I'm a pretty good writer. What needs to be written that I can help with?

So, I can do C++ programming and I was thinking of just creating my own version of this, depending on if this is still in active development. If its in development still, Id like to help out on the C++ and/or Visual Basic side. I dont know VB that well, but its not difficult at all to learn.

If you are interested in my help, email me at markmckinleyshred (at) gmail (dot) com.

This isn't really up to me to answer, but I'll say something anyway.

Your help is probably very welcome. Braindead, Aardless, Crusher, Nudibranch, Wabbit?

Braindead. He's the administrator of the code repository.

But, yes, more help is always welcome.

Yeah it's Braindead who manages that kind of stuff. He'll be around sooner or later.

So, if anyone has access to any of the gui artwork for mxp, and would like to pass it on my way, Id be eternally grateful. Ive been laying out the GUI today, and most of it is in place, but not quite functional yet, as I only have barebones everything else. Getting the gui going first is helpful in displaying everything else, obviously.

If possible, images for the Town Icons, Title screen stuff like the MXP logo (if there is one) any any other stuff I dont need at the moment like, monster, items portraits, etc..

Also, Ill be using the formulas posted on the wiki, unless you guys have better ones.

Gui so far, based on an old screen shot of mxp. I figured Id try to keep it as close to mxp as possible.


Title Screen


Town

Is the old stuff lost, are you guys having to start from scratch all over again?

And what happened to Braindead? sad.gif

I've worked on small & large modding projects over the years, and I'm always surprised and saddened how few source codes are ever released. If/when Braindead comes back, we really need to get this to somewhere like GitHub. That way if somebody leaves it doesn't matter; all the code is still there.

This goes with all the tools and editors as well. This stuff should all be open source and available in a public repository. I literally cannot count the number of projects I've seen die because the source was never made public sad.gif

I don't think the agreement with Decklin allows the MXP code to be open source.

Of course Github allows private repositories too, but then there is a cost implication.

That doesn't mean there shouldn't be version control of course; a distributed project of this size is not feasible without it. But there are political considerations as well as technical ones governing what and where that should be.

As for the various editors and so on, I believe they were mostly contributed by individual volunteers rather than as part of a coordinated effort. Getting the source code where possible would be useful, but requiring it is tricky. - It's better to have the tool with no code than no tool at all.
