sword of the samurai

10 March 2012 - 03:53 AM

hello,
like to ask some of the more seasoned vets here their opinion and make a proposition.
i've always been fascinated by this old game by microprose.
Sword of the samurai.

If some of you old timers have played the game,how much coding do you wager went into this ?
With today's tools,is it possible to make the game as a one man show.
If possible,what is the time frame this can be coded in and what would it cost you.
having done basic c++ game engine programming(3D buzz vtm's) i think i can manage some aspects but the entire project still looks overwhelming.
I need a very experienced guide to help mentor me,someone who could knock this out blind folded (may be a retired coder or a whiz kid )
Finally,how much money would you think is fair trade for such guidance / mentorship.
This is not a commercial project. Just a personal hobby project i wanted to get done over the years.
thank you so much for your time.

ring conforms to the circumference of a sphere

07 December 2008 - 10:47 PM

Hi, Scenario: 1. a sphere of radius: 100 2. a circle shape of radius: 100 3.I align the circle to the sphere I want the circle to start with radius 100 and when i take it(or animate) down to the bottom of the sphere(pole) it should zero out in radius. Ring conforms to the circumference on each step of it's way down. What would the math be in this situation. i could hack this by: 1.At each step along it's down path(circle Pivot) shoot a ray to the sphere and use the the magnitude to drive the radius. but that wont further my mathematical understanding of the problem. Thanks for any help. b
