Too bad I started using the wii right after that died :c
And not the mii one? That was the shit.
If it's something a complete beginner could do I could look into it, but as it is I have no idea how to make 3ds homebrew and minimal python knowledge.
It is something a beginner can handle. Start playing around with lua for the client, that would be the simplest way to develop homebrew. For the server you can use whatever you are more comfortable with, that could even be python.
Alright, I see! My dad is a software developer, I'll have to see if has any experience with Lua to help out.
(he's been dying to teach me how to program for years lmao)
Do servers cost, though? I can't get a job for reasons.
At it's very basic, I'd just be a simple multiple choice program where the input gets sent to the server, yes?
I'd like to include other things, but I can't really remember what features everyone votes had besides, you know... Voting.
Your dad is a developer?! You are so so lucky!
Yup! Taught it to himself back in like the 70s
Apparently everyone on his side of family does the same work, so when I told him I was interested in this scene he got really happy.
My dad doesn't know how to use even a computer... . Your family seems very interesting!
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Neither does my mom, don't worry!
I mean, she can use facebook, but that's about it.
Turns out he doesn't know lua though. I should be fine on my own, just gotta find a place that teaches it in a way that I can understand if possible.
I'll probably run through luatut in the next day or so and see how that goes. Unless anyone knows a more hands on approach.
I know a little bit of lua, but not enough to be useful (i think)
I mean, you know more than me.
I have a feeling I should back off and let someone who knows what they're doing take control, but I love pushing myself like this???
I apologize in advance if I give up, though.
I might give this a whirl. Seems like an interesting concept, and I loved it when it was on the wii
With coding, or just using if something like this gets released?
If you have an interest in it, I'm fine handing the reigns to you.
It sounds fun to me, but if someone would have more fun with it and knows what they're doing that's fine.
Both, lol. I am going to try in cpp since it is the language I have grown with
I don't really want to put a damper on this.
But to get tjis done correctly you need a database on the server side. Make users able to enter a contest which has a db table snd all userdata things are stored and can be requested from there.
Votes have to be combined with the user data to prevent ppl to be able to vote infinite times.
The Client is no to much work it just needs some functions and make it able to handle specific packet structs etc.
But the server end is a huge part and this is really not a beginners task.
I've seen people who've taken networking classes struggle woth database entries etc.
I don't think it's as easy as you think it is. It needs some planning and some adcanced knowledge. And without some kind of server this is impossible to set up (I guess that's the smallest problem here)
No, I think being real is super important. Thank you very much for your input.
I have a habit of biting off more than I can chew, so someone saying "I don't think this is easy enough." is very helpful.
I'll go ahead and back off it then. If someone wants to take the reigns please feel free to.
If you have any work suited for a beginner, I'm happy to help with that.
I'm more skilled in the art area anyways, so if any sort of graphics are ever needed let me know. I can draw and do basic 3d modeling.
We are in 2016, the amount of resources for creating a simple REST api should make it easy for someone with basic programming knowledge whip something up. You guys have to see that this is just a hobby project, it just has to work and there is no money in play. And you don't really need to pay for a server since any free tier on a "cloud" server will do just fine for the amount of traffic.
I know it's a hobby, and it does sound like fun, AND I can do my best to learn it.
But if there is interest in it, I don't want to come in and take it over knowing nothing and then disappoint anyone.
Or, then have it become a failed project where then no one really wants to take it back up.
With that in mind, I still might do something. I've been poking around this and saw you can write it in C which my dad knows, so I'd have someone who knows what they're doing by my side, but if I ever do make it and/or release it I think I'm going to keep the development in secret. I'm sorry if that's bad, I just really don't want to be wishy washy on this.
Its your call, and if your dad is going to help you I guess that's even better. There is a stickied development help thread in case you run into problems. Good luck.
Thank you. Sorry if I responded weirdly to what either of you said, I really like to remain passive and try to accommodate everyone though that's naive since you really can't.
Thank you again for the support, though. Good luck with any projects you're working on/are going to work on too!
On topic of the thread though, good luck to whoever gives a shot at this too!
