We need a high quality Flash programmer to develop an online Flash Poker client for a play for fun site (this is not online gaming for real money!). There is existing client software to work with the existing server software, but a completely revamped client is needed. The existing clients (there are two) can be used as references. The new client should use Vector graphics, allow for a resizeable popup window, and needs to support customization and branding of the poker room, table, chairs, players, dealer, chips, and cards. As the existing client code can be reused or referenced, the project should be relatively straight-forward, but you must have experience with Flash game development, especially in writing performant animation code and dynamic, customizable graphics. As I am unsure of the scope, I only wish to have the bidding be based on an hourly rate, and I will be reviewing existing projects thoroughly. Once a bid is confirmed, the first phase will be to determine the workload and get an estimated price. If the time estimate is deemed excessive, then the project will be cancelled and rebid. We have built 2 of these clients already, and have a good idea of the time that will be required.
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.
