I don't know anything about what happened previously, but my opinion is that perhaps it wouldn't be difficult to find willing coders if the project was alive & well on its way with enough interested parties to take care of the less technical portions, like art, plot & script, possibly music, some vision of gameplay... I think if I were a coder, I would be much more interested in lending time and effort to a project that was alive and going strong in its other areas of creation instead of just signing on to something that was still in its conceptual infancy
That is exactly how I was feeling when I started to try and get interest back into the project, but I don't think everyone here agrees with that train of thought. We need to build a strong base for the story and things of that nature before we tackle the other beast that is the systems end of things. And hell, to be totally honest, I don't mind if we turn this into an elaborate fan fiction, I could see this being a pretty badass online graphic novel.
I also feel the same way Yensoo, whoever is in "Charge" should be so over what they are doing and that should probably be about it.
About Jack's concerns, I can use RMXP(or VX), no problem have I made anything worth looking at, no I am probably like the other 98% of RMXP users who have it but have not made anything of note. I am much more a visual and not so much a logical worker but I can use it with some skill. And if I don't know how to use a specific feature, guess what I won't sit and cry about it, I'll go and learn.
Implementing Scripts is a no brainer, once we have them. I do low level programming myself (more coding for dumb languages, Java, JS, html, CSS... Etc.) and can understand most scripts when I have time to look over them and read into them for a bit. No biggy, Ruby and RGSS are OOP Languages and given a bit of time I can contribute to the codes as well. And trust me if it had looked like it would turn into something full time I would have not even bothered.
I'm almost certain that we don't have a script yet, but that will bring me to my point later. Tonight I will create a wiki and provide everyone with login information so that we can work on figuring out if we can get this dead horse on the move(I'm no necromancer...). From the sound of what I have heard though this may truely be a snafu. I think we should take this somewhere else to collab before Suikosource starts raging at us for being so active lately. Yensoo and I have MSN, PM me here and let me know the best way to get ahold of you and I'll see if we can get something figured out Flufflez.
