I would like a quotation for this project, and bids will be considered seriously for the forseeable future. I would like the program "RPG Maker 2003" by ASCII to be cloned completely, this program is used by indie game makers to create RPG (Role Playing Games) games. I would like the cloned software to include many big changes. Obviously, RM2k3, being a single player RPG maker, will need changes in the client, interface, etc so that it works as an MMORPG. I would like game(s) made with the program to have online capability, specifically, massivle-multiplayer-online (MMO) capability. For this, a server will also be needed. The server must work on Windows and Linux platform. Server, client, and maker all must be created in C++. Also required will be a management system for game-accounts on a web server, there will be an account registration form integrated into my website, when an account is created on the website the user can login to the game through the client. There are other (smaller) changes, upgrades and functionality improvements that I would like on the cloned program, which will be discussed with the winning bidder at a later time, but for now this is only to get a quotation. If you have any other questions about what is required, ask in your bid and I will do my best to answer them. Thanks, Simon.
