Hi all,
don't know if I'm the oldest Stencyler at 55 years of age but would be impressed to hear from anyone more senior. I am a paramedic in  Australia. Love my job but its important to have an engaging hobby. I cannot remember (dementia?) how I happened to come across Stencyl but as I have always enjoyed varied video games and technology it looked like it was worth a try. Three years later I've virtually completed my first game and just paid my studio license for use of Stencyl. I have absolutely no background in coding so I'm very pleased with what Stencyl has allowed me to do.

Working with Xcode, provisioning profiles and all the bits needed to publish is becoming a pain in the butt. No fun at all. Having come this far the prospect of giving up is repugnant. So...I'll be asking questions of the forum in the days to come. Any help is appreciated.

Games I've played over the years...first ever computer game was a linear graphic based upon gridiron in which a ball shaped element bounced back and forth on a horizontal line, the mechanics of the ball's movement referenced against some kind of randomizer that was affected by play decisions such as whether to punt, pass, defend etc. The computer was owned by the high school I attended (circa 1977) and the manufacturer's name was "Wang". Yep...I played with a Wang. It was rectangular mainframe about 1.5 metres square and 2 metres high, sitting snugly inside a heavy metal cabinet. At the time it was used to teach Basic language.

Most favourite games since have included Crash Bandicoot, Pandimonium, Metal Gear Solid, Tombraider, Need for Speed, Ratchet and Clank, Halo, Fallout, Gears of War, Skyrim, Dishouroured etc.

Enough rambling. Get an old person started and they don't want to stop,

Cheers owee
