Looking for poker client developers
Date: 29.07.05 18:44 (Fri, 29 Jul 2005 19:44:41 +0200)
From: Joel Reymont
Folks,

I have a number of prospects looking for developers to build a client
to my poker server. One of the clients is offering 3K and until
December. The client would look like this http://wagerlabs.com/
OpenPoker5.png or, to be more precise, like http://www.partypoker.com.

I would prefer a poker client that works on Windows, Linux and Mac
OSX which means SDL, Torque, RealBasic or BlitzBasic as far as I know.

My site is http://wagerlabs.com and the technical info is at http://
wagerlabs.com/tech.

There's not much logic in the poker client as the server tells it
what to do. You can download the server (built in Erlang) from http://
wagerlabs.com/openpoker.tgz and look at the protocol in PROTOCOL.TXT.
Installation instructions are also included.

The connection is plain TCP right now, although it will move to SSL
later on.

I would also be willing to share revenue (10% say) with anyone who
builds an open source poker client that works with my server. My
licenses sell for $7-12k.

Please let me know what you think and feel free to join http://groups-
beta.google.com/group/openpoker? to post technical questions.

Thanks, Joel

The actual coding of this looks pretty easy, provided all the artwork
is already available. You should specify whether that's the case --
for an app like this, I would expect at least half the cost to be in
the artwork.

Best,

I have the artwork needed to build the client. In fact, the client
itself has been built once and is available at http://sourceforge.net/
projects/openpoker. That client is built in Delphi, though, which is
not cross-platform.

The graphics are very simple too as masks are available. To draw the
poker room at http://wagerlabs.com/openpoker5.png, for example, I
draw the carpet, the chairs and the table. I even have the RealBasic
code to do this.

I do not have the code to draw the card and chip sprites, or to draw
the Fold, Call, etc. buttons. The artwork is available, though.

OK, then this should be a pretty straightforward job. If you don't
get a response here, try looking for a consultant through our
website. There should be quite a few able to do this for a
reasonable fee.
