Okay, I need some peoples help here. Despite what a number of people have said/suggested, im going to go ahead and build a web based army builder type application, that is run off database. I know alot of people wont use it, and will think it rubbish, but I also know there are a few that will. Plus I need to strengthen my ASP skills for other reasons.
Now why its possible for one person to do it alone...I don't want to. That's where I need the LO community! If you are interested in helping me out, please let me know.
Firstly, I need to know that people will use it. There is ALOT of programming work behind it, and will take some time. I really want to see it complete, but i need to know that others will use it.
Secondly, I need people to test it. Basicly, your job is to break the damn thing. I need it to be user tested at various stages, and I need input into what to change/add etc.
Thirdy, I may need some help eventully in populating the database. There will be a seperate database for each army. This is just done in Access so its not to complex.
There are a bunch of other things that i need, but thats all I can think of. If you dont want to do any of the above, then please, just help me with this one thing:
I need to know how the army list should be set out. It will be printable, but I need to find the best way to set out the list. If I can get some comments on this it would be fantastic!
I'll do whatever I can to help. Just give me a job. Ive got a Nid codex and some time on my hands.

I have some programming skill, and I will be very happy to do anything, including BETA testing... I am on veacation with my father (hench i have a lot of time on my hands).

Glad to help out. I have limited programming skills, but pretty good knowledge of Tau army lists, and a lot of time to test or do whatever. ^_^

wow guys, thanks for the responses! Looks like I will go ahead with the project now.
Droping me and email at firstname.lastname@example.org would be fantastic, just letting me know who you are, and what you can help with. I think it would be the easiest way to communicate. If you have MSN aswell...email@example.com is my addy.
Ill keep posting updates here as I go along. I dont get much time to work on it unfortunently, because of work commitments, but hopefully, ill have a sample up online by the end of the w/e. Ill just have to see though.
As i've said in the othe rarmy builder thread, i would be very careful, from what i've heared off staff GW has a habit of trying to stamp out anything free that people seem to develope. This is only second hand info but i would be wary.
Besides that i think its a great idea good luck
Equipped with the latest XV25 Stealth Armour these troops are the 'love wolves' of the Tau army, operating independently of other formations.
This cock up is bought to you by GW Australia.
Sounds like a good idea and as far as being careful just look at www.thegreatuncleanone.com ( I assume thats the kind of things your making only for 40k). They've been up for years and its used by a lot of people as far as I'm aware.
I'd like to help but I'm fairly useless when it comes to PC code and the like.
I'll help where ever I can. I can test and do some data entry if needed, I can also make it look pretty if need be.
But Ill sure use the thing.
I wa thinking of making my own Army List Builder with Microsoft Excel, but then I thought why not do it with other people? Many hands make light work.
I am not too good with Databases but i have many of the codexes so i can provide information on various armies (Particularly Marines :happy
So If you are still looking for people to help with this project, count me in please.
It is insufficiant that I succeed - All others must fail.
