Programmer needed - I barter with 3d graphics

fademasterfademaster Posts: 16Member
Hello everybody. I need to make a simple app. not too simple but indeed possible to be made by one person.
It's all about putting a big image in background. scrolling it and managing from 1 to 6 mask layers (to simulate a torch effect).
I will care about the graphics part of this app

I can barter this programming with 3d and 2d graphics.

    Beautiful graphics you have done!
    Alas, all the videos are removed on youTube... ;{

    you can program yourself with GameSalad... easier to learn than many of those in your Vitae.

    we all will help you... just give it a try!

    I made a "video tutorial" on how to do it. (this linkworks)

    All the player (the dungeon master) should do, is loading an image for background and one or more (max 6) images to be used as grids. Now since it's the player who moves all the things. there is no need for the app to "know" what's going on.

    just making the squares glow when the "mouse" gets over them should be fine.

    no dice rolling, no automatic things like d&d insider etc, no 3d minatures. just coloured points to mark the players are enough. no animation. Maybe an mp3 player embedded should be fine (if it's lot of work, never mind for the sound)

    Monsters: Dm should place them in the map before all starts (HE makes the sprites, not the app). I suppose giving the app a multilayered image (like photoshop) should be easier for the player. He will need to make a project like the one I showed in the video.

    Obstacles: Since it's the dungeon master that makes the maps etc. he should be able to paint obstacles with a colour nobody ever uses in dungeons, like violet.

    No automatic rule, dice throwing etc.

    What surfacescapes and d&d insider makers don't realize is that DMs make the game, so they very often need to skip rules to make the game funny.

    Maybe my english is not so good, that's why I didn't get one point: Do I have to do it by myself?

    your English is fine!

    yes...you will be able to do it yourself! but you are not alone... we all work to help each other.

    see the videos

    but you should be using a MAC to use GameSalad...

    Well my purposal is to make an exchange.
    3d modeling is not hard for me (I have zbrus), we can seriously speed up each others' projects.

    I guess there a lot of people here that have no time to learn a 3d graphics program. So do I with programming. I hope I'll find a user who finds this barter convenient.
