matthew180 Posted August 10, 2011 Share Posted August 10, 2011 (edited) As per a conversation from another thread, I'm offering this thread as a melding pot for *software* (we have enough hardware projects to keep us busy for years) ideas, suggestions, and anyone who will volunteer to head one up. It would be nice to have three lists: 1. People willing to work on stuff and their ability / what they can contribute. Keep in mind that we need more than just "programmers". A successful project needs a leader (ONE LEADER) to make final decisions and pull everything together (a director / producer), graphics, sounds, code, testing, etc. 2. A list of suggested projects that people would like to see on the 99/4A. If you make a suggestion, please provide DETAILS! A suggestion like "an RPG" is useless, so please don't offer a suggestion if you don't have more than that to say about the idea. Having a list of "wants" gives a good starting point for those interested in working on something. We could use the "like" button feature of the forum to indicate which projects people are most interested in. Since I'm starting the thread, I will also try to edit this post and keep the list updated and a summary of the interest in each suggested project. 3. A list of the projects currently being worked on so people can get an idea of where they might help if they want to, or what might be coming down the line soon. PEOPLE: matthew180: I'm an assembly programmer, tools developer, and good at small to medium size modules. I'm good with the VDP and CPU, not so familiar with disk or I/O, but only because I never had a reason to do it on the 99/4A (I am capable of learning though... ) I like to optimize for speed and efficient code. I really like mazes for some reason, algorithms, parsers, language development, graphics, and sound (although I'm not so good at *making* graphics or sound.) UnderExtended (Rich G.): I'm a TIer who is happy to contribute to projects. I enjoy doing pixel art and game design. Even though I don't post here much, I usually keep up with things regularly. I can get artwork done quickly if needed. PROJECT IDEAS: * none ACTIVE PROJECTS: * none Edited August 31, 2011 by matthew180 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
