Default How did you start coding?

Me, I started coding casually. After a playtime of 3 hours on a TDM server, I went exploring my SA-MP folder. And when I found pawno.exe I was like
"What the heck is this.. A .exe file in SAMP folder.. Should be some sort minigame developers leave in game folders"
I still remember the feeling when I opened that horrible editor. Never ever thought it'd catch my attention that much. That "build" button ended the job in the end. It made me realize it was something to create gamemodes!
The only thing I was able to do was to SendClientMessage with odd colors and use SetPlayerPos.
I play SAMP since some years, 2013. If only I would have opened that .exe earlier.. Maybe I'd have taken another path in my life.

Default Re: [MEMORIES] How did you start coding?

I didn't start that newbie-ish. I just found out the wiki and realized that I could make scripts and then began writing snippets and downloading scripts and editing them then I began writing my own filterscripts and later on I figured out how to make the basic concepts of a game mode which helped me make great modes. After years of scripting I mastered the language itself and became capable of doing many things that I thought it's impossible to achieve. By the end of the day, nothing is impossible.

Same, I've started coding PAWN when I found out about an Albanian server which was using NGG script and by looking up on forums I started being interested.

Liked a server I was admin at. Wanted to do the same. Made my first (and quite frankly bad!) freeroam script.

I wanted to create a rip-off of a freeroam server which you all can guess.
