I am trying to create a Simple Chess Game Interface with just a few features. I want to light up the patterns of the pieces with color. I have created a model of how I would like to accomplish this. I need to add interactivity to the model so that the game of Chess can be played on it. There should also be a feature to allow the user to toggle the lighted pattern for each individual piece on and off by simply clicking on it. This piece of software does not need to be able to play Chess itself. It serves as a Graphic User Interface and is just a Chess Board and a Chess Set. There is no need for any decision making engine. There are already several hundred Chess Playing engines available for that purpose. The lighted patterns act like rays of light that emanate from each piece and as they spread across the board these rays affect squares and other pieces with either threat or support. I have attached several photo files to better indicate what I am trying to accomplish. I have 3d model of the concept that I created with Free version of Google Sketchup. I would like to sell this interface for profit, therefore for legal reasons it is necessary to obtain the professional license for Sketchup if you intend to use my model. Otherwise it will be necessary to rebuild the Board and Set using another piece of software. It is possible to light the piece patterns on an ordinary Chess Board Design but I very much prefer the use of my expanded Chess Board so that the lighted patterns can been seen more easily without obstruction from the Set resting on the surface. If possible I would like the lighted patterns to Strobe, Blink, Pulsate, Flow and Emanate in a very Animated fashion as indicators of threat and support of other pieces during game play. Take a look at my design and you will get a good idea of what i want. Also I would like to add audio effects as a way make this a more fun game experience. Thanks, Ron. PS. I cannot pay up front. Any compensation will have to come from sales of the finished item. I would like to come to an agreement where we can divide the profit. I initiated the concept and retain intellectual rights to my board design and this overall concept of lighting the piece patterns in this [url removed, login to view] can split what is left after site fees 50/50 if this is to your liking. If not we can discuss another arrangement. Again I cannot pay upfront. But I do need the assistance from a competent programmer to make an interactive model and light up the piece patterns. Contact me if you are interested in taking on this project. Thanks. There is no specific time limit or deadline but I would like to see if finished preferably within the next year or two if possible. This should be a simple task and there is no pressure. Chess is my hobby and this is a Great Idea with potential to become a very successful Chess Product.
