A Simple Proposal

  • I'd like a Something Awful Forums account.

    Thing is, I don't have a credit card.

    So I propose an alternative method of payment.

    I will make any Windows program, up to a reasonable complexity, in exchange for a gift certificate emailed to me.

    Post your proposal here or PM/email it and I'll consider it.

    Ever wanted something to convert between two weird formats/convert full movies to .gif/a custom auto-updater/a custom calculator/whatever, and have 10 bucks to spare?

    A few notes:

    * I'll probably be making it in C#, so you'll need the .NET framework. There's a chance it'll run on *nix with WINE/Crossover and Mono, but don't count on that.

    * After you've agreed and we've confirmed the specs, I'll work on the app.

    * Once it's done, I'll make a crippled demo version and send it to you. Then you send the gift cert, and I'll send you the full version.

    * You will own the application, and can do what you wish with it, including selling it as yours.

    That's all. Any takers?

  • How do we know the "crippled version" isn't the only version?

    Well if you see the Crippled version obviously there is a real version.

    @ Mr Wolf: FYI A Crippled version is a full working version that has 1 part disabled. For example. A word processor without a save or a print function. So you can make a full test but missing a key component.

    That. Unless you mean 'how do I know you'll actually send me the full version' in which case you'll just have to trust that I'm not a wanker.

    I know what a crippled version is and yeah, I was just checking.

  • This is a cool idea, but I can't think of anything that hasn't been done! (I was going to ask for an app that creates and uses keyboard macros, but then I found AutoHotKey.)

    If you're able to, maybe you should expand the proposal to include plugins/behaviours? There's always a ton of stuff floating around in Feature Requests.

  • lol, I can think of at least two plugins I would pay for and at least three shaders. Although I am slowly working my way through one of those shaders myself.

  • (I have an offer now, but I'm still interested in coding in exchange for an account upgrade, which is the same price )

    Regarding plugins/behaviors, I have considerably less C++ experience than C#, so no guarantees, but feel free to propose something and I'll consider it.

    @6fix: Go ahead, what are they?

  • Very nice idea ^^

  • Well that's cool you found someone to help you out. As for my "list" I don't actually need them quite yet. Besides, I think one of the shaders might need a minimum of PS 3.0 because of a large number of instructions.

    Thanks anyways. I will probably find someone down the road to help though

  • As a Goon, I will welcome you into the Family once you have completed you application for your benefactor.
