Man, I need a programming project BAD. I haven't started anything in months. I've been programming, but it's just messing around with OpenGL to learn it. See, I have a whole notebook full of planned projects, but I'm waiting until I get a grip on OpenGL to do them. So I need some kind of project to do for somebody else. I've been looking through sourceforge, gamedev.net, gametutorials, I just can't find anything that looks the slightest bit interesting, or I have skills to do. The Developers Alliance is STILL on the funky factory thing, so it's gonna be a while until I can program stuff for them.
Does ANYBODY out there on the face of this planet have a sensible project I can help them out with? I'm sick of e-mailing people and finding out that they are complete n00bs, and they want me to make their entire game without any planning or even a storyline to go by. "I'm an artist, and I want you to program an uber-engine, and I'll plug some graphics in and take all the credit for it! You'll just be in small print on the about screen." I'm sick of that kind of crap.
PS: I WORK FOR FREE! I just want to work with someone to make a little free game, preferably an RPG, but any game (besides puzzles) will be fine.
These are some skills I have:
I can do Linux and Windows stuff
I am 1337 at Allegro stuff
I can do some DirectX, mostly Direct3D 9
I am learning OpenGL (this is now my API of choice)
I can do all kinds of networking stuff (including BSD and Windows sockets)
I can program POSIX and Windows threads
I have been commented on how clean and organized my code is
I consider myself an excellent game designer and team worker
I always leave my code open-ended (meaning you can add or remove stuff from it VERY easily. i.e. and engine )
I know several scripting languages, including, but not limited to, Lua, Perl, Python, PHP, and several languages I've made myself)
Hardcoding is the Devil!
I can usually program 3 < hours < 10 a day
I can send you dirty pictures! (just kidding)
