    Name: Dustin

    Date of birth: 09/1987

    Languages (Programming and/or other): C++, VB .net and java(heavily weighted towards C++ at the moment)

    Skills / Experience: I last applied right around the end of October of last year. In 2 and a half months with the source I've gone from identifying a single variable that needed to be changed for a quick hotfix to creating my own custom Anti Lead and adding an advanced Blitzkrieg upgrade system into the game. Videos don't do justice to all of the things going on in the background for what ive done because of some of the optimizations I've added to the game, but they do show the end result. I tend to design and code for the future with what may be desired in mind instead of what is required at the moment, that way future requests are quicker and easier to add. Coding has always been a hobby for me that i started years ago and took courses in college for. I do not claim to be perfect and i'm not a professional coder by any means, but i think i can get the job done fairly well. I like working in teams on large projects, saves a lot of time and is always interesting to see how other people try to do things and you learn a lot. I think half the reason that i do it is "If i don't, who will?" so then i end up doing it, because even if it doesn't get used at least i get to experience it, but I want everyone to be able to experience fun and cool features, which is why i share some of my videos from time to time and donate my code. In the past i had the role of managing and maintaining game servers for clans in other games and making mods. So i understand fairly well the responsibilities, difficulties and fun of staff positions. Most people behaved pretty well in my experience but sometimes the iron fist is required , of course it wasn't the gunz community, haha.

    Proof of work:

    Blitzkrieg Upgrades (not completely finished, i have 3 of the 6 or so upgrades, framework is done though) can be implemented into new game types or all existing ones as an option.

    Custom Anti Lead (i missed a shot on the 100 ping woops...my aim, it was 15 hits haha)

    Closing: I enjoy playing gunz just as much as i enjoy coding things for it. But I've always loved seeing people enjoy things I've created! I like answering questions for the community about how things work and just interacting with them in general, when they are nice and not trolling me! haha. I'm usually pretty laid back in many things i do but know when to get down to it and take things seriously. If i'm accepted i hope i can help to make the journey a fun one for all, staff and normal players. Even for those little potato computers out there xP. I hope everyone that reads through this long application enjoys it!

    My personal opinion: Your contributions are weird and strange, very niche and specific...






    ...just like mine. I like you and I see a lot of myself in your ability to perform and code.

    You are self driven and have contributed in the past to our project. I absolutely would want you to be a part of our team. Let's make some cool stuff together

    Nice application, just a couple of questions.


    • Say we were to give you a task to create a new gamemode like Blitzkrieg or Spymode, would that be a problem?
    • In addition to above question, how experienced do you consider yourself with the GunZ source code?
    • In case we accept you to the team we obviously can't give you access to our source code for a while, would it be a problem for you to work with the leaked FGunZ source for an unspecified amount of time?
    It's a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you're ready.
    I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything.
    There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now.
    And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any.

    No problem now. I still intend to finish my blitzkrieg mode, the upgrades are pretty much done, just got sidetracked on my anti lead haha.

    I feel really familiar with the source code now compared to when i applied before. Back then id say i wasn't ready, now i would say i'm ready. In my opinion there is always something to learn though.

    I have been using the vanilla 1.5 source as the base for all my projects. I use the leaked FGunz source for reference very rarely but i can switch over. You can still make good code with just the regular source in my opinion. So i have no issues not having access to the current source of Fgunz.

    Alright, welcome to the team as a trial coder.
    The trial period will end whenever we feel like you're ready, if everything goes well then you can consider yourself as an official developer at FGunZ.

    PM me your Skype information so we can get started.
