    So I want to make a Wiiware game...

    I have an idea for a Wiiware game that I'm really trying to get made. I'm willing to put up $20k to fund the project.
    I'm a Musician, Flash Developer (Actionscript), Graphic Designer, and Photo Retoucher (retouchshoppe.com) professionally. I've put together a really nice presentation with artificial screenshots I've created in photoshop along with extremely detailed writings as to how everything functions. It's a very basic idea, the real idea behind it is the controls. The game only consists of two 3D models, the rest is all 2D and I'm able to handle a heck of a lot of the graphic work as well as provide all the music for the game. I can't go into anymore details as I'm requiring all those interested to sign a contract before the idea is shown to them.

    I need a programmer so your going to need to be proficient in C. I'm looking to keep this team down to just me and someone else so I need someone who's really resourceful like myself. It's definately something an artist and a programmer can achieve without the need for anyone else. We can go 50/50 on profits. Any takers?

    Moved to correct forum.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Try http://www.rentacoder.com/RentACoder/default.asp

    There are roughly two kinds of programmers on this board
    - a lot of transient newbies who couldn't help you even if they wanted to - they don't have the skills to carry 50% of a project.
    - a handful of seasoned experts who probably have jobs already and therefore don't have the time to commit to something like this.

    I dont think $20k is going to cover the development tools for Wii, but I could be wrong, I haven't seen any open source tools for Wii development.

    If your idea is really so groundbreaking, submit a design proposal to a developer that can afford to fund such a project. But trust me, yoru idea probably isnt anything new, and noone is going to sign an NDA without at least knowing the nature of the project. $20k will barely cover 6 months salary for a regular programmer, maybe 3-4 months for a highly resourcesful programmer. So assuming you have the design proposal and requirements document and all the artwork and get the development tools for free and find someone who can pull this off, you still have to get copies fo the game made. Most retailers aren't going to stock your game unless you provide them with 50,000 copies. Then you have liscensing fee's from Nintendo, distribution costs, etc.

    In short, there is a reason most games cost >$1 million to develop.

    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    Ill help if you want

    I am a 17 years old, but have been programming since i was 13. I know im young but im good at what do. I know c++/c the best, i can do some 3d modeling with blender 3D, and i have code lots of things in wargames, and hacking challenges here is something im working on right now
    #include "stdafx.h"
    #include "winsock2.h"
    #include
    #include
    using namespace std;
    int main(void){
    WSADATA wsaData;
    int iResult = WSAStartup(MAKEWORD(2,2), &wsaData);
    if(iResult != NO_ERROR){printf("wsa startup error");}
    const char IP[] = "69.55.233.82";
    const unsigned int port = 5842;
    SOCKET sock;
    sock = socket(AF_INET,SOCK_STREAM,IPPROTO_TCP);
    //----------------------
    // The sockaddr_in structure specifies the address family,
    // IP address, and port of the server to be connected to.
    sockaddr_in clientService;
    clientService.sin_family = AF_INET;
    clientService.sin_addr.s_addr = inet_addr(IP);
    clientService.sin_port = htons(port);
    // Connect to server.
    /*if ( connect( sock, (SOCKADDR*) &clientService, sizeof(clientService) ) == SOCKET_ERROR) {
    printf( "Failed to connect.\n" );
    WSACleanup();
    return 0;}*/
    connect( sock, (SOCKADDR*) &clientService, sizeof(clientService));
    int a,b,c,d,x;
    int answer[1024];
    recv(sock,(char*)&a,sizeof(unsigned int),0);
    recv(sock,(char*)&b,sizeof(unsigned int),0);
    recv(sock,(char*)&c,sizeof(unsigned int),0);
    recv(sock,(char*)&d,sizeof(unsigned int),0);
    printf("a is %d, b is %d, c is %d, d is %d \n", a, b, c, d);
    x = a+b+c+d;
    printf("x is %d \n", x);
    send(sock,(char*)&x,sizeof(int),0);
    recv(sock,(char*)&answer[1024],sizeof(answer),0);
    printf("the answer is %s\n",answer);
    cin.get();
    return 0;
    }
    its small all it does it connects to a server recieve four unsigned int send them back, but i am working on my networking on this challenge, and networking should come in handy. I also think you might wanna use c# because there is already a library i dont have a wii so i could tell yo if theres a library for wii so if you interested.

    Skipping the code tags doesn't make you appear as qualified as with them, though.
    And this Winsock will help you nothing. Programming for a console is not the same as programming for a PC. They don't even have winsock on wii!

    But I don't really think the game is going to cost >= $1 million. This is WiiWare we're talking about, not distributed hard media games with lots of 3D graphics.

    this post is over 6 months old, itll probably be closed soon, but until then just keep in mind that software development is significantly more expensive than people think unless you go open source where you can get a lot of volunteer labor.
