2.how much time would it take to gain the knowledge equivalent to Henrik from a coding noob?
3.can i pull a req on git without knowing coding?
4.how many posts do i need to become a moderator?

4°) The number of posts is not related to the fact to be a moderator, look at me : I have more posts than several moderators and I am not one Wink

1. Don't start with C++. Start with Python to learn the logic, then later move to C++ if you like it. You can use a site like http://www.learnpython.org/ to learn some basics.
2. I'd say 10 years if you were quite skilled, maybe less. Otherwise, 20? 30? It takes time to learn and master low level programming.
3. Yes if you find a typo in the translations to fix
4. Speech is silver, silence is golden. A man's worth isn't determined by the amount of things he says but how he thinks and what he does then.

To the point about learning another language first, I've actually done more C++ in the last 9 months than I've done in the past ~18 years. Not that I'm any benchmark, but the most important thing is getting your head around logic and flow of things.

It sounds like you're pretty focused on moderators. Are you aiming to become one?

I'm not sure if Henrik was a part of any other emulators, but aren't Dolphin and PPSSPP already pretty good?

meh, dolphin could do with a rewrite of the vertex caching, but that needs some developers who care/motivated to do it.

If the staff is looking for a moderator, I'm here if you want Smile

I have already been a co-administrator in a forum twice in the past.
I can also monitor the french part of the forum given that french is my native language Smile
And of course I log in the forum everyday to check all the new posts ! Wink


RE: Varied questions - Henrik - 06-11-2013 06:10 PM

You're now a mod, vcntdj.

As for how long it takes to reach my level ... well, C++ has been my main programming language for 15 years now, I've done it professionally 6 years Smile

Although I did start the Dolphin project with only about 5 years of hobby-only C++ experience. Yeah, Dolphin is 10 years old this fall. Time flies.
