Bethesda Softworks - Dev Profile
Bethesda's Inside the Vault talks to programmer Orin Tresnjak:
What is the best part about bring a programmer? The worst part?
The ABSOLUTE best part for me as a graphics guy is when I get some effect or other complex system I’ve been working on finally showing up on screen. Then I can commence the real fun–tweaking and perfecting it. It can also be very rewarding tracking down obscure, difficult bugs. Maddening, but rewarding. You feel like a million bucks once you’ve figured it out.
On the other hand, the worst part is when I spend ten hours tracking down some hard-to-find bug, only to discover that it’s traceable to some minor typo I made a year ago.
