Meet the OMG! Team: TheBlackDead
Welcome in the “Meet the OMG Team” section where we will introduce you to the different members of the Online Modding Group. It is always exciting to know more about the people that work on something you play and therefore we thought it might be a good addition to our regular updates. After starting last update with Vert-X we will continue with our Lead Programmer TheBlackDead.

 Hello, my name is Simone “TheBlackDead” Angeloni. I am 23 years old and I live in Rome, Italy. I am working for this project as Lead Programmer, what means that I’m developing our core system in C++ and LUA languages, building our custom .dll file used to run everything included in CrysisWars EX. Coordinating the tasks of our programmer team is one of my other tasks. I am controlling their work and debug it until I don´t find any issue anymore. I work in C and C++ till 8 years and I  should say that I am a good programmer, but I prefer let the others judge this. This is by the way the first time that I am working at such a big project to rebuild or improve parts of a videogame. It is a very interesting job which improved my C++ skill quite a lot. I am looking forward to see our first version released and used by all of you.
