    Graphic Artist / Skinner Needed!

    I've been developing a carputer interface application and I am in desperate need of a skinner. The graphic artist I was working with just quit because of time issues. This is not vaporware. The application is nearing the end of the development cycle after about three years of designing and implementing it and it should be functionally complete sometime in August and and ready for release by December.

    Skinning the application will be no small project. At least 200 individual files will be needed for all the controls used by the program. The skin, however, is just image files, it does not allow configuring the layout of the different images, they are all hard coded in at specific locations in the program itself. This compromise had to made to achieve the level of usability and complexity that the program delivers, but should make skinning an easier process. The program is based in Direct3D and takes advantage of the transparency and animiation abilities of 3D cards as well as real-time resizing of the skin to the proper resolution so only a single skin will have to be developed.

    This will be a commercial software application. It is backed by an LLC started for the project and already has a partnership with an established car audio company to deliver a hardware bundle for the software. The skinner will recieve a percentage of the profits made by the application for developing it.

    I'm not going to post more about the program online until it is ready to ship, but it does have many capabilities above and beyond whats available now.

    I will expect at least 10 hours a week of work for this project from the skinner and only want canidates who are familar with carputers. Do not bother applying if you are not ready to devote a significant portion of your free time to help make this project a reality.

    If you are possibly interested in developing the skin for this program, please submit a preview of any relevant work you have done in the past to [email protected] This can be skins for other carputer applications or for other things like video games or any project involving digital images. I will go into a lot more detail about the program's capabilities and show a short demo to successful applicants as well as describe the complete expectations and benefits of the position.

    Wow...what a teaser!
    Sounds great. Any program info you'd like to share?
    I can't help you with skinning but I'd be very interested to know more about this since I try to find software to couple my carpc hardware bundle (I'll start selling them in eastern Europe by September).I currently use myHTPC as base for the initial release but I'm trying to find something better.

    Anyway I wish you best of luck

    Cheers.

    Dude, I called that number and the dude who answered didn't know any junior... Whats up with that, I want to get paid already!

    For those of you reading this who have no clue what were talking about go to the site in my sig... Also note that site is from a couple years ago the car and the software on there has little to do with the software being talked about in this thread.

    I'm really not going to publicly answer many questions about the software until its completely done as I don't see any point in getting everyone excited about something that won't be publically avaiable until December or developing a reputation as unstable by demoing unfinished software.

    2 years... Don't get me started on over-hyped games. I've been waiting for Duke Nukem Forever for like 5 years.

    You should contact Febsperanze, If he skins your app, its more than likely to be a hit with the crowd here, he does fantastic work. His web site is
