    Default Job offers to program Hobo Wars

    Hello,
    I have a quick job to offer to any of those who are interested.
    My partner and I have outlined what we would like this RPG program to do, have a very, very basic frame..but are lacking any real coding.
    I was wondering if anyone would like to help us out and earn a little extra cash in the process?

    This program will be all text-based. It is titled "Hobo Wars" and involves the advancement of a hobo through 5 levels. Each level the hobo will learn 3 new attacks (the details to these will be included later). The program must involve multiple classes and basic java concepts, such as abstract classes, loops, etc. Nothing too complex! The deadline is tomorrow night, Wednesday, May 13 at 12 p.m. eastern.

    Help would be greatly appreciated!
    Please include your email address if you'd like to participate.

    Hello MooncakeZ and welcome to the Java Programming Forums.

    I have moved this thread over to our Paid Projects forum.

    Wow! Tomorrow night is a very short deadline. I can imagine something like this taking a good few days to complete. Is there any possibility of more time?

    How much is on offer?

    My apologies, but due to certain circumstances it must be by tomorrow night.
    I promise you, though, this program will be quite simple to write.

    Here is an overview:

    There are 5 levels. As the hobo advances each level, he transforms into the following people:
    (1)Hobo Andrew
    (2)Kevin
    (3)Conrad
    (4)Wenli
    (5)Mr. Jones

    Each level will have its own set of 3 attacks, which will then be selected by the player using the numbers 1, 2, or 3.
    The strength of the player's attack and the opponent's attack will both be generated by math.random(). One opponent must be defeated to advance to the 2nd level, 2 opponents must be defeated to advance to the 3rd level, etc. With each level, the attacks of the player and opponents will increase, so simply an integer will be added to math.random(). After 5 opponents have been defeated on the 5th level, the game is complete.

    I have never paid anyone to write me a program...How does $40 sound? If that is not sufficient, we can discuss the price further.

    Fair enough. Glad you got it completed. If you give me a bit more time in the future then I will probably be able to help you..

    Yes, I'm sorry about the time constraint. It was kind of a last-minute thing and didn't really expect anyone to take up the offer. But i'll keep that in mind!
