Does anyone here know actionscript at all? I wouldn't expect too many,
you do have to pay to use it for whatever you want.
I can write a simple game just to try the thing out using the SDL
library, but that would probably need to be in C or C++. I have
experience writing code in SD; no flash experience; no additional
hardware experience. I certainly can code something that will take
strength and direction as parameters though. So yea, if you can get it
into C++ and take care of the driver, I could write a simple game no sweat.
Like Karpeles said, is he looking for paid individuals?
Also, I got a late jump on looking for an internship because I didn't
know where I was going to land this summer (my mom moved to Alaska), so
now the landscape for that is thin if not bald. I've ended up in
Manchester, NH. Most of my time has been spent looking for a job. The
rest of my time has been spent helping out my friends in relatives
through their own tough situations and looking for transfer prospects
because UVM gave me a joke of a financial aid package for my senior year
(my junior year too, actually). Pay would certainly be welcome and would
help me allocate the time I need to write a simple game, or even a
multitude of simple games to show off the many different means in which
it can be used.
