I have a lot going on, and currently working on my PinSound project for Getaway HS2. I've never really wanted a color DMD, but I've recently seen the PIN2DMD project and it interests me some (but not really enough to buy one right now). I've also noticed that nobody has officially/completely colorized a PIN2DMD for Getaway yet. So, my proposition is this: Are there enough Getaway owners to fund my purchase of a PIN2DMD setup (I'm estimating around $300-$400 depending upon who I buy from)? In exchange I will gladly develop and make available for free the fully colorized DMD coding for the game (I'm sure this will probably be 100+ hours based upon everything I've seen).
I'm happy to always share any updates I do, and solicit opinions/advice from those who contribute. My eventual desire would be to make whatever I develop public, but I would be willing to have a brief period of exclusivity (say 90 or so days from the time the coding is completed) for those who contribute to the project, if that is what is desired by the group.
Please let me know your thoughts and if you are willing to contribute a few bucks (or heck, one lump sum) towards the project. If not, no big deal. Again, I'm not motivated enough to do this for myself right now, but if I could fully fund the purchase of a PIN2DMD by the generosity of others, then that would be enough to move me to purchase along with the needed obligation to others to actually develop the colorization.
UPDATE: Okay guys, I've been thinking about this, and I have decide we are going to proceed for sure. Please PM me with whatever level you are comfortable donating. I will keep a list, and then in a week or so I will contact everyone interested with funding instructions along with my project plan.
