PostSubject: Application   Sun Feb 01, 2015 11:24 am

Hello, I posted on these forums once prior to the requirement of an application so I thought I'd make one.

Skills:
I am good(ish) with programming. (I've never managed to get c++ graphics(Direct X etc) to work, that's my only problem)
I am really good with chemistry.
I am great with biology.
I am alright with biochemistry.

Currently:
I am a freshman in High school.
I have been keeping up with these forums and reading almost every post I can at least once.
I have a lot of free time.
And to this date I have never sworn even once. (I don't know why I take so much pride in that)

Interests:
Biology (I have a really good microscope that I absolutely love too look at stuff under, and I have studied biology (particularly evolution) since I was young enough to pronounce the word evolution(but still hate Pokemon))
Programming (I have made several games all are not really good enough to note)
Engineering (because in order to do just about anything with my interests, you have to build something(except programming))
Math (WHY DOES NO ONE ELSE LIKE MATH IT'S NOT THAT HARD IT'S ALL PERFECTLY LOGICAL!!!)
Chemistry (I maintain a small lab in my basement)
Robotics (I am in my school's FIRST Robotics team, we are team 302 in case you are interested in any way)
Electronics (I absolutely LOVE 3D printers, I saved up my money for around 6 months to buy one and assembled it completely backwards (I actually mounted every component backwards in relation to the frame), my dad had to help me take it apart and reassemble it)
Physics (particularly astrophysics and just general space stuff(I designed a particle accelerator once but never built it))

Also as a side note I would like to say the progress you guys have made is amazing and personally I believe we should wait on 0.2.4 until cell membranes are implemented.

Lastly:
I tried to set up a compiling setup thing on windows and got the same error as a man with the username Patrick Rajesh as he posted on the "Miscellaneous Bugs And Questions That Don't Deserve Their Own Thread Thread" Thread, and was wondering if anyone could help the two of us, or in the case that he fixed it, tell me how it was fixed and possibly how it would be fixed on windows.

Hey Klay!
Welcome! Always good to have more programmers!

That is also quite low level and complex, I've only ever done some basic openGL myself. rarely in games will you actually want to work that low level. We are using a graphics library called Ogre for thrive, which handles most of the heavy lifting for us!

To get everything set up on windows you'll want to follow https://github.com/Revolutionary-Games/Thrive/blob/master/mingw_setup/readme.txt
Linux is a bit different, as you won't have to compile all of the libraries yourself, some can be installed with package managers (Looks like patrick needs to install bullet, I've asked moopli to take a look).

I just checked and there is a fix for the other guy but not for windows, the fix was basically to install the bullet library, but how would I do this on windows?

Application accepted. Expect an email inviting you to the Thrive Slack team (basically a high-power chat room) -- crovea, Cal and I are currently on there working through getting Cal's build set up, so you can join us. (I would love to be less terse, and talk more about all your interests, cuz you sound like a really awesome person and our interests intersect a lot, but I'm pretty busy with a bunch of Thrive work, which conveniently means now is a great time to join).

You can't install bullet on windows really, so we compile it ourselves with the script.
I just had another windows user report a similar issue tho.
if this directory
C:\mingw\temp\bullet\build-Release\lib
contains less than 7 files (probably 2), then you have the same issue as him.
If so, copy the contents of this zip: https://mega.co.nz/#!ZYolxSoT!P4jZgsJhNubXrNM_GsIk-cCFu6E0gWPeSDFcPsSxfNs
into
C:\mingw\install\lib
clear cmake cache and try again!
