Announcement   Announcement : DiscreetFX Seeking to Add Resources for AmigaOS 4.x & MorphOS Development
   posted by DiscreetFX on 18-Mar-2012 1:29:28 (8478 reads)
AmigaOS 4.x & MorphOS community we have listened to your feedback and are now seeking additional resources for DiscreetFX Labs to develop Aladdin 4D 6.0 for AmigaOS 4.x & MorphOS. You stated it was taking too long and we should not work on the OS X Lion version first so we are talking your feedback to heart. We are looking for one Amiga and MorphOS programmer proficient in C. No naughty Windows, Mac or Linux skills required, your time will be spent 100% working on coding what you love, AmigaOS 4.x & MorphOS!

A past resume on AmiNet, OS4Depot or MorphZone is a plus, preferably in the 3D animation/rendering software department. What do you get in return? Part time steady income from your Amiga development, don't quit your day job. This will be a long term commitment so we are looking for someone that loves to code 3D animation applications that wants to take Aladdin 4D to the next level. We don't need you just for version 6.0 but version 7,8,9 and beyond. Since you make royalties plus regular pay the more you do the more you make. We want someone excited to bite their programming teeth into a large exciting Amiga project. In the future you may have to work with the other developer working on the OS X Lion version of Aladdin 4D 6.0 but this will not be necessary in the beginning. AROS will not be left out in the cold, we will also need assistance in getting the AROS version coded once the AmigaOS 4.x and MorphOS versions are complete.

Contact us via the link below please with your CV/Resume and reasons why you are right for job. You will also be required to submit your code on a daily or at least weekly bases to a CVS and Blog about your progress to our customers. The Wizard of Oz behind the curtain development cycle of Aladdin 4D 6.0 has not pleased us either and we want future development to be in the public eye so customers see rapid progress.

Contact


Best regards

DiscreetFX Team

Looks to me that they're aiming to be the biggest joke in Amiga history
since IWin.

This is positive news surely! Programming jobs in the Amiga world aren't that common and they obviously feel the market is worth stumping up for additional native development time. It's also good that they recognise it would be better if development was made more transparent and are explicitly looking for that burden to be met by the newbie :)

I wonder if any of the people taking the time to make negative comments about DiscreetFX are even interested in buying the final product ..

I would have considered buying it before but after the last "guess when we
will upload the video" charade I finally had it with them. If it's something
I can't stand that's someone representing a company and behave unprofessionally.

why, who ever was behaving professionally in the amiga scene anyway? insisting on attention to repetitive boredom is another matter.

True, but there are rarely big and pro companies left anymore.
Hope someone will answer the call and bring an end to the DiscreetFX having no new products "state of misery". At least they kept communicating, donating small bounties and prizes.

What a shame that, with the exception of realize and Sargiel, what you get are the naysayers.

I hope you get your coders and I hope the project goes well.

fantasizing as always are we? how do you define "big" and "pro" in this context?

@Rose

I have lost track of how many times I have asked Deron for that screen shot. Only he knows what is taking so long.

@djrikki:
happy-go-lucky?

@discreetfx:
obviously he managed to implement moving viewport around the object after all these years. apparently this is a new feature that wasnt available in the previous versions of this software? how on earth is that possible that you have released plugins for lightwave once upon a time? not that i ever had seriousl opportunity to test them.. maybe it was someone else..

@wawa

You do finally understand I'm not the coder of version 6.0 or any version right? DiscreetFX has paid for this contract work done by someone else. It's taking way to long I 100% agree. That's why we are trying to add another programmer to the project.
