
The reason I came on this site is I really want to help you people with your fan-made games. I am a programmer (not bad programmer, i think), i have a math bachelor degree (and want to go for master degree next year) and I am writing on C++/C#/Python for a living. I was interested in game development since i was in high school, i wrote some games (ok, not games, to be honest, all my projects was just technical demos for barely-done engine, and have zero gameplay, but hey - at least I learned something from OpenGL, DirectX and 3d math ) Now i
I really want to finally jump into indie game development and i really want to help fan base of these great games.

Hey Iliya, welcome!!!

Your english looks very good for a non-native speaker, if I can say so myself (its the same with me, I'm Brazilian), so you shouldn't worry about that

Please, feel free to ask anything around here if you ever have the need to do so! Also, regarding the projects, we have many around here; some deactivated, some on hold, some walking very slowly and some still on active. You should take a look on the specific forum section designed for them and talk to the creators of the one/ones you like the most, I think their names are listed on the first post of every project that was created in here.

Btw, your nickname "Morte" means Death in my country :P

Thanks! I am big fan of Noah Antwhiler a.k.a. "Spoony", so I needed to learn language at least at this level because of lack of translations . Well, this, and regular MSDN reading at work. But even still, my grammar skill is very lame - I'm working on it.

When i tried to register at the first time (for some reason, confirmation mail was not sent), I picked "Impaled" - nickname, which I often use on each forum.

Well, I am also oldschool RPG lover, and the game called Planescape: Torment especially. My favorite character from this game was Morte - blatant snarking flying skull. So i picked this nickname - it was the first thing came to my mind.



And that's why i put Tingle on my avatar. Because, you know, logic and stuff.

Ilya? First thing that came to my mind:
Spoiler:

I don't think that a 24-year old programmer can be this cute. That's a shame.


Irrelevant references aside, welcome!

И добро пожаловать, соотечественник!

Welcome Hope you'll enjoy it here and stay for long !

Btw, your grammar doesn't seem bad... There are some mistakes but not much, your english in general is quite good ! (For me, at least.)

Actually, I watched only a few animes, so I cannot estimate the reference. But it's a girl (I think) - as well as Ilia from Twilight Princess, so it's kinda disturbing for me. But, believe it or not, Iliya is my passport name, instead of more usual Ilya (В смысле, там написано Илия, а не Илья. Соотечественник, ха, вот уж не думал.)

Oh. Meatballs, spaghetti and mamma-mia mustaches. I hope this was stereotypical as well as your greeting.
Also, you've forgot to mention bears and balalaika.

Not exactly, it just that it's written "kurva" in hungarian, and "kurwa" in polish

Good job, but you could do better welcome aboard it's a shame you registered in such an "unactive era" of the forums, you seem cool.
Yeah, it's weird I didn't mention the balalaika, or the bears, especially because I love the story of the Wojtek bear. Pretty awesome...
