Welcome to my portfolio. My name is Eric Meythaler. I'm a programmer at Army Game Studios/America's Army, where I've been since October, 2009. I am currently working on the America's Army Football outreach training software, which is developed using Unity3D in C#. Prior to the football project, I worked on America's Army: Proving Grounds in Unreal Engine 3. I have also worked extensively on several simulation projects using Unreal Engine 3, Unreal Engine 2, and the Virtual Battlespace 2 platform.
My favorite type of programming includes any kind of "back end" programming. Basically, I prefer to develop the systems and tools that makes game development possible, rather than write gameplay code itself. Not that I don't enjoy gameplay programming, I do; engine, graphics, and tools programming are my passions though. However, at America's Army, we do very little graphics and engine programming and I work primarily as a gameplay programmer, although I have done some engine work. Over the years, I have done quite a bit of tools programming work, including developing tools for side projects, and Ammunition Supply Point project, and the football project.
