Invite-only user group. The purpose it to attract more programmers to MPGH.
To qualify you must have sufficient knowledge in one of the listed skills, and have someone test you on them. Reference pages such as MSDN Library are allowed during the tests, however, you're not allowed to search for refference on basic language syntax etc. You will be monitored throughout the test on TeamV, and will have up to a varying 1-4 hours to complete the test(depending on reviewer). You are not rated on time.
Some segments of the user group may not be participating in projects that the groups decides to work on, for example, if we are reversing malware, the graphics segment of the team will not be participating. The development team will be creating projects that are not limited to hacks. Generally it won't be hacking related, but at some times we may choose to take part in such activities, depending on the group decisions.
One of the below skills are required to join the group(ASM is an addition and does not count for one.) :
Basic Assembly(Suggested for most events taking place in dev team, though not fully required)
C\C++ (Projects will be in C++ for the use of objects)
Flash AS 2.0 - 3.0.
Photoshop - Texture Design
Photoshop - Interface Design
Modeling - Rigging, animations, etc
During the test, you will be rated on the following(Applies only to programmers) :
Neatness of code, init\deinit objects correctly, memory management, pointers, etc. 45%
Correct use of structs, enumerators, classes, namespaces, and arrays 30%
Well organized code making use of source files and header files accordingly 10%
Correct use of platform APIs %15
You must have above 70% to join. When working with games, an interface should be built by the programmers working with the render-code so those who have little knowledge of DirectX can add, create, and modify objects in the world with ease.
As a member of the team you must :
Participate in weekly events, or projects.
Help other members within the development team.
Help other users on the forum if they have issues.
Put effort towards working together as a team, and having fun.
Hope you're looking forward to it. Contact me, or get a staff member confident with the subject you wish to be tested on to test you, and send me or administrators the results.
Those testing users :
You must be a staff member confident in the topic, or a qualified user by staff. Give a review in the following format :
